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.

UPDATED: MAY 28, 2013 Tempting aroma and perfect midnight pour with a crazy complex spicy taste and mouthfeel that constantly changes. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

gramity (1510) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 22, 2015
Pours as viscous as motor oil with a tan head with ruddy highlights. Smells like vanilla ice cream in a cocoa sauce spiked with red pepper. Dark chocolate, roasted malt, with a tinge of spiciness that hits the side of the tongue. Finishes long with a bite of the pepper with no hint as to the 11% alcohol bill. Loved it - my kind of beer.

750mL shared by disposable income Dan, thanks! Pours deep dark brown with a milk chocolate brown head. Aroma is dark chocolate, coffee, roast. Flavor is amazing semi sweet chocolate, mild pepper, cinnamon in the finish.

Peacehammer (624) - California, USA - JAN 3, 2015
2014 release. Opened 7/13/14. Thick black, quarter finger of fast dissipating dark chocolate head. Perfect cinnamon, and a touch of pepper on top of dark chocolate on the nose. One of the best smelling stouts I’ve ever had. Flavor is tons of great cinnamon, with a nice pepper skin/heat. Dark chocolate and roast espresso on the middle of the palate, and a finishing hear. So beautifully smooth, but also complex, and drinkable. A great balance of big flavors. In my top 3 stouts easy.

heavily roasted malts, caramel, vanilla, cinnemon, peppers, herbs, chocolate and a bit of dark fruit. Amazing blends of tastes...just amazing.

Bottle shared by adnielsen during Christmas in Vail. Thanks Aaron! Pours a black color with tan head. Brownie, cinnamon, spicy peppers aromas. Spicy, chocolatey, fudge, cinnamon flavors. Some alcohol burn but it works with the spiciness. Fuck yeah

crajun (1010) - , Texas, USA - DEC 21, 2014
bottle from trade a couple of years ago - aged for 2.5 - 3 years. might have been a shade too long. In addition to the great aromas of spices, wood, ash, chocolate there was a little vinous aroma. nice palate. Taste was ok, but not outstanding; didn’t live up to the hype for me - also didn’t take detailed notes as I drank this 2 weeks ago - would try again, but won’t seek out...

Aurelius (4445) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - DEC 19, 2014
Bittersweet cocoa, leathery, pruney, boozy aroma. Wine bottle, decent label. Pours like used 10w40. Sour, chocolate and coffee, subtle burn, raisins and dates. Warming. Overall effect is greater than the sum of the parts. Chewy. Great finish with lots of complexity that leaves me wanting more. Thanks to someone at Baby Proof for sharing. 2011 vintage.

What can I say? Cigar City Hunahpu’s Imperial Stout lives up to the hype. Nice dark pour with a tight, tan head. Aroma is spicy blend of ancho chiles, chocolate and cinnamon. Taste is more of the same. The high alcohol content is hardly detectable -- nothing but smooth. Huhahpu is an intoxicating mixture of flavors that isn’t matched anywhere. If you have the chance, do not pass up Hunahpu!

John25 (734) - Middletown, New Jersey, USA - DEC 8, 2014
Bottle. Oily black. Aroma is chiles and cacao. The taste adds brown sugar, cinnamon, more cacao, and some vanilla. Warm, smooth, rich feel but, drinkable. This beer is amazing. Perfect execution and waves of flavor elements. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Pours oily jet black with no head. Aroma is dark fruit, fudge, cinnamon and peppers. Taste adds brown sugar, cocoa and graham cracker. A hint of vanilla bean turns up in the aftertaste. Thick sticky mouthfeel with a very long finish. Amazing.
