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.

750 ml bottle from the brewery tap. Black, second darkest brown head I have ever seen. Aroma of grapes and chili peppers. Taste is thick, chewy chocolate and cocoa nibs, bacobits and ribs. Interesting and complex, lots of flavors going on.

Black color; medium sized dark brown head. Light aroma of roasted malt, chocolate, cacao, light alcohol, very light vanilla. Thick and quite viscous mouthfeel; very strong chocolate flavor, lightly smokey, salty; light chili pepper too; tobacco; more liquorice in the end, with warming alcohol. Peculiar, very good, not easy, but bold.

harrisoni (15792) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUL 18, 2010
Bottle at Chris’ Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia tasting. I’ve had this twice now, so thanks to both Puzzl and Ken for allowing me the chance to drink this. Oily coconut. Very decent, but lacks a lot of character. Decent, hides alcohol well. Smooth creamy dark choc and I did have quite a bit of this so I must have liked it, but still doesn’t hit the heights, plus I scored it 3.5 the first time and 3.6 this time so pretty consistant.

UPDATED: MAR 25, 2013 Bottle at Chriso’s Pre-GBBF Shindig, 2012, London. Thanks to Ed - and Paul (if I recall correctly)! Pours deep brown-black with a thick, brown cream head. Aroma holds some lightly tangy dark malts, booze, heavy roast, some spice. Big sweet flavor, lots of dark malts, stinging alcohol, some dark fruits, raisins, tar, burnt wood. Full bodied with fine carbonation. Hot finish with dark baking cocoa, acidic coffee, booze, charred wood. It has a dry, vinous quality to it. It’s quite hot. Not overly sweet, which is nice. Very, very good. (4.2)
