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.

Had this once sometime last year...canned. Hint of chocolate on an otherwise sweet roasted nose. Flavors range from burnt coffee to dark chocolate to pepper to hints of spicy hops on the finish. Pretty good stuff.

Smells a little chocolaty, a little like coffee, but kind of funky too, I think from the pepper. Pours deep black, can’t see at all through it even when held up to the sun. Tastes a little smoky, bitter finish, overall kind of weak.

beerme31 (478) - Holly Springs, North Carolina, USA - MAY 23, 2013
Can. Pours black, brown head. Aroma is roasty, chocolate, caramel, and spices. Medium sweet taste. Medium body, creamy texture, coffee and spice in the finish. Didn’t pick up on the chilies which was disappointing. Too thin for a stout which was the style they were going for. Overall good flavor, would drink again.

An absolutely beautiful dark chocolate pour with a big mocha head that leaves a perfect ring of lacing. The aroma is dark chocolate with the chipotle as a subtle undertone. The taste is dark chocolate with a little bit of a peppery kick in the finish. The flavor is slightly disappointing as I don’t detect any cinnamon but it’s pretty smooth at 7% and surprisingly drinkable! So close to being a phenomenal beer!

On tap at the brew pub in lahaina. Pours dark with a tan head. Aroma is very chocolaty. Flavour takes a different turn, with the spices taking hold of the show. Some smokiness as it finished and then into the roasted barley and coffee notes. Very complex I love it! Palate needs work. Its way too thin and watery. Probably preferable in the hot humid climate, but strange compared to most stouts. Overall this is a really good beer though.

bytemesis (2952) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - MAY 18, 2013
Can. Pours opaque black with a medium dark brown head and good lacing. Aroma is coffee, cigarettes, dark roasty malts, spices, cinnamon. Flavor is the same, with a touch of chili, but no real head. Light sweet, light bitter, light spicy finish. Medium body, bubbly carbonation, creamy mouthfeel. Not bad, not amazing.

radagast83 (4417) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - MAY 18, 2013
12oz can. Poured a dark black color with a small tan head. Aroma is roasted chocolates, dark malts, touch of dried fruits, pepper notes, cinnamon and a little cocoa. Flavor is roasted notes, malts, touch of light pepper heat in there, with cinnamon and a long lasting chocolate notes. Not nearly as enjoyable as I had hoped, but okay.
