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.

On tap Saturday at the brewery. Yes, this has some heat, but it's not nearly as bad as Habanero Sculpin. Your lips tingle, but the amazing Hunahpu base shines through, and my God is it glorious. Saw people pouring this out... for shame. I'd have bought a crowler of it and domed it if I could have!
