2013 bottle into a chalice.

dark black, opaque. no head at all. MASSIVE in your face spell of chocolate and alcohol. I can tell this would improve with age. taste is huge on cocoa and alcohol, cinnamon is also very apparent. not getting any chili peppers though. real good flavor overall. full bodied, no carbonation.

overall a real big imp stout that will just improve with age. give it a year to fully enjoy it.

Thanks goes out to cyrusthepup for this brew.

750ml Bottle

Poured into a chalice a thick black color, some carbonation, very nice almost fizzy/creamy one-finger dark tan head, with some nice big oil slick in the middle of the glass. The nose is very nice malty, with lots of chocolate/toffee notes, some vanilla, some roast notes. The taste is exceptional, malty, chocolate/toffee up the ying/yang, very nice sweetness from the vanilla, with some very nice roast notes, slight cinnamon note comes up. Full Body, this is one very smooth/creamy brew, the ABV is hidden very well. Very Drinkable, Very Well Done CC.

*From notes

A BIG thanks to BZero007 for opening this one. Cheers, Nathan!

A: Damn. This may be the darkest brew I've encountered. With the chili infusion, it adds a bit of a muddy rosewood complexity to the 2.5 head and thick, sticky lacing.

S: Sugar, spice and everything nice. Dark roast black coffee intertwines with the peppery spice and makes for one memorable nose. Shrink me down and lock me inside the bottle - this stuff is incredible.

T: The balance here is pitch perfect. It's spicy, with the hot chili on the fore to the mid. The Zhukov really comes out on the finish, as it's charry and rich like the darkest of dark chocolate. Utterly spectacular.

M: One of the top two or three thickest beers I've encountered. It's huge, and unlike 2010's Zhukov, it's properly carbonated. Massive. Epic. This is such a big and lavish brew.

O: Loved it. I really can't find any fault with Cigar City's Hunahpu. If asked how to improve this one, I couldn't begin to tell you. It's perfect in almost every way, and one of the best beers I've ever had. Offering Joey Redner your first born isn't enough to satisfy the Gods, as this one's worth your second child too.

Pours pitch black, bubbling up a great one finger dark brown head, lingers for a while until it turns to a thick sticky lacing.
Huge cocoa in the smell, lots of cinnamon and vanilla, milky and dark chocolate, fig, raisin, veggie chilli pepper, lower coffee notes, faint wood. The smell is incredible, with just a small hint of booze.
Roasty robust taste, huge with dark chocolate, riddled with dry plums and figs, spicy with a lot of woody cinnamon, rich vanilla, even faint licorice. Mellows down and gets a bit sweeter, with sticky molasses and toffee, only to be balanced perfectly in the end with some roasted coffee, dark malts and faint smoked woodiness. The chillies bring a nice warm prickle in the back of the throat, just enough so you know they're there. Taste really brings up all that's written on the label, amplified, rich and perfectly balanced.
Thick body, very smooth, with a very tiny bit of booze present, nowhere near disturbing. Full complex aftertaste, extra roasty.
A huge imperial stout, unique, worth any effort and future budget-hole to get again.

A: The definition of a motor oil pour. I was mildly shocked to see the single layer of mocha bubbles that did rise at the end, not to last for even as long as it took to walk with my glass to a chair.

S: Lots of chocolate, backed by a mix of green and dried chilis. Cinnamon takes a distant back seat.

T: Wow... like dark drinking chocolate with a shot of strong espresso added. Chili comes in, but just faintly. Vanilla is also present, but without much sweetness it stays in the background.

M: Low carbonation. Full-bodied, but not as thick as the appearance would suggest. Lingers very nicely, but the residual sweetness is low enough to keep it from becoming cloying.

O: I've had a couple bad experiences with aged versions of this beer (unpleasant green pepper aromas), but this one redeems it completely in my eyes. An extravagant beers, but not so overwhelming that I couldn't easily drink the whole bottle. I do think this experience puts this beer firmly in the "drink fresh" category for me, though. (This bottle has been in my refrigerator since my buddy brought it home from Hunahpu Day.)

