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.

rosenbergh (7051) - Tampere, FINLAND - JAN 18, 2014
12 oz can. From alesbymail.co.uk.
Black colour with a small tan head. Roasted malt, berries, vinegar, mild sweetness and mild bitterness in the aroma. The flavour is roasted malt, mild vegetables, dark chocolate, mild bitterness and mild ashy dryness. Quite drinkable but I was expecting more chili flavour.

lusikka (6343) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 16, 2013
355 ml can.
Pours a pitch black colour with a dark beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, strong smoked peppers, leather and lavender. Flavour of strong roasted malts, cherries, spices, smoked peppers, coffee, chocolate, mellow caramel sweetness and bitterness. Medium bodied, a bit thin mouthfeel and a very rich, dry, warming, malty and mellow finish. What a great complex stout without being overwhelming.

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - AUG 11, 2013
can:   Nearly black, thin sudsy beige head, little lacing.   Sweet roasted malt nose, some chocolate, perhaps even a little bit of pepper.   Sweet roastiness first, sweet pepper second, a touch of cinnamon last.   This is tasty!   Brings me back a little to when I had Morning Brunch, except that was twice the beer this is (sorry Maui).   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Roasty, chocolaty, with some minor pepper and even more minor cinnamon on the finish.   I bet this on Nitro would be fun!

arminjewell (6293) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 7, 2013
Pour out of 12 oz can, dark black pour with thin tan head, aroma brought notes of lots of dark chocolate, spice, cinnamon, hints of slight chili, finishing fairly sweet, slight roast. Taste is a mix of spice, cinnamon, hints of roast, coffee notes, hints of dark chocolate, finishing sweet, slightly dry and bitter. Ok, the concept seemed better.

355 ml can.
Pours pitch black color with a medium sized, rapidly dissipating head. Aroma of hops, chocolate, roasted malts and some caramel. Flavor of roasted malts, cocoa, dark chocolate and some mild fruity and vanilla notes. Low carbonation, roasty and malty palate. Very nice.

Ernest (6262) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUN 27, 2013
Can. Head is initially average sized, frothy, brown, mostly diminishing. Body is black. Aroma is moderately malty (chocolate / cocoa powder, caramel, roasted grain/coffee), with notes of vanilla, smoke/char/ash, celery. Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery/syrupy texture, lively/fizzy carbonation, lightly alcoholic. A bit clumsy and cluttered, but ok. The spicing is fairly mild; this is a stout/porter first and foremost, thankfully...was worried this was going to be overly vegetal or cinnamon-like.

after4ever (6169) - Brier, Washington, USA - FEB 3, 2013
Draft at sb. Pours black with a loose creamy dark tan head. Mild sweet nose, mostly sweet milk chocolate. Creamy medium body with soft carb. Sweet smoky peppers show through the chocolate, cinnamon is dialed back. Interesting at a basic level, and easy to drink.

blipp (6148) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - AUG 20, 2013
Can. Pours near black with a thin beige head. Medium roasted malts, dark chocolate, and faint hints of spices. Rich and fudgey, with hints of smoke as well. Good stuff.

douglas88 (6126) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 15, 2013
12 ounce can. Pours a deep jet black color with a small beige head. A sweet nose of chocolate and some pepper. A nice flavor: some stout base here with roast and chocolate, light peppers, not really hot, vanilla, cinnamon, almost combines to taste a bit like pumpkin. Quite nice.
