Thanks to my buddy robin for this one!!!! Poured in a goose island tulip.

Appearance - poured motor oil black and thick as a milkcomplement each otherth a deep robust chocolate mocha head.

Smell- right of the bat I get mexican chocolate ( bitter sweet dark chocolate with notes of spicy chillies) followed by a subdued sweetness. The aroma of this beer is fantastic and complex.

Taste- wow! Strong presence of roasted malt and bitter chocolate. The spice from the chillies is mild and not over powering they complement each other nicely. Finishes slightly dry.

Mouthfeel - Thick slick and chewy!!

Overall- phenomenal stout!!! Must try for stout lovers. Once agian cigar city has brewed one of the best imperial stouts made!!!

Let me start off by saying the night I drank this beer, it was the most amazing beer tasting night of my life. We (urwithdave and gtreid) started off the night by drinking a Kate The Great, followed by the Hunahpu, then a Darkness, a KBS and a Darklord, holy stout. But I am reveiwing the Hunahpu. What an amazing beer, the pour was jet black with the head a red in color, almost evil looking. Smell was malty, with coffee, cocoa and a faint smell of the peppers. You taste chocolate, vanilla, cinnamon followed by a subtle bite of the peppers. Very thick almost like you could eat it. I could easily drink this beer every day, if my pocketbook would allow it.

An amazing beer.

A: Awesome black with huge lacing and dark brown head!

S: Amazing. Oh wow, the charred malt base mizes so well with sweet and savory notes of chile, caramel, cinnamon, cocoa, vanilla bean and dark dried fruits. So awesome holy cow.

T: Follows the smell with big burnt malt notes, hickory BBQ, cocoa, chile spice, vanilla bean, cinnamon bun, and fudge. Again, wicked roasty. Sweet man not too sweet, savory as well. Outstanding, theres hardly the words to describe.

M: Nice feel, smooth as all get out and completely coating, everything a big stout should be.

D: OUSTANDING beer, man it's incredibly easy to put back being so big. Ever time I get to try this, I am consistently blown away.
