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 years last canned seasonal, Aloha Baktun! The word aloha conveys both greeting and goodbye in the Hawaiian language and Baktun 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. Pours near black with a thin beige head. Medium roasted malts, dark chocolate, and faint hints of spices. Rich and fudgey, with hints of smoke as well. Good stuff.

JStax (2974) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - AUG 14, 2013
12 ounce can into a brandy snifter thanks to errl. Pours a dark brown with a tan head of foam. Very good retention. Aroma has dark bitter chocolate, some smoke, ginger, licorice, toast, and leather. Taste is more on the dark, roasty, bitter side. Long, dry finish that leaves a roasty note on the tongue that shows no sign of leaving quickly. Earthy. Nicely done.

Can from Utobeer drunk at home. Black beer thick tan head. Intense tarry choccy aroma. Its a drinkable stout. Good choc tar and intensity. Bit over fizzy maybe. Yep simple, choccy but very drinkable

5000 (6261) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - AUG 11, 2013
can:   Nearly black, thin sudsy beige head, little lacing.   Sweet roasted malt nose, some chocolate, perhaps even a little bit of pepper.   Sweet roastiness first, sweet pepper second, a touch of cinnamon last.   This is tasty!   Brings me back a little to when I had Morning Brunch, except that was twice the beer this is (sorry Maui).   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Roasty, chocolaty, with some minor pepper and even more minor cinnamon on the finish.   I bet this on Nitro would be fun!

AKDB (3) - Stafford, ENGLAND - AUG 9, 2013 does not count
caramel, chocolate, coffee, roasty, smoke, brown foam, black, light sweetness, medium bitterness, lightly sour, long finish, full body. Got this as a gift from my housemate who bought it from Euston Tap last weekend. Porters and Stouts are what I always look for in craft brews and this one was absolutely spot on. First time Ive ever heard of Maui Brewing Co. but theyve blown me away with this one. Very nearly my perfect ale.

ben4321 (3864) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - AUG 9, 2013
Location: Can from State Line, 8/9/13

Aroma: The nose is heavy spice and roasted malts, some coffee, chocolate, and a little fruit
Appearance: It pours a murky dark brown color with a small tan head that leaves mild lace
Flavor: The taste is roasty and smokey with lots of spice and some mild sweetness
Palate: The body is medium, it has plus carbonation, and a long tingly/spicy finish
Overall Impression: There were something about this one that worked really well for me and others that didnt work quite as well. The spice is almost overpowering, which detracts from the flavor a bit, but overall, it is still a solid brew.

UPDATED: AUG 5, 2013 Can at home, BOE, 04/08/13. Dark black with a frothy tan head. Nose is dark berry fruits, light roast, light spice. Taste comprises dark chocolate, cocoa nibs, sugars, earthy, light chilli notes, dark tangy fruits, ribena berries. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, tangy dark fruit finale. Solid enough stout - one Id return to.

ABUSEDGOAT (2363) - California, USA - JUL 29, 2013
Black pour, tan head, decent lacing and retention. Aroma is roasty with notes of chocolate, caramel. Medium bodied, rich roasted flavor. A barrel aged imperial version of this would be fun.

A truly unique and exceptionally fine tasting Stout from Maui Brew Co. Its a Belgian Stout inspired by ancient Mayan culture. That means there is chocolate and spices added. An interesting combination from a Hawaiian brewery.
