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.

355mL can. $4. Pours darker, clear cola near black. Larger latte head formation with surprisingly weak retention dwindling to practically nothing in under a minute. Nose is suddy detergent, hints of tar and ash. Hints of smoked meat. Taste is bitter soil, ash, watery body. Weak palate.

Aromas of dark fruit esters, plums, dates, vinous Belgian yeast, bready malt, leathery and floral with a moderatly strong chocolate presence and some earthy chipotle. Baked apples and chocolate muffins. Flavors are earthy, bready, dusty and roasty with mild pepper and stronger chocolate. Medium bodied with a roasty finish. A bit drier than expected.

Dogbrick (7243) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 24, 2013
This beer pours a dark brownish-black color with a hint of ruby around the edges. Thick and foamy beige head that diminishes slowly. Patches of lacing on the glass. Aroma of chocolate, malt and spices. Medium body with flavors of chocolate malt, sweet fruit, cinnamon and a touch of hops. The finish is sweet chocolate up front with a peppery spice aftertaste. Decent overall.

Theydon_Bois (6986) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - AUG 4, 2013
UPDATED: AUG 5, 2013 Can at home, BOE, 04/08/13. Dark black with a frothy tan head. Nose is dark berry fruits, light roast, light spice. Taste comprises dark chocolate, cocoa nibs, sugars, earthy, light chilli notes, dark tangy fruits, ribena berries. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, tangy dark fruit finale. Solid enough stout - one I’d return to.

rosenbergh (6086) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 18, 2014
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.

Ernest (6031) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUN 27, 2013
Can. Head is initially average sized, frothy, brown, mostly diminishing. Body is black. Aroma is moderately malty (chocolate / cocoa powder, caramel, roasted grain/coffee), with notes of vanilla, smoke/char/ash, celery. Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery/syrupy texture, lively/fizzy carbonation, lightly alcoholic. A bit clumsy and cluttered, but ok. The spicing is fairly mild; this is a stout/porter first and foremost, thankfully...was worried this was going to be overly vegetal or cinnamon-like.

5000 (6027) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - AUG 11, 2013
can:   Nearly black, thin sudsy beige head, little lacing.   Sweet roasted malt nose, some chocolate, perhaps even a little bit of pepper.   Sweet roastiness first, sweet pepper second, a touch of cinnamon last.   This is tasty!   Brings me back a little to when I had Morning Brunch, except that was twice the beer this is (sorry Maui).   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Roasty, chocolaty, with some minor pepper and even more minor cinnamon on the finish.   I bet this on Nitro would be fun!
