Had an NWIBDU tasting. Thanks!

S - Peppers, chipotle, dark chocolate, vanilla, caramel, rum barrel, and dark fruit

T - Dark chocolate, fudge, tons of cinnamon and caramel. The rum comes through to add flavor and complexity with its light booze and spice presence

M - Thick and chewy with light astringency from the peppers

O - Amazing huna with a great rum presence.

Bottle shared by pokgye. Thanks, Jason. Typical Hunahpu's appearance: inky, oily black with a small but lingering dark brown crust. Big vanilla and cinnamon aroma, with chocolate and molasses coming from the huge malt foundation. Barrel is present but feels more integrated than the whiskey versions. It lends a brown sugar sweetness that makes this version of Hunahpu's feel even more rich than usual. Huge on the palate, heavy on dark chocolate, molasses, vanilla and cinnamon. The peppers have largely dropped off. The rum barrel lends a sugary sweetness with little in the way of oak. Chocolatey rich finish, very little bitterness or alcohol presence.

Big thanks to Torgo for bringing this last night!

A- Pours a midnight black with a dark mocha head that leaves a few webs of lacing behind.

S- Rum soaked dark fruit, spice cake, dark chocolate, burnt caramel, oak, roasted malt and a hint of chilies.

T- Lots going on with sweet rum upfront followed by cinnamon, black cherry, fig, dark chocolate, molasses, burnt caramel, cocoa powder, chilies , oak and a hint of char.

M- Low carbonation with a smooth body that Finishes a tad of hot. The barrel aging seems to have thin this beer out a bit.

O- Really surprised how much chili presence this had, despite being over a year old as well as being in a barrel. The usage of the rum barrel was a nice addition as it did not overpower the base beer, but I'm not sure if I preferred this version over the regular Huna. Still a really tasty beer and something that I was very happy to try.
