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.

lusikka (6523) - 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.

LtDan (1784) - Los Angeles County, California, USA - JUL 7, 2013
Appearance: pours dark brown with a tan ring around the edges.

Aroma: Strong roast, dark chocolate. A little fresh wood and herbal hops.

Taste: Dark roast, black coffee mild herbal hops. Slight tartness in the finish.

Mouthfeel: Full bodied ,lively carbonation.

Overall: I am sad I didn’t pick up any of the chocolate, chilies and spices. For me, the roasted dark malt conquered my palate. I’m guessing they were subtle when fresh, and I didn’t crack this baby until March.

jgb9348 (4843) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JUL 7, 2013
EXPLODED CAN!!! Deep dark brown coloured body with a violet glow and i’m guessing, a massive head - but given that the entire can bubbled out and exploded, I’m left with the remnants. Aroma of smoke, tons of roasted malt, a vanilla bomb and a bit of black pepper. Light to Medium-bodied; Assertive vanilla and grassy characteristic with a little sour note from yeast, a good dose of chocolate and some light burn at the end and hints of smoke. Aftertaste nice and complex, but showing less malt than I expected. Overall, probably would have been a nice beer - but given the explosion, a little less than stellar. I sampled this twelve ounce can, purchased from Whole Foods in Portland (Peal), Oregon on 12-April-2013 for US$2.99, held in a complete constant temperature (70degF) in dark (didn’t matter, it was in a can) location for the less than 3 months that this lasted, until it exploded the entire top off the can and the bottom puffed out big - crazy, I’ve only seen this happen to bottles. Sampled at home in Washington on 07-July-2013.

AshtonMcCobb (2918) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 5, 2013
355ml can thanks to unstablefable. Pours opaque black with a nice big crema head. The nose has something savoury and smoky but both of these are mellow, Maybe even aged game, hung meat, pastrami or something. The taste is big coffee and dark chocolate and there’s a long creamy mid palate to the end - nuts too. Overall, interesting beer.

Belgian phenolic, smoke, bread, faint clove, yeast aromas, flavors of Smoke spice, vanilla, frothy head, dark as night, slick, oily, lighter mouthful probably from belgian yeast, pour lacing, soft carbonation bordering on flat.

Brouwerij (942) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUN 29, 2013
Can. Pours a dark brown with quickly diminishing brown head, minimal lacing. Aroma is roasted malt, dark chocolate, slight smoke, mild chili and heat, hint of tobacco. Flavor is mild chili up front with a chocolate, fruity, mildly roasted finish. Quite sweet as usual. Moderate carbonation, medium body, and a smooth texture. The chilies and chocolate are an interesting combination, but it is too sweet to drink much of.
