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.

A truly unique and exceptionally fine tasting Stout from Maui Brew Co. It’s a Belgian Stout inspired by ancient Mayan culture. That means there is chocolate and spices added. An interesting combination from a Hawaiian brewery.

TXBadger (1219) - 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 (3347) - 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 (312) - Lachine, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 7, 2014
Dégustée (canette) le 30 mai 2013 au Mondial de la Bière 2013 à Montréal (D9C4KPPPi). Bière noire. Col crémeux beige très foncé, mince et persistant. Odeur de café crème. Très douce, peu sucrée, assez amère. Alcool bien caché. Saveur de café, de chocolat un peu amer. Un peu trop léger pour une stout, aurait pu être plus corsée et un peu plus sucrée.

fiulijn (14294) - 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.

ACHops (641) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 21, 2014
On tap @ Chuck’s CD. Pours inky black, thin brown head, slightly watery. Aroma is dark lightly charred malt, with rich umami and soy sauce notes. Taste is clean, darkly roasted malt with lighter but still rich notes of milk chocolate, cinnamon, soy sauce, toasted chipotles with just a hint of heat on the finish. Very easy drinking. Hard to expect much more flavor than this from a stout...

Sample from 33 cl. can. Pitch black with a dense, tanned head. Sweet and roasted aroma with coffee, caramel malts, fruits, spices and chocolate. Taste is bitter. Medium body with a creamy texture. Long lasting finish with roasted malts, coffee and chocolate. Very nice Porter.
