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.

Can from Coppers, Newcastle. This is an inky black beer that pours out of the can with a rapidly disappearing dark brown head. It has rich chocolate and spicy fruity flavours, earthy woody chilli notes with a sweet tart chocolate finish.

Mahalo Doofgoblin. Thick black pour, dense tan foam. I’m not a fan of peppers in my beer, but this one works well. The spice is instantly evident, but not hot or heavy. Rather, it’s well integrated with the chocolate and smokey flavors that follow. A little sweet toasted malt in the finish. Better than the sum of its parts.

mile (2887) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 12, 2013
Can. Very dark brown - almost black, small to average and fully diminishing light brown head. Moderate, malty and sweetish aroma, some roasted malt and light coffee, faint spiciness (pepper, cinnamon). Body is light to medium, malty and sweetish flavor, light caramel and light roasted malt. Finish is average, malty and lightly sweetish, some roasted malt and light coffee, faint spiciness. Bit watery stout with roastiness and faint spiciness/pepper.

whittleb1 (7) - - SEP 9, 2013 does not count
Pours black with little cola colored head. Relatively carbonated for a stout. Some malt in the nose, but not much. Bitter chocolate and pleasing sweet malt flavor, but less spice than I was expecting. Overall a decent stout.

fontjt (77) - Louisiana, USA - SEP 8, 2013
Can: Poured black with a dark tan foamy head. Scents of bread, roasty, chocolate. Taste is muted chocolate. Not that good.

JohnRMurdoch (3207) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - SEP 8, 2013
12oz can from Good Spirits Co. Almost black, big dark beige head. Toasted chocolate malt aroma. Toasted chilli & coffee flavour. Bitter hot chilli aftertaste. OK but not really my thing.

Very nice beer, nice body good head retention, lacing was solid. Pleasant aroma. And the flavors were in-depth.

arminjewell (6100) - Farmington Hills, Michigan, USA - SEP 7, 2013
Pour out of 12 oz can, dark black pour with thin tan head, aroma brought notes of lots of dark chocolate, spice, cinnamon, hints of slight chili, finishing fairly sweet, slight roast. Taste is a mix of spice, cinnamon, hints of roast, coffee notes, hints of dark chocolate, finishing sweet, slightly dry and bitter. Ok, the concept seemed better.

RichardGretton (4228) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 3, 2013
Bottle. Black beer with a good but soon disappearing light brown head. The aroma is mildly roasted, and the flavour has some bitterness and a smooth roasted nature. Overall a good but basic stout like beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Garrold (1140) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 1, 2013
Can from Bier Huis, Ossett. Not sure how a 7% beer brewed with chocolate and spices (which spices?) can end up so thin. Everything is in the aroma.
