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.

2011 Bottle to glass, multiple 2-4oz pours. Thick, black pour. With a swirl, the viscous liquid coats the glass staining it amber for more than a moment. Aroma is chocolate, toasted wood, and vanilla. Taste is similar but even bolder plus the subtle addition of chile spice toward the end. Truly great and I can’t wait to try the Apple Brandy version. (from notes)

Black pour with a nice layer of brown head ..... Aroma is of cinnamon, cocoa, roasted malts, and silky chocolate, smells like your about to drink a mole stout .... Tastes of cocoa, sweet chocolate, vanilla, and cinnamon, with a nice earthy very light spicy kick .... the body is full, very balanced, smooth .. mouthfeel is creamy, slick and oily .... the abv is hidden well and the flavors are intense ..... solid and highly drinkable .... finish has some bitterness with a great balance of cinnamon and cocoa

The_Osprey (8682) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 6, 2017
September 2017 - Keg at Beavertown Extravaganza. As 'Cigar City Hunahpu's Imperial Stout'. Opaque black with a foamy brown head. Aroma is cinnamon-forward with some chocolate truffle, cinnamon-infused chocolate. Body is smooth with soft carbonation. Taste is again chocolate and cinnamon, earthy, spicy with some light booze showing up in the finish. Wasn't overly impressed with this straight from the keg, but it got a lot better as I hand-warmed it. (8-4-8-3-16=3.9)

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!
