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.

12 ounce can purchased from Total Wine in Rancho Cucamonga for $2.99. As I poured this out of the can into my tulip glass, it poured a dark black pour with a chestnut head. The aroma had initial black pepper, chocolate, and spicy peppers. Taste is initially bittersweet chocolate with just a hint of peppers. I don’t really get any cinnamon from this though. Medium lively carbonation with a dry finish. Overall very enjoyable.

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.

timfoolery (1125) - 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.

crajun (1084) - , 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.

UncleKorm (1084) - 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.

dreadnord (1013) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 23, 2013
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

cmonster (998) - 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.

Thisis12ptfont (997) - Los Angeles, CA, California, USA - APR 5, 2013
Strong herb filled aroma accompanied by chocolate. Black in color with a thin foam rim. Unique, well rounded flavors of cocoa, chile’s and black patent malt upfront. Undertones of herbs, cinnamon, brown sugar, toffee and other funky unidentifiable flavors. Overall, very complex flavor with strong alcohol and chocolate notes. I’d give this an A rating.
