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.

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.

Black with a tan, lasting, beige lacy head. Smells of roast, chocolate, malt, and liquorish. Medium thin body. Tastes of thin roast, ash and a stonger dark roast chocolate finish,

Beaver (1774) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - APR 30, 2013
12 oz can. Pours inky black with a medium pillowy brown head that retains well and laces the glass.

The aroma is subdued - sweet and roasty chocolate malts and grains with some cinnamon.

The flavor is very off - cardboardy, mineral, vegetal malts with some roast and a hint of cinnamon and peppers. The mouthfeel is medium bodied and very watery.

Overall, I don’t know if I got a bad sample, but this was subdued and off. I really like the chocolate chili beers, but this didn’t have much to it.

Can. Aroma is chocolate with notes of chillies. Pours black with a short light brown head. Taste is chocolate with a hint of spice from the chillies. Finishes smooth with a bit of cinnamon. Well-balanced between the chocolate and chillies. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

"Belgian Stout" should really be a category here on RB. 12oz can picked up at Bier Thirty in Bown over the weekend... Poured into my HotD goblet. 1/2" dark brown head dies back very quickly leaving little in the way of a head or a cap... the brew is black. The nose is pretty full.. dark chocolate, light roast malt, some lesser cinnamon and something that I guess is chipotle.. slightly smokey and possibly chili’eque. Not much in the way of any thing contributed from any Belgian yeast... a bit of clovey phenols, but I could be confusing that for the cinnamon.. Dark malt/chocolate deliver the main palate punch... cinnamon is fighting to stay afloat, the chipotle has an even more difficult time.. the chili only shows a a minor smokiness. Body is a medium/light with a light carbonation and a light carbonation... sorta silky on the palate... Despite my above negatives, this is a pretty decent beer... It just needs more of everything in the aroma and flavor to take it to the next level.

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.

An absolutely beautiful dark chocolate pour with a big mocha head that leaves a perfect ring of lacing. The aroma is dark chocolate with the chipotle as a subtle undertone. The taste is dark chocolate with a little bit of a peppery kick in the finish. The flavor is slightly disappointing as I don’t detect any cinnamon but it’s pretty smooth at 7% and surprisingly drinkable! So close to being a phenomenal beer!

Danyel (1606) - 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.

Beerenberger (1605) - Fischer, Texas, USA - MAY 5, 2013
Aroma of chocolate, and vegetables, with hints of dark roasted malts and coffee. Pours a solid blackish-brown with a long lasting khaki head and abundent fine lacing. The taste is dark chocolate, and roastiness, with hints of dark roasted coffee, pepper, and cinnamon. Medium body with moderate carbonation. A smooth mouthfeel. Overall, a very enjoyable and tasty brew.
