Bottle. Pours a dark inky black/brown color with a mocha tan head that collars around the glass. Big notes in the nose of dark fruit; dark cherry, raisin, and plum. The rum shows as well but pretty minimal. Heavy mouthfeel. Dark roast, molasses, and fruit notes all combine in this one. Decently balanced but a little dark fruit overboard for me. Overall, glad I tried it but I didn’t go back for a second pour.

Sampled at the RBSG 2014. It poured a black color with a tan head. The aroma was slightly boozy, with rum, brown sugar and some spices. The taste was of rum, brown sugar, raisins and cinnamon. Awesome.

DalzAle (1944) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - JUL 4, 2014
Bottle shared by Nater31176! Rich dark black pour, little carbonation and an aroma of sweet dark chocolate and some light booze. Flavor was nice mellow meld of slightly rummed up chocolate, just enough raisin to be noticeable and sweet milk sugar on the aftertaste. Solid.

Homer321 (1596) - Rock Ridge, Florida, USA - JUN 21, 2014
Shared at RBSG 2014. A ton of dark fruit and booze. Taste is sweet with a chocolate and raisin note. A ton of alcohol warning. Kind of harsh.

daleharshman (882) - San Diego, California, USA - JUN 20, 2014
Bomber (from original 2011 batch, I believe) shared at my house recently by my buddy Shem who has acquired a very nice stash of rare aged ales. Pours pitch black with only the thinnest layer of brown foam. AROMA of charred malts, smooth dark chocolate, hints of rum, and some spice. FLAVOR of semi-sweet chocolate (fudge brownie), nutty roasted malts, some dry cinnamon, smooth rum, and some dark fruit. There’s a nice balanced between the sweet and the roasty in the mount. Must confess that I could not help being a little disappointed on this one...the mere premise of this beer (imperial milk stout with raisins and rum-aged) had my mouth watering. So my hopes were too high...but this is still a very good beer. (242, 876)

Bottle. Pours black with a brown head. Aroma is roasted malt, coffee, plenty of dark fruits, lots of rum, oak. Taste is heavy sweet and bitter. Body is full, texture is thick oily, carbonation is soft. Finishes boozy and intense. Nicely integrated flavours.