Ditmier brought out this big ole 750 a short while back.. very cool.. thanks Eric!!

Pours with a dark deep brown head.. the brew is the expected black with good retention and lace... thick on later pours.

Aromas are all over the place with dark chocolate and lite vanilla.. bits of char and some background chili aroma.

Flavor begins with chili spiked melted dark Hersheys.. espresso and black malts.. something that I can only derive as cinnamon (minor).. dark dried fruits and leather.. some tobacco shows with the sweet warmth... The chilis are about right for me.. I could even stand and enjoy some more.. Digging this one for sure... Pretty thick body and a lighter than expected carbonation... Very nice.

2011 Vintage. Huge thanks to hoppypocket for this one. Poured in to Bruery tulip.

A - Poured ink black; one of the darkest pours I've seen. Half a finger of medium to dark brown head formed and receded to a thin layer.

S - A big hit of semi-sweet chocolate up front followed by roast, chili peppers, a touch of sweet vanilla and a hint of cinnamon.

T - Big sweet chocolate flavour up front along with the chillies, which provide great flavour without a big spiciness. The roast enters in the middle with a touch of sweet vanilla. Cinnamon doesn't show up until the aftertaste, and adds another layer to the complexity of this beer. The flavours are very well integrated.

M - Medium body, creamy. Light carbonation.

A big thanks to Avagadro for this 2011 bottle, thanks Aaron! This one pours a very dark dark brown in color on the verge of being black. It's very viscous and coats the glass. It has a nice creamy chocolate brown head that sticks to sides. The aromas consist of sweet chocolates, cinnamon, spices, with light peppers. It's almost dessert like. The flavors feature a nice array of chocolates, roasted malts, cinnamon, nutmeg, other spice with light ancho peppers. It's very, very good and coats your palate. The body is perfect and it drinks really soft. Overall this is near perfect. I'm glad I finally opened one.

This beer was everything I’d hoped for and more, and I enjoyed it thoroughly. Thick and viscous, sludgy black pour with a rocky tanned head that has excellent retention, good lacing on the glass. Aroma is roasty and sweet, with lots of chocolate and coffee, plus a subtler hit of earthy, spicy chilies and faint cinnamon.

Flavor packs all of that; nicely rounded sweetness compliments the bitterness of the roast malt; there are prominent chocolate fudge and espresso notes, some dark fruit, and moderate chili heat that mainly emerges in the finish. Nothing too fiery or over the top but enough to let you know it’s there. Cinnamon is fairly subtle. A perfect blend of sweet and bitter. Booze is there but it’s not overly hot or in your face.

Big bodied, thick and chewy, just the way I like it. Medium low carbonation, creamy and sticky, perfect mouthfeel overall. Lingers after the swallow, sweet and somewhat hot and tingly from the chilis. Exceptional. I was reminded both of Marshall Zhukov’s, the base beer, and of Alesmith’s Speedway Stout with chipotle and morita peppers. So glad I got to try this one finally!

2011 bottle, opened in 2011.

A – Black body with the one of the darkest heads I’ve ever seen. The head has super-fine bubbles and holds up well with nice retention and lace. The beer is incredibly viscous with better legs than most red wines.

S – Dark brown sugar, cinnamon, espresso, ancho chilies, light booze.

T – This beer is what a billionaire's milk chocolate should taste like. Chocolate covered espresso beans, delicious raisiny ancho chilies, cinnamon, soft pepper heat, toffee, and vanilla. The flavors are soft, complex, well balanced and prominent. An absolutely beautiful flavor profile.

M – Stunningly smooth, medium/full body. Great sweet vanilla / spicy chili / bitter cocoa finish with a touch of warm booze.

O – Fantastic balance and flavor. It’s rare that a brewer posts an ingredient bill as complex as this on the bottle and everything comes through. It's even rarer that those flavors come through so clean and incredibly well integrated. Tip of the hat to CCB, job well done.

3/10/12 bottling

Thin deep deep mocha head on a black beer. "Is this ever going to stop dripping??" Alcohol legs damn near stain the snifter. Good collar, head retention, and lacing for a stout with this magnitude of an ABV. One of the thickest beers I've ever had.

