Smells insanely like rum, coffee, raisin. Dark, smooth, rum taste. Tastes boozy, raisin.

Pours a dark brown black with a tan head. Aroma is of rum, roasted malts, coco, molasses coffee. And caramel. Taste is similar with a lot of rum, coffee, and bakers coco. Has a medium body with a slightly wAtery mouthfeel and a dry finish. Overall, a pretty good rum barrel aged stout.

Served on tap at the Linda Vista location during SDBW 2011. The appearance is a rich black brown without much head. The aromas are rum with a faint roast malt profile. The flavors are rum and stout. I really like the rum profile but the barrel aging really made the beer flat and there wasn’t much done to bring it back. This leads to a flat rum and coke mouth and flavor. Still for such a small base beer a solid brew.
