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 Ė this yearís last canned seasonal, Aloha Bíakítun! The word aloha conveys both greeting and goodbye in the Hawaiian language and Bíakítun 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.

Location: Can from State Line, 8/9/13

Aroma: The nose is heavy spice and roasted malts, some coffee, chocolate, and a little fruit
Appearance: It pours a murky dark brown color with a small tan head that leaves mild lace
Flavor: The taste is roasty and smokey with lots of spice and some mild sweetness
Palate: The body is medium, it has plus carbonation, and a long tingly/spicy finish
Overall Impression: There were something about this one that worked really well for me and otherís that didnít work quite as well. The spice is almost overpowering, which detracts from the flavor a bit, but overall, it is still a solid brew.

Black pour, tan head, decent lacing and retention. Aroma is roasty with notes of chocolate, caramel. Medium bodied, rich roasted flavor. A barrel aged imperial version of this would be fun.

A truly unique and exceptionally fine tasting Stout from Maui Brew Co. Itís a Belgian Stout inspired by ancient Mayan culture. That means there is chocolate and spices added. An interesting combination from a Hawaiian brewery.

Piano key black. Nice tall head, dark latte foam in color and consistency, but it doesn't last. Smells irony (like Guinness), dominated by caramel and chocolate, with the faintest waft of cinnamon. Kinda like the cinnamon brownies I make. Kinda. There's a hint of walnut here that I really dig, and a bit of brown sugar. Nice. For a beer that lists cinnamon, chipotle, and chocolate as ingredients, this doesn't taste much like cinnamon, chipotle, and chocolate. There's a vague cola-like cinnamon spice note, even vaguer smokiness, and somehow less chocolate than an ordinary stout. Mostly this tastes like liquorice – molasses, dates, cola, anise – which is no bad thing, not at all. But it doesn't do, as they say, what it says on the tin. The texture is a bit thin and bubbly as well, and that, combined with the oddly spiced flavor, makes me feel like this is less a great stout and more like a good (but weird) whisky and cola. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I havenít 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. Itís strange because it does and it doesnít 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. Itís like the chili supports the sweetness of the chocolate to give it a smoother wash down. Itís 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 Iím always jazzed about. Would have like more chilies and cinnamon spice though, it was just too subtle for me.

355 ml can.
Pours pitch black color with a medium sized, rapidly dissipating head. Aroma of hops, chocolate, roasted malts and some caramel. Flavor of roasted malts, cocoa, dark chocolate and some mild fruity and vanilla notes. Low carbonation, roasty and malty palate. Very nice.
