COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Sure.. the scientists have published essays, the philosophers poems, the naysayers flyers.. but here at the center of the Maui Brewing micro-verse, we are publishing the ultimate in doomsday aloha – this year’s last canned seasonal, Aloha B’ak’tun! The word aloha conveys both greeting and goodbye in the Hawaiian language and B’ak’tun refers to the 3000+year cycle of the Mayan Calendar which is ending. This apocalyptic Belgian-style stout is brewed with Hawaiian chocolate, locally-grown chipotle chilies and cinnamon spice.

12 oz can. From alesbymail.co.uk.
Black colour with a small tan head. Roasted malt, berries, vinegar, mild sweetness and mild bitterness in the aroma. The flavour is roasted malt, mild vegetables, dark chocolate, mild bitterness and mild ashy dryness. Quite drinkable but I was expecting more chili flavour.

Can. Pours a dark black pour with a foamy rapidly dissipating java colored head. Nose is malt with chocolate and cinnamon. Taste is rich chocolate, creamy with some peppery spice. Finishes on chocolate malty peppery notes, with moderate lingering. Nice. Quaff Score 8 / 10

zgaier (1393) - Coral Springs, Florida, USA - JAN 17, 2014
Pours pitch black with a brown head and aroma of spices and chocolate. Taste is sweet and creamy, nice milk chocolate, spices, roasted malt, liquorice, and light chilies leading to a spicy, chocolate finish. Solid stout

WheatKing (1296) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 16, 2014
Can. Couldn’t get my mouth around the name so I just called it "Hakuna Matata". hope that’s ok. Pours black, tan head. Nose is licorice, spicy pepper, dark chocolate. Flavour has a bit of dusty coffee, choc, pepper comes through on the finish but not too spicy at all, smooth mouthfeel (which seems a given for all stouts poured from cans). Nice, these guys do non-traditional ingredients quite well imho.

onceblind (4078) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JAN 9, 2014
Black pour with a thin kahki head. Nose is a bit spicy and chocolaty--not spicy like heat, but like earthy cinnamon and herbal tones, with some raw cocao nibbs and a bit of roast. The flavor is a bit light but the body is mostly full, good roasted barley tones with a mild chocolaty sweetness, ending with a touch of earthy notes and some cinnamon. Not too keen on it overall, it’s chocolaty but earthy-bitter.

IndianaRed (2466) - Boise, Idaho, USA - DEC 28, 2013
From a can into a pint glass, Pretty much black, very nice dense light tan head. Toffee and dark roast aroma with milk chocolate notes. Mainly straight forward light moderate roast flavors. Light bodied and a touch metallic at the end. Doesn’t taste as big as %7.

Beergeek23322 (2268) - Chesapeake, Virginia, USA - DEC 27, 2013
12/26/2013. From can. Black with a beige head. Roasted malt aromas with spices and chocolate. Flavors are rich, bitter, but with some acidity that throws it off balance.

daknole (9114) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - DEC 23, 2013
Brown color, tan head. Cocoa powder, chili peppers, roasted malt, some roasted nuts, burned toast. Nice beer but needs to pack a bigger punch IMO.

gegwilson (1167) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 22, 2013
Can in the Head of Steam, Durham. Black body with fading tan head. Huge chocolate coffee aroma. Vary dry and bitter with lots of coffee and dark chocolate and a burnt toast finish. Nice but lacking something.

Davhgbrew (940) - Coconut Creek, Florida, USA - DEC 21, 2013
Chocolate nose. Creamy tan head. Sips sweet chocolate. Middle has Chipotle pepper and sweetness, which to my surprise isn’t working well. Full body throughout. Milky cocoa in the finish.
