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.

arminjewell (6178) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, 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 (4247) - 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 (1338) - 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.

MrHangover (2456) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - AUG 24, 2013
Can @ Dean’s Birthday tasting, courtesy of zer0. Pours a very dark, almost black beer with a small biege head on top. Faint aroma of licorice, chocolate and Belgian yeastiness. Flavour is medium sweet, light alcoholic and malty. Short finish and a quite watery body. Decent.

allmyvinyl (3371) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 24, 2013
Can from Appellation Wines, Comely Bank. Pours very dark brown with a big tan head, which goes quite quickly. In fact, the carbonation dissipates very fast. Chocolate, liquorice, smoke notes. No chilli heat on the taste, which is a good thing, but otherwise the beer I’ve been least impressed with from this brewery.

Black with a tan, lasting, beige lacy head. Smells of roast, chocolate, malt, and liquorish. Medium thin body. Tastes of thin roast, ash and a stonger dark roast chocolate finish,

Bottle at Dean’s Birthday Tasting, August 2013. Poured a deep mahogany with a glass hugging tan head. The aroma is creamy malt leading to a medium bitter flavour with some liqourice alcohol and citrus fruit on the watery but refreshing palate.
