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.

Beerenberger (1489) - Fischer, Texas, USA - MAY 5, 2013
Aroma of chocolate, and vegetables, with hints of dark roasted malts and coffee. Pours a solid blackish-brown with a long lasting khaki head and abundent fine lacing. The taste is dark chocolate, and roastiness, with hints of dark roasted coffee, pepper, and cinnamon. Medium body with moderate carbonation. A smooth mouthfeel. Overall, a very enjoyable and tasty brew.

GenDV138 (1474) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - FEB 22, 2014
From notes, consumed on 4/25/13. Can poured into a snifter. Pours black with a finger and a half of tan head. Aromas of clove, chocolate, ginger, cinnamon. Tasting notes of dark chocolate, roast, coffee, subtle chipotle and spices. Medium body with a semi-dry finish. Was expecting this to be a bit better but still solid.

Can. Pours a dark black pour with a foamy rapidly dissipating java colored head. Nose is malt with chocolate and cinnamon. Taste is rich chocolate, creamy with some peppery spice. Finishes on chocolate malty peppery notes, with moderate lingering. Nice. Quaff Score 8 / 10

TXBadger (1431) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUN 5, 2014
Pours a dark brown almost black color with tan head. Malt on the nose, a little cocoa but not much; follows onto the palate. Finishes with just a little heat from the chiles. Not their best offering.

JDBaker11058 (1322) - Maryland, USA - MAY 9, 2013
Appearance: pours a cola brown that turns purplish black in a snifter, with a tight but foamy yoohoo-colored head that reluctantly fades to a thick cap and decent lacing. Aroma: dark chocolate, hint of lactic tang, ancho chile heat, vanilla, and a whiff of oreo cookie. Taste: burnt black bread, ash, stone, a surprising hint of herb (cut grass?), then maybe some chocolate. Finish: dry, ashy, bitter, with a hint of black pepper. Notes:Palate was overly light, almost watery. It was really noticeable on first sip; when the beer crossed my lips it was almost as if there was no flavor at all, like drinking a slightly burnt mineral water. I was hoping it would get better, because the pour and nose were excellent. Unfortunately, this just absolutely fell apart once I started drinking it. Drain pour, dammit. Hoped for so much more.

Beaver (1315) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - APR 30, 2013
12 oz can. Pours inky black with a medium pillowy brown head that retains well and laces the glass.

The aroma is subdued - sweet and roasty chocolate malts and grains with some cinnamon.

The flavor is very off - cardboardy, mineral, vegetal malts with some roast and a hint of cinnamon and peppers. The mouthfeel is medium bodied and very watery.

Overall, I don’t know if I got a bad sample, but this was subdued and off. I really like the chocolate chili beers, but this didn’t have much to it.

WheatKing (1305) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 16, 2014
Can. Couldn’t get my mouth around the name so I just called it "Hakuna Matata". hope that’s ok. Pours black, tan head. Nose is licorice, spicy pepper, dark chocolate. Flavour has a bit of dusty coffee, choc, pepper comes through on the finish but not too spicy at all, smooth mouthfeel (which seems a given for all stouts poured from cans). Nice, these guys do non-traditional ingredients quite well imho.
