On tap at CCB. Dark brown pour with a big off white head. Huge rum nose. All kinds of rum, booze, dark fruits, vanilla, oak, and chocolate malts. Surprisingly dry...

On draft at CCB. Pours a dark brown with a big off-white head. Nose is rum, vanilla, raisins, malt, some chocolate, and a bit of fruit. Flavor is similar with the rum and raisins in the front, the chocolate, malt, and vague fruit in the mid, and some sweet raisins and a hint of booze in the finish. The rum runs over some of the lactose and milk qualities of the milk porter- more a rum barrel beer than a milk porter. Still very enjoyable on its own merit. All in all a winner from the barrel program. Not a hint that this beer might be over 6-7% ABV.

Pours black with no head. Nose is huge booze, rum, chocolate, raisin, hints of dark cherries. Flavor is big alcohol, rum, rum and more rum, cocoa, sugar, sweet malts. A bit sweet, but very tasty.

Chipalsa (1310) - Florida, USA - JUL 23, 2011
On tap @ CCB. Pours a nice dark body, with a neat thick head. The aroma is pure rum, very spicy and rich in citrus notes with a hint of smokiness. The flavor is again, full of rum, but with a rich bitter dark chocolate undertone that envelopes the palate in a full hoppy (and chocolatey) flavor. Fantastic.

OmegaX (1276) - Florida, USA - JUL 23, 2011
Another big ass brew from Cigar City. Nose is pure chocolate, rum, candy, and rum. LOTS OF RUM. Poured black with little to no head or lacing. Taste was nice and sweet. Full of lactose, rum, prune, and alcohol. Intensely sweet and enjoyable. I could enjoy a glass of this everyday.

steelcitybrew (430) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JUL 23, 2011
Pours a dark brown with a small brown head. Not too much lacing. Aroma was booze, chocolate, lactose and malt. Taste was rum, chocolate, raisins and lactose. Very milky mouthfeel. This beer was great. I feel idf the booze calms down it could be world class

burg326 (3837) - Florida, USA - JUL 23, 2011
UPDATED: JUL 24, 2011 On tap at cigar city pours dark black with no head, and no lacing. Really good porter with tastes of chocolate, coffee, lactose and had a really good rum aroma and aftertaste that lingered on the palate.

Shaftie (218) - , Maryland, USA - JUL 23, 2011
Tap at CCB. This has to be a first run on those rum barrels, it’s very prominent; screams rum. Think this was at least 11% AVB...no lacing to speak of, head dissipates quickly. Vastly superior to the non-BA’d version. Get some.
