Reviewing the infamous Hunahpu's Imperial Stout from Cigar City Brewing. Scott's eagle eye saw this beer was on tap within 10 minutes after arriving within the gates of Dark Lord Day gates. We threw down our Tocobaga Red and Blueberry Muffin Brown and dashed for the line just before everyone else did. It was totally worth it.
Score: 95

10 oz tap pour served in a plastic cup and enjoyed at Dark Lord Day (04/28/12) around 10:30 AM. Review is from iPhone notes.

Appearance: The beer is a very deep brown, almost black color. There's some dark chocolaty brown highlights atop the glass when held up to light. Given the "glassware" this beer is served it, it was hard to determine lacing or retention. Basically, the beer looked like motor oil. I plan to crack a bottle of this in the future and will have to revise the score if the appearance is anything more impressive when served in proper glassware out of a bottle and not at a festival. At Dark Lord Day, perhaps because of early morning stout fatigue, this just looked like a pretty good stout (as opposed to something visually impressive). 4/5

Smell: Chocolate and cocoa, cherry, cinnamon, chili peppers and coffee. A little vanilla bean and tobacco. Hint of dark fruit. Nice aromatic medley of spice here. 4.25/5

Taste: Less heat on the tongue than Mexican Cake, but there is still plenty of spice and flavor. Chilli pepper, milk chocolate and a little coffee. Only light heat prickle on the midpalate and back of tongue. Muted vanilla. Plenty of cinnamon throughout. Sweet fig upfront. Layering chilli heat prickliness on the palate. 4.5/5

Mouthfeel: Full bodied, low carbonation. Slightly sweet and creamy mouthfeel. 4.5/5

Overall: Absolutely outstanding imperial stout to have the pleasure to sip and enjoy in line for the Three Floyds' Brewpub. There is a real nice spice and chocolate flavor, and I can see why this beer is so sought after. Hunahpu is much better than Mexican Cake. We also got a glass of the Apple Brandy Zhukov right after the Hunahpu kicked, and that beer absolutely blows this one out of the water.

Recommendation: Seek this beer out unless you are chilli flavor averse. There is less heat than there was with Mexican Cake, but more flavor, synergy and balance.

Pairings: Gingerbread cookies

Cost: $25 for a 750 ml bottle or $10 for a 10 oz pour at Dark Lord Day.

Had this on tap at Hunahpu day at Cigar City.

Thick, viscous, dense black beer with reddish brown head. Smell is full of coffee, chocolate, and vanilla. The taste is bittersweet with loads of chocolate and espresso, followed by a pleasant chili pepper kick. As Hunahpu warms up it tastes sweeter and the vanilla flavors come through better. The chili spice feels palate cleansing and sets up the next sip. Mouthfeel is thick and viscous with low carbonation.

Astounding Impy Stout.

On tap at Hunahpu 2011, pours dark, smoky, spicy aroma. Sweet, Vanilla and strong. I’m not huge on the chili spice, but the chocolate really fellows the whole experience out. Extremely balanced and really brings the chili to the forefront as it warms. Well worth the hype. I am lucky to have this wonderful brewer so close to home, this is a masterpiece.

appearance - black on black crime. mocha head that dissipates slowly to some lacing off very controlled pour.

smell - chocolate brownies, vanilla, toffee... didnt get any peppers, but im happy with that, cause it was incredible.

taste - chocolate brownies that are out of this world good. everything else was minor... vanilla, earth, caramel and heat.

mouthfeel - thick and good, carbonation is amazing for how heavy it is. coats the mouth wonderfully

lives up to its rep

Ah, Hunaphu's. After hating the MZ I got, I was dreading this, but I can say easily that this one is much better.

A- Motor oil black and a thin but heavy brownie-batter head. Sticks to the side of the glass. This stuff is thick.

S- Deep, impenatrable darkness. Intense dark roast coffee and bitter chocolate. A very nice nose.

T- Very sweet- reminds me a little of Dark Lord and of course of MZ. However, the chili spice comes out on the finish and does a pretty good job cutting through the stout. I like it. A little goes a long way, but I like the mild heat that builds. The cinnamon is nice on the tongue, makes it taste a bit like graham crackers.

M- Thick, syrupy, and too sweet. The chile is delightful though and brings this one along, saving it from being too much. Carbonation is too low for my tastes.

