kbutler1 (1372) - Minnesota, USA - OCT 30, 2012
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.

ej (880) - Hauglandshella, NORWAY - NOV 26, 2014
Bottle from 2011 shared with BBGTC. Pours a menacing black producing a small, very dark tanned head. Aroma is marvellous.. Rich roasted malts, hints of coffee, allspice and chocolate. Faint liquorice notes as well. Taste is well balanced, roasty and semi sweet dark fruits /malts. Some bitter coffee / burnt grains. Some soy-sauce sourness, leather and slightly oxidized notes. Body is full, thick and oily texture and soft co2 levels. Awesome.

48FanInCali (782) - California, USA - NOV 25, 2014
2011 bomber - super thick black pour with a thin head and not a lick of retention. Nose is heavy coffee, roast, and some chocolate. Taste follows the nose with some molasses and light sweetness. Booze has mellowed out some. Thick and oily on the palate. Good stuff.

kraddel (4244) - some beerplace, BELGIUM - SEP 29, 2014
At BBF 2014 . Pours black, no real head . Smell is bourbon / wood . Taste is bit bitter , very chocolaty . Bit too heavy for it low carbonation, giving this the mouthfeel of flat , thick juice ( not something I like in beer ) but the other aspects are very nice

HopRedHead (397) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - SEP 25, 2014
Bottle from Mane Liquor Erotic Affairs. Pours pitch black with a sticky, khaki head. Big aroma of raisins, spices, cinnamon, vanilla, butterscotch, brown sugar. Jingoes Moses. Flavours are similar, parading a lot more salted chocolate, rum spiciness with a touch of espresso on the finish. Super velvety body, oily on the palate. Twist my tit and call me Barry, fucking good!

maneliquor (3372) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - SEP 25, 2014
UPDATED: DEC 18, 2014 Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours pitch black with a fucking dark tan head. Nose has so much going for it - vanilla, dry cocoa, molasses, stewed dark fruits, brown sugar, spice and it’s very brandy forward stuff. Despite the overwhelming notes, everything is in perfect unison. The spice and apple brandy mingle unbelievably well. Taste is a balanced rollercoaster of flavours beginning with heavy raisin sweetness before dry cocoa nibs and vanilla come into play. The rum spiciness really rounds it off and adds something special to the finish. Sweet without being too viscous or oily. The finish just keeps changing and growing. It has a light astringent bitterness which melds with the vanilla pod-like sweetness and just stays and stays. The rum spice just keeps growing and it goes with this beer insanely well. Lacks a touch of creaminess on the body is probably my only qualm. The mild warmth you get from this is damn pleasing though. Absolutely incredible

HonusWagner (1680) - Florida, USA - AUG 10, 2014
Sweet, rum-soaked, kinda like chocolate ice cream and rum raisin ice cream were blended together. Pretty good flavors but not incredibly tasty and really tough to drink. Basically, an imperial stout that is very solid but nevertheless far from the pinnacle.

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.
