4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Big nose of rum. Tan head that wouldn’t fade. Taste is big on the rum initially. Reminds me if the Rumpkin. Notes of plum, raisins, figs and chocolate on the palate. Glad I got to try it.

Pour on tap at the brewery, thick black pour with creamy caramel head, aroma brought notes of sweet dark fruits, rum, vanilla, coconut, hints of molasses, nice roast with some coffee, chocolate as well in there, touch of oak. Taste is a sweet mix of vanilla, rum, and molasses that is balanced fairly well, nice chocolate, coffee, roast, hints of pine and orange, touch of oak, finishing slightly bitter, sweet. Tasty.
