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 Hunahpuís 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 Hunahpuís 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.

brokensail (16057) - Dublin, 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 Iíve been really impressed by.

UPDATED: APR 6, 2010 Revised rating, bottle
Thanks to Diego for this one! Extra black and inky. Very dark head. You arenít 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 itís scary. A full value champion. 8-5-9-5-18 = 4.5

MiP (15296) - SÝnderborg, DENMARK - NOV 14, 2009
Handbottled. Sweet vanilla aroma. Black colour. Small dark brown head, reddish almost like copper. The flavour has some cinnamon, sweetness. Subtle warming feel, at first it seems like alcohol, but it is probably the peppers. The flavour is very sweet with a distinct roast barley note, but it is balanced OK by the alcohol and chilli. Perhaps a bit too many flavours added, but at least they are quite subtle. Very late coffee aftertaste.

jtclockwork (14999) - , New Jersey, USA - JUN 18, 2010
UPDATED: JUL 5, 2015 One of the best beers Iíve ever had. Pours jet black with a quickly dissipating reddish brown head. Nose is vanilla, oak, subtle chillies peppers, cinnamon and coffee. Taste is full and in your face, but velvety smooth at the same time. Chillies are present in the background, but donít burn. I detect some licorice, chocolates, coffee, chilies, vanilla beans and a whirlwind of other flavors I canít even describe. The only thing keeping this from a 5.0 is that there is no head retention. Otherwise, this is the perfect imperial stout. - Original rating 6/18/2010 - 4.9

mcberko (14644) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 12, 2012
Rating #2500. 750mL bottle, sent from Glouglouburp (thanks a lot, Dany). Pours pitch black with a small brown head - looks beautiful. Nose of mild chili peppers, which donít overpower, cocoa nibs, vanilla, hint of cinnamon - the chilis are slightly more prominent in the nose than in the flavour... Flavour is dominated by rich chocolate cake, with vanilla beans, burnt caramel, and subtle chili peppers - the chilis start off more prominent, but then fade into the background. With each additional sip, the chilis becomes less and less noticeable, paving way for intense chocolate cake qualities. Rich layers and full-bodied. Very well-made and enjoyable.
