ElCapitan22 (71) - Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 28, 2014
Pours a slightly hazy orange/amber color with next to no lacing. Smells of toffee and butterscotch. Tastes of spiced rum. A nice drink that definitely reminds you of rum, but not a memorable drink.

jefcon (1391) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - AUG 12, 2014
Lengthy palate for such a light tasting beer. Lots of boozy alcohol, and I can’t say the rum is special in this context or a particularly beer-friendly spirit. It’s raisiny, plummy, and overpowering. Still, the beer is meant to showcase this technique, and it is successful at showing what golden ale in rum barrels should aspire to be.

solidfunk (4012) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - JUL 9, 2014
Lots of malt and some boozy perfume like yeast hear. Pours cloudy golden without much head or lacing. Finishes sweet and lightly bitter. Cones together pretty well. Tap at Max’s.

HeadyDE (505) - Delaware, USA - JUN 12, 2014
2012 bottle pour..solid pop from cap...light amber caramel color..slight 1/2 finger creamy head rests atop..plenty of carbonation here..nose is interesting with booze, wood, vanilla, and what seems like rum soaked butterscotch..mouthfeel is medium bodied to start with no real alcohol heat at first..taste is smooth and complex and the rum is nicely done here..the alcohol legs return with a warming lingering presence..an enjoyable sipper and another solid barrel offering from EVO..has qualities of various styles in play here..

pushkinwow (2014) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 4, 2014
2013 bottle from Capones. Pale copper with a faint head that fades to nothing. Sweet caramel, rum, mild oak, vanilla, booze, mild carbonation and moderate body, some green apple on the finish with some yeast, more booze and lots of brown sugar, caramel and some toffee.

Bottle - 750mL crowned. Courtesy of my friend Noel. Spring 2012 vintage. Bottle 679 of 1200. Hazy amber with a short white head. Aroma is fruity and sweet with yeast, light boozy notes and bread dough. Taste is sourdough bread, rum notes, fruit notes, sweet malt, soft wood notes, light vanilla and hints of banana. Body is medium with a soft creamy carbonation. Ends with more fruit notes, sweet malt, booze, rum notes, bread, light wood notes and hints of vanilla.

Sammy (8644) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 4, 2014
A Malt liquor variety strong ale, with some coconut from the wood ageing. Someone sweetish, in a word alright. Not complex.

Damico (2579) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 7, 2013
Pours mostly clear copper with no head. Aroma brings raw yeast almost like dough with some malty perfume notes at the end. The flavor brings some malty fruits, creamy toffee really smooth on the tongue from the rum.
