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.

boFNjackson (4200) - Portland, Oregon, USA - FEB 17, 2013
Can @ The BeerMongers... Poured thick black with an easy forming, light brown head. This gave off a tin can, metallic tasted in both the nose and initial flavor. Some of the most metallic I have ever experienced out of a can. As it warmed this faded, thankfully. Mostly chocolate in here. Even a hint of cinnamon. The chipotle seemed absent, maybe added some smoked notes, but hardly any spice or flavoring. The Belgian yeast also didn’t affect the flavor much, perhaps just gave it a thinner body, which allowed the roast and dark chocolate notes to dominate.

Geiserich (4157) - Linz, AUSTRIA - OCT 20, 2013
Can: Very intensive dark chocolate and cacao aroma with light notes of chilies. Black color and a quickly diminishing brown head. Flavor is malty, roasty, light sweet with a following, very intensive cacao and hocolate flavor. Light spicy with decent sharpness of the chilies. Finish is very roasty but not to bitter with notes of cacao powder and chilies. Very tasty and harmonic.

FlacoAlto (4152) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - AUG 21, 2013
A steady pour into my Sierra Nevada IPA glass produces a four finger thick, richly browned, dark tan colored head. The beer is an opaque, quite black color. The aroma has a spicy, fruity, but significantly roasted character to it; mixes of clove, burnt prune, dark raisin notes, hints of cardamom, sweet cinnamon, earthy spice notes, rich fruity dark chocolate notes, and a spicy, slightly vegetal, dark fruit character.

Ample roasted dark malt notes, rich dark chocolate notes, and a chewy dark grain character are intertwined with a spicy, piquant, earthy chili like character that infuses this beer nicely without actually being overly spicy. Touches of lingering heat in the finish add some soft chili character. There is not quite as much fruit character as in the nose, but a fair amount of clove like character accentuates dark prune notes, roasted raisin notes, some tart dark plum notes, and perhaps even some burnt tamarind like flavors. The carbonation is quite prickly and effervescent, but the dark malt acidity somehow tempers it a bit, and the body is quite light and definitely quaffable; the body is quite a bit lighter than one fermented with typical American yeast. This has a big roasted character that dominates, but still integrates quite well, with all the other flavor notes in this beer; touches of full city roasted coffee, burnt dark malt character, burnt whole grain toast, and blackened molasses notes.

Not bad actually, more tasty than I was expecting, and the chili character is quite well integrated; this gets bonus points for how well the chili character is used here.

MrHangover (4026) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - AUG 24, 2013
Can @ Dean’s Birthday tasting, courtesy of zer0. Pours a very dark, almost black beer with a small biege head on top. Faint aroma of licorice, chocolate and Belgian yeastiness. Flavour is medium sweet, light alcoholic and malty. Short finish and a quite watery body. Decent.
