This pours a thick rich engine oil black with coco colored foam.
There's a subtle hint of chipotle on the aroma. It's nuanced and rewarding as it emerged behind the lightly floral cocoa roast and the faintest whisper of smoke.
I get a delicate floral note which complements the roast cocoa and coffee notes I expected from a stout.
There's an understated chipotle kick and that faint touch of smoke as I finish, with an interesting minerality.
I might be the only one on the mainland who feels this way, but I enjoyed this beer immensely. A welcome surprise.

12oz can poured into a Chimay goblet.
A: Pitch black pour. Creamy beige head takes its time,but eventually settles to a thin cap. A delicate ring of lacing circles the glass.
S: Semi sweet dark chocolate, smoke and soot, faint whiffs of black pepper, dried chilis, and cinnamon. Not much 'pop' on the nose.
T: Smoke and soot up front. Bakers chocolate. Faint cinnamon. Flash of clove and some oily hops. The chipotle contribution is very downplayed, just the slightest hint of peppery warmth on the back end. Cola. Touch of candidate sugar fruitiness. Dry chocolatey and sooty finish with the slightest hint of chipotle heat.
M: Rather thin and light. Slight creaminess, but it lands on the watery side. Gentle scrubbing carbonation.
O: About as complex as a doorknob. Adjunct contributions are weak and uninspired, yeast character is seriously lacking, and the body is too thin and watery. A lot of bells and whistles on paper, but in the end this is an exceedingly average beer. Maui needs to go bigger and bolder all around with this one.

This beer looks great off the pour. Completely dark with a large brown head. Nose is roasted malts. Flavor brings a bit of the same with an almost fruity edge to things. Kind of like mellow blueberries, in a stout kind of way. Pleasant to drink and a nice stout. I like it.
