4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
On tap at Brewdog Camden, London. Pours a deep dark brown colour with a small beige head. Foam dissipates fairly quickly. Aroma is on the sweet side and extremely deep and complex. Booze, cooffee, toffee, caramel, wood, porto wine. Taste follows the nose: big cold complex sweet flavors. Vanilla, booze, caramel and coffee. Mouthfeel is medium to full, quite sticky, with soft carbonation. Overall, definitely great brew, even if I’d expect more bitter roasty notes coming out of a porter.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle shared at Brasserie 4:20. I was pleasantly surprised by this beer after looking at the ratings. Clear amber pour with a fleeting white head. Big rum nose. A little thin in the body with decent carbonation. Lots of caramel, spiced rum, some vanilla, malts, and just a hint of Dr. Pepper. Really this porter is very good...

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
17/04/2012 330ml bottle, shared by Federico & Edo (Faber) @ Brasserie 4:20. Thank you! Nera, impenetrabile, riflessi color caffé, schiuma beige-cappuccino, non molto abbondante. Al naso intense note di malti tostati, frutta secca, vaniglia, rum, alcol bene in evidenza. In bocca è un po’ troppo sbilanciata sul dolce ma mostra un sorprendente equilibrio. A tratti ricorda un vino fortificato, a tratti un liquore dolce. Nonostante il corpo importante si lascia bere bene. Gran bella birra!

Bottle from systembolaget. Chocolate, oak and sweet taste with a boozey rum finnish. A bit to thin and boozey for my taste but still nice to sip at.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Mane Liquor. A dark, almost opaque ruby to brown pour with a small yellow head which quickly disappears. Nose is loads of sweet caramel with a large hit of rum and dark/dried fruits. Reminds me a lot of something like rum ’n’ raisin ice cream. Taste is massive on the rum. Heavy sweetness and dark fruits which work very well together. Loads of heavy caramel flavours with liquorice on the finish. Mouth feel is slick reminding me of rum but seems to taper off a little quickly. Woody finish. Cool beer. Very rum forward but works together nicely

Pour dark, almost opaque brown, with a very small and fizzy, off.white head.
Aroma of roast, plums, dates, rum, wood, vanilla, caramel, toffee. Plenty of nice sweet rum on the nose.
Taste is quite sweet, with a tiny roasted finish. Round this up quite well.
Medium body, with a semi-flat carb.
I really like this rum flavor and aroma. Sweet and smooth.
