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: APR 6, 2010 Revised rating, bottle
Thanks to Diego for this one! Extra black and inky. Very dark head. You aren’t going to see through this. The aroma is crazy - milk chocolate, ancho and alcohol. Big and brash. On the palate, this is a rich imperial stout, very thick, with a great ancho and chocolate accent. Fun stuff.

Original rating, draught at the brewery. Extra black body with a rich dark brown head. Complex aroma - chocolate, tobacco, light ancho and dark fruit. Tastes like beer candy - ancho, lots of dark fruit, rich coffee, intense dark sugars, creamy black malts, cherries. There are so many layers to this it’s scary. A full value champion. 8-5-9-5-18 = 4.5

brokensail (12910) - Orange County, California, USA - MAY 25, 2010
A: Quite an ominous pour from the bottle. Viscous and black, creating a sturdy mocha head in the glass. S: I was worried that the chili peppers would overwhelm the beer, but they provide only a subtle spice to the beer which works nicely with the sweet components. Chocolate and vanilla, along with caramel and roasted malts complete the nose. T: A much more balanced flavor than the BA version offers. An inviting sweetness up-front of chocolate and vanilla, followed by a touch of bitterness and spice (chili and cinnamon) on the back end. M: A very thick and chewy feel on the tongue. The carbonation is minimal, as it should be and just helps to enhance the creaminess. D: The alcohol is nowhere to be found, but this one does pack quite the punch. A fantastic stout and one of the first CCB beers I’ve been really impressed by.

Theydon_Bois (12595) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 29, 2013
Bottle at Endo’s house, 25/05/13, thanks to Jason for securing this from the source. Mid black with a big billowing dirty tan head - this looks the bollocks! Nose is dark malt, chocolate, leather, demerara sugars, vanilla, pinch of spice. Taste comprises chocolate, dark malt, vanilla, spice, hint of chilli pepper, sugars. Full body, slightly viscous, smooth on the palate. Great stuff, ticks all the impy boxes, alcohol kept in check and not overly sweet.

750 from ericandersnavy. Pours very dark black/brown with a small fine bubbly dark tan/brown head. Aroma is very chili/veg over smooth burnt malt. Medium body with mild carbonation. Flavor shifts between burnt malt, chocolate and mild chile heat. B\ody seems to thicken with time. Vanilla comes out. My scalp sweats from capsaiscin. Pretty good stuff.

argo0 (12038) - Washington DC, USA - MAR 14, 2010
75cl bottle. Medium brown head that mostly dissipates atop a motor oil black body. Aroma is moderately sweet, rich cocoa, some vanilla, cinnamon, chili pepper. Taste is sweet, cocoa, dark chocolate, some chili pepper, light vanilla. The chili burn is noticeable, and while it builds slightly in intensity, it never overpowers. Sticky full body.

Tmoney99 (11822) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 31, 2009
Bottle from daknole shared by alexsdad06. Poured a reddish black color with an average frothy brown head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy roasted coffee, chocolate and spice aroma. Medium to heavy toasted chocolate malt flavor with a heavy dark bittersweet and small pepper bite finish of moderate to long duration. Full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. This is another standout beer.
