3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from the LCBO. Pours a dark brown/ copper/ red. with a whitish head that recedes to a ring, some nice spotty lacing left behind as well. Aroma initially had this scent of cola like coke, there is also caramelized malts. Taste is very sweet malt and leaves a slight bit of bite on the tongue. Really nice brew.

UPDATED: DEC 12, 2011 In bottle; aroma of fruit for sure with a hint of rum and maybe honey. Body was quite mild but the taste was similar to the aroma ... fruit, rum, honey. Very easy drinking.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Strong rum aroma. Flavour is full-bodied with lots of fruit. Good, but didn’t actually taste much like beer.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours amber/brown. NO HEAD AT all, which seems weird considering other reviews. Aroma is plums, raisins, and caramelized malts. Taste is plums, vanilla, malts, and... oak barrels, for a lack of a better word. Watery/oily mouthfeel. Short finale, really. A bit boozy. Not bad, but this one is utterly unspectacular.
