4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hawaiian chocolate and Hawaiian chilies, eh? Iím sold! The aroma alone is enough to make you submit effortlessly to its charm. Extremely dark brown in colorÖ well, letís just call it blackÖ this has the nose thatís like an all-star sports event. All the best players (at least for a stout). Thereís the smooth, slightly Belgianish, rich, sweet, classy chocolate stout character, the chili pepper meatiness, the great balance of spices and vegetables (cinnamon and chipotles), and the perfect level of sweetness Ė not too sweet, not too dry. Itís just rich and roasted enough in the nose to keep your attention, and not so much that it takes away from its subtleties.
Although itís very impressive in the mouth as well, itís not quite as fantastic as the experience in the nose. Still, itís wicked good. I love chipotle (or any chili pepper stout for that matter). The meatiness from the peppers is hard to beat and a perfect compliment to the rich, roasted character of the dark malts. As much of a fan of chipotle stouts as I am, this one doesnít let me down, and only facilitates my faith. Once you drink some of this some of the smokiness begins to present itselfÖ even in the nose, where it wasnít obvious at first. Thereís practically no burn to this. Almost all of the chipotle character is in the flavor, and itís issued very well. It finishes with a touch of cinnamon, pepper, and chocolate with almost no pronounced roasted malts. What is or may have been there are graciously making way to some great
Meaty and rich, but with a smoothness thanks to the Belgian yeast strain, this is, all-around, perfectly balanced in every way. Iím very impressed by this beer.

Had this once sometime last year...canned. Hint of chocolate on an otherwise sweet roasted nose. Flavors range from burnt coffee to dark chocolate to pepper to hints of spicy hops on the finish. Pretty good stuff.

A truly unique and exceptionally fine tasting Stout from Maui Brew Co. Itís a Belgian Stout inspired by ancient Mayan culture. That means there is chocolate and spices added. An interesting combination from a Hawaiian brewery.

Chocolatey with a hint of cinnamon but I get no hint of chipotle. Whatís with all these beers Iíve had lately promising assorted chilies but showing little or no sign of them? Tasty but not worth the price of admission.