O- 2oz is all you need. Chile is nice- saves the beer from being the trainwreck that MZ is. I'd have this one again. Not worth trading an arm and a leg for, but the uniqueness makes this worth seeking out. YMMV.

had on tap at lazyboy saloon 9/24/11

Opal colored pour with a massive chocolate mousse brown head; absolutely gorgeous. Aroma is way better than the Zhukov we just tasted; the chili pepper, cocoa nib and cinnamon are all prevalent, adding to the base of roasted malt, coffee, and burnt wood. Flavor is otherworldy; has every awesome aspect of your typical imperial stout, but the pepper and cinnamon just add a whole other dimension. The spicy notes do override some of the roast and chocolate a bit, but it’s welcome, and those characteristics are still discernible, not entirely masked. The palate is viscous, thick, and full flavored throughout. Absolutely top notch.

Served on draft at Kickbacks into a 8oz Unibroue snifter/sampler glass. 6oz pour.

Blacker than your ex's heart is this beer. No light anywhere near this beast is getting through. Dark mocha head, similar to a chocolate mousse, only darker. Lacing is spotty. A finger of head on the pour. Even when just moving the beer in the glass, the sticky nature of this beer takes over, leaving its mark throughout. Viscous just isn't enough to describe this beer. At rest, this is a nice rim of mocha head sitting at the cusp where the beer meets the glass. Lovely.

Nose is dominated mostly by the chocolate base that is Zhukov. Having had this fresh, it has lost most of its profound nose. Notes of sweetness from the vanilla, and a mild chili presense. Much more of a "chocolate" beer nose than anythign else. Alcohol noted, though has to be sought after. It has lost much, so I am rated it higher knowing what it once was. Fresh is better in this regard.

The taste experience is something found in no other beer I've had. The chocolate base of Zhukov is found through out, accententuated by the cocoa nibs. Off of this base comes the flavors in order. Vanilla, then cinnamon and then a fine note of the chilis. All are well done, none dominated and still an imperial stout. So much more than a chocolate beer at this point. So, damn, amazing. It may lose a bit since it was kegged in terms of fresh flavors, but it has gained a balanced quality.

So bloody viscous. Sticky in the mouth. It requires plenty of time to enjoy. It is impossible to merely drink this one, as it something to be savored. Requires a good hour just to drink.

SO intense, so powerful, so unapologetic, and so brasen in the approach, yet well done. Hard to bring another "flavored" stout that has this much intensity yet it is so enjoyable to drink. Very, very, very well done.

Had on draft, 6oz pour. This was something I've been looking forward to. It was worth the wait. Very dark with a think foamy head. Nice coffee chocolate aroma. Drank with a very smooth medium body. You can definitely taste the cocoa and vanilla while the coffee took a back seat view. I would Def recommend this as one of cigar cities best.

On draft at CCB during the 2011 release.

Pitch black, literally just like motor oil. The head is a dark tan and it fades to a ring around the glass/ swirl in the middle. The nose is mainly of dark chocolate and espressso type coffee. Taste is big on roasted/burnt malts, coffee, and dark chocolate as expected. Mild chilli peppers and a vanilla flavor on the finish. Thick and full bodied. Carbonation fades toward the end. This is a huge beer to say least. Lots going on but it comes together nicely in my opinion. Worth searching.

Reviewed from notes. On tap at the brewery on the day of the release. 03/12/11

A: Black as night with a ridiculously dark one finger head. Not much lacing to speak of.

S: The cinnamon is in the forefront. Followed by notes of the vanilla, chiles and chocolate.

T: The cinnamon is the first thing that you notice here as well. Then notes of vanilla, chocolate and a faint hint of the chiles.

M: Thick, creamy and silky. One of the thickest Imperial Stouts that I've had.

O: A really fantastic Imperial Stout that I much prefer fresh as opposed to with some age on it. I was glad to be able to get to try it on tap.

Sampled initially at Tryst in Delray Beach, also have a few bottles that will be sampled in the future

From Notes:

A: Absolutely amazing pour. Ominous pitch black oil, huge deep brown head (almost purple), retention is surprisingly good given the ABV

S: Complex to say the least. Chocolate, fudge, vanilla, coffee, lactose, cinnamon, and dark fruit to name the main notes. Overall sweet smelling, but definitely has lots of depth

T: As I suspected, a sweet beer, and alcohol is pretty well hidden. Vanilla, fudge, chocolate, coffee, and cinnamon come the the front. I never really picked up on the peppers, but then again, there is so much going on.

MF/O: Thick and oily feel to it. Smooth and creamy despite the moderate carbonation.

