Tap at Hunahpus Day. Only had to wait 15 minutes to get it! Mahogany brown pour with short lived khaki head. Aroma is cherry fruit and almond extract. Taste is freaking delicious. Maybe the best chocolate flavor I’ve had in a beer. Huge cocoa powder flavor up front with cherry Almond Joy sweetness. Creamy mouthfeel. Best beer I’ve had here today, including Hunahpus.

UPDATED: MAR 11, 2013 Hunahpu 2013! Cloudy dark brown. Aroma of almonds and cherry pits hits of chocolate. Nutty boozy malty taste. Full body. I like the style but too nutty.

On draft at Cigar City pours aa black color, aromas of almonds, caramel, light chocolate, and some feint cherries. Flavors are the same, the cherries and almond flavor was very balanced, glad this beer was put back on, I enjoyed this beer.

Dark brown almost black with no head. Aroma of almonds, cherries and caramel malts. Taste follows, chocolate almonds and an afterthought of cherries. Sweet yet balanced, really nice treatment!

On draft at Cigar City. Pours the typical Big Sound dark caramel brown with an off-white head. Nose is sweet malts, some almond extract, big cherry, and some light Hershey’s syrup. Flavor is similar with the flavors melding together pretty well. Nice selection of complimentary flavors here. Medium in body and some lingering chocolate almond in the finish. Nice treatment, Jason!
