On tap at Vav's tap takeover at the Norse Bar in Chicago. It was poured into a tulip glass (a generous pour at a reasonable price as well so seek this bar out!).

A: Black with some slight carbonation

S: Simply amazing; this smells like cinnamon/spice/vanilla/chocolate and in no specific order. This is a very balanced dessert.

T: Pretty good, but not my favorite of the style. Huge cinnamon and spice followed by subtle chocolate and vanilla. I got zero barrel out of it, but that is not a complaint as the traditional oak/bourbon notes may be a bad thing for this style.

M: Not as thick as a big RIS or BA RIS, but definitely not thin.

O: This is definitely an amazing imperial mole stout and the barrel aging really enhances the cinnamon/spice/vanilla/chocolate flavor and smell. Definitely way better than regular Abraxas and probably the best smelling stout I've ever had; however, I do prefer Hunahpu as I tend to like the Vanilla/Chocolate to be the dominating flavors.

I definitely recommend trying to get ahold of this beer, but not at the current asking price in ISO:FT. It is amazing, but there are a lot of beers out there equally as good or better.

Serving type: on-tap
