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.

radagast83 (7388) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - MAY 18, 2013
12oz can. Poured a dark black color with a small tan head. Aroma is roasted chocolates, dark malts, touch of dried fruits, pepper notes, cinnamon and a little cocoa. Flavor is roasted notes, malts, touch of light pepper heat in there, with cinnamon and a long lasting chocolate notes. Not nearly as enjoyable as I had hoped, but okay.

Ernest (7346) - 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.

bytemesis (6949) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - MAY 18, 2013
Can. Pours opaque black with a medium dark brown head and good lacing. Aroma is coffee, cigarettes, dark roasty malts, spices, cinnamon. Flavor is the same, with a touch of chili, but no real head. Light sweet, light bitter, light spicy finish. Medium body, bubbly carbonation, creamy mouthfeel. Not bad, not amazing.

5000 (6862) - 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!

tiong (6486) - Espoo, FINLAND - JAN 24, 2014
355ml can from Ales by Mail

Pours pitch black with a large thick foamy brown head. Aroma of roasty malts, spices, hints of ash, cocoa and dark chocolate. Taste is smooth, sweetish, slightly roasty and spicy with a touch of cocoa, cinnamon and yeast. Finish is smooth, sweetish and slightly ashy with hints of roastiness and spices. Decent, a bit unbalanced spicy stout.

Braudog (6377) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - OCT 8, 2013
Can. Nice muddy pour, deep and dark, with a thick tan head of foam. The aroma is also compelling, hinting at some spice and roast. This drinks with a nice character, rich and thick, but not overwhelmingly so. The base is definitely baking chocolate, but the peppers give it a nice little earthy swirl, too. Good stuff.
