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.

Sask89 (553) - Regina, Saskatchewan, CANADA - MAR 13, 2020
UPDATED: MAR 14, 2020 2018 on tap. Pours pitch black with a creamy mocha head. Aroma has noticeable cinnamon and cayenne pepper scents with slight chocolate notes. Taste is dry with a nice sweet and bitter balance; quite nice. Full body, nice carbonation, and somewhat creamy on the palate. Excellent beer in every respect.

tfontana (2558) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 13, 2020
UPDATED: MAR 13, 2020 Bottle (3/14/15) pour courtesy of trade with Johnnniee--thanks, John! Appearance is opaque black with dark brown sheen across the top with finger-width reddish-light brown, crackling fizzy head with poor retention and no lacing. Aroma is strong malt, milder chiles, vanilla and cinnamon. Taste is strong malt and chili spice, late cinnamon, vanilla and mildest cacao. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with smooth texture, pleasant heat (chile? alcohol?), soft carbonation and finish as taste. Overall, a somewhat surprising amount of chili spice and heat given the age--have recent experience with chile adjuncts withering after a year--but think, as good as this is, that it would be better fresher as something seems a little bit off. Am guessing this would be a bit more decadent fresher. However, I'm psyched to have had this at least once--thanks again, John--but would relish the opportunity to try again.

UPDATED: DEC 20, 2019 Very good. There are many beers that are copying this formula of peppers, cinnamon and chocolate; this is one of the better ones.

jrodooo5 (2189) - DOVER, Delaware, USA - NOV 3, 2019
UPDATED: NOV 3, 2019 Chocolate followed by heat. It’s bold & powerful. Not sweet & not exactly an easy drinker but the flavor explosion lives up to the hype! Imperial with the added heat. Wonderful!
