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.

Hell, it’s about time. Draft at CCB. 2012 batch. Nose is loads of cinnamon and chocolate. A hint of vanilla and roast round this one out to make it quite pleasing. I like how you can easily identify each element of flavor/aroma to this beer. Pour is jet black with that dark khaki head. Stains the glass...almost permanently haha. Taste wise this one is loaded with more cinnamon and vanilla flavors. Earthiness probably from the chiles. Lots of nice chocolate and roast. Good stuff and very well rounded. One of the beers that deserves hype.

UPDATED: MAY 15, 2013 2013 bottle from Hunahpu Day
Appearance - Oily black body, dark brown head
Aroma - Coffee, vanilla, pepper, cinnamon, molasses chocolate
Taste - Dark chocolate, coffee, earthiness, vanilla, cherries

I’ve had every year’s version except the first one, and this time they really nailed it. So much chocolate and pepper with a soothing vanilla presence, all brought down to a clean coffee finish with a touch of cinnamon. So much going on here, and it seems to change as it ages quite dramatically.

Bottle. Thanks Noize. The aroma has chocolate, some vanilla, fruitiness, roast, hint of spice. Black coloured beer with just a small beige head. The taste is bit bitter, bit sweet, has chocolate, roast, berrie-like fruitiness, vanilla, some coffee. Medium-full bodied imperial stout. Quite complex, full of taste sensations. Nice one.

2011 Bottle; Pour is the most ridiculous thing I’ve witnessed thus far; motor oil consistency, with a very dark amber / khaki head in this glass. Retention is average, with some light lacing as well. The nose is astringent, cinnamon, cocoa............ the flavor profile reveals more, however. I feel like the appearance was the highlight on this brew; regardless. the flavor profile reveals the chiles... i was expecting more out of them, honestly. Cinnamon, vanilla, cocoa, chocolate, dark fruits, and more chocolate honestly. Very impressive brew, worthy of it’s place on the list. There is a hint of metallic, it’s sweet, some bitter roast as well. Nice... obviously.

UPDATED: MAR 12, 2012 From notes. First reviewed 1/31/2011. Poured from a 750 mL bottle into a pint glass. This pours out jet black viscous liquid. There is almost no head to speak of. Dark chocolate, vanilla, espresso, a dark blend of smoothly roasted malts, and chocolate malt are all present. I really enjoyed trying this in the same sitting as the Marshal Zhukov’s. The flavors in each beer are so smooth and complex, it is no wonder that Cigar City has a great reputation. Dark chocolate blends with dark roasted malt and a bit of espresso to start the sip. More chocolate continuously comes through as the sip progresses, with a darker and more bitter roasted malt to accompany it. A touch of chile and heat come through right at the end. The aftertaste is somewhat bitter and chocolaty. Absolutely velvety smooth, with great depth of flavor. The body is extremely full, with lots of creamy carbonation. Lightly sticky sweet, but not overly so. This is pretty awesome, it definitely lived up to my expectations. Since we were drinking the 2010, the flavors and aromas had really blended together nicely. This created a very smooth transition between the different aspects of the flavor, but it also made some of them difficult to isolate or taste. I only got a very mild heat from the chiles, and I could not get any hint of cinnamon. Definitely looking forward to this year’s release.

Pours a dark brown with a diminishing head. Dry and fruity. Aromas of dried dates and prunes. Hints of metals and chalk. Also hints of tobacco. Full bodied

2011 bottle pours a dark black color that stains the glass, aromas of chocolate, roasted malt, coffee, cinnamon, pepper, spices, and a touch of vanilla. Flavor is the same as the nose, there the chocolate balances out the spice. Glad I have a few more bottles of these.

Scopey (13557) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 20, 2012
2011 bottle at home. It pours jet black, with a thin dark tan head, which quickly dissipates. The nose is soy sauce, chocolate, a hint of chilli pepper, paprika, roasted malt, coffee, toffee and meat. The taste is chocolate, coffee, roasted malt, salted caramel, soy sauce, toffee, tanginess, tar and burnt tire, with a dry-roasted finish. Full body, low/fine carbonation and dense, sticky mouth-feel. Not quite as sweet as expected. Alcohol is pretty well hidden, but the dense nature makes it pretty tough going. It is good, but for me anyway doesn’t belong anywhere near the top 50!
