2014 edition; obtained by Shannon before the shit hit the fan. Bless you,sir.
Poured into a snifter.

A: blackish brown. A short, foamy, half finger tan head that didn't hang around. Thick. Light lacing.

S: Chocolate, dark fruit, featuring dates and raisins, vanilla, cinnamon. Light chiles.

T: Comes in with a little heat, then dark chocolate, coffee and vanilla. Fruity, sweet. Syrupy; candied sugar. A tangy finish. Decadent. Delightful. Chiles pop up as it warms. Flavors go crazy!

M: Medium to heavy with low carbonation.

O: One of the finest beers I've had the pleasure of trying. Now I see what all the Hunahpu is about. Really sad about the melee at Cigar City. Maybe more folks can get access to it in the future.

A: Pours a pitch black with a half finger chocolate head that dissipates to a sudsy top and lacing.
S: Cinnamon with sudle chocolate, molasses, and a light pepper burn on the nose.
T: This is very tasty. sweet chocolate, coffee, and cinnamon really balance well. A light chile burn, almost not even there though.
M: Silky smooth. Full body and heavy on the palate.
O: I love how everything blends perfectly together.

2014 vintage poured to a 2013 Hunahpu's snifter.

MIdnight black, 1/4" medium brown head. Poor retention, minimal lacing

Cinnamon. molasses, chocolate, and just a tinge of green chile. The peppers are much more pronounced as it warms.

Fresh, it's all cinnamon on the front end which meshes perfectly with the chiles mid palate and then finishes with a lingering chocolate flavor. Chicory, molasses, and maybe a touch of the vanilla. Fantastic. Just a hint of soy sauce flavor would be my only criticism.

Thick, syrupy, very low carbonation. mild chiles so just a hint of heat,

This is easily one of my favorite beers of all time, and although I prefer it with a bit of age, it's still top notch fresh.
