3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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. It’s a drinkable stout. Good choc tar and intensity. Bit over fizzy maybe. Yep simple, choccy but very drinkable

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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!

4.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
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 I’ve ever heard of Maui Brewing Co. but they’ve blown me away with this one. Very nearly my perfect ale.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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
There were something about this one that worked really well for me and other’s that didn’t work quite as well. The spice is almost overpowering, which detracts from the flavor a bit, but overall, it is still a solid brew.

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