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.

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.

2014 vintage bottle pour at Cigar City. Always good to stumble upon a top 10 beer when your hopes were high, but reality suggested otherwise. No more 2016 left, so the compare game is out. Jet black pour with a rocky brown foam head. Maple, chocolate, oak, smoke, and brown sugar make up quite the complex and intriguing aroma. Flavor is like the best cookie ever made. Thick syrup body, sweet chocolate, vanilla, oats, and a dry, teasing finish. Wife hates it. I LOVE it!

I’m not a huge fan of regular Huna, but I still have to give this 4.3. Much better than regular Abraxas, Mexican cake, and bomb! The best non barrel aged spiced stout.

Aroma: Cacao, cinnamon, vanilla, little touch of chilli peppers, dark chocolate, coffee, roasted malts. Appearance: Pitch-black, tan 1-finger head. Taste: Medium sweet, medium bitter, hint of spiciness and hot from chilli in the background, basically everything from aroma you can also notice in taste. Palate: Full body, creamy slick texture, soft to medium carbonation, smooth, long medium sweet, spicy and chilli hot finish. Overall: Really masterly balanced, delicious, complex, one of the best spiced imperial stouts I have proved so far.
