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.

IndianaRed (2879) - Boise, Idaho, USA - DEC 28, 2013
From a can into a pint glass, Pretty much black, very nice dense light tan head. Toffee and dark roast aroma with milk chocolate notes. Mainly straight forward light moderate roast flavors. Light bodied and a touch metallic at the end. Doesn’t taste as big as %7.

Garrold (2613) - 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.

Beergeek23322 (2602) - Chesapeake, Virginia, USA - DEC 27, 2013
12/26/2013. From can. Black with a beige head. Roasted malt aromas with spices and chocolate. Flavors are rich, bitter, but with some acidity that throws it off balance.

dimenhetfield (2487) - , Florida, USA - JUL 23, 2013
12oz can poured into glass. This was a very nice stout, and out of a can which I’m always jazzed about. Would have like more chilies and cinnamon spice though, it was just too subtle for me.

ABUSEDGOAT (2416) - 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.

dnstone (2364) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - MAR 20, 2013
Spiced chocolatey aroma. Black color with a tan head that settles down to wisps. Excellent roast-chocolate flavor with a very light touch of the cinnamon and heat of the chilies in the finish at the back of the throat. Delicious

Deep black in color with mahogany head... Roasted malt, dark chocolate aroma... Flavor is rich and thick, chipotle chilies prevalent up front with cinnamon on the palate... Solid ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Chocolatey with a hint of cinnamon but I get no hint of chipotle. What’s with all these beers I’ve had lately promising assorted chilies but showing little or no sign of them? Tasty but not worth the price of admission.
