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.

Gurthnar (4480) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - JAN 13, 2016
Bottle at our elite tasting. 2012 vintage shared by MisoW, many thanks! Pitch black colour, dark brown head. Very intense and rich both in aroma and flavour. Assertive citrusy hoppiness provides the backbone along with the high hoppy bitterness. Then there is brutal roasty complexity with coffee, tobacco, actual cocoa, chocolate. Warm alcohol feeling, moderate strength. Thanks Miso, this was a worthy 4000th rating.

WingmanWillis (98) - Surrey, ENGLAND - JAN 12, 2016
Bottle shared at DoA tasting at Frank’s pad. Many thanks for sharing this. Pours oily black with a tan head. Chocolate and coffee on the aoma with plenty of booze. Taste is complex and has a warming boozy feel but holds the strength well. Chocolate is to the fore plus a little cinammon. A great beer!

Bottle shared, thanks Arturo! BOOM!!! Lovely heady and addicting nose, very rich and complex. drinks like a wine made of a delicious Black Forest Cake with a kirsch edge, dark cherries and chocolate with fun chili notes. My first Cigar City and not the least one, totally outstanding, out of this world experience!

Poured from bottle, 2014 vintage. Sweet but not overly sweet. Was a bit thinner than I was expecting which made the mouth feel a little less than other like imperial stouts. overall very good and would definitely love to get a couple of bottles again.

Smells like a great vanilla/cinnamon dessert. Some initial thick caramel head. Oily thick in texture. Flavor is slightly bitter and very cinnamon forward. Ends with a nice burn that’s not overwhelming. This is a fantastic base beer.
