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.

Petrucci914 (910) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 30, 2010
Thanks, Dan! Pours a dark dark oily-slick brown color with a medium mocha head, and leaves no lacing. Aroma is cocoa, dark roasts, vanilla. Mouthfeel is very sweet, oily, and sugary. It’s almost way too sugary and thick to enjoy. It’s not bad but it is nothing to rave about.

Dfonorow (1440) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 22, 2010
Pours black with a milk chocolate colored head, very small carbonation bubbles and very nice lacing once the head fades. Aroma is very strong and includes notes of chocolate, cinnamon, coffee, and sweet malts. This is a very heavy brew! The smell is like someone mixed Starbucks with a liquor store. The taste is not nearly as strong as the aroma but includes most of the same stuff: Coffee, chocolate, vanilla, and alcohol (right at the end). This is a great beer.

Motor oil black pour that’s coats the glass like it really is crude oil. Small brown head. The aroma is soy sauce, dark fruit, some slight chillies, big bitter dark chocolate and lots of background smokiness. The flavor adds in a big espresso body with a hint of cinnamon. Viscous, oily, full body with low carbonation.

Labonix (19) - Illinois, USA - JUL 20, 2010
This beer pours a deep black with an aroma of chocolate and little bit of pepper. The taste is good chocolate, coffee, and a little spice. I’m more impressed with how the beer feels in the mouth. Its nice and thick and leaves a nice coating in the mouth and throat. I look forward to trying more of cigar citys beers based on my feelings of this beer.

StefanSD (2131) - Lakeside, California, USA - JUL 19, 2010
750 ml bottle courtesy of Dakine. Pours a jet black color with a small brown head that soon fades to a fine ring. The aroma is strong with chocolate, tar and cocoa. The flavor is a mixed bag of spices, coffee, cocoa, molasses, chili peppers and vanilla. The palate is full and smooth, full almost to the point of being chewy, the carbonation is lively. Finishes long with lingering spiced cocoa. Overall: A very tasty concoction, my first reaction was very favorable, but as I sipped my way through the bottle I became less enthusiastic. Still, I appreciate the experimental spirit in brewing, thanks CCB.

Bottle at Chris’ Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia tasting. I’ve had this twice now, so thanks to both Puzzl and Ken for allowing me the chance to drink this. Oily coconut. Very decent, but lacks a lot of character. Decent, hides alcohol well. Smooth creamy dark choc and I did have quite a bit of this so I must have liked it, but still doesn’t hit the heights, plus I scored it 3.5 the first time and 3.6 this time so pretty consistant.
