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 Hunahpuís 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 Hunahpuís 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.

callmemickey (4344) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 10, 2010
UPDATED: MAR 1, 2013 A: Deep black with only the slightest hints of light poking through the edges. Not too impressive of a head... tiny khaki cap, with modest retention. Dissolves to a tight ring around the edges. An occasional wisp of lacing left on the glass. S: Roasted malt, bitter chocolate and a bit of vanilla. Nothing unusual and certainly not a fair indication of the flavor just around the bend. T: Bam... this was one of the most unexpected flavor profiles based on the nose... large blasts of bitter dark chocolate, cacao, roasted malts, and vanilla... supplemented with an earthy smoked-woodyness... a little bit of cola... and of course the spicy chilies! Reminded me of Black Tuesday in the sheer monstrosity and complexity of the flavor layering. M: Heavy... dense... with some lively carbonation to balance out... nice prolonged finish O: I really was blown away by the flavors here... I havenít had much success with CCB beers in the past and was sure that this beer was benefiting from some hype... well, I was pleasantly treated to a delicious beverage... my hats off to CCB for the stones to brew this beast.

From bottle (2016), thanks Enn! Didnít take notes, and even if I would have, Iíd not have known where to start. This was fckn incredible. The most in-your-face Impies Iíve had. The chili burn coating the massive chocolate and vanilla sweetness is just too good. Would be my no 1 beer if I hadnít been so careless with points early in my Ratebeer career.

2015 bottle enjoyed during college football. Pours jet black and opaque. Nose is dark chocolate, vanilla and cinnamon. Taste follows with a silky mouth feel that coats and seems to last forever! One of my favorite stouts!

2014 bottle. Holy hell worth the wait. Pours silky deep black with chocolate head. Great bitter chocolate, vanilla. Coats your entire mouth. Finish seems to linger for ever. Worth the wait to try it.

Donkerzwart bier met mokkakleurige schuimkraag. Dik, stroperig bier met aroma en smaken van koffie, (gebrande) noten, roast. Licht gebrande smaak met een overheerlijke vanille afdronk. Zťťr goed in balans. Outstanding !! Een smaakbom.

At BBF, very dark opaque brown color, dominant aroma of chocolate and raisins with hints of black pepper and nutmeg, intense chocolate flavor light mellow bitterness, not too heavy. Exquisite.,
