On tap at Hunahpu Day. Served in a snifter.

Appearance - Inky black. Mocha head. Stains the glass, as all these variants do.

Smell - Smells peppery. Much more intense pepper flavor than regular Hunahpu. Cinnamon and chocolate push through.

Taste - Initially, the pepper isn't that intense. It blends very well with the chocolate, cinnamon, and vanilla from the base beer. Rich chocolate. Then the spice kicks in. Like habanero peppers. It isn't overwhelming, but it lingers a while.

Mouthfeel - Spicy. Heavy and boozy. Medium low carbonation.

Overall - Intriguing, but no real improvement on the base beer. Small sips of this are all I would be able to take.
