A- Pours a very thick and dark brown. Settles into the glass as a black looking liquid with no head to speak of. Poured almost syrupy, so even with a vigorous pour there was no head.

S- Sweet sugary vanilla, caramel, hints of dark fruits and cinnamon, the brandy comes through as a sugary candy aroma. Very nice and not overpowering.

T- A big, rich stout with tons of roasted malts giving way to some cinnamon and vanilla, with lots of sugary sweetness. Lots of sweet liquor-like flavors in the middle, with the sweetness giving way to a hint of spicy pepper and cinnamon on the finish. Lots of interesting flavors come out and share the spotlight.

M- Thick, rich, syrupy, huge mouthfeel, one of the fullest stouts I have ever had. Carbonation is at a low level, which works nicely with the body.

O- This is a great beer that showcases lots of complex flavors, good use of a barrel and a great mouthfeel. Well worth seeking out.

Had at the hunahpu's vertical dinner.

A- same as regular. black as shoe polish

S- Chocolate, chile, vanilla, with the added layer of brandy sweetness

T- Very little "boozy" taste to it. The brandy compliments the notes already in Huna perfectly. best way to improve upon an already stellar beer

M- thick and sticky. very little to no carbonation

O- simply excellent. Can't wait to see what variation is done for this year's Hunahpu's
