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 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.

UPDATED: SEP 24, 2017 Draft at Mash, Barcelona. Aroma is chocolate, cinnamon, some vanilla. Taste is sweet, deep, texture is oily and creamy, a lot of cinnamon again, cocoa. The peppers scratch your throat in a nice way. I really want to try the barrel-aged version now.

@ Brewskival 17-8-26: Veldig bra öl men stora mörka toner som först och främst bär pregl av krydda (kanel). Lång fyllig och fin eftesmak. Bra

Brewskival, Fredag. Tjock, kolsvart krämig vätska med mörkt, krämigt brunt skum. Massor av fudge, kokos, choklad, riven mandel och mandelmassa. Stor, fyllig kropp. Bra med sötma och bra chilihetta utan att det tar över. Massor av kokos här med, lite fruktiga toner från chilin, vanilj, choklad och agavesirap. Lite "tropisk" feeling. Är egentligen inte särskilt förtjust varken i kokos eller chili i öl, men svårt att förneka att detta är väldigt välgjort, och maffigt!
