Hunahpu's Imperial Stout - Camazotz'sHunahpu's Imperial Stout - Camazotz's
Notes: Imperial Stout with Cinnamon, Vanilla, Cacao Nibs, Chile Peppers and Blackberries.

Legendary among the tribulations faced by the Mayan Hero Twins Hunahpu and Xbalanque is their journey to Zotzilaha, the House of Bats. This was the realm of the Camazotz, the Mayan bat god of night, sacrifice, and death, and it was within his realm that Hunahpu was beheaded. This dark episode in the Hunahpu saga is captured in the midnight-hued blackberries added to the Hero Twin's melange of spices, creating a legendary flavor profile that's worthy of the gods.

Good head production and excellent retention. Body is dark enough to appear murky, but I suspect it is actually quite clear; no noticeable sediment if you slowly roll the liquid around the glass.

The blackberries have a shockingly massive influence on the nose, standing out front and center above everything else. It doesn't smell much like a stout, or even a beer; it smells like berry juice. Pleasant berry juice, mind you, but not at all what I was expecting. Perhaps a touch of peppers tingling my nose.

Smooth and creamy on the palate. While the berries still stand out - fiercely, I might add - everything else comes to play. The vanilla is noticeable up front, adding that creamy aspect to the berries. Cinnamon is prominent on the back half, with the chili peppers adding a mild, vegetal heat. Chocolate is complementary, and most noticeable in the front third. Berries are present throughout the entire sip, but this is a very pleasant aspect to the beer; they're clearly the focus and highlight (the "star" of the beer in pretentious cooking terms), but not so strong as to overwhelm (as they do the aroma). Much smoother and less roasty than base Huna.

Overall, a very nice twist on a legendary beer.

Canned 03/01/2022.

Chocolate-covered blackberries, vanilla, & cinnamon on the nose. Blackberry in the forefront, balanced well by notes of baker’s chocolate & a slowly building chili heat with time & temp. Needed more weight, but was pleasantly impressed with this overall.

Appearance - The beer was black in color with a slight tan head crowning the pour.

Smell - Having had regular Hunahpu moments before, this just smelled like Hunahpu with blackberries.

Taste - The spice and the chocolate of Hunahpu were balanced with the sweet no it’s of blackberry. Added an odd dimension, but it was enjoyable.

Mouthfeel - The body seemed stickier than the original. Perhaps it was just the sweetness of the berries.

Overall - I enjoyed this new wrinkle on a classic.
