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.

(12oz can) near black pour, dark tan fine bubbles around the edge. Nose of cinnamon, vanilla, medium rich chocolate, biscotti cookies, cream, very mild chili and cinnamon if you search for them. Fairly complex nose. Taste is a bit ashy, maybe from the chipotle peppers, light cinnamon, vanilla bean, chocolate malt, fairly spicy but well balanced. I think the palate and body itself are a bit thin, other than that, a pretty good stout.

TheBeerGod (5997) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - MAY 3, 2013
Can. Black pour with a tall, thick mocha colored head. Aroma is peppery spice, dark chocolate and roasted malt. Taste is peppers, dark chocolate, roasted malt, cocoa, soft cinnamon and chocolate milk. Body is medium but rather creamy and no real heat from the peppers. Ends with more pepper notes, chocolate cake, chocolate milk, soft cinnamon and roasted malt.

GenDV138 (5749) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - FEB 22, 2014
From notes, consumed on 4/25/13. Can poured into a snifter. Pours black with a finger and a half of tan head. Aromas of clove, chocolate, ginger, cinnamon. Tasting notes of dark chocolate, roast, coffee, subtle chipotle and spices. Medium body with a semi-dry finish. Was expecting this to be a bit better but still solid.

ben4321 (5646) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - AUG 9, 2013
Location: Can from State Line, 8/9/13

Aroma: The nose is heavy spice and roasted malts, some coffee, chocolate, and a little fruit
Appearance: It pours a murky dark brown color with a small tan head that leaves mild lace
Flavor: The taste is roasty and smokey with lots of spice and some mild sweetness
Palate: The body is medium, it has plus carbonation, and a long tingly/spicy finish
Overall Impression: There were something about this one that worked really well for me and other’s that didn’t work quite as well. The spice is almost overpowering, which detracts from the flavor a bit, but overall, it is still a solid brew.

jgb9348 (5616) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JUL 7, 2013
EXPLODED CAN!!! Deep dark brown coloured body with a violet glow and i’m guessing, a massive head - but given that the entire can bubbled out and exploded, I’m left with the remnants. Aroma of smoke, tons of roasted malt, a vanilla bomb and a bit of black pepper. Light to Medium-bodied; Assertive vanilla and grassy characteristic with a little sour note from yeast, a good dose of chocolate and some light burn at the end and hints of smoke. Aftertaste nice and complex, but showing less malt than I expected. Overall, probably would have been a nice beer - but given the explosion, a little less than stellar. I sampled this twelve ounce can, purchased from Whole Foods in Portland (Peal), Oregon on 12-April-2013 for US$2.99, held in a complete constant temperature (70degF) in dark (didn’t matter, it was in a can) location for the less than 3 months that this lasted, until it exploded the entire top off the can and the bottom puffed out big - crazy, I’ve only seen this happen to bottles. Sampled at home in Washington on 07-July-2013.

JohnnyJ (5370) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 22, 2013
Can. Dark reddish black pour, with a light tannish head and some weird sludge at the bottom. Chocolate, notes of dark fruit, roast, and anise. The chipotle and cinnamon are very light, barely noticeable. Ok

AshtonMcCobb (5170) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 5, 2013
355ml can thanks to unstablefable. Pours opaque black with a nice big crema head. The nose has something savoury and smoky but both of these are mellow, Maybe even aged game, hung meat, pastrami or something. The taste is big coffee and dark chocolate and there’s a long creamy mid palate to the end - nuts too. Overall, interesting beer.