Very present chile aroma, deep chocolate aromas.

All stated secondary flavors well represented...chiles, vanilla, cacao...cinnamon really comes though at the end, unexpectedly. Tastes bounce of each other and from what I gather the order is vanilla>chocolate>chile>cinnamon.

Thick mouthfeel. Lower end of carbonation, fits.

Complex for sure. Glad I split this between four guys because I don't think I could, or would want to, drink this to myself. Started to become muddled acter the palate got a little fatigued. Thanks Elliott.

750 ml bottle, big thanks to my boy tpd975 for the hookup, SNIIITCH!

Pours a dark and opaque black, no light gets through, medium sized dark brown head forms, one of the darkest heads I've ever seen, settles down to a medium size ring, lots of lace chunks stick, with some spots.

Smell is neat, big chocolate and vanilla notes, brown sugar, peppery spice, caramel, toast, coffee, oaky, some alcohol, cinnamon comes through, really nice.

Taste is similar, super super roasty up front, fresh coffee beans, cocoa nib chocolate character, toffee, cinnamon and sugar, lightly peppery, vanillla, pretty intense flavours going on in this one, caramelized sugar in the finish, almost burnt, neat, with some alcohol.

Mouthfeel is nice, medium bodied with low to medium carbonation, a bit of warmth and some spice going down, but very drinkable. A nice beer and kickass idea! I've been inspired. Thanks Greg!!

Pours a flat looking crude black and brown, almost no head on it, nothing to provide lace or retention. Aroma, didn't pull any chile or cinnamon out of this one, just smelled like a lot of two row and roasting, which is fine.

Taste, muted chile flavors, nowhere near what a good chili beer should have. Solid roast flavor, chocolate was mild. Thickness of the beer was substantial, but for all the discussion about how complex this beer is, I found it to be extremely run of the mill and straightforward. Some chocolate malt, some minor bland chili additions, I don't know where the notion of cinnamon comes, maybe you just have to drink these uber fresh. Unfortunately, I didn't pull any of those flavors out of the fresh rum barrel one either. Didn't really see what the big difference between this and Marshall Zhukov was, other than that one is even more sludge like.

Just flat out, one of the more disappointing top 100 beers I've ever come across. Not a bad beer, but really not a great one either. Take a standard giant stout, make it limited, blam.

No wonder so many of these are on ebay vs. drinking them yourself.

25.4oz bottle poured into a snifter glass.

A - Deep Chocolatey brown with a deep brown head consisting of large bubbles.

S - Chocolate, chiles, and some coffee.

T - Strong Chiles, Chocolate, and Tobacco- like a old wet, used up cigar.

D - Mild Carbonation, oily in the mouth.

O - I was really looking forward to this one, but I was dissapointed. The ingredients are clearly present, but not in an appealing way. The wet tobacco flavor was just too much for me. The chile flavor was also present, but it didn't seem to fit.

Bottle courtesy of Freethyhops. Thanks Riley!

Served near room temperature, it pours a pitch black with a 1 finger head of dark chocolate foam. The rather good head of foam surprised me. I wonder if there's any lacing? Yes sir eee.

The smell has notes of vanilla and roasted malt, cocoa, and some spice. Could be the cinnamon mentioned on the label. Not an overly big bold nose. And just when I say that, the smell *does* intensify and is big and bold. Resmells are always a must as giving time for the beer to "breathe", perceptions can easily change.

The taste has a BIG blast of a cocoa bitterness and roasted malt, vanilla, cinnamon spice, some sweet malts, and a spicy kick about mid palate that has *got* to be from the chiles. Wow. What a kick to the flavours they are. I can taste a little bit of tartness floating around in there but not much and it isn't needed at all. Some warming starts to creep in but I can't say the alcohol is a big factor tastewise. Delicious brew.

Full bodied with lightish carbonation. Super good mouthfeel.

Drinkability? For the abv and the really thick body that this brings to the table, very good. This will easily be close to a one hour session but I ain't complaining...

