4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: JUN 14, 2010 Tap at Capone’s. Very dark brown in color with a medium head. Taste of rich, creamy chocolate and espresso. A good amount of little licorice and a touch of vanilla. Sweet finish.
Aromat: cynamon, przyjemne nuty utlenienia - suszone owoce, czekoladka.
Smak: cynamon, powtórka z aromatu, ostre papryczki w posmaku, dość intensywne ale przyjemne. Muggus69 (2723) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - NOV 7, 2017
(unsure of vintage) 750mL bottle at "Tony's Taphouse"
Pour is thick, sump oil, holds densest of creamy dark beige heads.
Spectacular aroma - dark chocolate, cocoa, Xmas spices, immense dark sugars & dried fruits.
Lovely creaminess to the texture, carbonation very much on the low side, great length, sticky.
Wow - like a party in my mouth, and everyones coated in chocolate - darkest of chocolate fudge & brownies leading into spices & dark dried fruits. Booze eventually catches up but so welcoming and lovely.
Had this alongside the Bourbon County coffee - very different beast, think I preferred this just a tiny bit more. heman (1199) - Tychy, POLAND - NOV 6, 2017
Aromat intensywny zdominowany przyprawami, na pierwszym planie papryka suszona, zaraz za nią cynamon i tło z gorzkiej czekolady. W tle delikatny sos sojowy. W smaku gęste, słodkie, dużo gorzkiej czekolady i kakao, nuty palone raczej schowane. Szybko pojawia się delikatnie rozgrzewanie i posmak papryczek. gr_pa (835) - siemianowice, POLAND - NOV 5, 2017
Black, small brown head. Aroma: coffee, marmelade, vanilla, bit of cinnamon, paprica. Full body, sweet. Coffee, malt, fruits, caramel. Excellent hidden alco. Adamsville (391) - Quebec, CANADA - OCT 22, 2017
Apparence : Noire, visqueuse, léger col brun très foncé, voire écarlate, rétention faible, carbonatation faible.

Nez : Chocolat pimenté, torréfaction, notes de fumée. Intense.
Goût : Chocolat, épicée, légère amertume, légère acidité torréfiée, cannelle en rétro-olfaction, mais plutôt subtile. Moyennement sucrée, finale presque sèche.
Sensation : Chaleureuse, léger piquant, bonne longueur, corps assez dense, légère astringence (intéressante) qui languit.
Bref : Chocolat noir, du piment, un sucre résiduel contrôlé, une torréfaction bien présente, un corps qui supporte bien le tout, un alcool qui ne se pointe pas en bouche; je ne sortirai pas des sentiers battus en stipulant que cette bière est une réussite.
Another one of the fabled, great imperial stouts that have spun their own mythology and everyone has to try at least once, or their beer nerd friends will think less of them. So, being a beer nerd with a fragile ego and some overly judgy friends, it was high time I tried this.joet (2662) - Wilsonville, Oregon, USA - OCT 19, 2017
Not every beer in this category lives to the hype, but this certainly does. It gets every component just right. Even without the adjuncts, this would be a near-perfect stout. It's thick and full (although it holds back just enough not to be syrupy), and the flavors are a brilliant combination of chocolate, coffee, and a little bit of toasted/roasted grain. And then, on top of all of that, the adjuncts bring a smooth bit of vanilla, and some sweet and spicy heat, all of which compliments the base beer. Believe the hype!
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. blankboy (7808) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 19, 2017
UPDATED: OCT 19, 2017 [Draught at 'Beaus Oktoberfest 2017', Sep. 23] Pours black, oily looking, with an average size small frothy long-lasting light-brown head. Lovely aroma of roasted malt, chocolate, coffee, some lactose, dark fruit, light hops, vanilla and more -- complex and lots there. Flavour: Oh wow! It's everything the aroma is along with hints of ginger and other spices that I did not expect to be there -- simply fantastic! Medium bodied. This definitely lives up to it's reputation and does not disappoint.
I can't believe I've never had this before! italianjohn (3254) - Penndel, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 7, 2017
Black pour with a nice layer of brown head ..... Aroma is of cinnamon, cocoa, roasted malts, and silky chocolate, smells like your about to drink a mole stout .... Tastes of cocoa, sweet chocolate, vanilla, and cinnamon, with a nice earthy very light spicy kick .... the body is full, very balanced, smooth .. mouthfeel is creamy, slick and oily .... the abv is hidden well and the flavors are intense ..... solid and highly drinkable .... finish has some bitterness with a great balance of cinnamon and cocoa The_Osprey (9140) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 6, 2017
September 2017 - Keg at Beavertown Extravaganza. As 'Cigar City Hunahpu's Imperial Stout'. Opaque black with a foamy brown head. Aroma is cinnamon-forward with some chocolate truffle, cinnamon-infused chocolate. Body is smooth with soft carbonation. Taste is again chocolate and cinnamon, earthy, spicy with some light booze showing up in the finish. Wasn't overly impressed with this straight from the keg, but it got a lot better as I hand-warmed it. (8-4-8-3-16=3.9)
