3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber from greens. An approachable subtle and smooth ba stout. The rum is very faint but adds a bit of sweetness. The stout is thick and creamy and a bit sweet. Rum is a touch in the aroma and the flavor comes through a little more as it warms.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
22 ounce bottle into snifter, bottled on 11/18/2013. Pours dense pitch black color with a 1-2 finger dense dark tan head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big dark chocolate, cocoa, caramel, roasted malt, toast, toffee, molasses, raisin, vanilla, oak, rum, dark bread, light smoke, and roasted earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/roasted malt, rum barrel, and light-moderate smoke notes; with good strength. Taste of big dark chocolate, cocoa, roasted malt, toast, dark bread, raisin, molasses, vanilla, oak, rum, light smoke, and roasted earthiness. Slight roasted bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of dark chocolate, cocoa, roasted malt, toast, dark bread, raisin, molasses, vanilla, oak, rum, light smoke, and roasted earthiness on the finish for a while. Very nice complexity and robustness of dark/roasted malt, rum barrel, and light-moderate smoke flavors; with a great malt/barrel flavor balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Light-medium carbonation and very full bodied; with a very creamy, slick, silky, and slightly chalky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is an excellent rum barrel aged imperial stout. All around great complexity and balance of dark/roasted malt, rum barrel, and light-moderate smoke flavors; and very smooth to sip on for the big ABV. A very enjoyable offering.
