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.

thewolf (11101) - Kolding, DENMARK - JUL 30, 2012
Bottle @ Fanø Slumber Party, 2012.
Pours deep black with a small, creamy, dark beige film head. Aroma has chocolate, is vinious, sweet, nutty and luscious vanilla. Medium carbonation, fat and creamy mouthfeel. Flavour is fairly sweet, nutty, chocolate, roasted, vinious, pleasantly elegant. At the same time in my face and subdued. Very good despite the sweetness. Warming in the finish.

Appearance: black, creamy brown head, drippy lace
Aroma: rich chocolate aroma with a light peppery character
Flavor: splitting only half the peppers leaves the flavor a lot sweeter in the bottle bringing out more of a rich chocolate character, peppery spicyness is in the background
Overall: I like the extra pepperyness of the draft which use all split peppery, but the bottle version is great as well

brokensail (10547) - 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.

Leighton (10419) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 9, 2012
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)

Bottle at The Stouts Tasting, London - thanks to Jack. Pours black-brown with a creamy, brown head. Rich dark malt nose, spices, dark chocolate. Big sweet flavor with oily chocolate, cinnamon and chili, dark char. Full bodied with fine carbonation. Hot finish with more oily, dark chocolate, light chili spice coconut, cinnamon, earthy bitterness, dark malts. Great stuff. (4.3)
