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.

wyzzywyz22 (2108) - 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.

Can. Pours a dark black pour with a foamy rapidly dissipating java colored head. Nose is malt with chocolate and cinnamon. Taste is rich chocolate, creamy with some peppery spice. Finishes on chocolate malty peppery notes, with moderate lingering. Nice. Quaff Score 8 / 10

JDBaker11058 (1987) - Maryland, USA - MAY 9, 2013
Appearance: pours a cola brown that turns purplish black in a snifter, with a tight but foamy yoohoo-colored head that reluctantly fades to a thick cap and decent lacing. Aroma: dark chocolate, hint of lactic tang, ancho chile heat, vanilla, and a whiff of oreo cookie. Taste: burnt black bread, ash, stone, a surprising hint of herb (cut grass?), then maybe some chocolate. Finish: dry, ashy, bitter, with a hint of black pepper. Notes:Palate was overly light, almost watery. It was really noticeable on first sip; when the beer crossed my lips it was almost as if there was no flavor at all, like drinking a slightly burnt mineral water. I was hoping it would get better, because the pour and nose were excellent. Unfortunately, this just absolutely fell apart once I started drinking it. Drain pour, dammit. Hoped for so much more.

zgaier (1917) - Coral Springs, Florida, USA - JAN 17, 2014
Pours pitch black with a brown head and aroma of spices and chocolate. Taste is sweet and creamy, nice milk chocolate, spices, roasted malt, liquorice, and light chilies leading to a spicy, chocolate finish. Solid stout

skoisirius (1908) - Earth, Washington, USA - MAY 24, 2013
Had this once sometime last year...canned. Hint of chocolate on an otherwise sweet roasted nose. Flavors range from burnt coffee to dark chocolate to pepper to hints of spicy hops on the finish. Pretty good stuff.

monk191 (1853) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 3, 2013
A very unique beer. Pours a brown-black with a tan head. Smell is strange. Spices and chipotle, but not particularly appetizing. Taste is better. Lots of chipotle and some cinnamon. Some spicy aftertaste. Taste is better then the smell, interesting, but couldn't have too much. Had in the can. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

LtDan (1806) - Los Angeles County, California, USA - JUL 7, 2013
Appearance: pours dark brown with a tan ring around the edges.

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.
