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.

bookman10 (1093) - Osseo, Minnesota, USA - DEC 8, 2012
Pours a dark, oily black, with a head that almost appeared to be purple, it was so dark (at first) while setting up. Very pronounced, boozy aroma, with dark fruit, coffee, chocolate, etc. Flavors are very complex, including the chocolate and coffee, there is some plum or raisin in there, too. I didn’t taste the peppers at first, but three or four sips in and they get pretty apparent. Thick and oily mouthfeel. Very smooth finish. Worth seeking out to give it a try once in your life.

Biroholik (1295) - Sosnowiec, Poland, POLAND - MAY 14, 2017
Tap @ Mikkeller Beer Celebration Copenhagen 2017 W ostatnim czasie było to najbardziej poszukiwane przeze mnie piwo Spodziewałem się konkretnego pier...cia, a wyszło tylko OK. W aromacie ogrom nut cynamonowych, leciutka wanilia, kawa, delikatna czekolada. W smaku ponownie na pierwszym planie cynamon, mało wyraźna czekolada, chilli stonowane, nie gryzie w przełyku. Stawia tylko kropeczkę nad "i". Alkohol trudny do określenia, nie jest wcale łagodny, ale to może być przez chilli. Tylko umiarkowane ciało. Nie jest to wcale żaden super gęścioch. Dobry RIS, ale tylko i wyłącznie dobry taki na -4. Legenda upadła? Spróbuje jeszcze na spokojnie butelkę to porównam ocenę.

Sample at MBCC 2017. Dark malty and spicy smell, I got cinnamon but could have been chili or something else. Similar taste with some chili. Slight rough mouthfeel.

Thisis12ptfont (1166) - Los Angeles, CA, California, USA - MAY 2, 2017
Aromas of chilles, pepper. vanilla, cinnamon, fudge, chocolate, star anise, cocoa powder, coffee, dark malts, black licorice, dark cacao, aged malts, chocolate syrup and toffee. Pours black with a half finger brown head. Taste brings chocolate, chille, roasted coffee, star anise, cinnamon, vanilla, roasted malts, chocolate syrup, slick black malts, green peppers, spices and black licorice upfront. Mid palate layers into multiple chocolate flavors, coffee grounds, toffee, lime juice, slight oak and alcohol sugars. Finishes semi sweet with cloves, cocoa nibs and more chilles. Moderately boozy yet, not overbearing in any way. Overall, well worth seeking out. Not like any beer I’ve ever had before. A+ rating.

jc1762 (1304) - Washington DC, USA - APR 29, 2017
Bottle into a snifter showing motor oil pitch black with quickly dissipating coffee brown latte. The nose shows a lot of cinnamon and baking spices akin to apple pie. The palate is moderately carbonated and big, thick and oily. Lightly cinnamon spiced with flavors of cinnamon, baker’s chocolate, and a big espresso bitterness.

BlazerT (1049) - 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.
