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 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.

A Mes rate. Bottle at the Cask, big thanks to Andy.
Black as night with a very good brown head. A little cheesy and funky on the nose with a slight vegetable note. Not an amazing aroma if Iím honest. Once in the mouth however, everything changes. This is excellent stuff. A big chewy US impy stout with a really unusual but absolutely glorious smoky character. Amazing fruity stuff, yeast is obvious but really good, lots of American chocolate and some really tasty herbal and spicy hints. A little swift in the finish for the style but itís not a problem, you just drink more. Love it.

Bottle shared by moejuck. Black pour with a tan head. Aroma of chocolate, spice, a bit of roast and nuts. Flavors were nice, lots of spicy notes that didnít overwhelm and gave a distinct character to the beer and the sweet/roasted notes gave a balance to those spicy characteristics. Nice mouthfeel, full bodied and had a satisfying finish, no real noticeable booze. Overall, tasty brew that did really well with the smoked chocolate ice cream we dumped into it.

Pours black with a very nice dark brown head. Sticks around and laces the glass beautifully. Not very aromatic given what is in it. I mostly just sense the alcohol in the nose and get a bit of hops, and a little bit of the peppers. The taste is a mixed bag; sweet with a bit of alcohol warming the back-end; a little pepper bite on the tip of my tongue and thatís it for the spice; bit of chocolate and a hint of vanilla. Every now and then there is a slight burn in the back of my throat to remind me that there is peppers in this, but ever so slight. Very viscous and coats the tongue and mouth very nicely. Silky smooth. This is up there with the best in Imperial stouts, and a couple notches above DL.

Bottle. Huge thanks to two peopleís efforts for me to try this brew. Thank you brewhopperjay on BA and another big thanks to my girlfriend to hauling this to me in Geneva...and of course she is splitting it with me :). Really dense jet black oily pour and like an oil slick in a glass. Denser tan head that just leaves a patchy tan film on top. A lot of dark, nearly bitter chocolate in the aroma at first, then the peppers come in a little with more roasted coffee aromas than anything. I really love how this brew is barely sweet at all to my palate. Lots of dry, roasted qualities. Love the spice on top of the dense coffee and chocolate and very much enjoyed the bit of burn at the back of my throat from the pepper and alcohol combo. An awesome brew, and I have to say it lives up to the hype for me.

I would like to start off by giving a huge thanks to fata2683 for this beer. This is such a generous gift from my friend in the pan handle. Pured into a tulip. Of course it poured a thick, black with a dark tan head. taste is very complex. very dry and bitter. Peppers do come through at the end. Very thick and smooth mouthfeel. This is an awesome beer.

Super thick, syrupy and black as night. The aroma jives pretty closely with the flavor - dried hot pepper, cocoa powder, coffee and spices. Definitely has a subtle kick from the peppers and a good amount of sweetness. Quite complex, ridiculous and extreme but still avoids being a chore to drink.

#1800! Huge thanks to my boy drowland for this overfilled bottle of joy. Poured delictibly into my Cigar City snifter. Appearance has a thick thick black hue with a heavy bread-loaf brown head. Lots of stuff going on in the nose. Roasted coffee notes blend well with the spice of the chilis. Some vanilla aged wood also. Damn this is crazy already. Coating mouthfeel. Thick black coffee flavor with roasted nuts and malts. The peppers in this provide for a gentle mix of new and unique flavors. They also give the slightest kick which continues into the finish. Some dry bitterness on the finish, mainly attributed to the roasted notes. Fantastic, thereís no doubt about it.

bottle-HUGE thanks to Daknole for bringing what is my first Cigar city beer ever. pitch black with a nice kacki colored head with huge legs on the glass. huge nose of the whole kitchen sink of impy stout aromas-coca, chocolate, roast, oak, vanilla, anise-WOW! this is really complex! deep, sweet, big char flavors along with notes of lite pepper, huge dark chocolate. big alcohol here, but not really detracting at all. Its well integrated into the complexity of this beer. this is one mangler for sure-i would be dead after a 750 of this either by diabetic shock or alcohol poisoning. This could be the best impy stout i have ever had minus FFF 04 dark lord.

750ml bottle, pours a very viscous black with a big creamy dark chocolate head. Big nose of cocoa dusted chilie peppers a liitle less coffee than expected. Very creamy and thick on the palate. Light chilie spice, toasted cocoa and fresh coffee.

Wow. Creamy. Chocolate. The chili is there as it interacts with the chocolate. Very rich and thick. Quite intense.
