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 Ė this yearís last canned seasonal, Aloha Bíakítun! The word aloha conveys both greeting and goodbye in the Hawaiian language and Bíakítun 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.

Can from Appellation Wines, Comely Bank. Pours very dark brown with a big tan head, which goes quite quickly. In fact, the carbonation dissipates very fast. Chocolate, liquorice, smoke notes. No chilli heat on the taste, which is a good thing, but otherwise the beer Iíve been least impressed with from this brewery.

lusikka (7624) - 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.

Tell me in a sentence, who you are?

Nobody, Iím nobody. Iím a tramp, a bum, a hobo. Iím a boxcar and a jug of wine - and a straight razor if you get too close to me

after4ever (7044) - 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.

Ernest (7025) - 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.

5000 (6599) - 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!

Bottle at Deanís Birthday Tasting, August 2013. Poured a deep mahogany with a glass hugging tan head. The aroma is creamy malt leading to a medium bitter flavour with some liqourice alcohol and citrus fruit on the watery but refreshing palate.
