11. Cigar City Hunahpu's Imperial Stout

Brewed by Cigar City Brewing
Style: Imperial Stout
Origin: Tampa, Fla.

Cigar City Brewing aims to use fresh and local ingredients that reflect the culture and heritage of Tampa Bay. In Mayan myth, the god Hunahpu gave the gift of cocoa to the Mayan people, thus making it an appropriate name for this beer, which is said to taste of chocolate, vanilla and spice.

The base recipe is Cigar City’s Marshal Zhukov Imperial Stout. However Hunahpu is a richer version aged on pasilla and ancho peppers as well as vanilla, cinnamon and cocoa nibs. “Killer,” “incredible” and “insane” are just some of the words used to describe it by raters.
