Wow - just as everyone else gave this one mad props, so will I as it deserves. Thanks for opening the growler G311. It pours very similar to the Hunahpu’s with a dark thick black oil-like appearance and the perfect caramel and dark cinnamon color super-lacey head. I could barely get the lacing off the glass when I was rinsing it. The aroma has huge delicious smooth coffee notes and light chocolate notes. The flavors of that coffee comes through amazingly - as another review stated - better than the best coffee beer AND best coffee beer I’ve ever tasted! There are some chocolate and roasty notes too, but nothing tastes as good and shines through on this impy stout like the coffee. Then the body, like Hunah, is creamy, thick but smooth, and perfectly carbonated. That creaminess with the coffee notes are soooo good.
Serving type: growler

On tap at Hunahpu Day. Served in a snifter.
Appearance - Inky black. Stains the glass. Nice mocha head, but after a while it's gone.
Smell - Incredible coffee aroma. No acidity. Earthy coffee. Rich chocolate. A hint of that Zhukov licorice in the back.
Taste - The coffee flavor is immense. Never domineering, but it's the main attraction of this beer. Rich and blends perfectly with the chocolate. Molasses flavor in the back end.
Mouthfeel - Heavy and viscous. Low carbonation.
Overall - I've missed this beer multiple times over the years. I'm glad I finally got to try it. Worth all the elbow-throwing at Hunahpu Day.
Serving type: on-tap
