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.

Spiced chocolatey aroma. Black color with a tan head that settles down to wisps. Excellent roast-chocolate flavor with a very light touch of the cinnamon and heat of the chilies in the finish at the back of the throat. Delicious

DesertDevil (489) - Arizona, USA - APR 4, 2013
12-oz. can poured into a Maui Brewing shaker. Appearance is that of strong coffee with a half-finger, very uniform dark beige head. Muddled nose of cinnamon, baker’s chocolate, cloves, prunes, and a touch of chili. Flavor is bittersweet at first with chocolate, cinnamon, and agave syrup notes before a faint ester note emerges. The chipotle comes through on the aftertaste with a moderate tongue-prickling heat, but it doesn’t lend much spice to the taste. Silky texture, light body, and low carbonation with a spicy finish that carries for quite a while. It’s worth trying but doesn’t surpass very many of the other similar chocolate-chili stouts I’ve tried.

12 ounce can from Beer Run. Pours a dark brown color with a large foamy brown head. Decent head retention. Aroma of chocolate, roast, spice, warm savory notes. The taste is roasted malts, chocolate, tart fruits, spicy finish. Medium bodied. Nice.

Chocolatey with a hint of cinnamon but I get no hint of chipotle. What’s with all these beers I’ve had lately promising assorted chilies but showing little or no sign of them? Tasty but not worth the price of admission.
