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 on the second Saturday in March. We will continue to do so until the end of the cycle.

2014 bottle, has been standing in my "cellar" for some years. Pours pitch black, like motoroil, with a dark brown head that doesn't last long. Aroma's of vegetal chili, spices (cinnamon certainly, light vanilla), chocolate. Flavour is (above) moderate sweet with some roasty bitterness. Above medium bodied. Chili heat is very mild. Alcohol well hidden. Long finish, with spices and light roasty bitterness.

Bottle shared with ma fellas vestergaard and rasmusott. Pours pitch black with a thick, creamy mocha dark head. Aromas of chocolate, slight roast, cinnamon, vanilla, caramel fudge. Taste is dark chocolate, vanilla, fudge, pepper, chili sweetness, sweet dark fruits, slight sweet licorice, cinnamon, good amount of roasted malts. Dang, this is good.
