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.

Thick dark brown head over what is apparently motor oil. Sweet, very alcoholic nose, with quite some vanilla, and other, difficultly to place fine aromas. Speculoos liquified, spiced, peppery, speculoos herbs (cinnamon, allspice, vanilla,...) Surprising and excellent; in the finish the spices become really Tex-Mex with chilies of different kinds. Sharp, spicy, hot and yet pleasing; quite well-bodied. Mole sauce in a beerbottle. Admittedly, the contents of this bottle justifies the Florida Cigar City craze to at least some extent. Many thanks to Evan & Matt!

Bottle generously shared at the RBSG grand tasting. Pours black with the darkest of tan heads; absolutely beautiful pour. Aroma is rich of liquid chocolate with notes of raspberry and red pepper. The flavor is wonderfully liquid milk chocolate with a slight touch of red pepper. Mouthfeel is incredibly silky and reminiscent of "cool" hot chocolate. This is lovely, although I got more heat and sweet spice from the Bourbon Barrel Aged version.

From notes. May 2010. HUGE thanks to Armin for this one! Pour is a very dark brown, with a nice mocha head that fades fairly quickly. Looks like a pretty standard IS, smells like a pretty standard....wait. Is that chili pepper? And vanilla? And bitter coffee, chocolate, oak, roasty goodness, all wrapped up into one snifter? Simply sublime smelling, with all of the aromas blending perfectly, complimenting without competing. Taste suffers somewhat, as the first sip lingers and muddies the distinctive flavors in the subsequent tastes. Finishes slightly weak compared to the way it starts.

Perfection! Received this bottle from Chairmissing and I can’t thank him enough! A: The darkest, thickest beer I’ve seen to date. Decent carbonation. S: Coffee, chocolate and vanilla. T: Let me start by saying I came into this beer very skeptical. I never believe the hype behind beers but this left me speechless. I let the bottle sit for about 20 minutes after taking out of the fridge, poured into a snifter. The first taste was strong chocolate and alcohol with a interesting aftertaste. As it warmed the cinnamon and chili became quite apparent. The strong chocolate hits first then some malt and to finish it off the chili hits the back of the tongue simply amzing and this is now the most complex beer I’ve ever had. O: Can’t describe how much I love this beer. There is no way I will miss the release next year. I wouldn’t trade away the cellar to try it but if you have a friend near the brewery or someone offering you a bottle for a decent trade definitely do it.
