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.

2011 Bottle to glass, multiple 2-4oz pours. Thick, black pour. With a swirl, the viscous liquid coats the glass staining it amber for more than a moment. Aroma is chocolate, toasted wood, and vanilla. Taste is similar but even bolder plus the subtle addition of chile spice toward the end. Truly great and I can’t wait to try the Apple Brandy version. (from notes)

Donkerzwart bier met mokkakleurige schuimkraag. Dik, stroperig bier met aroma en smaken van koffie, (gebrande) noten, roast. Licht gebrande smaak met een overheerlijke vanille afdronk. Zéér goed in balans. Outstanding !! Een smaakbom.

Keg @Borefts 2016. Pours black tan head. Nose is chocolate, cacao nibs, liquorice, huge liquorice in fact. Taste is more of the same with some dark berry fruits, ever so slight chilli, some whisky big (HUGE) booze there is no hiding it.

750ml bottle obtained in a beer trade. Pours black with a nice lacy head. Smells of pepper and cinnamon along with a nice coffee roastiness. super strong spicy, cinnamon taste with a peppery, cocoa flavor. Great thick mouthfeel. Unique stout in my experience. Not yet acclimated to this style of stout but still enjoyed it. Very good.

Zlotta (2254) - Hagen, GERMANY - SEP 26, 2016
Sampled from tap at Borefts 2016. Pitch black with a beige layer. Sweetish-malty, quite roasty and umami aroma of dark chocolate, coffee, dark fruits, vanilla and soy sauce. Rather sweet, moderately roasty-malty, slightly umami taste of dark chocolate, coffee, vanilla, soy sauce and praline, followed by a medium long, rather roasty-bitter finish. Medium to full body, creamy and a bit effervescent mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Good!

van de tap tijdens borefts 2016. Zwart met een bruine kraag. Zeer bijzonder aroma met caramel kaneel en stoofperen cacao op de achtergrond. Smaak is heel smooth en begint met dezelfde zoete tonen, in de afdronk een mooi gebalanceerd bittertje van de donkere mout. Wat een topper!
