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.

sayravai (4708) - Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 5, 2016
(0.75l, 2011 vintage, 11.5%, thanks 50belair!) Almost black with a small, brown head. Aroma has stale chocolate (cocoa nibs maybe not optimal for ageing), slightly soy-saucy maltiness and vanilla. Flavor is very interesting with cacao and vanilla clearly present, and chillies giving slight burn in the throat. Very full-bodied and smooth with low carbonation. Hard to say if there’ alcohol burn or not because of the added chili. Interesting, yet not the most drinkable impy. 6438

sjogro (2269) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - FEB 4, 2016
UPDATED: MAR 18, 2016 Maakun shares the legendary beer porn. Black with brown head(!) super roasted dry malts. Chocolate, flower petals, dried prunes, raisans, burnt wood, burnt paper, roasted peppers, vanilla, parfume, burnt matches, chocolate cake, coffee. Moderate sweet, steady bitter and mild spicey/peppery. Maximum bodied, smooth texture, good as no carbo but the pepper cleverly fills in with a prickliness on the tastebuds--who are my best buds, at this very moment. Oompf! Concentrated black mass. So thick and burnt, and not relying on sweetness. Awesome! Never expected a beer with pepper to top my all time list.

Maakun (3397) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - FEB 4, 2016
Bottle 2014 vintage, shared. Pitch black with dark brown head that looks like liquid chocolate. Must be the darkest head I’ve ever seen on a beer. Massive aroma of cinnamon, vanilla, flowers, chocolate, cocoa beans, smoked chilies, sweet espresso beans, fudge, toffee. Over medium sweet but not that sweet actually, with nice roasted bitter notes and light chili burn. Full bodied with thick syrupy feel. Massive beer, really fits my taste, well deserving of it’s status in my book. It’s actually almost balanced...

Cigar City Hunaphu 2014 Bottle shared by @beercation - thanks for the hook up! Deep inky black with a ruddy tan head. Amazing nose with a spice/floral component from the chilies & vanilla. The taste is 90% cacao, berries, sweet, vanilla, terrific.
