2015 opened almost a year after bottling. Much better then Abraxas, cinnamon is more mellow and overall makes for a much better experience and smoother beer. All the flavors compliment each other very well.

Living in Florida I've had the opportunity to have Huna on tap. To be honest, until recently I was never a big fan of the beer. Maybe my palette changed or I had a really good batch but I finally had what I think is an excellent imperial stout. What hit me this time was the cinnamon and touch of heat working so well with so many flavors of chocolate, coffee, smoke and more. I never realized how complex this beer tastes. I really enjoyed drinking this beer and will seek it out for now on.

Having it again on 5/8/16. I'm raising the look to a 5. I know this sounds ridiculous, but it has the best looking dark foam for a head. This beer is true luxury!

2013 bottle.
Consumed with a dark gumbo.

The nose is chilis and chocolate.
Taste is same but with some great dark cherry flavor creeping in. Well balanced. Dry finish.
Mouthfeel incredibly thick. Wow!

As a St. Louis boy, it pains me to say, but this is better than abraxas, mainly because the cinnamon is overpowering in abraxas imo. Great job, cigar city. Hope to try a ba version someday!
