2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Dark copper. Holds a good head. Aroma of rum with a lot of sweetness. Rum and generic cola flavour. Seems to have a sour edge from the oak. Not beer and not good rum either. More disapointing with each sip.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
The clear bottle shows you that this beer looks decent enough. Aromas of wet wood, rum, and quince fruit. Sweet rummy palate with some pear and quince fruit that seems out of place, and not nearly enough malt structure to support any of this off-the-wall character. With a heartier malt presence this could be a completely different experience, but unfortunately as comes across as very imbalanced.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Brown beer with good sized off white head. Smells like rum
and coke. Sweet flavour with some rum notes. Quite bubbly and one dimensional.
A rummy tasting beer is all I got from this one.

2.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle purchased in Winnipeg, MB. I was really excited to see what this beer had to deliver considering their touting of the oak aging. The aroma was barely noticable, although the color was a nice amber brown. Overall flavor was ok, but I was really expecting a little more. If this beer had a stronger/more distinct flavor, I would have rated it higher. Rather, it seemed like a very good beer that someone watered down before bottling.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
330 ml bottle. Dark reddish brown colour, thin off-white head that leaves some lacing. Sweet, syrupy-malty aroma with oak, rum and alcohol. The flavour is sweet, with some roasted malts, plenty of rum and a warm alcoholic finish. A very nice and distinctive beer.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle 0,33 l. Dark red brown, lacy off white head. Nose is strongly rum with some syrup and glueish tones. Even straightforward booze. Flavor is sweet ale maltiness, some syrup and the rum is there with warming boozy alcohol. It’s got rum, but maybe a bit odd combo.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Nice dark amber, firm beige head. Buttery and alcoholic nose, rum, oak and syrupy spiciness. Strongly syrupy, herbal rummy flavor with raisins, malibu, little vanilla and warming alcohol. Smooth but light palate. Intetesting, but not that satisfying.
