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.

12/26/2013. From can. Black with a beige head. Roasted malt aromas with spices and chocolate. Flavors are rich, bitter, but with some acidity that throws it off balance.

onceblind (4014) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JAN 9, 2014
Black pour with a thin kahki head. Nose is a bit spicy and chocolaty--not spicy like heat, but like earthy cinnamon and herbal tones, with some raw cocao nibbs and a bit of roast. The flavor is a bit light but the body is mostly full, good roasted barley tones with a mild chocolaty sweetness, ending with a touch of earthy notes and some cinnamon. Not too keen on it overall, it’s chocolaty but earthy-bitter.

the chili and cinnamon itself would be nice but somehow the combination with this stout creates a mix that isnt really that pleasant. TAste is a stout with a bit of extra but nothing special either. Still a nice beer.

boFNjackson (4127) - 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.

BMan1113VR (7854) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAR 11, 2013
Can. Black hued body with a large tan head that lasts. Aromas of dark fruit esters, plums, dates, vinous Belgian yeast, bready malt, leathery and floral with a moderatly strong chocolate presence and some earthy chipotle. Baked apples and chocolate muffins. Flavors are earthy, bready, dusty and roasty with mild pepper and stronger chocolate. Medium bodied with a roasty finish. A bit drier than expected. Medium carbonation.
