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.

Very good, but vanilla came across too strongly and made the beer almost too sweet! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle @ Natifest / Cincinnati OH --- Opaque black, brown rim head, tiny dots of lace. Taste is chewy, thick caramel malt that expands through the palate to a touch of bitters in a long finish that turns much warmer as it proceeds. A solid brew, obviously strong, but still delicious. For me, a small glass would be plenty.

Salmoniform (992) - Sweet Home, Oregon, USA - JUL 31, 2014
Poured from bottle to glass. Opaque hue with fizzy brown head that held a ring. Aroma is chocolate, cinnamon, papaya, coffee, vanilla. Mouthfeel is great with a full body and zesty carbonation. Taste is sweet initially with a spicy astringent following and a nice ethanol finish. Overall this is a wonderful brew!

trade via lazjuarez. WOW! what a fantastic beer, had a 2014 bottle and was blown away. it gives of a roasty nose where you can pick up a little bit of each ingredient. but the taste was amazing, each sip you took showcased a different portion of the beer weather it was the cocoa nibs, the cinnamon the vanilla or the chiles. each sip was different from the last and was a great beer to try. absolutely worth the hype!

Shared after the massive let-down at Huna’s Day 2014 when one of the share guys overpaid for a bottle, which we poured into the commemorative tasting glasses. 2014 vintage. Opaque black body with a tan head that settles but leaves good lacing for such a high ABV brew. Aroma is cocoa, coffee, pepper, cinnamon, and dark malt. Taste is off-the-charts good - sweet chocolate, vanilla, and malt; bitter spice and coffee; subtle chili pepper and booze warmth. Full body, thick, creamy texture, soft but appropriate carbonation, warming boozy finish.

furthur (211) - Eagle River, Alaska, USA - JUL 20, 2014
Bottle, black opaque body, sheen of espresso foam. Aroma is molasses, plum, vanilla. Taste is so complex! Plum, raisin, chili, vanilla, chocolate. Slight heat, sweet mid palate, but dry finish. Palate is rich and thick, carbonation subdued. Just superb!

Douberd (2589) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - JUL 20, 2014
Taster at Zeebra II. The pour is thick and black as motor oil and creates a small but thick dark brown head on top of the beer. Quite good retention for its size, leaves a thin circle of foam around the glass. Aroma has lots of chili peppers and even more cinammon that seems to fade at first, but rejoices after a bit of swirling the glass around. Cardamon as well. 4 First taste is of the spices, with cardamon coming first, followed by a bit of cinammon, molasses and just enough chillies to be notable but not to burn, at least not initially - there is a soft burnijg on the back of the throat. Really nice with the condiments offering something different. Full body, silky texture on it, carbonation just right. Overall this was great, worths the hype.

Naka (708) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 19, 2014
Pours black like motor oil with a milk chocolate colored head. Aroma is cocoa, raisins, molasses, and dried cherries. Flavor is coffee and black roasted barley with vanilla. A strong warming alcohol. Some dried sweet dark fruit in there, too. Great rich mouth feel. Finishes warm and bitter.
