3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
330 ml brown bottle with a BB date of Feb. 2016.
Clear deep amber body with a decent head.
The aroma and flavor both clearly say "aging in rum barrels". I don’t think rum barrls were actually used. Instead, the wood and vanilla tones simply suggest rum. In any case, this has some complexity, good balance, and a very smooth body. The high ABV is fairly well hidden although there is warming in the finish and afterwards. Carbonation seemed a tad low.
O: a fine ale that’s readily recommended.
