mcberko (9753) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 29, 2014
330mL bottle at Brewdog Leeds, pours black with a tiny tan head. Aroma brings out shitloads of rum barrels that totally dominate everything. Flavour brings out lots of soy sauce that totally dominate everything, with secondary notes of rum. Man, this is a total soy sauce bomb. Interesting how a rum nose could be totally different on the palate. Decent, but strange.

Opaque black - brown beer, short bubbly tan head. Palate is airy and light and slight soft. Modest fine carbonation. Rich tangy dark malts, but not heavy at all. Clear rum and raisan and other tangy dark fruits. Some alcohol spice but it’s not a hot beer. Finishes light leaving a slight warm afterglow. Pretty good.

330 ml bottle pours black with a small head. Aroma is chocolate and coffee, roasted malt, dried fruit, caramel, smooth in the mouth, finish is pleasant but alcohol taste there. Good strong stout, not amazing.

Sample at Stockholm Beer and Whiskey Festival 2013. Opaque black liquid with minimal light tan head. Aroma of dried fruit, licorice, wood, spices, chocolate, roasted malt, ash and raw sugar. Taste is light sweet and light to medium bitter with notes of licorice, booze and chocolate. Medium to full bodied with low carbonation. Pretty good.

Christopsy (137) - SCOTLAND - MAR 5, 2014
Drank and noted 8 March 2013, The first thing you smell is RUM! A deep dark stout that then slaps you in the face with oak and rum. This one will be awsome once it ages at least a year and then the rum will mellow out a bit. I just hope I can find this one again in about a years time.
