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.

An absolutely beautiful dark chocolate pour with a big mocha head that leaves a perfect ring of lacing. The aroma is dark chocolate with the chipotle as a subtle undertone. The taste is dark chocolate with a little bit of a peppery kick in the finish. The flavor is slightly disappointing as I don’t detect any cinnamon but it’s pretty smooth at 7% and surprisingly drinkable! So close to being a phenomenal beer!

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

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.

cmonster (983) - 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.

spacecube (970) - 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.

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.

Brouwerij (942) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUN 29, 2013
Can. Pours a dark brown with quickly diminishing brown head, minimal lacing. Aroma is roasted malt, dark chocolate, slight smoke, mild chili and heat, hint of tobacco. Flavor is mild chili up front with a chocolate, fruity, mildly roasted finish. Quite sweet as usual. Moderate carbonation, medium body, and a smooth texture. The chilies and chocolate are an interesting combination, but it is too sweet to drink much of.

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

nealblind (914) - Seattle, Alabama, USA - APR 17, 2013
tan head that lingers. aroma of tart yeast, roasts, pepper and woody vegetation. Starts with flavor of coffee than goes into a subtle heat and finishes a tart lactic sour taste and chocolate aftertaste. Effervescent and light on the palate for a beer of it’s class definitely reminiscent of the Belgian Stout style. It’s much taster than other Belgian Stouts I’ve had. The spices and chocolate really help flesh out the flavor spectrum that exists between tart yeastiness and dark malt.

Nische (898) - Saltsjö-Boo, SWEDEN - DEC 4, 2013
Can. Pours dark brown. Aroma is liquorice, chocolate and some spiciness. Taste is medium bitter. Light bodied but still tasty.
