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.

I haven’t heard good things about this brand of beer, so I was a bit apprehensive to try one. I have always heard their brews were mediocre and at best flavorless. Having said that I had to try this one. It’s strange because it does and it doesn’t taste like a stout. It has a super smooth head. Dark and chocolaty but sweet at the same time. Spicey notes with undetectable chili fire. It’s like the chili supports the sweetness of the chocolate to give it a smoother wash down. It’s an interesting take on a stout, more different than say an interpretation by Stone. I say try it. I always tend to save my stout consumption for the Fall or Winter, but this is a nice and refreshing Summer Interlude.

12oz can poured into glass. This was a very nice stout, and out of a can which I’m always jazzed about. Would have like more chilies and cinnamon spice though, it was just too subtle for me.

Scopey (6136) - 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.

lusikka (5927) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 16, 2013
355 ml can.
Pours a pitch black colour with a dark beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, strong smoked peppers, leather and lavender. Flavour of strong roasted malts, cherries, spices, smoked peppers, coffee, chocolate, mellow caramel sweetness and bitterness. Medium bodied, a bit thin mouthfeel and a very rich, dry, warming, malty and mellow finish. What a great complex stout without being overwhelming.

355ml can, pours black with small off white head. A Belgian stout. Dark chocolate malts balanced with dark dried raisin and blackberries and watery cheap cola. Finish is well balanced and slightly bitter. Pretty good.

WildcardZone (7) - Montana, USA - JUL 15, 2013 does not count
Lots of sediment. Poor head retention. Initial reaction was better than final impression. Probably handled poorly after leaving the brewery. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

elihapa (1525) - Honolulu, Hawaii, USA - JUL 8, 2013
Maui Aloha Baktun 5/15/13 very handsome faux Polynesian can. Nose is Belgian yeasty notes, wheat, chocolate, and a blossomy fruitiness. Dry mouthfeel, almost chalky, with flavors that start with dusty chocolate and incorporate fruit and nut nougat bar. The cinnamon is there, but why? It seems to dry out the finish even more. Just a touch awkward. 3.1.
