As is true with the base beer, the brew looks like an absolute beast. Perhaps the tar-brown head is less plentiful in this version; at any rate it is certainly shorter-lived. Where Hunahpu is flavored like a Mayan flourless chocolate cake or something, and Brandy Hunahpu tastes like, say, a decadent liqueur-filled chocolate truffle, this incarnation comes across like maybe akin to a Ben and Jerry's chocolate-coconut-cinammon-cayenne confection. Everything about the aroma and flavor are stunning; additional notes include vanilla, almond, (vague) anise, coffee, and dry tannic sugarcane (rum.) The feel is perfectly complementary: luscious and rich. Overall, this beer is phenomenal, top-to-bottom and start-to-finish (actually even better as it airs out/warms.)

black as night oil like liquid which had a huge tan head that really very slowly faded leaving behind lots of gooey sticky brown lace. Very frothy and pillow like head, lots of waves in it.

strong, main hints were of caramel, with some chocolate mixed in and a strong alcohol presence. Lots of wood, rum and alcohol notes and a smooth woodsy feeling. Lots of sweet vanilla and almost a mocha smell as well, very sweet overall.very very strong. It was smooth, with not alot of carbonation. Huge rum and whiskey type taste hit me right away as did the alcohol, this was not something to be messed with for sure. Very creamy thick feel and very strong alcohol presentation. Hints at french vanilla and a touch of chocolate rounded out the back side and added a bit of sweetness. Near perfection.
