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.

Chalumeaux (1247) - Middleton, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 14, 2017
Poured from bottle thanks Dchmela dated 3/8/14 rate 1200. Black oil pour with a thin tan head and nice lacing. Aromas of bourbon cinnamon roasted malt chocolate vanilla and chilies. Taste is luscious well balanced notes of chocolate dark fruit chilies that linger into the finish but don’t overpower. This was well worth the wait. Thanks Dave.

UPDATED: DEC 24, 2016 Bottle shared by Alex thx my man. Drank with the boys A: Bourbon, alcohol, figs, cinnamon rolls, roasty, licorice, raisins. App: pitch black sparing beige head. T/p: full body with moderate long bitter finish. Soft carbonation. Hotness from the alcohol. O: Impressive how the spiciness come through. I enjoy the hotness on this. Glad I share it since it’s a beast. I really dig that kinda cinnamon rolls aroma you get. A really nice winter warmer.

Stoned99 (1413) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 23, 2016
750ml March ’16 bottle shared with Ben, Seb and Jo. Aroma: big licorice, cinnamon and other spices. App: dark brown, sparing brown head, no lacing. Taste and palate: full body, smooth, lots of spices in mouth too but it’s much more pleasant than in aroma, light bitter finish. Overall: good but not great. Don’t think it deserves to be rated that high. But I’m not a big spice fan. On the other hand the texture is prefect.

anstei (1461) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - DEC 17, 2016
Bottle, courtesy through SinH4 and Jdizzle1, many many thanks! Pours black with a dark brown foam. Aroma is pure cocoa and hot chocolate. Body is heavy, boozy, but with the hot chocolate there is coconut and coffee. Super sweet and also boozy, but it works so, so well. Palate drowns in flavours. Oh boy, what a great, great beer. Worth all the praise!

Poured pitch black with a small tan head.. Aroma of roasted dark chocolate malt, roast coffee beans and some liquorice. Full body, flavour as per the aroma with some saltyness and vanilla smoothness. Dry, bitter chocolate end.

660ml bottle - thanks Enn! 2016 vintage
Very nice aroma, swwet, a glazed pastry with pistachios. Looks good. Dark, and a tight head. Tells me it’s going to be viscous. Not too heavy in the mouth, extremely full and smooth, a good consistency for a sipper. Chilli heat is obvious, but is kept remarkably mellow. Taste dominated by sugars, unsurprisigly, but is rather complex. Plenty pf piparkakku, and a nice chocolatiness to the roast. Very nice brew. Almost beer of the evening apart from the batch 028 Pohjala Oo that we pretty much started with, that had aged and become serious, this is young and still trying to stuff itself with candies, cookies, and chocolate. (It tied with a couple of other Pohjala Oo variants/vintages.)

Zer0 (1211) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - DEC 12, 2016
Bottled. Pours pitch black with not much of a head. Aroma is cinnamon, chocolate, "speculaas", coffee and vanilla. Pretty sweet, lots of things going on here. A bit spicy but not too much for me. Really viscous without much carbonation.

Mesjasz (1233) - Lodz, POLAND - DEC 11, 2016
W aromacie lukrecja, cynamon, sporo kakao, nutka paloności, Chipotle. Smak słodki, lekko gorzki, dużo lukrecji, trochę wanilii, paloności, kakao, kawy, melasy. Ciało jebitne, gęste i wykleja. Po utlenianiu mocniej wychodzą papryczki.

Korcz (1845) - Warsaw, POLAND - DEC 11, 2016
Hm, lekkie rozczarowanie. Zielona papryka dominuje w aromacie. Gęste, bardzo czekoladowe, cynamon, fajna papryczka na finiszu. Smaczne, ale liczyłem na więcej, szczególnie ta papryka w aromacie średnio przyjemna, bo w smaku to naprawdę kawał świetnego piwa.
