Served alongside Hunahpu's 2014.

The beer appears dark brown, near black, with a thin, oily beige collar. The aroma brings typical Hunahpu's quality: cinnamon, chilis, roast, chocolate. The aroma of the standard Hunahpu's is a bit more forward and edgy. Chili heat, booze, chocolate. Delicious. A bit smoother than the standard version, but perhaps lacking the aggressive onslaught of flavor found in the original. Splitting hairs. This is world class.

Bottle shared among friends and poured into a mini-snifter
I think I got one of the good bottles that are still left out there

A - Dark as night with a minimal mocha foam head. Pours very viscous and thick. This was poured at around 55 degrees and was allowed to warm up quickly using the mini snifter. Very very dark pour with not much carbonation

S - Smell is of brandy, chocolate, roasty coffee bitterness, with hints of cinnamon but not much heat. This smelled really good we all agreed.

T - Taste is more of chocolate fudge in your face with hints of cinnamon on the back-end that pairs with some vanilla and brandy notes. People say this is a shell of it's former self, but this was just as good as 2014 reg hunahpu

M - Thick, chewy, creamy and smooth. Cigar city never disappoints on this aspect

O - Overall, better than 2014 Hunahpu, but it doesn't stack up to DB Huna. I thought this was still excellent and might be worth seeking out again seeing as how the value has dropped pretty significantly

This beer has fallen off. Had it last month with a good friend, it's nothing but Brandy now.
In fact we all preferred a 2012 Black Tuesday over this beer. It's got an awesome aroma if you like Brandy, I do, but the taste itself is just too damn harsh. Compared to when these were first release this beer is a pale ghost of it's former greatness.
