Bottle on offer at Tesco. Rum taste is dominant, especially the smell. Tastes like a beer with a shot of rum in it, but probably better. Ok but would not buy at full price

Klar colafarget med fint hvitt skum. Kjenner godt eikefatene og rom i lukten sammen med en snodig duft av smør (ufrisk). Eik i smaken sammen med en tam cuba libre. gir meg en billig rusbrus følelse.

Pours a copper colour with a creamy head. The aroma is dominated by rum. The taste is rather sweet with notes of toffee, vanilla, spices but mostly rum. Some bitterness, but the finish is mostly rum. A sweetish strong ale which is not unpleasant, but rather one dimensional.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Potent woody rum aroma. Sweet with rounded mouth-feel and medium body. Fruity with lots of vanilla and some sugar. The barrel flavor dominates the beer, which is probably good as I’m not fond of the base beer. Finishes with powerful rum flavor rather than bitterness

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a slightly ruby brown with about half a finger of head. Raisin and brown sugar with some syrup to the nose. A white raisin and brown sugar taste that ends with a molasses aftertaste. Lighter than I’d expect from being barrel aged, but pretty good.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from bottle. A nice aroma of rum and vanilla. Mostly clear amber with minimal white head. Has a light sweet taste. Light bodied and oily texture. Has a nice aroma and appearance but the palate leaves something to be desired.
