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.

$3.20 Bottle. Wine Warehouse. Charlottesville. Pours black with an inch of dark brown head. Smells of chocolates and an indiscernible spice. Tastes of chocolate, pepper, and more chocolate - both milk and dark.

Dogbrick (8119) - 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.

Interesting blend of chocolate and chipotle. Wonderful aroma; better than the flavor. Crazy foamy at first. From a can into a pint/stout glass.

(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.

high marks for aroma and appearance - aroma has many things - nice chocolate, coffee, maybe smoke or roasted. dark dark pour. palate is thin for style/ what aroma is like. too much carbonation in taste. this would be better with much lower carbonation - still good, slightly creamy - vanilla, with all of the aromas in taste. good brew with much happening.

wildbeercat (353) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - JUN 16, 2013
12 fl oz / 355mL can into a pint glass. Served cold. Aroma: There is a lot of chocolate and roasted malt going on here. Some nice coffee ground smell. A tiny bit of smoke, even. Really smells quite good. Appearance: This is a handsome, handsome brew. Completely opaque black/dark brown, with a solid, frothy dark brown head. Not tan, not off-white, but dark, dark brown. Handsome. Taste: Good golly miss molly there is a lot of flavor here. Lots of chocolate up front on the arrival. Transitions to some spice and smoke, and ends on smoky pepper. The can mentions something about cinnamon--maybe it’s in there, but it doesn’t stand out to me really. The chipotle pepper is definitely there though. Great stuff! Palate: Full bodied. Moderate-long finish. Overall: What a nice find! The contrast between the bittersweet chocolate and the roasty smoky pepper is something you have to try!

TheGB (510) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - JUN 14, 2013
Pours black with a nice head. Light aroma of dark malt, caramel and hops. Smooth taste with almost a milk stout smoothness. Malt and not much spice on the taste I’d say.

A very nice brew. Pours deep chocolate brown. A nice chocolate and espresso flavor with a spiced after taste. I will be having more of this one! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

bbcd (214) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAY 30, 2013
black with a thin mocha head, poor retention and no lacing. chocolate, earthy vegetables, toast, ...seaweed? i get hints of something that reminds me of the sea. medium bitter, light sweet, umami. medium body, thin feel, fine and tingly carb. very little presence. it makes me think of a stout that somebody watered down.
