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.

355 ml can.
Pours pitch black color with a medium sized, rapidly dissipating head. Aroma of hops, chocolate, roasted malts and some caramel. Flavor of roasted malts, cocoa, dark chocolate and some mild fruity and vanilla notes. Low carbonation, roasty and malty palate. Very nice.

Danyel (1048) - Colorado, USA - NOV 10, 2014
Can. Aroma is very strong if milk chocolate, cinnamon, very sweet, a touch of roast . Taste is sweet, a tad bitter finish- kind like drinking chocolate milk. Would make a fantastic beer float. Overall, good.

adster (432) - HUNGARY - SEP 18, 2014
Különleges dobozából éjfekete színű ital csordogál elő, melyen sárgás, bézs színű, rövid életű hab képződik, majd belgákra jellemző, édes beütésű aszalt paradicsom illata száll fel, így téve világossá számunkra a különlegesség netovábbjának perceken belüli megtestesülését. A feliratokon jelzett, édeskés jellegű fűszerezettség kevésbé, a paprika pikáns zamatai már annál inkább kirajzolódnak a végízében, amit egy közepesen szénsavas, telt keretbe ágyazott test érzete előz meg. Könnyedén csúszik, nem a végletek itala, mégis kellőképpen exkluzív, speciális karakter.

A really nice looking well made stout. Roasted malts abound with hints of spice and yeast. A little chocolate on the palate. full body and flavor. Not seeing the low scores. It was quite good if a little different. I definitely appreciate the quality "

TXBadger (1488) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUN 5, 2014
Pours a dark brown almost black color with tan head. Malt on the nose, a little cocoa but not much; follows onto the palate. Finishes with just a little heat from the chiles. Not their best offering.

DiarmaidBHK (3521) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 19, 2014
Can from state line Liquors.pours black with a half inch of khaki foam. Has a bit of peppery spice on the nose. Fairly malty on the tongue. Finishes clean. Not really feeling this one.

fhoublon (316) - Lachine, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 7, 2014
Dégustée (canette) le 30 mai 2013 au Mondial de la Bičre 2013 ŕ Montréal (D9C4KPPPi). Bičre noire. Col crémeux beige trčs foncé, mince et persistant. Odeur de café crčme. Trčs douce, peu sucrée, assez amčre. Alcool bien caché. Saveur de café, de chocolat un peu amer. Un peu trop léger pour une stout, aurait pu ętre plus corsée et un peu plus sucrée.

fiulijn (15060) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 1, 2014
Can from Darby’s Liquor Store, Vancouver
Black color with brown compact head. Aroma of dark chocolate and cocoa nibs, then roasted malt, and some vanilla. The mouthfeel is dry and thinner than one would expect; the roasted malt and dark chocolate flavor is decent, with a very light chili/spicy touch, but also some disapproved salty liquorice in the end.
Nothing exciting.

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.
