2014 edition; obtained by Shannon before the shit hit the fan. Bless you,sir.
Poured into a snifter.

A: blackish brown. A short, foamy, half finger tan head that didn't hang around. Thick. Light lacing.

S: Chocolate, dark fruit, featuring dates and raisins, vanilla, cinnamon. Light chiles.

T: Comes in with a little heat, then dark chocolate, coffee and vanilla. Fruity, sweet. Syrupy; candied sugar. A tangy finish. Decadent. Delightful. Chiles pop up as it warms. Flavors go crazy!

M: Medium to heavy with low carbonation.

O: One of the finest beers I've had the pleasure of trying. Now I see what all the Hunahpu is about. Really sad about the melee at Cigar City. Maybe more folks can get access to it in the future.

S: Cinnamon with sudle chocolate, molasses, and a light pepper burn on the nose.
