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.

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. i’ve 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.

Jlo7399 (218) - Florida, USA - SEP 8, 2011
UPDATED: JAN 11, 2013 Pours black with dark brown head. Smells of chocolate and a bit of coffee. Tastes of chocolate, caramel, it’s nice and roasty and leaves a beautiful heat lingering on the palate. Alcohol content smooths out this beer nicely. Considered using it as cologne, but decided that anything other than drinking it would be a disgrace.

phillybeer7779 (101) - Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 30, 2011
2011 vintage. Very dark pour. Taste is of rich chocolate with a hint of chili pepper. One of the thickest beers bodywise I have ever had. Alcohol is hidden extremely well. Great beer, haven’t had any others quite like it.

potbeerjob (1343) - Denver, Colorado, USA - AUG 21, 2011
BLACK with dark brown head. Chocolate, gamey-meat, vanilla, thick meat sauce. Flavor is peppered and spiced all chocolate burnt up with caramel. Reminds me of a dark chocolate caramel out of a really nice box of chocolate with peppered meat added.

IluvatarMilan (282) - Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 15, 2011
Pitch black body with a small white head. This entire beer resonates class, strength, complexity. As such, detailed descriptions beyond the notion that this is quitessential imperial stout, are moot.

fletchfighters (1404) - AUSTRALIA - AUG 9, 2011
Only issue was the chile’s had already faded. The 2010 version I had in LA were still there. Big, massive and oily. Lots of chocolate, vanilla, cinnamon and marshmallow. impressive beer.

JAF737300 (1291) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 8, 2011
Pours dark brown with complex notes of vanilla and cocoa. The thick mouthfeel breeds notes of vanilla, sweet caramel, and some bright heat from the peppers. A nice long finish with continued heat.

bluebetty (1021) - AUSTRALIA - AUG 8, 2011
Bottle with thanks to fletchfighters. Pours jet black with great dark tan coloured head. Very oily in the glass leaving staining where ever it touches. Great looking beer. Very robust complex nose shows plenty of bitter chocolate, licorice, vanilla, tobacco and some roasted grain. Great stuff. Flavours are just as expected. Not overly sweet. Bitterness starts to come through near the finish and does some heat from the lacohol. Velvet mouthfeel. Very full. Amazing beer.

HandofMidas (12) - North Carolina, USA - AUG 5, 2011
Have had this fresh and aged. Drink it fresh the peppers are a bit more noticable obviously, and add that extra something to make this one stand out. With age it turns into a more typical yet still outstanding stout that has alot of viscosity and some good chocolate and caramel flavors.

pushkinwow (2568) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 1, 2011
2010 bottle curtesy of Matt, shared with Steve to celebrate a new job starting tomorrow. Viscous, opaque black with a dark brown head. Anice, dark chocolate, huge roasted malts, some booze, hints of vanilla and chilli. Full bodied yet smooth and somewhat creamy, starts slightly bitter, well carbonated, becomes a little more bitter with some sweetness from the vanilla balancing things out. A very good beer.
