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.

Vaiz (3394) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - OCT 5, 2013
Can from Beverages4less, San Diego. Thanks Freddy! Black pour, tan head. Aroma is of roasted malts, quite spicy, some chocolate, tobacco and slightly peppery. Flavor is bitter roasted, smooth and spicy. A hint of afterburning chilies, but very subtle. Solid stout, but less exciting that the description on the can made me think it would be.

Can at home from uto beer borough. Aroma is choc, crisp chalky dry Roasty and later there is pretty heavy soap aroma. Lightish body. Flavour is earthy dirt, smooth roast and dry chalky finish. Some bramble berry esters. Pretty good.

JohnRMurdoch (3317) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - SEP 8, 2013
12oz can from Good Spirits Co. Almost black, big dark beige head. Toasted chocolate malt aroma. Toasted chilli & coffee flavour. Bitter hot chilli aftertaste. OK but not really my thing.

bytemesis (3312) - 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.

Elwood (3311) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - MAY 28, 2013
Serving: 12 oz. can from State Line Liquors. It pours black with slight ruddy highlights and a slim brown head. The nose is a odd mix of chipotle chilies, green peppers, and baker’s chocolate. The flavors follow suit with a slight earthiness coming in and a little mix of spices. Medium bodied with average carbonation a peppery finish. A little odd for my taste.

BelgianBeerGal (3201) - Panama City, Florida, USA - NOV 9, 2013
Flagstaff can. Pitch black pour with a huge brown head. Big aroma of dark chocolate, coffee, and cayenne pepper. Flavor has some dark roasted malt and making chocolate with a spicy, warming finish. Good.

JStax (3074) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - AUG 14, 2013
12 ounce can into a brandy snifter thanks to errl. Pours a dark brown with a tan head of foam. Very good retention. Aroma has dark bitter chocolate, some smoke, ginger, licorice, toast, and leather. Taste is more on the dark, roasty, bitter side. Long, dry finish that leaves a roasty note on the tongue that shows no sign of leaving quickly. Earthy. Nicely done.

Beersiveknown (3072) - NORTHERN IRELAND - OCT 28, 2013
Can from ales by mail
Ruby tinged super dark brown with lacing of tan head. Chocolate, cranberry and cardamom on the nose. Medium bodied, spiky carbonation, initially chili spices, then head berries and lip tingling heat in the finish. Reminds of Mexican hot chocolate. Spice builds. Really enjoyable but a bit thin perhaps.

mile (3033) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 12, 2013
Can. Very dark brown - almost black, small to average and fully diminishing light brown head. Moderate, malty and sweetish aroma, some roasted malt and light coffee, faint spiciness (pepper, cinnamon). Body is light to medium, malty and sweetish flavor, light caramel and light roasted malt. Finish is average, malty and lightly sweetish, some roasted malt and light coffee, faint spiciness. Bit watery stout with roastiness and faint spiciness/pepper.

AshtonMcCobb (2679) - 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.
