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 Hunahpuís 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 Hunahpuís 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.

750ml bottle thanks to mikesgroove. 2011 batch I believe.
Appearance :Pitch black with small dark brown head.
Aroma : Big chocolate with hot peppers. Nice vanilla too. Very rich.
Taste : Hot peppers with chocolate, some coffee. Lots of hops. Finish is long, persistent and rather sweet. Lots of chocolate and coffee. Lots of hops also. Rather bitter also.
Overall : This is one big beer. Very sweet and very rich. Bitterness helps balancing out some of the sweetness but itís still pretty sweet. We were only two on this and I had a hard time finishing it. Very nice mix of chocolate and hot peppers both on nose and taste. Only reason why Iím not rating this higher is because itís a bit too sweet and it gets very cloying. Iíll always be very happy to snap a few ounces at tastings but Iím never going to open a bottle with only 2-3 people. I also donít think itís up there with my favorites RIS (Speedway, Darkness, Abyss, etc)

Been a long time coming to get one of these. Courtesy of Shaftie. Viscous Zhukov like pour with the darkest brown head I have seen yet. Just crazy gorgeous. Aroma was out of this world. Tons of cocoa and roasted malt, rather big vanilla sweetness and just a hint of spice. Not much from the chilies. Really in a league of itís own at this point. Flavors were also full of rich dark cocoa, lightly sweet, some vanilla and a hint of cinnamon and spice. Oh how this warmed up so nicely. A new top for me and worthy of all itís praise. The cinnamon and small hint of chilis really gave this one a íwowí factor. Quite incredible.

Bottle shared at the big Hair of the Dog PreSale Tasting... Poured jet black with an off-white head. Thick palate, full bodied, really coated the tongue. Nicely spiced, and quite balanced given all of the spices. Some malted sweetness and roast, honey, simple syrup, and an alcohol heat that crept in. Which Iím sure the peppers accentuated.

Epic tasting at Chrisís place with Dak in attendance. Knocked off 3-4 top 50 beers in one night. A bottle of this was passed around, and a bottle of the BA was passed around. An interesting discussion ensued. I actually preferred the smooth warmth of the BA, while others preferred the subtle nuances of pepper and cinnamin that were obscured by the strength of the BA treatment. This was rich and sharp. Definitely pick up the spiciness. Iíd love to have a 10 oz. pour of this to spend an hour with as it warmed up. Nice brew.

UPDATED: MAR 14, 2013 2011 Bottle at Fermentation Lounge. Pours pitch black with a creamy dark brown head with hints of ruby. Aroma is tons of unsweetened chocolate, cocoa, coffee, roasted malts and vanilla. Sweet cocoa up front and roasted coffee beans fading in chocolate with chiliís and cinnamon coming in at the end. Very rich body but not overly sweet and alcohol is well hidden. Extremely good beer.

Chocolatey aroma. Black in color with a deep tan head. Chocolatey, raisiny with a slight spiced complexity (almost cinamony).

750ml thanks to jrob21. Pours black as night with a thick skim of soapy, mocha brown head that has great retention and leaves a few specks of lacing. Aroma is roast, sweet malt, earth, autumn leaves, spice, chocolate, dark caramel and light ashy smoke. Flavor is roast, coffee, lots of chocolate, heavy toasted nuts, light smoke, spicy cinnamon, roasted peppers, earth, toast and vanilla. Finishes with toast,roasted nuts, molasses, vanilla and herbal hops. Palate is heavy bodied, creamy and a little sticky throughout with a light carbonation and fairly neutral finish. Fantastic beer, really just works deliciously from the first sip at nearly fridge tamp to the last at nearly room temp.

Hopper (827) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - SEP 23, 2011
750 ml brown bottle. 2011. Pours a thick bad ass used motor oil black with a head that is also black and some tan. iíve never seen a head so black on a beer. The aroma has chocolate, spices, vanilla, and some pepper spice. Wow the taste is like a chocolate milkshake and the more I smell it I realize there is a lot of bready qualities, very bready. The taste also has roasted, spices, chocolate. This is a massive beer and all its parts seem to work together very well. the palate is rich and creamy. This really reminds me of the Frrrozen Hot Chocolate at Serendipity 3 if anyone has been there. Possibly the baddest flavorful Imperial stout with out being over the top.
