Huna 2015 vintage vs Bitches' Bank 2016
L: Huna=BB. A beautiful black thing.
S: Huna=BB. Rich dark fruit (especially cherry jam) notes, coffee and just a touch of cinnamon.
T: Huna>BB. There's cinnamon, chili, chocolate, spice. None are overpowering.
F: Huna>BB. Thick, rich, velvety.
O: Huna>BB. Fantastic beer.

2015 bottle poured into a snifter

A: A beautiful rich black body with a dark mocha creamy looking head.

S: Deep rich fudge and roasty malts and a little cinnamon.

T: Lots of the chocolate and a ton of licorice

M: Absolutely perfect rich creamy viscous thick absolutely coats the tongue and lingers.

O: The nose on this beer and the mouthfeel are out of this world. The taste is an absolute disappointment no cinnamon, no peppers, no vanilla just tons of licorice from being aged and a lot of chocolate. Hell there isn't even any heat from the chillis. Would love to try this fresh.

2014 vintage, a bit underwhelming - faded cinnamon and chilis. Would like to try a fresher bottle, but doubt trade value is worth the hassle. I'll stick to Oro Negro and Xocoveza for my cinnamon spiced stouts.

Been wanting to try this beer for some time, it was good but not mind blowing. I had a 2016 and it was in the bottle for approximately a year, so some of the adjuncts have faded significantly. The beer has a wonderful mouth feel, butci had a hard time detecting the cinnamon and vanilla. Will definitely try to get my hands on a fresher bottle this year.

This is the 2016 vintage poured on 12/10/16. Thick mouthfeel. The smoked chilis add a depth of flavor that is really nice. I think that is what separates this from other mole beers.
