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.

Bottle via one of the people that sent me a bottle, thanks. Dark black pour, small but thick dark tan head. Chocolate, lightly roasty, lots of sugar, brown sugar, cinnamon, mild chili pepper, and a bit chalky. A nice imperial stout. Overrated? yes. I had the Sinners 2010 after this and enjoyed it quite a bit more.

750ml bottle shared by Sean. Rating #343. Inky jet black pour, thick and viscous with an unreal dark brown head. Sweet spicy chocolate aroma, dark fruits, really quite enjoyable. Spicy and a little bitter, dark chocolate and roast that sticks to the tongue for awhile, pretty good shit. (1476)

Poured into a snifter. Thanks to jyounger30 for a chance to try this one. Can’t wait to see if the beer lives up to the hype. 4.0 A: Pours a syruppy black color. Two fingers of creamy dark brown head with about average retention and some spotty lacing. 5.0 S: Wonderful nose. Right up there with the best of them. Complex with all the aromas collaborating. Sweet milk chocolate is by far the most prominent aroma. Blackstrap molasses, lots of toffee, some coffee, dark crystal malts. Plenty of roasted barley and toastiness to balance, but the sweetness still dominates. Vanilla is subtle and in the background. I may be detecting the cinnamon, but I’m not sure. Can’t tell there’s a chile in there though. 4.5 T: Sweet chocolate is most prominent again. Black coffee and roasted barley team up to give this an equally forceful roastiness and bitterness. Vanilla bean is subtle again, but definitely there. I definitely picking up the chiles now and they add a vegetal character, but I’m glad there aren’t stronger. The only problem I have with this beer is that the alcohol isn’t well hidden. 5.0 M: Heavy body with a silky creaminess to it. Good moderate carbonation. Thick, smooth, and silky is the way I like my Imperial Stouts and this meets all my requirements. 4.5 D: Very tasty beer with a wonderful nose and great mouthfeel. This is definitely the real deal. Time for another ISO. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 05-28-2010 01:48:02
