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.

kbudd19 (515) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 1, 2014
2014 bottle, generously shared by Ferris. Thick black oily pour with a finger of mocha head. Aroma, vanilla, cinnamon, coffee, and roasted malts. Taste, thick mouthfeel, some sweetness up front, followed by some roast, finishes with a big wallop of spice. Overall, solid RIS, very unique, and not really like any RIS I’ve had before, lots of different things going on in the flavor, but it works.

750 ml bottle. Bottle shared at Huhzubendah tasting 9/25/11. The beer pours a true black. Light dares not pass through the viscous liquid. The head is dark tan/light brown, and the lacing is ample. Aroma is massive: an inviting combination of cocoa and chiles that brings to mind mole sauce. Oak and vanilla notes are also present, along with roasted malts and booze. Flavor is same, with cinnamon and roast in addition. Mouthfeel is thick and rich, and is clearly one of the great beers of our time. A favorite of mine. From notes 9/25/11.

On tap at CBC 2014. One of the best stouts to date! Thick and rich. Lots of chocolate and vanilla. Also has some unique spice notes, which give this beer a really interesting characteristic. Which they brewed more of this one.
