    This beer seems remarkably similar to Hunaphu, which makes me think these need to be consumed relatively shortly after they're bottled (depending on how forward you like your flavors to be). What would your opinion be on starting a vertical? Useless? Foolish? Interesting?

    I would say foolish. Just like Hunahpu's, with the ingredients added to this one, it's almost certainly best consumed fresh, unless for whatever reason you've had it and find the flavors to be too strong now and want them to fade a bit. That's, of course, a matter of personal preference.

    Regular Abraxas was absolutely wonderful when it came out so I'm expecting this to be the same. I wouldn't bother aging any of these type of beers if you want to taste the ingredients that make it special in the first place (Hunahpu's, Mexican Cake, etc).
