355 ml can.Scopey (16264) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 20, 2013
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.
Can from Hippo beers, Glasgow. It pours darkest brown with a small beige head. The nose is roasted malt, earth, coffee, salted caramel and dark chocolate. The taste is roasty, toast, coffee, cocoa, earth, mild acidity, light bitterness, light spice and oily with a dry, roasty finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Nice canned stout. Pretty drinkable. lusikka (7833) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 16, 2013
355 ml can.spacecube (1810) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 15, 2013
Pours a pitch black colour with a dark beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, strong smoked peppers, leather and lavender. Flavour of strong roasted malts, cherries, spices, smoked peppers, coffee, chocolate, mellow caramel sweetness and bitterness. Medium bodied, a bit thin mouthfeel and a very rich, dry, warming, malty and mellow finish. What a great complex stout without being overwhelming.
355ml can, pours black with small off white head. A Belgian stout. Dark chocolate malts balanced with dark dried raisin and blackberries and watery cheap cola. Finish is well balanced and slightly bitter. Pretty good.

Lots of sediment.
Poor head retention.
Initial reaction was better than final impression.
Probably handled poorly after leaving the brewery.

12oz can picked up at Wilburs in CO elihapa (1554) - Honolulu, Hawaii, USA - JUL 8, 2013
Pours dark brown with a medium sized tan head and some lacing. Aroma of roasted malts, dark chocolate, coffee and spices. Taste is roasty, grainy, dark chocolate, peppers, dry finish
A nice stout.
Maui Aloha Baktun 5/15/13 very handsome faux Polynesian can. Nose is Belgian yeasty notes, wheat, chocolate, and a blossomy fruitiness. Dry mouthfeel, almost chalky, with flavors that start with dusty chocolate and incorporate fruit and nut nougat bar. The cinnamon is there, but why? It seems to dry out the finish even more. Just a touch awkward. 3.1. LtDan (1808) - Los Angeles County, California, USA - JUL 7, 2013
Appearance: pours dark brown with a tan ring around the edges.jgb9348 (6583) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JUL 7, 2013
Aroma: Strong roast, dark chocolate. A little fresh wood and herbal hops.
Taste: Dark roast, black coffee mild herbal hops. Slight tartness in the finish.
Mouthfeel: Full bodied ,lively carbonation.
Overall: I am sad I didn’t pick up any of the chocolate, chilies and spices. For me, the roasted dark malt conquered my palate. I’m guessing they were subtle when fresh, and I didn’t crack this baby until March.
Deep dark brown coloured body with a violet glow and i’m guessing, a massive head - but given that the entire can bubbled out and exploded, I’m left with the remnants. Aroma of smoke, tons of roasted malt, a vanilla bomb and a bit of black pepper. Light to Medium-bodied; Assertive vanilla and grassy characteristic with a little sour note from yeast, a good dose of chocolate and some light burn at the end and hints of smoke. Aftertaste nice and complex, but showing less malt than I expected. Overall, probably would have been a nice beer - but given the explosion, a little less than stellar. I sampled this twelve ounce can, purchased from Whole Foods in Portland (Peal), Oregon on 12-April-2013 for US$2.99, held in a complete constant temperature (70degF) in dark (didn’t matter, it was in a can) location for the less than 3 months that this lasted, until it exploded the entire top off the can and the bottom puffed out big - crazy, I’ve only seen this happen to bottles. Sampled at home in Washington on 07-July-2013.
