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.

Nische (1647) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - APR 17, 2016
2014 Bottle shared by wickedestman, many thanks! Pours black with brown head. Massive chocolate and cinnamon aroma with wood, roast, vanilla, dry cocoa and earth. Heavy taste of deep chocolate, cocoa, roast, coffee, cinnamon and vanilla. Lingering chocolate and coffee finish. Wow, this is just liquid magic. So many layers of intense flavor. Truly one of the most complex and best beers I’ve had.

ACHops (1222) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 21, 2016
UPDATED: MAR 23, 2016 2014 and 2016 bottle pours @ Cigar City. Pours thick inky viscous brown with thin oily dark mocha head. Aroma is toasted hazelnuts, dark chocolate, port, figs, leather, oily oak (much more notable in the 2014 version). Taste is similar, with the added dimension in chile heat that lingers on the finish (particularly the fresh 2016 iteration). Simply incredible depth of flavor, easily amongst the top barrel-aged imperial stouts in the world, grateful for the opportunity to try it. Truly, this is among the best of the best.

dinkle50 (1250) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 20, 2016
Jet black, oil like pour with a thin espresso head. Looks great. Aroma is full of sweet chocolate, a little cinnamon, hot peppers and some dried fruit. Smells great. Full mouth. Taste is full of chocolate, cinnamon & vanilla. Slightly spicy from the peppers. This reminds me of Chi Chi’s fried ice cream, if you ever got to try that. Not too sweet, perfectly balanced. Alcohol hidden well. No lace. Good stuff.

libertine (364) - rochester hills, Michigan, USA - MAR 14, 2016
Pours black with big brown head. Aroma of cinnamon, peppers, wet tobacco, coffee,smoke, chocolate and vanilla. Slightly sweet flavor. Chocolate, cinnamon, vanilla, earth and a very light heat from the peppers. Alcohol is hidden. Medium/full bodied with an oily texture. Sticky on the lips. The spice from the peppers come through more in the finish. Glad I made it to the festival.
