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.

2015 bottle enjoyed during college football. Pours jet black and opaque. Nose is dark chocolate, vanilla and cinnamon. Taste follows with a silky mouth feel that coats and seems to last forever! One of my favorite stouts!

2014 bottle. Holy hell worth the wait. Pours silky deep black with chocolate head. Great bitter chocolate, vanilla. Coats your entire mouth. Finish seems to linger for ever. Worth the wait to try it.

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.

At BBF, very dark opaque brown color, dominant aroma of chocolate and raisins with hints of black pepper and nutmeg, intense chocolate flavor light mellow bitterness, not too heavy. Exquisite.,

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.

UPDATED: DEC 5, 2016 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 hot peppery and chilli 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 (2367) - 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 tap @Borefts 2016, wat een bier om de dag mee te beginnen, op dag 1 gemist, dan gelijk maar meepakken. zwart met beperkte kaki kraag. schenkt als motorolie, aroma van stevig geroosterd, gebrand, laurier, dik. smaken zijn plakkerig zoet, chocolade, volmoutig, cacao, smooth, zacht, rijk van smaak, volle body, lage co2, goede smaken. hmm toch heb ik betere Europese stouts geproefd dan deze..
