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.

Pours blach as night with a head that is almost as dark. Aroma is amazing. it smells like fresh coco. Tastes amazing. chocolate, coffee, spices, its salty, and sweet. bitter in the finish. notes of vanilla and caramel. some notes of brandy and oak as well. then when you think it is over you get all of the flavours again in the finish. this stout is amazing and is blowing my mind! this is the most complex stout I have ever had it is fantastic. an intense flavour expirience.

This was a very nice beer. This black pour with a very dark brown head immediately hits you with the aroma and flavor of cinnamon. As the beer opened up, the spice from the chilis along with the cocoa flavor chimed in. It was tasty.

Thanks for sharing bro! Pours a rich black color with brown creamy head that fades as it warms up. Aroma is of rich, dark fruit, dark chocolate, light vanilla, and fusol alcohol. Taste is dark chocolate, licorice, roasted malt, sweet malt, dark fruit, light vanilla, cinnamon and alcohol. This is my first CCB beer and I was pretty excited to try it. It’s definitely a good beer, but not my style of imperial stout. Definitely a solid impy though.

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.

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.
