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.

JDBaker11058 (1359) - Maryland, USA - MAY 9, 2013
Appearance: pours a cola brown that turns purplish black in a snifter, with a tight but foamy yoohoo-colored head that reluctantly fades to a thick cap and decent lacing. Aroma: dark chocolate, hint of lactic tang, ancho chile heat, vanilla, and a whiff of oreo cookie. Taste: burnt black bread, ash, stone, a surprising hint of herb (cut grass?), then maybe some chocolate. Finish: dry, ashy, bitter, with a hint of black pepper. Notes:Palate was overly light, almost watery. It was really noticeable on first sip; when the beer crossed my lips it was almost as if there was no flavor at all, like drinking a slightly burnt mineral water. I was hoping it would get better, because the pour and nose were excellent. Unfortunately, this just absolutely fell apart once I started drinking it. Drain pour, dammit. Hoped for so much more.

Chocolatey with a hint of cinnamon but I get no hint of chipotle. What’s with all these beers I’ve had lately promising assorted chilies but showing little or no sign of them? Tasty but not worth the price of admission.

Doofgoblin (337) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAY 6, 2013
UPDATED: AUG 25, 2013 Pours dark with a brownish head that dissipates after a bit. The carbonation propels the aroma of chocolate, toasted malts, and spices. The taste is similar: chocolate, toasted malts, spices, cinnamon, and faintly coffee. Palate is somewhat thinner than I expected giving it a "dry stout" kind of feel. Overall, it’s easy drinking and the aroma and taste upfront are interesting/different.

Drake (8981) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - MAY 5, 2013
12 ounce can from Beer Run. Pours a dark brown color with a large foamy brown head. Decent head retention. Aroma of chocolate, roast, spice, warm savory notes. The taste is roasted malts, chocolate, tart fruits, spicy finish. Medium bodied. Nice.

Beerenberger (1538) - Fischer, Texas, USA - MAY 5, 2013
Aroma of chocolate, and vegetables, with hints of dark roasted malts and coffee. Pours a solid blackish-brown with a long lasting khaki head and abundent fine lacing. The taste is dark chocolate, and roastiness, with hints of dark roasted coffee, pepper, and cinnamon. Medium body with moderate carbonation. A smooth mouthfeel. Overall, a very enjoyable and tasty brew.

This ebony colored beer has a very pungent aroma. It is spicy. This chipotle and cinnamon overpower the other flavors however. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

monk191 (1087) - California, USA - MAY 3, 2013
A very unique beer. Pours a brown-black with a tan head. Smell is strange. Spices and chipotle, but not particularly appetizing. Taste is better. Lots of chipotle and some cinnamon. Some spicy aftertaste. Taste is better then the smell, interesting, but couldn't have too much. Had in the can. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

TheBeerGod (5336) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - MAY 3, 2013
Can. Black pour with a tall, thick mocha colored head. Aroma is peppery spice, dark chocolate and roasted malt. Taste is peppers, dark chocolate, roasted malt, cocoa, soft cinnamon and chocolate milk. Body is medium but rather creamy and no real heat from the peppers. Ends with more pepper notes, chocolate cake, chocolate milk, soft cinnamon and roasted malt.
