Ripe and spicy! Raw hide, baby! Hop on the Hunahpu express because everyone is invited! Like Burt Lancaster rolling around the Hawaiian shores with Deborah Kerr, this thang is torrid! Big, deep chocolate and spice like Beyoncé eating a piece of Hershey’s! I mean hot! Jay Z, move out of the way! Cuz Bae is here to stay!

Ayyyyeeeeeee!

2016 release, bottled December 2015. Thick and black on the pour, with a thin layer of delayed-action head coming to life like a reanimated zombie. Rich chocolate and vanilla on the nose, with some chile aroma and mild cinnamon. Tastes like a Mounds bar with half the coconut traded in for cinnamon instead, but it manages to get a prominent cinnamon flavor without being overwhelming or aggressive. Likewise, the chile peppers are present in flavor but not in any level of spicy heat. I think I would try sitting on this for longer if I get another bottle at some point.

Was expected more from this beer with such a big reputation. A touch thin in body as well.

Pours a thick, oily pitch black coloration with a small, creamy head. Smell is somewwhat subdued, pretty underwheming compared to the taste. Cinnamon is most noticeable, with a sort of odd earthy, musty aroma being pretty dominant as well. Perhaps a hint of coconut there. Taste is lots of chocolate and vanilla noticeable at first, with a decent bit of cinnamon and chili coming through as well. The chili really grows as you drink and the beer warms. Quite noticeable in the aftertaste in a really pleasant way. Hardly any boozyness there at all. Mouthfeel really is fantastic, very thick, sticky, almost oily and very smooth. This is really nice for a non-BA stout, but I have to say that I would still prefer SN Narwhal or Kernel's Imperial Brown Stout. I do like chili, but all in all this does not seem perfectly balanced and frankly overrated.
