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.

DrHomolka (761) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 3, 2010
750ml bottle from Daknole. Pours EXTREMELY black, like the blackest I’ve ever seen with a very dark brown head. Aroma is rich chocolate covered cherries, reminds me of Dark Lord a little in that way. Graham cracker and olive juice. The peppers must be adding the olive component. Flavor is extremely chocolatey. Thick mouthfeel with roasty, dark dark chocolate flavor. I burped and it was just chocolate roastiness. The roastiness is akin to Expedition. The chocolate and roast might actually be too much for one beer making this beer a little less smooth. I’m kind of over Imperial Stouts at this point but this is a fine and unique example.

BlazerT (988) - Sosnowiec, POLAND - APR 26, 2017
Barwa czarna, nieprzejrzysta. Piana gęsta, drobnopęcherzykowa, długoutrzymująca się. Aromat uderza cynamonem i wanilią - niezbyt intensywnie, ale jedank. Przede wszystkim prym wiodą intensywne słody palone, kakao, czekolada, czarna świeżo prażona kawa, trochę toffi, melasa. Piwo jest syropowate, gęste i ulepkowate. Trochę brązowego cukru. Nuty cynamonowe obecne są od początku - niezbyt intensywne, zrównoważone, raczej pozostają w tle, ale konsekwentnie są obecne do końca. Smak słodki, takie cynamonowe ciasteczko w płynie, momentami z elementami takiego organicznego miodu. Pod koniec wchodzi ostra papryczka, nie wiem sam czy urozmaica czy zaburza całokształt. Na pewno nie jest irytująca. Na pewno jest też pewnym urozmaiceniem i przełamuje tą słodycz piwa. Pijalność na imponująco i niebezpiecznie wysokim poziomie. Piwo doskonale zrównoważone. Coż można rzec na koniec - podstawa słodowa genialna, przyprawy wnoszą fajne ciasteczkowate nuty, przełamane nieco ostrą papryczką, która dla niektórych może być niepotrzebna, a dla innych zbawienna.

2010 vintage shared by alexsdad06 pour opaque black with orangish tan head. Nose syrupy, molasses, prune, light chocolate. Taste berry, red fruit, light chocolate, then just a hint of chili. Late cinnamon. Super thick mouth feel. Will likely re rate with newer vintage.

Mep3222 (1448) - East Greenbush, New York, USA - APR 21, 2017
Aroma of chilies, roasted malt, vanilla, cocoa. Taste is a super smooth, super balanced full bodied stout with some slight heat at the end. Slight sweet malty. Super balanced complex and flavorful and the heat at the end goes great with it. Delicious.

Brightnessinaarhus (27) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - MAR 31, 2017
Pours a beautiful one finger head, aromas of cinnamon cereal, bacon and brownie. Taste is very intense but balanced. Extremely velvety body and a long lasting cinnamon finish

neongolden (1450) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 21, 2017
(Tap sample @ CBC 2016 Green Session) Pours black with a pale brown head. Big nose of dark chocolate fudge, cinnamon, vanilla, spice, tobacco, toasted nuts, molasses, solid roast. Flavour of rich dark chocolate, cinnamon, vanilla, chili, nut butter, spice box, moderately heavy roast grain, cacao nibs, pepper heat building up to a moderate level in the finish, augmented by roast to dry out a somewhat sweet start. Quite full, oily, with soft carbonation and fairly subtle alcohol. Really nice stuff, not shy with the spices but achieves good balance and big concentration of flavours. Have to try this one again.

2013 Huna thanks to Rick. Aroma is tons of chocolate with moderate roast and mild vanilla. Flavor is so so smooth and blended. With chocolate and booze.

jbethea (29) - Summerfield, Florida, USA - FEB 25, 2017
Personally, still the best beer I have tried. It sort of trancends the word beer altogether and gives way to a culinary experience. You have to chew on this beer and appreciate the amazing balance of sweet, smokey,chocolate with nice subtle spice tones on the end. Spice , heat, sweet all come together into something that my words do not do justice. Better than the sum of its parts. A masterpiece worthy of praise. I would love to try something better- I’ve tried nothing close. Complexity incarnate.
