COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Ale with Cacao Nibs, Cinnamon, Vanilla, and Ancho and Pasilla Chiles added.
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.
Extremely dark in color with a brown head with notes of big notes of chocolate and espresso, moderate notes of vanilla and cinnamon and mild notes of tobacco and chilis. Flavor opens with a big blast of chocolate and moderate espresso with notes of dark toffee and interjecting notes of vanilla with lingering hints of cinnamon and tobacco and chili notes with a mild scoville heat in the finish.

UPDATED: MAR 16, 2019 Bottle shared at Alex's birthday. Pours a pitch black with a brown head that lingers, then dissipates. Beautiful nose with cacao nib and at the forefront. Medium bodied with cacao nib and vanilla mild cinnamon and nice heat from the chili peppers. Lots going on here and everything works well together without any cloying sweetness.

UPDATED: MAR 4, 2019 2019/03/03 - Pours jet black with a foamy tan head that quickly dissipates and leaves. Aroma is rich chocolate, treacle, vanilla, roasted malts, cinnamon, earthy and vegetal notes. Taste is cocoa, chilies, vanilla, cinnamon, roasted malt and earthy notes. Almost like a spiced hot chocolate with chilies. Mouthfeel is medium to full and oily with a sweet, toasty, warming finish. Exceptionally smooth.

BlackHaddock (9501) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - FEB 20, 2019
UPDATED: FEB 20, 2019 1st Feb 2019; 7th International Pre-Brugge Beer Festival Beer Swap, De Bierboom. Big sample from a large bottle. Tanned foam for a head, black bodied. Nice warm aroma with coffee and chilli to the fore. Taste is also leaning towards a chilli/coffee flavour with some chocolate and vanilla too. Liked the subtle chilli notes, blended nicely with the richness of the coffee and chocolate taste.

Inbreak (9151) - Loddefjord, NORWAY - NOV 25, 2018
03.05.2013, 0,75l bottle (2011 vintage) sampled @ CBC:
Fint brunt skum, tjukk sirupsaktig konsistens. Lett fyldig og sødmerik lukt med preg av mørk malt, humle, chili, mørk sjokolade, mørkt sukker, kaffi, karamell, tre, kanel, vanilje, lakris, gras. Lett tørr og syrlig sødmerik smak med preg av mørk malt, humle, tre, røykt chili, mørkt sukker, kakao, gras, kaffi, kanel. Middels bitterhet som set godt. Veldig god.

2012 vintage - litt mildare lukt, ikkje fullt så tørr smak.

2013 vintage - mindre chili, meir lakris i lukt, meir syrlig smak.
