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.

brokensail (9918) - Orange County, California, USA - MAR 11, 2013
Nearly black in color with a tan head. Watery aroma with a decent amount of roasted malt. Mild earthiness, coffee grounds, banana, and a touch of sweet fruit. I don’t really get any spice from the cinnamon or peppers. The flavor is acidic, earthy, and roasty. It’s also a bit watery. Some coffee, mild spice, chocolate, coffee, and banana. Pretty meh.

hopscotch (8529) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 5, 2013
Can... Murky dark brown ale with a small, fizzy, fleeting, khaki head. The nose is a lush marriage of vanilla and milk chocolate. Medium-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and soft carbonation. The flavor is full of carbonic roastiness, but is otherwise mostly bland. Finishes minerally and a touch acrid. Bottle courtesy of darkguardian!

NielsenRatings (8273) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - APR 13, 2013
Canned @ home picked up at 287 Liquor Fort Collins. Pours a clear, deep brown appearance with a brown head. Rich dark chocolate, mild veggie, chili pepper, mild anise, dark fruity aroma. Fairly high carbonation. Cinnamon, vanilla, chili pepper, plum, dark grape, chocolate flavor. I’m not a huge fan of Belgian stouts, but this is ok.
