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.

CBS vertical tasting @ Tim's. Thank you for sharing Jon! Dark brown pour some brown foam on top. Aroma has cocoa and chocolate, chocolate pudding, somewhat milky, cacao nibs. Tastes dry chocolaty, roast, hops and some chilli heat coming out in the finish. Very rich, kind of like a hoppy chocolate cake, I like that it's not overly sweet and that chilli heat is in the finish. Pretty darn good.

snowcrash000 (150) - Cologne, GERMANY - JAN 22, 2018
Pours a thick, oily pitch black coloration with a small, creamy head. Smell is somewwhat subdued, pretty underwheming compared to the taste. Cinnamon is most noticeable, with a sort of odd earthy, musty aroma being pretty dominant as well. Perhaps a hint of coconut there. Taste is lots of chocolate and vanilla noticeable at first, with a decent bit of cinnamon and chili coming through as well. The chili really grows as you drink and the beer warms. Quite noticeable in the aftertaste in a really pleasant way. Hardly any boozyness there at all. Mouthfeel really is fantastic, very thick, sticky, almost oily and very smooth. This is really nice for a non-BA stout, but I have to say that I would still prefer SN Narwhal or Kernel's Imperial Brown Stout. I do like chili, but all in all this does not seem perfectly balanced and frankly overrated.

Butelka. Barwa smoliście czarna z beżowa niewysoka piana. Aromat cacao, kawy, czekolady, pumpernikiel. Papryczki delikatnie dają o sobie znać. Po ogrzaniu coraz więcej papryczek. Gesta tekstura, oleista. Długie posmaki. W aftertast czuć moc papryczek.

2016. Masa bardzo fajnych belgijskich pralin, kakao, delikatne papryczki, które są w tle i sprawiają, że piwo jest przyjemne. Nie jest super słodkie, ale bardzo przyjemnie. Owoce w czekoladzie, z likierem jakimś nawet.

tomekk1978 (1571) - Z±bki, POLAND - JAN 7, 2018
UPDATED: JAN 8, 2018 W aromacie owoce w czekoladzie, papryczki, kakao, cynamon. Barwa świetna, piana mogłaby być bardziej trwała, ale nie jest źle. W smaku umiarkowana słodycz, czekolada, karmel, alko i wyraźne papryczki na finiszu.

UPDATED: DEC 14, 2017 1000!! Congrats to me. I'm really torn on this one. Very heavy salt and caramel which aren't my most favorite profiles. But the aroma is super rich. Pours a black oil - perfect. Medium balanced body. Bit of a tartness. Heavy chocolate flavor with salt coming through. Very unique.
