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.

Pours pitch black with a medium dark mocha head...beautiful color and decent lacing. Aroma is milky with mild dark fruit and slightly sweet dark chocolate...very faint vanilla and cinnamon. Flavor is very chocolatey!...hint of dark fruit and vanilla...very faint cinnamon and pepper. Mouthfeel is full and creamy with a sweet cocoa finish that has a nice subtle burn from the chiles.

What a ridiculously delicious beer. Aroma is dark chocolate, dark fruits, coffee. The palate is thick creamy and just the right amount of carbonation. The taste of this beer is nothing short of spectacular. Reminds me of toasted coconut dipped in chocolate. Notes of cinnamon and very light chilis with a nice dose of chocolate. vanilla, and coffee. First class beer.

Reviewed way back in 2009 from a bottle that was hand bottled from a growler. This was before the beer was released in bottles. I popped the cap off and was greeted by a nice pffft. I was worried that when I opened this beer that to much air would of gotten to it and ruined the experience. No sir it was perfect. The beer poured thick and black. A huge creamy tan head poured. This beer poured perfect. The smell on this beer is fantastic. Deep chocolate malt, vanilla, smokiness, and spice. Yup spice. A nice amount of cinnamon and chili pepper. It hits the nostrils but doesn’t overwhelm. Not to much of a burn. Definitely a unique aroma that you don’t usually get from a stout. The taste on this beer is just amazing. So much going on. Really complex. The taste happens in waves. Up front is the chocolate and vanilla. It’s sweet and slightly bitter. Next up is the smokiness and roasted malt. Then the spices hit. They just sit on your tongue. When I first sipped this brew the spices weren’t to noticeable. But as you take sip after sip the hotness starts to sit there. Not overwhelming though like some other beers I’ve had. Finally there is a bit of a bitter ending from the hops.

UPDATED: DEC 27, 2014 Bottle @ home, courtesy of thebeersommelier. Thanks! 2010 bottle. Initially has a one finger, dark brown head but that quickly dissipates and also has a pitch black appearance. Rich anise, cocoa, mild vanilla, thick chocolate malty aroma. Thick, somewhat syrupy mouth feel. Initially, there’s a very rich cocoa, mild vanilla, woody, dark chocolate malty flavor that then has more of the creaminess and peppers on the finish. There’s a thick coating on my tongue after drinking this. Rich cocoa, light anise, mild vanilla aftertaste. This sucker is thicker is thicker than almost any other beer I’ve ever had. Not sure if the peppers faded or if they’re naturally not too pervasive, but they are a nice addition to the finish. Tasty beer for sure. (4.1)

Update: Awesome (4.6)

750 mL bottle shared at the January 2012 Santa Cruz tasting at Sante Adairius. Not sure of the year but this is from the first bottling of the beer. Deep black pour with that signature Cigar City imperial stout head. Just a ridiculous shade of neon brown. Boozy roasty aroma, robust chocolate, fresh coffee, light iodine. Massive dark chocolate flavor, light smokiness, cocoa, and a mild vanilla bean note. The chilies are pretty subdued at this point but they still impart a bit of flavor without any heat. Viscous heavy bitter mouthfeel, not boozy. Nice glass-staining legs. Killer beer.

2011 bottle opened Dec 29 for the birth if my first nephew. The aging time was perfect (10 months) poured into a CCB snifter, jet black with a milk chocolate head, the nose gave off the vanilla, coffee, and cinnamon. The flavors set off the same with some smoke and then of course the chili lends a slight tingle at the end. This beer is extremely complex yet balanced as well.
