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.

Pours like syrup. Dark dark brown with a thick brown head. Smells like molasses with some chocolate. Delicious dark roasted chocolate. Has a spiciness similar to Mexican hot chocolate. Fairly thick creamy palate and heavy bodied.

Braudog (5902) - Traveling the USA, Missouri, USA - OCT 8, 2013
Can. Nice muddy pour, deep and dark, with a thick tan head of foam. The aroma is also compelling, hinting at some spice and roast. This drinks with a nice character, rich and thick, but not overwhelmingly so. The base is definitely baking chocolate, but the peppers give it a nice little earthy swirl, too. Good stuff.

Vaiz (3567) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - OCT 5, 2013
Can from Beverages4less, San Diego. Thanks Freddy! Black pour, tan head. Aroma is of roasted malts, quite spicy, some chocolate, tobacco and slightly peppery. Flavor is bitter roasted, smooth and spicy. A hint of afterburning chilies, but very subtle. Solid stout, but less exciting that the description on the can made me think it would be.

zacgillbanks (2553) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - SEP 27, 2013
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.

mensch (259) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - SEP 25, 2013
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 (3127) - 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.

Can: Poured black with a dark tan foamy head. Scents of bread, roasty, chocolate. Taste is muted chocolate. Not that good.
