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.

Beautiful black pour with the most crema-like head you could emagine. Smells initially ’green’ or vegetal with clay aromas? and aromatic chili. The licorice is more profound than the chocolate I think. Develops nicely very early and becomes softer and more balanced. The mouthfeel is thick and coating and the fizz is really gentle - which I like. Taste is very complex with a lot going on and yet it is well balanced. Lots of malts and even a slight candied quality. Vanilla makes its entrance on the nose too.. Thick, creamy, elegant and a beast at the same time. Great use of the peppers. Just enough to know its there. Really impressive. (2012 edition)
