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.

KykoPatykar (21) - SLOVAK REPUBLIC - MAY 15, 2016
Aroma: Cacao, cinnamon, vanilla, little touch of chilli peppers, dark chocolate, coffee, roasted malts. Appearance: Pitch-black, tan 1-finger head. Taste: Medium sweet, medium bitter, hint of spiciness and hot from chilli in the background, basically everything from aroma you can also notice in taste. Palate: Full body, creamy slick texture, soft to medium carbonation, smooth, long medium sweet, spicy and chilli hot finish. Overall: Really masterly balanced, delicious, complex, one of the best spiced imperial stouts I have proved so far.

fraternie (988) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 2, 2016
Probably the best spiced imperial stout out there, this is simply loaded with complexity. Thick and oily, dark as night body, bursting with chocolate, burnt mocha and black fruit up front, showing complex elements of cinnamon and pepper spice underneath, adding notes of tobacco and leather. Endless finish.

GIJOE (1090) - North Berwick, Maine, USA - APR 29, 2016
UPDATED: MAY 7, 2016 Pours black as motor oil with a thin, creamy, dark-brown head that stays permanently. Sparse, oily lacing. Earthy nose with umami, nougat, charred malt, and chocolate. Notes of cinnamon and vanilla. Hints of tobacco and leather. Taste is dark chocolate bitterness and boozy warmth. Full bodied bliss! Among the best stouts I’ve tasted.

Nische (1920) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - APR 17, 2016
2014 Bottle shared by wickedestman, many thanks! Pours black with brown head. Massive chocolate and cinnamon aroma with wood, roast, vanilla, dry cocoa and earth. Heavy taste of deep chocolate, cocoa, roast, coffee, cinnamon and vanilla. Lingering chocolate and coffee finish. Wow, this is just liquid magic. So many layers of intense flavor. Truly one of the most complex and best beers I’ve had.

ACHops (1376) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 21, 2016
UPDATED: MAR 23, 2016 2014 and 2016 bottle pours @ Cigar City. Pours thick inky viscous brown with thin oily dark mocha head. Aroma is toasted hazelnuts, dark chocolate, port, figs, leather, oily oak (much more notable in the 2014 version). Taste is similar, with the added dimension in chile heat that lingers on the finish (particularly the fresh 2016 iteration). Simply incredible depth of flavor, easily amongst the top barrel-aged imperial stouts in the world, grateful for the opportunity to try it. Truly, this is among the best of the best.
