Cigar City Brewing Hunahpu’s Imperial Stout Double Barrel Aged
Cigar City Brewing Hunahpu’s Imperial Stout Double Barrel Aged is the 2014 version of Hunahpu’s aged in Rum and Apple Brandy barrels and then blended together. A truly phenomenal beer, but then again so is the standard version of this!
The biggest change to this is the aroma, I’m getting a bunch of delicious coconut which was a bit of a surprise. Think of an almond joy dipped in chili spice and you get an idea of how this smelled. The taste has all of the regular Huna goodness: rich dark chocolate, dry (slightly burnt) roasted malts, subtle chili spice/heat, vanilla, etc. The barrel aging really makes this a lot sweeter and smoother, ironing out the “rough” edges of the original.
This is a great beer, well worth the effort to acquire. I was really happy I was able to share my bottle with the rest of the BDR crew.
