Finally. After many months of searching, I have finally found my elusive white elephant. I was worried about the rumored "infection issues", so when I finally found one at the vintage cellar, I was a little hesitant to buy more than one bottle. The very dark near black pour with creamy ring of brown head is appealing. But despite a nose of rum and chocolate, the flavor is completely dominated by tart black cherry juice. However, despite this seeming ’flaw’, this beer is quite delicious. It almost reminds me of bells cherry stout. A bit thin on the palate, still a quite delicious brew.

12 oz. bottle shared by Tmoney99. Pours very dark brown with a small beige head. The aroma is roasted dark malts, light rum barrel notes, dark chocolate, and coffee with cream. The flavor is chewy, dark roasted malts, caramelized malts, dark chocolate, the barrel notes are light except for some boozy flashes. Full bodied, chewy; creamy and smooth. There is nothing that stands out as special with this, especially when comparing it to other less expensive less hyped stouts. The main negative is the lack of aroma, but the flavor doesn’t pop either.

Draft during CBC Chicago. Pours a near black with a fine fizzy darker head. Aroma is quite roasty, bit of berries, and warming rum, I like it. Flavor is dark chocolate with a big boozy rummy finish, the beer seems to be very nice, the rum doesn’t, light bit of sugary fruitiness that I like, maybe a bit from the rum. Creamy body with fizzy light carbonation, would be nice without that boozy edge.