750ml bottle

A- Poured into a Cigar City tulip glass. This is one thick beer as it is poured into the glass. It is pitch black with a tan colored head with good retention and lacing.

S- The aroma is fantastic and becomes more and more complex as the beer warms in the glass. The first two things that come to mind in the aroma are chocolate and cinnamon with dark roasted malts, smoke and a faint presence from the chilis.

T- Wow! The taste is insane! Dark roasted malts up front with bittersweet chocolate and fresh strong espresso lingering into the finish. There is a lot of lingering bitterness as well from the hops. Finally, this beer has quite a bit of warmth in the finish from the alcohol. This beer seems like it is going to age wonderfully and should get better and better with age.

M- The mouthfeel is unlike any other beer I have had. It is a full, thick, smooth and very moderately carbonated beer.

O- Overall, Hunahpus lives up to it's mythical, legendary hype. Great job Cigar City!

750ml 2013 bottle poured into tulip 14/12/13, REVIEW # 2000!!!! I hope this ones worthy of such a milestone, big Cheers to the most awesome Rutager for the bottle

A black liquid right out of the bottle, just a thumbnail of cola for an edge when held to the light, shes dark alright, even the foams dark, three fingers worth falls after a few sips leaving no lace much to my surprise, second pours no different with nothing sticking

S bakers chocolate, coco, a little char, chilli peppers, cinnamon sticks, peppermint, molasses, faint vanilla, a little espresso, smells a little woody but I as far as I know this isn't barreled, just a hint of booze and plenty more chocolate

T some unburnt cigarette tobacco, (yes I've actually tasted a ciggy...don't ask questions!) strange fruity notes I can't quite place, and everything I smell, rich as all hell and the booze is gone, terrific stuff!!

M faint heat builds but never really accumulates to much, thick liquid, mellow carbonation stops short of creamy, peppers and chocolate syrup just keep going on the finish, and my lips almost stick together

O before this hit my glass I was impressed, the second I cracked the bottle I could smell the chocolate and I could see the darkness before the stream out of the bottle hit my glass, sexy at every turn

I almost feel guilty drinking this one by myself, "almost" being the operative word, quite worthy of the 2000 milestone. The warming chilli works great with this Alberta Winter evening but I couldn't imagine drinking this in the hot humidity of Florida

Growler shared by HOPSHUNTER - thanks!

Pours black with a one-finger dark brown head. The head recedes into a wispy layer on top leaving solid lacing.

Smells amazing. Vanilla and smooth chocolate notes meet up with deep and dark malt flavors with just a hint of underlying heat. Tying everything together are hints of cinnamon. What really seals the deal for me in the aroma department is not what is included but in what levels it's included. Everything present plays off of each other perfectly.

Tastes great. Roasted malt flavors and robust dark chocolate kick things off and are joined shortly by mild hints of vanilla. The vanilla serves to sweeten things up a bit until near the end of the sip when an earthy heat that builds on itself enters into things and carries through to a mildly bitter ending. The cinnamon doesn't make nearly as much impact as it does on the nose.

Mouthfeel is very good. It's got a very smooth thickness with soft carbonation.

Drinkability is great. I finished my glass absurdly quickly and could easily have five more trying to dissect everything going on in this beer.

Overall this is one of the most well done and interesting beers I can remember having. I look forward to trying this again someday and hoping that it's as good as I remember it being. Do yourself a favor and make it a point to try this beer.

This is my first of 2 bottles from a trade with Dstructo. 750mL bottle filled to the cap line, literally < 5mm of space between liquid and cap.

The beer pours out dark brown and opaque with a foam that is at first reddish-tan color, fading to mocha color. Thick thick head, leaving a layer of foam that never dissipates to the liquid line. The beer smells outstanding, an obvious perfect score. Dark roasted malts and chocolate, some vanilla and other unknown spice, probably cinnamon based on the label. Really loved the nose.

The taste is nearly as good as the aroma. It starts with chocolate and sweet malts roasted to the edge of burning. Behind that you get the vanilla/cinnamon flavors, and finally some pepper burn in the aftertaste. Ancho and pasilla chiles to be exact.

