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.

Bottle. Pours a pitch black color with a really dark brown head. The aroma is of vanilla, fudge, chocolate, cocoa, gingerbread, coffee, roasted malt, dark fruits, molasses and lots of nice deserty aromas. Flavors is as amazing as the aroma, it really reminds me of gingerbread, with honey and ginger and cinnamon spice notes, vanilla, dark and sweet chocolate notes, cocoa, coffee, vanilla, fudge, dark fruits and molasses, with a hint of the chili that evolves the more you sip in it. The body is full with a nice sticky and creamy mouth feel. Overall an amazing and different Imperial Stout, I really want to try this BA!

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- Iíve tried nothing close. Complexity incarnate.

Suttree (6235) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 8, 2017
2016 Vintage thanks to drowland - Huge thanks, man! I freely admit that I am susceptible to hype, but I donít think thatís the case here. Dense black, with a thin ring of foam. Iím 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 itís parts. Really nice.

Batavi (376) - 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. Aromaís 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 Hunahpuís 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 @ Alexís. 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. Itís a weird mix.

750ml bottle (thx, Jonatahan G.!) at Alexís. 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.

Chalumeaux (1330) - Middleton, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 14, 2017
Poured from bottle thanks Dchmela dated 3/8/14 rate 1200. Black oil pour with a thin tan head and nice lacing. Aromas of bourbon cinnamon roasted malt chocolate vanilla and chilies. Taste is luscious well balanced notes of chocolate dark fruit chilies that linger into the finish but donít overpower. This was well worth the wait. Thanks Dave.

UPDATED: DEC 24, 2016 Bottle shared by Alex thx my man. Drank with the boys A: Bourbon, alcohol, figs, cinnamon rolls, roasty, licorice, raisins. App: pitch black sparing beige head. T/p: full body with moderate long bitter finish. Soft carbonation. Hotness from the alcohol. O: Impressive how the spiciness come through. I enjoy the hotness on this. Glad I share it since itís a beast. I really dig that kinda cinnamon rolls aroma you get. A really nice winter warmer.

Stoned99 (1429) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 23, 2016
750ml March í16 bottle shared with Ben, Seb and Jo. Aroma: big licorice, cinnamon and other spices. App: dark brown, sparing brown head, no lacing. Taste and palate: full body, smooth, lots of spices in mouth too but itís much more pleasant than in aroma, light bitter finish. Overall: good but not great. Donít think it deserves to be rated that high. But Iím not a big spice fan. On the other hand the texture is prefect.

anstei (1699) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - DEC 17, 2016
Bottle, courtesy through SinH4 and Jdizzle1, many many thanks! Pours black with a dark brown foam. Aroma is pure cocoa and hot chocolate. Body is heavy, boozy, but with the hot chocolate there is coconut and coffee. Super sweet and also boozy, but it works so, so well. Palate drowns in flavours. Oh boy, what a great, great beer. Worth all the praise!
