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.

rougeau13 (2002) - Richmond, Texas, USA - APR 17, 2013
UPDATED: OCT 30, 2013 Almost black with a light brown head. Aroma of smoked chili peppers, anise, chocolate, and funky fruity yeast notes. Taste is woody with a little chocolate and full of chili pepper flavor without really being spicy. Medium bodied, lightly carbonated, and a touch dry. Everything about this is kind of mild, but there’s really no other complaint.

wyzzywyz22 (1961) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - FEB 6, 2014
Can, Cave, Glasgow. Poured a dark brown colour with with a medium tan head. Nose was chocolate, roast, cinnamon. Roasted malts, dark fruit, more choc, and spices present in the flavour. Quite lively carbonation. A little on the thin side for a stout. Drinkable and not without some character but ultimately a bit underwhelming.

Reid (1898) - Salem, Oregon, USA - FEB 22, 2013
12 oz can from "Lifesource" Salem. $2.49 Wonderful looking beer poured into my PBR goblet!. Black as night with a thick tan head creamy goodness. Cocoa,burnt malts and caramel nose..pleasing. Taste is semi dark chocolate, slightly smokey,roasted nuts and oats and a faint hot pepper..excellent stuff. Great palate..keeps my taste buds tingling and guessing! I really liked this one. I have had only 2 beers from this brewer and loved them both. Must try more.

LtDan (1784) - Los Angeles County, California, USA - JUL 7, 2013
Appearance: pours dark brown with a tan ring around the edges.

Aroma: Strong roast, dark chocolate. A little fresh wood and herbal hops.

Taste: Dark roast, black coffee mild herbal hops. Slight tartness in the finish.

Mouthfeel: Full bodied ,lively carbonation.

Overall: I am sad I didn’t pick up any of the chocolate, chilies and spices. For me, the roasted dark malt conquered my palate. I’m guessing they were subtle when fresh, and I didn’t crack this baby until March.

Had this once sometime last year...canned. Hint of chocolate on an otherwise sweet roasted nose. Flavors range from burnt coffee to dark chocolate to pepper to hints of spicy hops on the finish. Pretty good stuff.