Thick bodied, just as it should be, matching the huge flavors with a huge mouthfeel. Overall an excellent stout, I loved the addition of the chiles and cacao nibs.

Adding 2011 version, sampled 1/28/11 with mrand01 courtesy of whartontallboy.

All be below stand true except the chillies and cinnamon were slightly more predominant, balancing the sweet chocolate sludgy base beer. So for my money, I liked the fresher example more. A world class beer regardless, but I would recommend drinking sooner rather than later if you have any.

2010 Version courtesy of mgoblue5743 from an in-person trade.

Pours the most viscous black oily looking sludge I have ever seen come out of a bottle of beer to date. The head is the darker brown I have ever seen, period. As it slowly dissipates you get a stupid amount of soapy dark brown lacing.

Aromas are off the charts. It begins with a melange of dark bitter cocoa and lighter sweet milk chocolate. Second whiff I get various kings of spices that initially overwhelm my nostrils, highlighted by cinnamon and mild chilies. Wow this is crazy... as it warms a little more I get the vanilla beans and some stronger molasses.

The tastes begin with a nice milk chocolate sweetness up-front then mixed with loads of dark chocolate and lesser vanilla, followed by some growing espresso bitterness and spice (chilies and cinnamon) on the back end. Spices were much more apparent on the nose than in the flavor but are still definitely there. Roasted bitterness becomes slightly burdensome on the palate as it warms, but I am nit-picking at this point.

The mouthfeel is very thick and chewy on the tongue. The carbonation is minimal which helps to enhance the creaminess on palate. Flavors linger on the palate forever, initially you never want this to end and luckily it doesn't for long after you sample. As with the flavor, the heft and complexity of this beer weighs on you as you consume further.

Overall, this was fantastic. Leaps and bounds above Marshall Zhukov. Not a drop of alcohol. So many different flavors dancing on the tongue on palate. Not an everyday beer by any means, one to sip and savor because of it's super crazy complex flavor profile and amazing viscosity. Probably better consumed with a friend or two (although I enjoyed mine solo for my first experience, albiet over a 2 night period).

Thanks to pushkinwow for this - 2013 edition

Appearance - Dark brown colour with an average size frothy head. I can't make out the amount of carbonation showing and there is some decent lacing. The head lasted for around 2-3 minutes before it was gone.

Smell - Malts, chocolate, grains, coffee, chilies, vanilla, booze

Taste & Mouth - There is a below average amount of carbonation and I can taste malts, chocolate, and coffee. There is also some vanilla, dark fruit, chicory, and chilies.

Overall - I'm not a fan of peppers/chilies in my beer normally, but they work so well with this beer. One of the better beers I have ever had for sure, and something that is well worth seeking out. A big bold flavourful beer that somehow remains quite drinkable and balanced.

I drank this from a 22oz bottle into my Orval glass.

The beer pours super dark black, hardly any brown highlights in the light. The head is also a very dark brown, however, sadly it only rises about half a inch and is gone right away. Light lacing.

The aroma is on the lighter side but its vey complex, wish it was a little more robust. There is so much going on here, on the front roasted malts, almost smokey, then small notes of vanilla, and cocoa. The smoke might also be presenting as light ancho chiles.

The taste is pretty good, lots going on as well. Lots of roasted malts on the front, cocoa nibs that are incredibly sweet with a hint of the chiles, very nice and unique. The finish is super sweet. Great to have a stout that isn't dominated by coffee, there's no coffee at all and its refreshing.

The feel is nice and coating.

Oveall, this is really good, a taste that keeps you guessing. Its really hard to get an exact point of something, keeps you guessing.

2011 vintage, half acre goblet

HUNA

Beyond thick - lumpy ebony body. There's a heck of a lot going on here - I definitely still got a lot of cacao and fudgy chocolate goo. The chilies play well in the mix and provide a nice contrast without being offensive. As they should be, cinnamon and vanilla were in the background and contributed nice compliments.

This has a nice recipe that could have been botched by playing any of the ingredients too much - instead, this is a nice harmonious RIS that was nice to finally consume.
