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.

AdamChandler (4049) - Enfield, New Hampshire, USA - SEP 21, 2012
Acquired this in a trade in February. Enjoyed with friends at cellar temp (60F) in a big red wine glass. 2011 vintage.

A - Poured a viscous thick black appearance. 2 finger totally espresso crema colored head. This head has decent lacing, nice alcohol legs and fades way faster than expected.

S - Bit of a smokey scent. Hints of black peppercorn and vanilla. Some espresso bean characters as well.

T - A lot spicier than expected but very delicious. Lots of vanilla, burnt / charred oak. Spicy up front and at the end. The middle is sweet, smooth and delicious. Some raisin and cherry characters.

M - Medium carbonation, very heavy body.

O - This was delicious and very drinkable. I expected a lot more spice but this was solid and very drinkable.

sayravai (4707) - Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 5, 2016
(0.75l, 2011 vintage, 11.5%, thanks 50belair!) Almost black with a small, brown head. Aroma has stale chocolate (cocoa nibs maybe not optimal for ageing), slightly soy-saucy maltiness and vanilla. Flavor is very interesting with cacao and vanilla clearly present, and chillies giving slight burn in the throat. Very full-bodied and smooth with low carbonation. Hard to say if there’ alcohol burn or not because of the added chili. Interesting, yet not the most drinkable impy. 6438

Maakun shares the legendary beer porn. Black with brown head(!) super roasted dry malts. Chocolate, flower petals, dried prunes, raisans, burnt wood, burnt paper, roasted peppers, vanilla, parfume, burnt matches, chocolate cake, coffee. Moderate sweet, steady bitter and mild spicey/peppery. Maximum bodied, smooth texture, good as no carbo but the pepper cleverly fills in with a prickliness on the tastebuds--who are my best buds, at this very moment. Oompf! Concentrated black mass. So thick and burnt, and not relying on sweetness. Awesome! Never expected a beer with pepper to top my all time list.

Maakun (2345) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - FEB 4, 2016
Bottle 2014 vintage, shared. Pitch black with dark brown head that looks like liquid chocolate. Must be the darkest head I’ve ever seen on a beer. Massive aroma of cinnamon, vanilla, flowers, chocolate, cocoa beans, smoked chilies, sweet espresso beans, fudge, toffee. Over medium sweet but not that sweet actually, with nice roasted bitter notes and light chili burn. Full bodied with thick syrupy feel. Massive beer, really fits my taste, well deserving of it’s status in my book. It’s actually almost balanced...

Jow (3037) - New York, USA - JAN 16, 2016
Bottle at home shared with family to finish off Pats win over the chiefs. This was thrown in as an extra in a trade with Ticyclist we did for some Polotmavy, yes you read that fucking craziness right. Any ways deep dark pour nose is chocolate and roasted malt some spice. Tastes of light spicing, roasted malt, deep dark chocolate, lactose, some earth. Nice palate easy drinking for the abv but maybe im already a tad blitzed, but with this big a bomber defiantly one to share, I guess that’s a warning to all kids out there with a bomber of hunahpu.
