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.

timfoolery (1124) - California, USA - OCT 19, 2013
Taster at Whole Lotta Brews Going On at Whole Foods in Folsom. Aroma and flavor has a good amount of bittersweet chocolate and very light chili. Palate has great carbonation and overall mouthfeel. Nice beer.

Garrold (1063) - 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.

The pour is dark with a thin tan head. The nose is coffee, chocolate, roasted nuts, dark fruit. The taste is medium sweet And low bitter. A little on the bland side. The texture is smooth and creamy, body is medium and finish is medium. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

gendv138 (973) - 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.

cmonster (962) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 5, 2013
Can. Pours black with a large brown head. Moderate retention and no lace. Soft roasted aroma and flavor with a touch of chocolate. Minimal spice or chilies. Medium body, soft carbonation and a short finish. This came off flawed to me. Disappointing.

crajun (932) - , Texas, USA - JUN 17, 2013
high marks for aroma and appearance - aroma has many things - nice chocolate, coffee, maybe smoke or roasted. dark dark pour. palate is thin for style/ what aroma is like. too much carbonation in taste. this would be better with much lower carbonation - still good, slightly creamy - vanilla, with all of the aromas in taste. good brew with much happening.

Davhgbrew (925) - Coconut Creek, Florida, USA - DEC 21, 2013
Chocolate nose. Creamy tan head. Sips sweet chocolate. Middle has Chipotle pepper and sweetness, which to my surprise isn’t working well. Full body throughout. Milky cocoa in the finish.

gegwilson (917) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 22, 2013
Can in the Head of Steam, Durham. Black body with fading tan head. Huge chocolate coffee aroma. Vary dry and bitter with lots of coffee and dark chocolate and a burnt toast finish. Nice but lacking something.

Very tasty Belgian stout. Unique flavors that compliment the aromas. Let me turn down the thermostat and enjoy.
