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.

GenDV138 (3537) - 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.

Great up front; thins out and dries out too much toward the finish. Chocolate flavors are on the weak side. Clove is a bit overdone. Chilies and cinnamon are nicely far in the background. I like the chocolate + chilies + cinnamon interplay, but I’m not so sure about the clove and the Belgian yeast. They just seem to be out of place and conflicting. Aside from all that, it’s a decent brew.

zacgillbanks (3347) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - SEP 27, 2013
Can from Coppers, Newcastle. This is an inky black beer that pours out of the can with a rapidly disappearing dark brown head. It has rich chocolate and spicy fruity flavours, earthy woody chilli notes with a sweet tart chocolate finish.

Elwood (3336) - 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.

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.
