3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a dark brown almost black color with a medium tan head that leaves spotty soapy lacing. Smells of chipotle peppers, roasted malt, Belgian yeast, and dark chocolate. Tastes of coffee, cinnamon, dark chocolate, Belgian yeast, and, chipotle peppers, with a black pepper finish. Mouthfeel is thin and watery with good carbonation. This is a pretty good Belgian stout. I like the added chipotle peppers. Too bad its a one time limited beer.

Canned @ home picked up at 287 Liquor Fort Collins. Pours a clear, deep brown appearance with a brown head. Rich dark chocolate, mild veggie, chili pepper, mild anise, dark fruity aroma. Fairly high carbonation. Cinnamon, vanilla, chili pepper, plum, dark grape, chocolate flavor. I’m not a huge fan of Belgian stouts, but this is ok.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Strong herb filled aroma accompanied by chocolate. Black in color with a thin foam rim. Unique, well rounded flavors of cocoa, chile’s and black patent malt upfront. Undertones of herbs, cinnamon, brown sugar, toffee and other funky unidentifiable flavors. Overall, very complex flavor with strong alcohol and chocolate notes. I’d give this an A rating.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12-oz. can poured into a Maui Brewing shaker. Appearance is that of strong coffee with a half-finger, very uniform dark beige head. Muddled nose of cinnamon, baker’s chocolate, cloves, prunes, and a touch of chili. Flavor is bittersweet at first with chocolate, cinnamon, and agave syrup notes before a faint ester note emerges. The chipotle comes through on the aftertaste with a moderate tongue-prickling heat, but it doesn’t lend much spice to the taste. Silky texture, light body, and low carbonation with a spicy finish that carries for quite a while. It’s worth trying but doesn’t surpass very many of the other similar chocolate-chili stouts I’ve tried.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz can - pours jet black, with medium tan head, mostly diminishing. Aromas of toasted nuts, bit charred, bitter chocolate, coffee, and sour fruit. Thin bodied, taste is cooked nuts, coffee and little bit of lactose. Stout, not imperial or impressive.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
The best Hawaii-produced beer available. Had it on tap at SALT. Saw six-pack cans available at Whole Foods Kahala. As the only stout produced in the islands as I know it, I’ll admit that the Ba’kt’un only stands out in one way. While it doesn’t smell, look or feel like much, it tastes amazing. Strong elements of coffee and chocolate, but not bitter like most imperials and even some oatmeals. Rich and balanced.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pours an inky black with a big, foamy light brown head. Malty aroma with chocolate. Lingering spice taste. OK but not great.

Pours black with a light brown creamy, rocky head with little lacing. Aromas of dark chocolate, toasted nut, peppers and hints of coconut. Smooth flavors with a fairly medium body but a bit thin and watery.
