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.

UPDATED: MAR 9, 2013 Date: March 24, 2012 Mode: Bottle Source: DalzAle tasting Description: Opaque black pour with nice brown head and lacing. This was smooth, chewy, chocolate and fudge. Like a liquefied fudge brownie, just delicious. Thanks Caleb for sharing! Re-rate on November 16, 2012 bottle shared by Brandon. This had way more spice than I remember. Moved down taste, palate and overall by one each.

Bottle shared by CLevar - thanks Caleb! Super thick, tan head, deep dark black. Smell is a touch sweet, toffee, chocolate. Coats your mouth in rich, chocolate goodness! Fantastic. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cybercat (5741) - Georgia, USA - MAR 24, 2012
Pours an opaque sable with a thick, fine-bubbled cinnamony tan head. Strong, smoky, chocolaty aroma has hints of cinnamon and vanilla. Mouth-filling roast coffee flavor has tones of caramel and chocolate plus hints of hot pepper and licorice. Firm, almost syrupy, smooth texture is quite fizzy.

UPDATED: JUL 15, 2012 750 ml bottle courtesy of and shared with Marsiblursi. Many thanks! 2010 vintage. Pours oily black with a small dark chocolate brown head that quickly dissipates while leaving some trace on the glass. Smell is sweet with roasted malts, wood, tobacco, vanilla, milk chocolate, prunes, cinnamon, brown sugar, alcohol, soy and hints of smoke, flower nectar and red chili. Taste is sweet, bitter and salty with heavily roasted malts, coffee, vanilla, very ripe grapes, cinnamon, chocolate, dark bread, golden syrup and hints of liquorice fudge, soy, smoke and chili powder. Mouthfeel is oily, very silky, tiny sticky sweet and full bodied. Finish is tiny sweet, bitter and tiny tart with heavily roasted malts, coffee, bitter chocolate, wood, cinnamon and smoke. Quite nice and with incredibly clear notes of the stuff they’ve put in it.

Re-rate @ tkrjukoffs CCB Day July 7 2012. Intense dark chocolate and cinnamon smell. Intense dark chocolate taste. Amazing! Much better than the last vintage I tried.

Pour a dark, thick black like used motor oil. It has a slight orange tinge to the head (what little there is). Strong aroma of dark cocoa, ancho, and espresso. It kinda has a consistency of chocolate liqueur. Great flavors: more espresso and dark cocoa followed by more chocolate liquer and a faint spicy aftertaste on the palate. Overall, I’m quite impressed! Thanks to ericandersnavy for the hookup!

22/III/2012 75cl bottle from De Hopduvel (Gent) @ Klaas’ place - BB: n/a (2012-260) Thanks to Klaas for sharing the bottle!

Dark brown to black beer, no head. Aroma: lots of chocolate, dark caramel, bourbon, vanilla, red wine, bit dusty, coffee. MF: soft carbon, full body. Taste: chocolate, raisins, mocha, caramel, sweet syrup, alcohol, bit of chili pepper. Aftertaste: coffee, some bourbon, vanilla, bit of hops, ashes. Damn, good stuff!

750ml bottle via trade with omegax - HUGE thanks, Jordan! Pitch black brew with tons of tan head. Big time roasted and chocolate aromas with some earthy chiles, vanilla, and spices. Lots of cinnamon up front balanced by flavors of fudge and vanilla with a near perfect amount of heat from the chilis on the back end. I love it when beers live up to their hype!

Bought a case at Hunahpu Day.. Love that chili/chocolate combo. Comparing this to the Dark Lord, I would give it the leg up(unless you are aging). Dark lord was too syrupy and sweet and almost too overpowering with vanilla. Both are great stouts, but for my tongue, Hunahpu wins.

BigSound (196) - New York, USA - MAR 17, 2012
Pours thick and black with an equally thick tan head that lasts a good minute before receding to a colar that leaves some killer lacing. The aroma is great, chocolate, vanilla, coffee, and cinnamon. I taste coffee, choclate, cinnamon, vanilla, with heat from the chillies sneaking in at the end. Big syrupy mouth feel, very full body, low carbonation. Yum!
