Tap sample. Pours clear dark brown color with an average frothy brown head that was lasting with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy toasted dark chocolate, coffee and dark rum aroma. Medium to full body with a thick smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy toasted sweet malt and rum flavor with a medium to heavy sweet finish of long duration. This is a standout porter.

Strong aroma of bourbon, oak and dark fruit. Taste is very smooth like a good scotch, lots of barrel flavor, cherry, rum and brandy.. Very smooth palate with an enjoyable burn.

Draft to 8 oz snifter at Eccentric Cafe. Looks good; a dark and fairly opaque cola with off-white lacing. Smells good too; rum first and dark malt second. Tastes like it smells with a solid mouthfeel. Rummy, but good stuff!

If you like rum, youíll love this beer. The rum over-powers the smell and taste of the porter. You do get a hint of raisin though

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.

VEry strong rum aspect to this one, it isnít harsh but it really does an overtake of the flavor profile.

Silphium (3167) - 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.

phaleslu (6335) - 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.

Dark walnut brown to black pour with a small amount of offwhite head. Smells like sour wild ale and red wine, like sangria. Nise nose. Soft carbonation, wine-y mouthfeel, clean finish with just a touch of alcohol heat. Taste is definite rum and what seems like bourbon barrel aged-ness, carmel and vanilla. Tastes a lot like rum, not my favorite but unique.
