12 OZ can poured in a pint glass. It looked good, nice brown hue with a full creamy -looking head that faded fast. Didn't smell bad, I couldn't catch much of an aroma but I have a bad smeller. I must have gotten ahold of a defective can, because it tasted so bad I thought "this must be what diesel fuel would taste if you drank diesel fuel." Perhaps it doesn't travel well. Too bad, I like me a nice brown ale like Abita Turbodog. Better luck next time!

One of their limited releases.

Pours a dark brown with light brown highlights. 2-finger fluffy brown head that dissipates relatively quickly.

Aroma is sweet with roasted malts & chocolate.

Taste has some coffee, chocolate, roasted malts, marshmallow and some nuttiness. Quite nice.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied and cleansing.

Overall, a very nice beer. Glad they decided to can this one for a little while.

3.73/5  rDev +7.2%

Pours brown with good clarity and ruby highlights, small off white head reaches half a finger. Retention is rather poor as is the lacing.

Nutty and bready with a fine roasted aroma that dominates. Sweetness is slight and balanced. Hops are slighty grassy and herbal but are hidden beneath the malt.

Bready and nutty with a slight crystal malt sweetness, the roasted aroma thankfully does not translate into the flavor much. Hops bring some bright herbal balance with a mild bitterness and doughy aftertaste.

Drinkable beer, good body and alcohol nonexistent. Carbonation is very active and perhaps a bit too prickly for my liking.

A nice offering from Maui, a bright nutty brown ale that would do well for a Hawaiian beach outing. Less complexity and high drinkablility won't do it many favors on the scoreboards but I would reach for this one again.

Poured into a Dogfish Head pint glass. Pours a very dark brown, appearing opaque in the glass with a massive light tan head with good retention and lots of lacing. Nice aroma of toasted malt, nuts and hints of chocolate. Flavor is quite light toasted malt, mild cocoa and nuts, thin semi sweet finish with a hint of hops. Light to medium bodied. A major difference between the aroma of flavor in this one. The taste is very subdued from start to finish. It has all the pleasant brown ale flavors of the aroma, but rather thin. A pleasant, but light tasting brown ale.

On tap at Maui Brewing Company in Lahaina, HI.

Pours a clear brown with a foamy khaki head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Foamy swaths of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of toasted malt, caramel, and nutty aromas. Taste is much the same with caramel and nutty flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of roasty bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer that is tasty and quite easy to drink.
