COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
In Mayan mythology, Hun Hunahpu was the father of the Mayan hero twins Hunahpu and Xbalanque. Hun Hunahpu, along with his brother Vucub Hunahpu, was tricked by the Dark Lords of the underworld and slain. Hun Hunahpu’s corpse morphed into a cacao tree, his head becoming a cacao pod, which in typically awesome mythology fashion, spit upon the hand of a young maiden named Xiquic who promptly became pregnant with the hero twins. The twins would ultimately grow up to avenge their father and uncle and defeat the Dark Lords and ascend the heavens to become the moon and sun. We brew Hunahpu’s Imperial Stout once a year and release it only at the brewery. We will continue to do so until the end of the cycle. Released on the second Saturday in March at the brewery.

Schokoladig malziger Antrunk mit an Weihnachten erinnernde Aromen. Leicht dunkel fruchtig, minimale Schärfe. Vollmundig, auch im Nachgeschmack weiterhin sehr malzig. 11/13/12/13/12/13

solidfunk (3892) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - AUG 18, 2014
Truly superior. The way this comes together with dark chocolate, some licorice anise, and something almost like biscotti. Pours black with great head and lacing. Tons of roast. Texture is velvety and thick. Bittersweet finish. Tap at Churchkey.

GothGargoyle (1159) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 16, 2014
Black with a small brown head, quite syrupy looking. Aroma is chocolate, toasted coconut, marshmallow, hint of chili, vanilla, coffee. Full bodied, rich and spicy on the palate with a little chili burn on the finish. Taste is chocolate, chili, vanilla, coconut.

Busick (379) - South Carolina, USA - AUG 13, 2014
Very good, but vanilla came across too strongly and made the beer almost too sweet! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

rondphoto (1928) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - AUG 4, 2014
Bottle @ Natifest / Cincinnati OH --- Opaque black, brown rim head, tiny dots of lace. Taste is chewy, thick caramel malt that expands through the palate to a touch of bitters in a long finish that turns much warmer as it proceeds. A solid brew, obviously strong, but still delicious. For me, a small glass would be plenty.

Experiment_Ale (994) - Dallas, Texas, USA - AUG 4, 2014
At GABF 2013. Pours black with nice creamy brown layer of head. Aroma is big thick roasty malt, chocolate, delicious, smooth, chocolate, pepper, vanilla, slightly nutty, very nice. Taste is silky smooth, chocolate, big roasted malt, small sear from the peppers, milk chocolate, absolutely delicious.

Salmoniform (567) - Sweet Home, Oregon, USA - JUL 31, 2014
Poured from bottle to glass. Opaque hue with fizzy brown head that held a ring. Aroma is chocolate, cinnamon, papaya, coffee, vanilla. Mouthfeel is great with a full body and zesty carbonation. Taste is sweet initially with a spicy astringent following and a nice ethanol finish. Overall this is a wonderful brew!
