2011 Hunahpu, reviewed from notes taken back in December 2013.

A: Looks like black. Head slowly formed, the way a nitro beer would after the pour. Head was dark brown and laced the glass.

S: Dark chocolate up front, with coffee hints (which are slightly acidic). Fruity aroma is mainly pomegranate.

T: Sweet, with bitter chocolate, moving cleanly into a slightly coffee flavor mixed with a slightly chile skin type stunted vegetal taste. Smoothly spicy aftertaste, mixed with chocolate and sour coffee taste to end.

M: Creamy but not too thick. Flows easily without getting too overwhelming. Slightly acrid, but has a great smooth finish.

O: Excellent in all aspects, especially mouthfeel. Was easy to drink and had enough tastes to keep each sip fresh.

Pitch black with a half inch head, no lace.

The smell starts with chocolate, graham cracker and cinnamon, sugar at the finish. Very intriguing smell.

Talk about a flavor explosion! Spicy cinnamon and graham cracker and bittersweet chocolate start this. There is a bit of earthy goodness and vanilla in the middle, straight spicy chili pepper finish! Goes down thick and a bit boozy.

Believe the hype! A very well crafted imperial stout! I hope I can get one to cellar!
