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.

crackedmachine (473) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 24, 2013
Pours a thick, opaque, black with a large, lasting, foamy brown-sugar head. Aroma of cinnamon, mild chile, subtle dark chocolate. Flavor of roasted malt, chocolate dialed up a bit, cinnamon quite subtle, and Belgian yeast contributing only subtly. The mix of flavors is really nice, nothing overpowers. Excellent.

adster (437) - HUNGARY - SEP 18, 2014
Különleges dobozából éjfekete színű ital csordogál elő, melyen sárgás, bézs színű, rövid életű hab képződik, majd belgákra jellemző, édes beütésű aszalt paradicsom illata száll fel, így téve világossá számunkra a különlegesség netovábbjának perceken belüli megtestesülését. A feliratokon jelzett, édeskés jellegű fűszerezettség kevésbé, a paprika pikáns zamatai már annál inkább kirajzolódnak a végízében, amit egy közepesen szénsavas, telt keretbe ágyazott test érzete előz meg. Könnyedén csúszik, nem a végletek itala, mégis kellőképpen exkluzív, speciális karakter.

junon (424) - Honolulu, Hawaii, USA - FEB 27, 2013
This what i describe as a’’flat cocacola’’ beer. Looks beautiful. Pretty tight on the nose. Taste is however packed with flavour. Distinct charred notes. Smooth finish with a slight bitterness. Medium bodied.

wildbeercat (353) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - JUN 16, 2013
12 fl oz / 355mL can into a pint glass. Served cold. Aroma: There is a lot of chocolate and roasted malt going on here. Some nice coffee ground smell. A tiny bit of smoke, even. Really smells quite good. Appearance: This is a handsome, handsome brew. Completely opaque black/dark brown, with a solid, frothy dark brown head. Not tan, not off-white, but dark, dark brown. Handsome. Taste: Good golly miss molly there is a lot of flavor here. Lots of chocolate up front on the arrival. Transitions to some spice and smoke, and ends on smoky pepper. The can mentions something about cinnamon--maybe it’s in there, but it doesn’t stand out to me really. The chipotle pepper is definitely there though. Great stuff! Palate: Full bodied. Moderate-long finish. Overall: What a nice find! The contrast between the bittersweet chocolate and the roasty smoky pepper is something you have to try!

Doofgoblin (335) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAY 6, 2013
UPDATED: AUG 25, 2013 Pours dark with a brownish head that dissipates after a bit. The carbonation propels the aroma of chocolate, toasted malts, and spices. The taste is similar: chocolate, toasted malts, spices, cinnamon, and faintly coffee. Palate is somewhat thinner than I expected giving it a "dry stout" kind of feel. Overall, it’s easy drinking and the aroma and taste upfront are interesting/different.

fhoublon (316) - Lachine, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 7, 2014
Dégustée (canette) le 30 mai 2013 au Mondial de la Bičre 2013 ŕ Montréal (D9C4KPPPi). Bičre noire. Col crémeux beige trčs foncé, mince et persistant. Odeur de café crčme. Trčs douce, peu sucrée, assez amčre. Alcool bien caché. Saveur de café, de chocolat un peu amer. Un peu trop léger pour une stout, aurait pu ętre plus corsée et un peu plus sucrée.

DMLINAZ (303) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - JUN 23, 2013
Interesting blend of chocolate and chipotle. Wonderful aroma; better than the flavor. Crazy foamy at first. From a can into a pint/stout glass.

jehoesefat (299) - Poway, California, USA - MAY 24, 2013
Smells a little chocolaty, a little like coffee, but kind of funky too, I think from the pepper. Pours deep black, can’t see at all through it even when held up to the sun. Tastes a little smoky, bitter finish, overall kind of weak.