Overall, a stout that should be grouped in with the best, but I never really got that "wow" factor that I was expecting. I still prefer the Abyss and KBS over Hunahpu's, but let's see what some cellaring does to this

Had this at at Hunahpu day 2011.

A: Black! Similar the other Zhukov's. Small, dark brown head, that fades rather quickly.

S: Notes of alcohol, with some coffee and chocolate. Wow was the first impression!

T: You get hit with the roasted malt, coffee and a hint of chocolate. Finishes with a hint of vanilla and a slight heat from the pepper.

M: Thick, heavy body. Good carbonation.

Overall impression: Had this along with the 4 Roses and Brandy aged Zhurkov at Hunahpu Day. This is definitely a great imperial stout.

8oz pour from tap at Cigar City, yesterday at Hunahpu release.

Velvety, viscous, dark brown-black liquid, with what appears to be a nicely baked brownie on top, as the thickly carbonated head crowns this brew.

The aroma is full of fudgy chocolate from freshly mixed chocolate batter, nicely balanced vanilla and coffee, and strong esters and alcohol at the nose which come out as the glass is emptied. There is a faint pepper presence that becomes more pronounced after first taste.

To start, let me explain that this was my first taste of Hunahpu, and my anticipation was all over the place. Ratings high, hype even higher. And while I enjoy stouts, my preference lies more with DIPAs.
The hype was right on. This complex brew did not disappoint.
Smooth, bitterness, like semi-sweet chocolate, but balanced by the vanilla and the nicely placed peppers. Full, thick, body, pleasant tingling that starts on the tip of the tongue, begins to remind me of some lingering, resinous hops, then when the tingling spreads to the lips I remember the chiles.

Great Imperial Stout. Complex, tasty, great use of the chiles; can sip this all day--alcohol well hidden.
This is the elixir to get me through the rest of the winter.

Self-pour, on draft at 2011 Florida Brewers Ball.

Pours thinner than you expect. This was my first time experiencing the beer.

Look - Red/Brown/Red-Copper - Most unique looking beer I've experienced in a long time.

Aroma - Chocolate/Cinnamon/Slight Pepper

Taste - Caramel, Toffee, Coffee, Milk Chocolate, Malt.

Thin front, Heavy mouth. After a few minutes, residual heat and spice from the peppers.

Overall: I understand the hype. This beer makes Southern Tier's Choklat and Creme Brulee seem like amateur brews. Probably couldn't drink more than 6oz in a session, though it is delicious.

I first had this beer at the 2010 Stogie's & Stouts party at the Dunedin Brewery in February.

Pours black with big thick dark tan head. Aromas of roasted malts, cocoa, and chocolate. Flavor is robust with thick dark malts, tons of chocolate, light cinnamon, light smoke, and very faint heat from chilis. Mouthfeel is thick and chewy. Not abrasive in any way. Flavors come together so well. This beer comes with tons of hype and it lived up to it. Just like the rest of the CCB brews I have had.

Reviewed on 2/18/2010, updated 4/10/2010. Growler from Big Z Beverage. Pours black with a small but long-lasting dark tan/reddish head. Super pretty head. Aroma of bitter chocolate, lots of cocoa, tons of graham cracker (including some cinnamon), roasted malt, toffee, vanilla, oak. Flavor is quite chocolatey up front with a definite peppery spice note and a chalky, chocolatey finish. Graham cracker still present but less so. As I continue to drink, the pepper/chile spiciness really starts to heat up my mouth. This is one of the most chocolatey beers I've ever had. One of the most unique and well crafted imperial stouts out there. I'm proud to award this beer my first ever 5.0.

I had the pleasure of trying this beer at the 2009 Atlanta Cask Ale Tasting, where it won 1st Place even.

This beer was very dark with about a finger of dark head. It had a smoky smell & taste but also a hint of the peppers with each sip as well as dark chocolate lacing on the side of my glass. You can definitely tell that you're drinking beer with this one. I can see drinking 2-3 of these and calling it a night.

On-tap, served in a tulip

A viscous, ink black body with a one finger mocha head. The head was firm and creamy and fell to a small layer and left some lines of lace here and there.

Heavy roast, coffee grounds, cocoa nibs, spicy peppers and a touch of molasses and licorice. This is a broad and rich aroma, heavy roast. Full and robust.

