Maui Brewing Doppel Shot Double Bock
Visual: (cellared for 2 years). 4-pack aluminum cans. Pours clear copper orange, not much of a head, thick ringed retention, a great mix of fast and sporadic large and small bubble streams.

Nose: nutty cocoa roast coffee beans, slight barley malt background. (lvl-7)-pungency

Attack: silky-thicker-crisp

Mid-palate: liquid barley malt, alcohol detection, escalating (lvl-7-sweetness), bittersweet coldbrew coffee

Finish: nutty coffee malt exhale, cacao, subtle hop bitter, lengthy residual roasted bitter coffee.

Summary: Very good length of coffee flavour as well as depth, but slightly too much alcohol detection in the early mids that builds into a substantial alcohol hit by the late mids. Good drinkability and texture. Solid.

Maui Waimea Red
Tap at Cap Hop. Pours ruddy copper with a whitish head. Med body. Flavor is mildly roasty malt in an amber way. It’s somewhat fruity and a bit spicy. It certainly does not have an annoying chocolate aspect I find in some ambers. Fairly good.

Maui Brewing POG IPA
Tap at Cap Tap. Pours gold with a white head. Aroma is very floral and tropical. Med body at least. Flavor starts passionfruit and has some guava. Citrus too I think. Not too dry. Pleasantly bitter. Very nice indeed.

Maui Land of Rainbows
Tap at Cap Hop. Pours translucent/hazy gold with a foamy white head. Aroma of mild, mild sour and some tropical fruits. Maybe a touch of funk. Or not. Med body or so. Flavor is mildly fruity sour with a little funk and a fair amount of tropical fruits (like maybe pineapple and green melon) with something else I’m not sure about. Maybe a bit of malt/wheat in the aftertaste. Really very pleasing sour.

Draft. Pours deep orange amber with an off white head. A bit of a sweet malty base, mild floral notes, a little fruity sweetness, and a relatively balanced finish. Pretty good.

Maui Brewing Coconut Hiwa Porter
Pint glass as the consumption vessel at Pizza Luce Richfield. Cloudy, almost nitro looking appearance. Looks like a glass of chocolate milk. Nose comes to life slowly as it warms up. Chocolate, roasted malt, mild coconut if you really search for it. Great smooth and soft mouthfeel with a finish that lingers like you just had a glass of iced coffee. Taste brings roasty notes to the table as you would expect. Chocolate and coffee notes present. Hints of coconut make their presence felt with time to breathe. Overall a very solid porter. I would order again.

Maui Brewing Coconut Hiwa Porter
Pours a dark brown, thin ivory, almost beige head. Nose is heavy coffee roast, very bold, wood, almost char. Lots of coffee in this guy, nutty edges, a hair thin but the flavor kick makes up for it. Got some chocolate, didn't get the coconut really.

Maui Brewing Haleakala Sunryes
11/27/2016 -- from notes: 12oz can, from Dutch's. Canned 9/27/16. Hazy, chunky darker maber body. Bigger airy off-white head, some thicker lace. Bigger, spicier toasty rye malt. Kind of spicy, mild floral hop. Moderate sweet, light to moderate bitter. Mild slick texture. Full body. Kind of soft, lighter carbonation. Solid hoppy rye, more roggenbier than IPA.

Maui Bourbon Barrel Aged Saint Damien
Tap at Cap Tap. Pours dark brown with a tan head. Aroma of dark malt with hints of bourbon. Med + body. Flavor is dark malt, bourbon and some fruit that seems not all that dark. Think banana for sure. Maybe even clove. Wood comes along eventually. The bourbon isn’t super strong, but it’s very high quality IMHO. Really very nice.

Bomber. Pours black with tan head. Aroma is sweet chocolate and coconut. Taste is sweet chocolate coconut with a coffee like hint (in my opinion). It's pretty good but there are definitely better coconut porter/stout options here in CO that are less painful on the wallet.

Can from CraftShack. Pours dark ruddy copper with a slight beige head. Aroma is malty, darkly fruity and earthy. Med body or so. Seems a bit spicy. Definitely earthy. Maybe yeasty. Flavors aren't really strong individually, but the sum is significant. Think there's red berry or similar. Quite different, but interesting.

Tap at Cap Tap. Pours dark brown with a dark tan head. Aroma of somewhat earthy chocolate and smooth dark malt. Maybe a lactose touch. Maybe vanilla. Med + body. Flavor has an Earl Grey/bergamot impression at first with chocolate and vanilla following. Smooth roasty malt. Not too dry and moderately bitter in an earthy chocolate way. The bergamot thing is mysterious. Bar person confirmed it.

Maui Brewing Imperial CoCoNut PorTeR
750 ml bottle into snifter, no bottle dating. Pours opaque dark brown/black color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense and fluffy khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of big milk/dark chocolate, cocoa, toasted coconut, caramel, fudge, marshmallow, toffee, and dark/brown bread; with light notes of vanilla, cream, coffee, almonds, smoke, char, herbal, and roast/toasted earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of dark/roast/bready malt, coconut, cocoa nib, and light earthy hop notes; with great strength. Taste of huge milk/dark chocolate, cocoa, toasted coconut, caramel, fudge, marshmallow, toffee, and dark/brown bread; with light notes of vanilla, cream, coffee, almonds, smoke, char, herbal, and roast/toasted earthiness. Very mild herbal hop and roast/char bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of milk/dark chocolate, cocoa, toasted coconut, caramel, fudge, marshmallow, toffee, dark/brown bread, vanilla, cream, coffee, almonds, smoke, char, herbal, and roast/toasted earthiness on the finish for a while. Incredible complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/roast/bready malt, coconut, cocoa nib, and light earthy hop flavors; with an awesome roasted bitter/sweet balance; and zero cloying sweetness after the finish. Medium carbonation and medium-full body; with a very smooth, creamy, silky, velvety, and rich mouthfeel that is fantastic. Light sticky hops, chalky roast, and dryness. Zero warming alcohol for 9.4%. Overall this is an amazing flavored imperial porter! All around incredible complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/roast/bready malt, coconut, cocoa nib, and light earthy hop flavors; very smooth and dangerously easy to drink for the big ABV. I love the regular beer, but this is definitely a huge step up on richness. Super fudgey and dessert like, but never cloying or overly sweet. Perfect balance of coconut, cocoa nib, and base porter malt complexity. A really amazing offering.

Can from Corti Bros. Pours translucent gold with a white head. Aroma is tropically fruity, tho I get a light pear aspect as well. Med body or so. It's somewhat juicy, tropically fruity and no pear. Seems to layer some hop oil on my tongue. It's reasonably towards dry, quite hoppy, and decently bitter. Yet it really is what is currently typical in IPAs these days. Not groundbreaking. Very nice to drink. I'm starting to think that if tropical pear was a reality, this might be the expression.

Pours black, with a beautiful creamy tan head and some spotty lacing. Roasted aroma, with mild notes of coffee and chocolate. Mildly bitter, with an awesome mouthfeel, smooth and creamy, roasted malts, coffee, milk chocolate and coconut, mild and not overwhelming like in other coconut beers. Very nice, the only problem is that... it's too easy to drink and I only had one can!
