Bottle share at Tribes Alehouse. Pour is dark brown with a small tan head. Aroma of rum, booze, and brown sugar. Flavor is similar with the rum barrel leading most of it. Boozy and sweet.

From notes. On tap at the Eccentric Cafť on June 13. The pour on this one is dark-ish, yet somewhat see-through with a reddish hue around the edges and no head or lacing. Whoa baby. The aroma is blasting with rum and behind that, maybe a hint of licorice and maybe a little barrel. Nothing distinct but that rum. The flavor is just as boozy. There is a little bit more of a caramel/licorice combo on the very front, but the back is hot and dominated by rum. The mouth feel is thin, really thin, and quite hot on the tongue. The aftertaste is all rum, and very hot and boozy. Whoa.

Hand bottle from FlandersNed. Thin very translucent brown, doesnít look like a porter. Nose is rum and some wood, some burnt caramel. Cola, rum, bit of paint thinner, super hot burning alcohol finish.

Brought this to fauxbab. Didnít like this, most people didnít. Not much rum. More caramel. Thin. Meh.

drsordr (1121) - Loveland, Ohio, USA - APR 5, 2014
Draft sample at FoBAB 2013 pours cola brown. Nose all rum and medicinal. Tastes like rubbing alcohol. Wow, didnít like this one. None of the underlying flavors of a porter to balance out the alcohol.

Silphium (3173) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - FEB 23, 2014
Draft, Roll out the Barrel Party at the Eccentric Cafe. Deep toffee brown body, thin to medium cream head with lacing. Spicy, butterscotchy rum nose; sharp and boozy. Body dominated by spiced rum with bready, caramely sweetness, brown sugar, and hints of grape. Harsh and cloying, unfortunately.

HonkeyBra (3422) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - NOV 18, 2013
Sampled at FoBAB2013. Pours a dark brown with a small tan head. Aroma of booze, rum, sugar, mild coconut and chocolate notes. Flavor is mostly entirely sweet rum notes, burnt sugar, coconut, and booze. The rum barrel is overpowering. If thatís your thing, so be it. Itís not my thing.

phaleslu (6608) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 18, 2013
Draft sample at FOBAB 2013. Pours a bright amber-brown with no head. My main note is RUM! Yeah, thatís not exactly subtle here. It overpowers everything. Some dark fruits, some barrel, some sweetness, but Iíd be foolish to try to give other tasting notes here. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a hot, coating mouthfeel. If you like rum, you might like this. If not, youíll hate it. I fall somewhere in the middle. Disappointed and not going to try it again. But itís not CIB-level bad.

Tap at fobab 13. Poured a dark brown with a beige head. Aroma was chemicals and lots o rum with mild roast. Flavor was astringent and loads of rum. No sign of a Baltic Porter underneath either. Really glad I didnít buy a 750 of this.
