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.

This was the 2014 Huna. Sampled this side by side with 2014 Dark Lord. So cinnamony and hints of chilies. The aroma is amazing with cinnamon shinning through. Vanilla beans are slight but add a great depth to this beer. The 12% ABV is hidden amazingly well. Soo smooth. This is an incredible imperial stout. So much depth of flavor. Can't wait to try the double barrel Huna. This is on of the best beers I've ever had the pressure of trying. A++++ ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Keg at the Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2/5/2014 yellow session. First beer of the day! Thick black treacle viscous pour with a relucant tan head. Aroma is dark fruits, raisin, soft roast. Flavour is massive brown sugars, figs, raisin, tart cherry. Full bodied, smooth palate, viscous on the tongue and light mineral chalk. So much depth of flavour. Verry very smooth. Some wood and tan leather.

just realized haven’t rated this before. Rating based on 2013, though an off year still an incredible beer. Pour is pitch black and thick with a burgundy mocha head which settles quickly. Aroma is dark chocolate, espresso, vanilla, cinnamon, and pepper..in a good way reminds me of Dr Pepper. Taste follows suit matching the aroma with all flavors blending well throughout the palate - love the slightly tart umami quality in the mid palate, bitter chocolate in the finish, the pepper is perfectly done with prominent flavor and only a hint of heat.Palate thick and chewy sticking to the glass and the tongue. Amazing beer even in an off year.

2014 bottle. Pours deep brown/black with some slight tan head, caramel bordering...head fades quickly. Aroma is cinnamon, faint espresso and milk chocolate. Taste is like a chocolate cinnamon roll sprinkled with mild chili flakes. Cinnamon, vanilla and chocolate all very present along with the warming chilies in the background. Adds volume and kick without ever being spicy. Just an amazing mixture of awesome here.

2013 bottle. Tastes like dark chocolate, licorice and molasses. The chiles and cinnamon aren’t very present anymore. Leaves a lingering dark chocolate bitterness. Great beer, but I would like to try it fresh.

Enjoyit (3450) - Vadum, DENMARK - JUN 21, 2014
Black of color with a brown head. An aroma of mint, coffee, chocolate, weak sweets and spice. A flavor of chocolate, mint, coffee, spice, roasted malt and some very weak chili notes?

Pours black with a small cocoa brown head. Aroma is cinnamon, peppery barbecue and rich malts. Taste is cocoa up front with spicy peppers and cinnamon kicking in for the mid and finish. Really nice.

Pours dark black like oil with some tan head. Chocolate, some grain, a little coffee, and some sweetness on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with a nice roasted character. Very good, very complex stout.

This beer was as close to perfect as I have had. I taste all the flavors in waves, chocolate, vanilla and chili spices. The pour was thick like used motor oil and I sipped it slowly, savoring every drop. Unfortunately I only got one bottle of Hunahpu and I can only hope to come across another one in the future.
