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 years last canned seasonal, Aloha Baktun! The word aloha conveys both greeting and goodbye in the Hawaiian language and Baktun 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.

Draft at sb. Pours black with a loose creamy dark tan head. Mild sweet nose, mostly sweet milk chocolate. Creamy medium body with soft carb. Sweet smoky peppers show through the chocolate, cinnamon is dialed back. Interesting at a basic level, and easy to drink.

arminjewell (5715) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - SEP 7, 2013
Pour out of 12 oz can, dark black pour with thin tan head, aroma brought notes of lots of dark chocolate, spice, cinnamon, hints of slight chili, finishing fairly sweet, slight roast. Taste is a mix of spice, cinnamon, hints of roast, coffee notes, hints of dark chocolate, finishing sweet, slightly dry and bitter. Ok, the concept seemed better.

Can. Pours near black with a thin beige head. Medium roasted malts, dark chocolate, and faint hints of spices. Rich and fudgey, with hints of smoke as well. Good stuff.

12 ounce can. Pours a deep jet black color with a small beige head. A sweet nose of chocolate and some pepper. A nice flavor: some stout base here with roast and chocolate, light peppers, not really hot, vanilla, cinnamon, almost combines to taste a bit like pumpkin. Quite nice.

Scopey (5507) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 20, 2013
Can from Hippo beers, Glasgow. It pours darkest brown with a small beige head. The nose is roasted malt, earth, coffee, salted caramel and dark chocolate. The taste is roasty, toast, coffee, cocoa, earth, mild acidity, light bitterness, light spice and oily with a dry, roasty finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Nice canned stout. Pretty drinkable.

Braudog (5486) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - OCT 8, 2013
Can. Nice muddy pour, deep and dark, with a thick tan head of foam. The aroma is also compelling, hinting at some spice and roast. This drinks with a nice character, rich and thick, but not overwhelmingly so. The base is definitely baking chocolate, but the peppers give it a nice little earthy swirl, too. Good stuff.

(12oz can) near black pour, dark tan fine bubbles around the edge. Nose of cinnamon, vanilla, medium rich chocolate, biscotti cookies, cream, very mild chili and cinnamon if you search for them. Fairly complex nose. Taste is a bit ashy, maybe from the chipotle peppers, light cinnamon, vanilla bean, chocolate malt, fairly spicy but well balanced. I think the palate and body itself are a bit thin, other than that, a pretty good stout.

Mora2000 (5346) - McKinney, Texas, USA - APR 14, 2013
On tap at the Big Texas Beer Fest. Brown pour with a tan head. The aroma and flavor feature a ton of chocolate, cinnamon and coffee notes, as well as some herbs and other spices. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. There is a lot going on in this one.
