2013 bottle from the last true Hunahpu's day at the brewery, and poured into a belgian style globe glass after some warming time from fridge temp. The pour is as dark as night and offers up a brief cap of milk chocolate foam, likely the darkest cap I've ever seen on a big stout.

Aroma of light chocolate though more dry and with carob notes. Touch of alcohol when still and a good balance of roast/espresso notes, yet never towards char/smoke. Taste is sweet and spicy with some grainy texture and chile spice balancing the ABV and keeping it from being too much of a malt bomb.

Feel is quite smooth even with a bit of a lighter carbonation level than I would prefer(and had on another bottle actually). Offers a long and delicate spicy finish and easy drinkability, particularly with a lack of overbearing sweet/viscous quality. Overall pretty solid but excessive variation from bottle to bottle seems to be an issue. Taste and feel impress while smell/appearance need more carbonation to do so predictably.
