Poured like black sewage water. Aromas of baby shit. Taste was nothing but cloyingly sweet dumpster juice. Finished hot and sweet with a burn. Not good, my brothers. Not good.

Big aroma of rum and some coconut. Taste is similar but a bit close to cloyingly sweet, good with the small pour.

12 fl oz bottle. Bottled June/04/2013. Courtesy of deyholla. Thanks Derek!
Black colour with a small red hue and no head. Little white things floating in the glass.
Mild sourness, toasted malt and dark fruits in the aroma. The flavour is very strong maltiness. Extremely sweet. Incredibly sweet.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
bottle thanks to Ratman197. pours a dark brown / light black with floating specs of coconut. some carbonation bubbles up upon pouring but quickly dissipates. sweet nose with layers of rum, chocolate, dark sugar, alcohol and light coconut. certain aspects of the aroma are hidden by the sugars and alcohol. very sweet throughout with really nice layers of chocolate, coconut, caramel and rum. tastes like a desert / candy bar. very warming on the finish as the alcohol is evident. soft carbonation with a very creamy body. excellent flavor profile from start to finish.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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, couldn’t drink much of this.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
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 it’s 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.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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%, it’s 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? I’m not really a dessert guy. The level of alcohol in this is really impressive, but I can’t 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
