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.

ClubGonzo (3854) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAY 22, 2014
Tap sample at CBC 2014. First tick of the festival - and a big one, for sure! :-) Pours a deadly syrupy black body with a tiny caramel brown head. Nose is cocoa, chocolate, syrup, mild coffee, cinnamon, vanilla, hints of Norwegian brown cheese, coca-cola and licorice. Taste is caramel, cocoa, vanilla, Norwegian brown cheese again, cinnamon, mild chili, hints of herbs and roasted coffee. Thick, oily body, soft to medium carbonation. A complex heavyweight which truly delivers! :-)

rouhlas (73) - GREECE - MAY 12, 2014
On tap at CBC 2014: version 2014. On tap at CBC 2013 versions 2011,2012,2013. Black with brown head. Roasted malty aroma, chocolate, coffee, spices, vanilla. Sweet and bitter taste more or less like the aroma. I liked 2012 version more than 2011 and 2013 because it was more spicy and I liked very much the 2014 version which had these spicy notes along with delicious aroma and taste of fresh chocolate and coffee.

Lukasmh (48) - Aarhus, DENMARK - MAY 7, 2014
Tap @cbc14. Pours black with big mocca bubbles around. Aroma is roasty and quite grassy. Herb like freshness. Lacing. Taste is dark chocolate, sweet and notes of coffee. Then some peppery herblike and dry long toasty finish. Amazing with so much freshness for a all black beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
