A surprisingly rich brown ale, malty and nutty without being too sweet. Our go-to bottle of choice while on Kauai.

Bottle. Pours a dark brown with a tan head. Aroma of malts, something sour, tropical fruits. Flavor is of roasted malts, toffee, and is very smooth. Better than I was expecting.

ben4321 (5087) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JUL 5, 2012
UPDATED: JUL 21, 2012 Location: Draft at the Yard House - Honolulu, 7/5/12

Aroma: The aroma is roasted/burnt malts, along with some toffee and caramel
Appearance: Pours a dark amber brown color with a beige head and heavy lacing on the glass
Flavor: The taste is heavy malty, but not heavy sweet, roasty and a hint burnt, lightly dry finish
Palate: The body is medium, with good drinkability, a smooth feel, and soft-average carbonation
Overall Impression: I liked this one. It turned out to be a more then solid example of the style. I haven’t been overly impressed with the (non Maui Brewing) local Hawaiian beers, so I wasn’t expecting much, but it exceeded expectations.

~Pours clear brown with orange tints. Big lasting creamy off white head. ~Light roasty, nutty malt aroma with caramel and citrus. ~Malty biscuity flavor, light roast, with citrusy hops. ~med body, med co2, lasting bitter finish. ~Dont care too much for choice of hops on this one. I wish the malts came through more. A bit bitter.

theisti (3590) - Kansas, USA - JUN 11, 2012
Shaker pint draft at Leilanas on Kaanapli Beach on Maui. The pour is a lightly hazed brown copped with a small light tan head. The aroma is soft nut sweet, earth, and nutty malt. As it warmed, some roast came out as well. The taste is dry, almost dusty, softly sweet nut. The sweet integrates with toast malt and the nuttiness, and really fades out to focus on the earthy malt, with slight roastiness. The palate is medium bodied, though highly drinkable due to its bright carbonation. I really enjoyed the character of this beer, fresh and clean, on of the best browns I have had in awhile.

I had this on tap at the Hula Grille in Ka’anapali, Maui, Hawaii. It’s a nice roasty brown ale.

Powertrip (1000) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - APR 11, 2012
Single bottle purchased from a small store in Hanalei on Kaua’i island on 04/09/2012. Colour: Kind of a dark amber with medium lightly off-white head. Nose: Starches and yeast. Hazelnut/macademia nut, glazed donut, slight gaseous aroma. Taste: Medium sweet, medium-light bitter, light sour. Big onslaught of caramel then resides to light toasted nut. Simple but effective flavor.

Bottle shared by Marcus. Pours dark amber with a beige head. Aroma of roast malt, hops and hint of chocolate. Med body. Flavor is very smooth brown ale, not harsh like some. It’s just off dry.
