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.

This what i describe as a’’flat cocacola’’ beer. Looks beautiful. Pretty tight on the nose. Taste is however packed with flavour. Distinct charred notes. Smooth finish with a slight bitterness. Medium bodied.

Pours a thick, opaque, black with a large, lasting, foamy brown-sugar head. Aroma of cinnamon, mild chile, subtle dark chocolate. Flavor of roasted malt, chocolate dialed up a bit, cinnamon quite subtle, and Belgian yeast contributing only subtly. The mix of flavors is really nice, nothing overpowers. Excellent.

12 oz can from "Lifesource" Salem. $2.49 Wonderful looking beer poured into my PBR goblet!. Black as night with a thick tan head creamy goodness. Cocoa,burnt malts and caramel nose..pleasing. Taste is semi dark chocolate, slightly smokey,roasted nuts and oats and a faint hot pepper..excellent stuff. Great palate..keeps my taste buds tingling and guessing! I really liked this one. I have had only 2 beers from this brewer and loved them both. Must try more.

Can @ The BeerMongers... Poured thick black with an easy forming, light brown head. This gave off a tin can, metallic tasted in both the nose and initial flavor. Some of the most metallic I have ever experienced out of a can. As it warmed this faded, thankfully. Mostly chocolate in here. Even a hint of cinnamon. The chipotle seemed absent, maybe added some smoked notes, but hardly any spice or flavoring. The Belgian yeast also didn’t affect the flavor much, perhaps just gave it a thinner body, which allowed the roast and dark chocolate notes to dominate.

Draft at sb. Pours black with a loose creamy dark tan head. Mild sweet nose, mostly sweet milk chocolate. Creamy medium body with soft carb. Sweet smoky peppers show through the chocolate, cinnamon is dialed back. Interesting at a basic level, and easy to drink.
