COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
No. 15, much like a certain fabled two-piece candy bar of our youth, rich, dark chocolate notes accented with aromatic toasted coconut. What would add depth and character to this already delicious combo, we wondered? The answer is time (6 months) well spent in the very best rum barrels available.

Brouwerij (918) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - SEP 5, 2013
Bottle. Pours a dark brown with rapidly settling tan head, no lacing. Aroma is rum, alcohol, and extremely sweet, hint of coconut. Flavor is very sweet, mild caramel, vanilla, with minimal rum and coconut flavor. Possibly the sweetest beer I have ever tasted. Fruity, dark, juicy finish and aftertaste. Rum character develops as it warms. Soft carbonation, full body, and smooth, sticky texture. A very intensely sweet beer, couldnít drink much of this.

Pours deep brown with almost magenta tinge. Slick on top, maybe some very small floaters. Nose of booze, rum, vanilla. Taste is hot booze, very sweet, finish of milk chocolate, rum, and a hint of toasted coconut. Really does taste like taking a bite of Mounds and doing a shot of rum. Split the bottle two ways for dessert, but 4 would have been better. Too sweet and hot for me.

12oz bottle shared with friends. Lots of coconut, rum and booze in the aroma. Drinks very easily though itís sort of hard to tell what style it should be called. Not dark enough for a stout, somewhere along the lines of an imperial brown or porter.

12oz bottle, big thanks to adnielsen. About 5 ounces in a snifter that had been sitting in my fridge after I quit on it the night prior following a huge tasting. Dark brown color, clear around the edges. No head or lace. Smells pretty awesome. Dark chocolate, big nuts. Moderate roast, light rum influence in the nose. At this point, completely flat, no shit. Big body, lightly chewy. More dry finish. Big sweet taste, light rum, some spice, big brown sugar. Bigger sweet taste, some noticeable sweet alcohol. Moderately spicy alcohol warmth, but for the 17%, itís in check. Pretty amazing. Nice light rum, but I enjoyed the rum character much more in Rumpkin. Much less sweet in that one, too. Maybe this is too desserty for me? Iím not really a dessert guy. The level of alcohol in this is really impressive, but I canít say the same for too much else about this. Much preferred the Uncle Jacob and the Rumpkin. Happy to have tried this, though.

lots of coconut on the nose and if you look some coconut left in the bottle. I liked this beer alot was a bit warm for my taste but really really good beer. the alcohol is present but not over whelming taste is chocolate and coconut with a ton of rum a bit of age could help this beer but fresh is nothing to scoff at

(12oz bottle thanks to jjfoodie) clear deep amber/ruby, excellent lacing. Nose of almond joy, milk chocolate, alcohol, big beer, fairly sweet, complex too. Taste of milk chocolate, toasty coconut, rum, barrel, sweet, alcoholic, really amazing flavors iíve never tasted in a beer.

JStax (2955) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - AUG 4, 2013
Bottle shared by drsilverworm. Pours a darker brown with no head, but there are some fatty looking globs floating on the top of the beer. The aroma is nutty, chocolate, and a lot of booze. Taste has a lot of booze to it with a warming alcohol. I get the coconut more as an afterthought lost finish.

Pours a brown color with an off white head. Big aromas of coconut and oak. Flavors of coconut with a well balanced oak, vanilla and bourbon flavor.

arminjewell (6150) - Farmington Hills, Michigan, USA - JUL 19, 2013
Pour out of 12 oz bottle, dark brownish black pour with thin tan head, aroma brought big notes of sugar, rum, toffee, some slight coconut, chocolate, roasted notes, more sweet sugary rum in there as well, with some vanilla. †Taste is a big sweet mix of rum, coconut, milk chocolate, and vanilla, mixing into slight roast, spice, hints of dark chocolate as well, finishing sweet, boozy. †Think this will get better over time.

Jesterdeal (1842) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - JUL 18, 2013
Aroma of dog food. Slight oak and cocoanut and chocolaye like a box of Samoas. Pours black with good carb but no head. Taste is coconut rum, oak, spiced rum, and brown sugar. Super sweet and very boozy. Treat this like a cordial.
