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.

mreusch (851) - Olathe, Kansas, USA - APR 7, 2010
750ml bottle, with thanks to both gunhaver and Ibrew2or3 for bottles. Pours a thick looking oily dark black with a moderate dark brown head. Aroma is mostly heavily roasted/burnt malts, with some cinnamon, vanilla, light pepper and chocolate behind that. Flavor is similar with the heavy roast throughout, and more background cinnamon, a little vanilla, some cocoa, and maybe the slightest pepper heat if I really look for it, but overall the burnt/roast malts mostly push any nuance out of the way. Decent enough, but was hoping for more complexity and dimensions with the treatments. Thanks for the chance to try guys!

TheEpeeist (3277) - Swarthmore, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 5, 2010
25.4 oz bottle. Dark brown with a creamy tan haze. Brown stains remain on the glass with lacy specks. Nose is dark chocolate, black olive, fudgy coffee and vanilla with spicy hints. Full body; chalky, almost gritty, with a mild buzz. Taste is huge chocolate, cinnamon, licorice and vanilla with toasted coconut coming through in the finish. Subtle chilis with a bit of heat coming out long after. Yum.

Tsotsi (178) - Florida, USA - APR 4, 2010
UPDATED: MAY 9, 2010 750ml Bottle. Pours black as night with a nice cocoa head. Smells of coffee, roasted malts, dark chocolate, and slight aroma of pepper and cinnamon. Full bodied, wow, so big and smooth. Flavors are full of dark coffee and chocolate, cinnamon, nice caramel sweetness, and a nice kick at the end with the chillies. Slightly bitter at the end as well. Awesome brew.

beernbourbon (1284) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - APR 4, 2010
Bottle shared by Kan, thanks man! Pour is almost unbelievably thick, dark, and rich. I have never seen anything like it. Also a very nice, full dark brown head that lingered for quite a while. Best looking pour I have seen to date. Aroma is more subtle than pour but still big. Lots of molasses, roasted malt, and brown sugar. Also notes of vanilla, light spice, and a background fruitiness that I think comes from the chilies. The chili aroma is not too evident beyond that. The flavor is also huge roasted malt balanced by molasses tones, vanilla, and a light chocolaty component that rounds out the flavor. Again, not really much action from the chilies but an amazing beer nonetheless.

Borresteijn (4543) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - APR 4, 2010
75cl Bottle, brought to Amsterdam by GodOfThunder, thank you so much for this gem! Black colour, pours like motoroil, deep brown head, the brownest I’ve ever seen. Aroma of loads of roasted malts, chocolate, sweet vanilla, light cinnamon, more spiciness. Flavour is sweet, vanilla upfront, hard roasted malts, lots of bitter chocolate and milk chocolate, a hint of cinnamon, slight peppery burn on the tongue, roasted bitter finish. Fullbodied, prickly but smooth and fat mouthfeel. Very very good indeed. No homerism detected here.

satan165 (1019) - River Grove, Illinois, USA - APR 3, 2010
saved approximately half of a 750 which spontaneously cracked in my cellar weeks after its safe return from tampa. served at cellar temp. still a few wisps of lace laid about the top of the beers surface, otherwise expected opaque pour with seemingly zero lacing. aroma is devoid of booze even completely unchilled. cornucopia of aromas speak to me: raspberry, grape and big organic earthy note similar to tobacco. chocolate is the star, this stuff like like glue and motor oil mixed, the glass is filthy and the lip is super sticky. chocolate is the most tantalizingly sweet example i’ve ever sampled until its gone and your mucky palate notices not the burn but the actual flavor of the chilies lingering on the roof of the mouth. a second bottle (which was still intact at last check) is currently cellared off premises but assuming it has and continues to survive a proper sample will amend this rating in a few weeks.

The aroma was out of this world. Dark body and an almond/tan colored head. This brew lived up to the hype.

Awesome beer, spicy flavor with a dry coffee finish. Almost dark enough to stain your glass!

Bottle from 5 points. Beautiful pour. Sweet, malty aroma. This is one full-flavored brew. Sweet, dark chocolate, cherries, vanilla, smoky/spicy peppers. Very nice brew.
