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.

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.

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.

UPDATED: MAR 3, 2012 From a 750ml bottle. Poured a dark brown, almost black color with a pretty small dark tan head. Aroma is a roasted malt one, with touches of pepper and cocoa. Flavor is rich, full of subtle roasted pepper, vanilla, cocoa, roasted malt flavor. A sincerely fantastic brew.

Update: March 2, 2012 I had this again. Much fresher than the previous bottle and wow, this was better. Score has been re-averaged between the original and updated scores.

Aromas of milk chocolate, fresh coffee, malty sweetness, dust and some spicyness. Flavors are baker’s cocoa, espresso, vanilla, earth and some alcohol. A tingly, moderate bitter, coffee/bittersweet chocolate, dry and warming finish. Great stuff----Thanks Buddy!!!!

dak with the hookup! shared 5/31/10. tasted right after kaggen and it held its own! the pour alone is worth a 5... thick viscous black with a creamy orange tinted head. lots of foam clings to the glass. there’s definitely chilis in the nose.... along with black pepper, raisins, cinnamon, vanilla, dark chocolate, roast, a little rubbery smoke and a touch of sourness. the flavor is all of that but much more intense... ash, chocolate, cinnamon and peppery spice are amped while it finishes a bit tart. the aftertaste is a nice blend of dark cocoa and vanilla tobacco followed by mellow sweet smoke. the body is on the fuller side with slick mouth feel. dryness really keeps it toned down and terribly quaffable. 8/5/9/5/18/4.5

Big nose of cocoa, liquor and tabasco. Appearance is black and oily with nearly no head. Flavor matched the nose, with real astringent liquored body. Palate was heavy and oily. A big, interesting beer.

bleeng (1565) - Houston nowhere near Beersel, Texas, USA - JUL 11, 2010
750 shared by maltomeal at the July Houston RB tasting. Thanks Bill. Poured jet black. Nose is very smoky, ashy. Taste is the same with added spices, smokiness and sweetness. Body is thick and chewy. Tough to rate this one after having a FW Parabola. This stood up pretty well and is unique in it’s own way because of the sharpness and spiciness not normally found in an impy stout. Good drinking beer.

A decent offering, well worth the money and i’d possibly get it again. Just didn’t knock my socks off. I just dont think it deserves the hype, a very fine RIS, great overall flavor profile, a little hot for my taste, i think this is what most people look for in an RIS, just not my taste.
