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.

tiong (3782) - Espoo, FINLAND - JAN 24, 2014
355ml can from Ales by Mail

Pours pitch black with a large thick foamy brown head. Aroma of roasty malts, spices, hints of ash, cocoa and dark chocolate. Taste is smooth, sweetish, slightly roasty and spicy with a touch of cocoa, cinnamon and yeast. Finish is smooth, sweetish and slightly ashy with hints of roastiness and spices. Decent, a bit unbalanced spicy stout.

wyzzywyz22 (1961) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - FEB 6, 2014
Can, Cave, Glasgow. Poured a dark brown colour with with a medium tan head. Nose was chocolate, roast, cinnamon. Roasted malts, dark fruit, more choc, and spices present in the flavour. Quite lively carbonation. A little on the thin side for a stout. Drinkable and not without some character but ultimately a bit underwhelming.

Elwood (3223) - 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.

Bottle at Dean’s Birthday Tasting, August 2013. Poured a deep mahogany with a glass hugging tan head. The aroma is creamy malt leading to a medium bitter flavour with some liqourice alcohol and citrus fruit on the watery but refreshing palate.
