Had this beer at Hunahpu Day 2014. Was wary of trying it for fear of wrecking my palate for the rest of the tasting (after reading reviews of people who had tasted it before). This version of Hunahpu was not as-bad as I had read in other reviews. The ghost chili is definitely present, and if you were not ready for it, I could see this really being a turn-off. The heat comes on late, which is interesting and I think characteristic of the ghost chili in general. I only got to taste a half of a few ounce pour. I could NOT see drinking a full pour of this.

Overall, I don't see the point in a beer like this because too many people taste that type of pepper too differently. It wasn't bad--it was gimmicky. Glad I got to taste, but would not seek out again.

Serving type: on-tap

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.25

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.

Serving type: on-tap
