A Malt liquor variety strong ale, with some coconut from the wood ageing. Someone sweetish, in a word alright. Not complex.

Damico (2350) - 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.

750ml bottle (2013, # 254 of 1500), shared by dave! Pours an unattractive dirty amber color with no head. Aroma of rum, sweet apple, caramel, and slight funk. Taste is also of sweet apple, caramel malt, cheap rum, and oak. Kinda on the flat side. Not a huge fan, but thanks for sharing dmac!

dmac (3742) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - NOV 27, 2013
750ml bottle from Capones. Poured an ugly mud brown with a very small spotty beige head. Aroma of apples, wet wood, wet grains, plastic, bad raisin and uncooked dough. Medium body with softer carbonation and a lingering aftertaste with a touch of light heat. Flavor is similar to the aroma with lots of wet wood, some apple skins, dough, bad raisins, touch nut shell. Meh, not worth the $18 price tag even knowing it came from a bottle shop that added a few dollars on to the overall price.

burg326 (3210) - Florida, USA - NOV 3, 2013
Poured a dirty blonde color from the bottle with aromas of toffee, light fruit, some rum, and hay. Flavors are the same, a nice rummy aftertaste, a solid beer overall, quite surprised for this beer.

djd07 (2912) - Houston, Texas, USA - OCT 21, 2013
Bottle as shown. Pours a cloudy yellow with small white head that diminishes quickly. The aroma is a strong oak and rum. Medium mouthfeel with a sweet fruit and caramel candy sugar, not much rum flavor. Decent

snoworsummer (1602) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - OCT 2, 2013
From a big bottle. Pours hazy medium copper brown with lots of particles floating around. Very little head. Very smooth with a light syrup feel. Tastes sweet with ever so slight hints of bitterness and alcohol. Creamy, butterscotch, honey, and raisin flavor. Medium carbonation. Smells like raisins and rum.

sonnycheeba (3042) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - OCT 2, 2013
2013 bottle. Pours hazy copper with fizzy beige head that quickly dissipates. Aroma is cereal and bread malts, light toffee, oak, rum, dates, faint orange peel, and some spicy hops. Flavor is sweet bready malts, some caramel, light rum, dark fruit esters, and faint hops; dry oak finish. Medium body and low carbonation.
