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.

neongolden (1385) - 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.

Aroma chocolate, coconut, orange peel, cinnamon, pepper, cacao, taste follows the aroma, very creamy, thick, not too sweet, aftertaste is long lasting, pleasant, bitter chocolate, and cinnamon dominating, spiciness is more prominent than in other similar beer, ( bomb, etc)

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 (20) - 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.

2016 Vintage thanks to drowland - Huge thanks, man! I freely admit that I am susceptible to hype, but I don’t think that’s the case here. Dense black, with a thin ring of foam. I’m not going to do a laundry list of flavors, just gonna say that everything meld beautifully and the whole is more than the sum of it’s parts. Really nice.

Batavi (379) - Waalwijk, NETHERLANDS - FEB 7, 2017
Geproefd op Borefts 2016, het eerste bier van het festival, en een waar ik lang naar uit heb gekeken. Het werd uitgeschonken in het festival proefglaasje uit een wijn decanteerder, slechts een half glaasje vol, wat natuurlijk het exclusieve imago verhoogd. Dikke olieachtige body, met weinig schuim, een kleine lichtbruine schuimkraag die snel wegtrekt. Aroma’s van chocolade, kaneel, koekjes, vanille, kokos, specerijen, sojasaus, donker fruit. Het smaakpallet is zeer complex en met een vol en olieachtig mondgevoel. Tonen van pure chocolade, zachte koffie, kokos, kaneel, vanille en een subtiele peper notitie, een geweldig complex bier. Zachte carbonatie, en een lange afdronk van kokos en lichte kruidige tonen. Prachtig bier om het geweldige Borefts festival 2016 mee te beginnen! Toch werden de torenhoge verwachtingen niet geheel ingelost, er waren 2 Imperial Stouts op dit festival die ik proefde die beter waren (deze waren wel BA overigens) Toch ben ik hard op zoek naar een fles van Cigar City Hunahpu’s Imperial Stout voor een meer uitgebreidere beoordeling in aroma en smaak notities. Cigar City is echt een zeer goede brouwerij uit de USA in meerdere stijlen.

750ml bottle @ Alex’s. Pours a thick black light absorbing colour oil with a small brown head. Nose is sweet bourbon, cinnamon, chocolate. Flavour is chocolate, dark fruit, some chilies. It’s a weird mix.

750ml bottle (thx, Jonatahan G.!) at Alex’s. Bottled on 2016-03-12. Pours an almost black with a dark beige head. Aroma is cinnamon, some coffee and roasted malt, slight sourness. Taste is sweet, slightly sour, spicy hot with cinnamon notes. Thick stuff, but too much of cinnamon for me.
