2012 swing top growlier filled a little over a week ago.

A - Black body, 1/2 finger of dark brown head that forms slowly.

S - Chocolate, dark fruits, a bit of booze.

T - Chocolate, dark fruits, some pepper spice, brandy, hint of apple, cinnamon, wood/oak.

M - Very thick. Low carbonation, very smooth.

This beer is amazing. I've had the bourbon aged version as well, not sure which is better. They're like boozy milkshakes.

consumed at the cajun cafe beer fest.

P: Just like the regular hunahpu, pitch black and wicked looking, nice amber color head with good lacing.

The nose on this was unbeleivable. Not only do you get the sweetness from the chocolate, vanilla and cocoa, mixed in with the smell of brandy then to smell the slight heat of the peppers it was amazing.

So I really dont know how to sum this up properly I couldnt beleive all the great tastes I had in my mouth at once, chocolate, vanilla, cocoa, sweetness of the brandy followed by the slight bite of the peppers nirvana in my mouth.

The mouthfeel was great, perfectly carbonated just a slice of heaven in your mouth.

Drinkability, I would drink as much of this beer as often as i possibly could.

On tap at cigar city/tbc takeover at coffee district a month or 2 ago.

This was by far the highlight of the nite, seeing that this keg was tapped right before 6 pm and was gone by 7:10 pm.

Poured that wonderful jet black and murky color that a good imperial stout should be. What a nose on this beer, you could smell the apple brandy so much as it permeated the beer. Taste was smooth and fantastic, although you knew u were drinking a 11.5% beer the whole time. I'm just glad i had 2 before the keg blew, next time they make this brew at cigar city i will be driving to tampa to get my hands on some!
