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.

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, there’s 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.

Had on cask at red-light red-light. Smells of cigars, hops, and grass. Very murky and deep brown. It’s an amazing, if not perfect, imperial stout.

750ml From Kingdom Liquors. Pours really dark chocolate brown and thick with some light lacing. Initial reaction was wow is this smoky! Body is full and velvety soft. Oily and with low carbonation. Finish is a light bitternesss, really faint which is surprising to me. Cocoa is the star here with a pleasant supporting cast of vanilla, ancho and cinnamon in that order. The alcohol is hidden well yet warms in the finish. Dark chocolate with the hint of ancho isa really nice flavor. This is so easy to drink I think it could be dangerous at least for me. Overall this is the most enjoyable of the style I have ever had in my recollection. If I were able to, I would give palate a 7 out of 5. Kudos.