Deep roasted coffee and dark chocolate up front, with coffee grounds adding a bitter middle. Vanilla and spicy peppers with another heavy flood of roast in the finish. This is a mean, full and robust beer. The finish of heavy roast and a speck of vanilla sweetness lingers on forever.

Smooth, creamy and luscious. The mouthfeel here is perfect. Smooth up front and lush and creamy through the middle.

For the style, this is about as drinkable as it gets. The roast is really heavy and lingers long, which might be the only detriment, but even then, it's not a bad thing. Full, rich and robust with loads of flavor.

This Imperial Stout has a vanilla nose, hints of cocoa. Pour is chocolate black, taste is sweet vanilla, cocoa, malty, nice medium-heavy mouthfeel. I don't detect much of the cinammon, or spicy peppers, until an aftertaste of slight peppers. A worthy Imperial Stout, I would probably have another offering!

Appearance: black in color with a wispy head that breaks down to a clean surface quickly.

Smell: loads of alcohol, pepper, vanilla, and roasted malt tones are easily detectable.

Taste: big flavor as roasted malt is accentuated by some pepper spice, cinammon, vanilla, coffee, and a hint licorice. Alcohol is a bit overwhelming in the beer's flavor profile.

Mouthfeel: a bit thinner than expected for the style. Smooth at the start, smooth and a bit syrupy late. Long lasting alcohol, spice, and roasted tones linger around in the mouth a while.

Drinkability: this is a one glass per session beer. I found this to be a bit hot from the alcohol and spice for me.

On tap at Capone's...
Appears a pitch black with a small tan he'd that quickly fades out into a mild cap. Scattered bits of lacing are left around the glass.
Smell is of molasses, herbal tea, chalk, black grapes, spicy balck and dried red pepper.
Taste is of the aromas with vanilla yogurt, cinnamon, pasilla peppers, and red grapes.
Mouthfeel is full bodied, spiced, a bit of chile heat lingering with cinnamon and cumin. A bit of abv noticed in this.

Served in a snifter at Capone's. The stout was tapped on Saturday and lasted until today! Just my luck.

A: The stout is pitch black, dark as the darkest mole, darker even. A reddish-brown head stands out against the black ale.

S: The nose is dark and rich, plenty of chocolate, both powdery and semi-sweet, abounds, along with cinnamon spice. I was hoping for a hint of smoky ancho heat but didn't come across anything. The dark malts create a a richly sweet body that has me anticipating the first sip.

T: The 11% strength of the ale hits you square on in the first sip. Mixing with the booze is plenty of chocolate, cocoa powdery and sweet, along with more spices, cinnamon and vanilla, although neither is dominant. The richness, and this ale is rich, is remarkable, sweet and filling. I was disappointed that the ancho chiles never made their way into the ale; I think that a touch of heat would be welcome amongst the decadent chocolate malts. A good, scratch that, very good stout.

M: I'm pleased to have a Cigar City stout that lives up to the hype (thanks for nothin' 110K + OT). The semi-sweet, powdery chocolate is reminicent of a sweet mole sauce.

D: I was not expecting to see this on tap, what a surprise. I was pleasantly surprised from the first sip, a crazy rich, warming, strong stout.

Had this side-by-side at Capone's with the Apple Brandy Barrel, which probably influenced this review. Sample was 5.5 oz. into a snifter. Poured a thick, black with a one-finger rich, thick, creamy head. Both the head and great lacing had great retention. Nose was chocolate, malts, toffee and vanilla. Taste was very heavy on the chocolate, but notes of the vanilla, some spice and a bit of the roasted malts. Mouthfeel was thick and creamy with a good level of carbonation. All-in-all, for me this was VERY sweet and I could only drink this at specific times. Great imperial stout but I much preferred the brandy barrel.

Philly beer week on-tap at Capone's (the next day)

Poured into a snifter. Pours an opague black with an extremely thick chocolate colored heading. Lacing is all over the plce. Left ring's down to the last drop. So alive looking for a RIS.

The nose is simply amazing. The main aroma is of the cocoa nibs the used. Quickly followed up cinnamon and a just an all out assault in the nose of coffee.

Taste again heavy in chocolate and coffee. A bite of warm booziness. There is another subtle bite to this beer which I originally thought was the the alcohol content but it was actually the peppers I was tasting all along . Simply amazing.

Mouth is full bodied and the most alive feeling on the palate I have ever felt for an RIS. Some diacytl is slippery on the palate as well.

Uhmm what can I say ? The best Russian Imperial Stout I have ever had.
