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.

Jow (3319) - New York, USA - JAN 16, 2016
Bottle at home shared with family to finish off Pats win over the chiefs. This was thrown in as an extra in a trade with Ticyclist we did for some Polotmavy, yes you read that fucking craziness right. Any ways deep dark pour nose is chocolate and roasted malt some spice. Tastes of light spicing, roasted malt, deep dark chocolate, lactose, some earth. Nice palate easy drinking for the abv but maybe im already a tad blitzed, but with this big a bomber defiantly one to share, I guess that’s a warning to all kids out there with a bomber of hunahpu.

Gurthnar (4787) - 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.

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!
