On tap at Hunahpu Day. Served in a snifter.

Appearance - Inky black. Stains the glass. Nice mocha head, but after a while it's gone.

Smell - Incredible coffee aroma. No acidity. Earthy coffee. Rich chocolate. A hint of that Zhukov licorice in the back.

Taste - The coffee flavor is immense. Never domineering, but it's the main attraction of this beer. Rich and blends perfectly with the chocolate. Molasses flavor in the back end.

Mouthfeel - Heavy and viscous. Low carbonation.

Overall - I've missed this beer multiple times over the years. I'm glad I finally got to try it. Worth all the elbow-throwing at Hunahpu Day.
