Poured from a 32oz swing-top growler into a Duvel tulip
A - Dark black, deep brown 1 finger head with very aggressive pour.
S - Lots of Brandy right off the bat. Lots of chocolate and vanilla.
T - Sweet citrusy brandy! The most chocolate of any Hunahpu, lots of vanilla, and burnt caramel. The chilis and cinnamon are almost hidden behind the Brandy.
M - Super thick sludge! Syrupy, sticky, gets all over your lips and glass! Definitely the thickest Hunahpu of them all. Almost as thick as the freshest of Zhukov's. If you love sludge, this is for you.
O - Amazing! I've had all the Hunahpu treatments, and this is by far the best. Not as spicy, lot's more cocoa, and the brandy really sets it off. Drink at all costs!

Thanks to MEAT at Mr. Beery's Sarasota for pouring samples of bottle 32/84.
My first review, and I find it fitting since it's one of the best imp stouts I've ever had the pleasure of tasting. Thick as mud and little head when poured.
On the nose, obviously brandy, and that's a good thing. Spices and chocolate follow but they are definitely in the background.
Taste was ridiculous, the brandy came through immediately and lingered as the chili, charred wood and roasted characteristics came through. The booze was very present, lightly masked and hot, which I happen to enjoy... this could be a turnoff for some.
Overall I wish I could get my hands on more of this brew, it's a shame there are so few, but I'm glad there are people willing to share it.
