750ml bottle, blue waxed, from the 2011 release. finally found a good reason to crack this one open...board certification! pours massively dense, smooth, and silky as only Hunahpu’s does, with a rich, rusty red head that leaves thick, oily sheets of lace. aroma is classic Hunahpu’s, heavy dark chocolate, cinnamon, cold coffee, vanilla, peppers, and dense roast with a beautiful twist of toasted oak, dark fruits, coconut, and smoky whiskey notes that emerge as it warms. flavor is truly masterful with smooth, rich dark chocolate, Mexican coffee, cinnamon rolls, nutmeg, and roasted malts backed by smooth vanilla, wickedly subtle pepper heat, and ash with perfectly integrated touches of toasted coconut, oak, and dry whiskey with a touch of peat. palate is pure Hunahpu’s with over-the-top density, smooth carbonation, and a lingering finish of spices, whiskey, and subtle heat. overall, i put this just a hint behind the two brandy variations but it’s still one of the best brews I’ve ever tasted and gets a 5 from me.

Thanks to KickInChalice for the chance to try this. Chocolate brownie and vanilla bourbon on the nose. Some alcohol as well. Hard to believe they’ve improved the regular, but they have. Impressive. Pour is beautiful – viscous, super dark, a touch of dark brown head. Flavor is incredible. Rich chocolate, vanilla, bourbon, a bit of cinnamon. Viscous, thick, rich, decadent. Without a doubt one of the best beers I’ve had.
