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.

Coffee, chocolate and charred wood on the nose. Black as night with a brown head. Smooth, lightly creamy body but not thick at all. Lots more dark chocolate and dark coffee with some nice honey and molasses sweetness. Definitely bitter, but probably more from the roasted malt. Good strong alcohol balance to all of this. The flavors stick to the tongue and last a good long time.

spacecube (651) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 15, 2013
355ml can, pours black with small off white head. A Belgian stout. Dark chocolate malts balanced with dark dried raisin and blackberries and watery cheap cola. Finish is well balanced and slightly bitter. Pretty good.

foxo82 (645) - Tamworth (via Leicester), Staffordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 3, 2013
355 ml can from Cotteridge Wines (I think). One of my favourite breweries. Here goes... jet black - no reddish tint here. Smells sweet but not sickly - kind of an oaty, sweet cereal, like flapjack or Golden Grahams (love them) but with some marzipan and Baileys as well - really great aroma. Smooth feel with slight fizz at the end. The taste could be fuller and longer lasting, which is a slight disappointment on an otherwise great experience, but there’s dark chocolate and mild coffee malt here. Still one of my favourite breweries, even if this just falls short of greatness.

UncleKorm (644) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - FEB 5, 2014
Can poured a back hue w/ big fizzy tan head fully diminishing. Big chocolate aroma. Initial flavor is moderate sweet with a moderate bitter finish of short duration. Tastes are roasted malts, chocolate, bold roast coffee, cinnamon, clove, and a light heat of chipotle after the finish. Full bodied, soft carbonation, light syrupy mouthfeel, and light warmth in the finish.

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.

Twelve ounce can Whole Foods Whole Lotta Brews Brewfest, somewhat watery, all the flavor is at the very end. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a solid black with a foamy brown head and lacing. The aroma is light but with lots of cinnamon, chocolate, and some other spices. The flavor is chocolate and yeast notes up front with a slightly spicy backbone and finish over a smooth, medium body. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
