11.2 oz bottle fizzy white head no lacing smells like sugary sweet but definitely rum notes. Taste like brown sugar with vary little rum but all in all a good beer would drink it again

One of the best from I&G according to me...but that doesn’t say much. Not a big fan of their beers. But this one really has that rum finish that I suppose they were looking for. Rum and ale in aroma and taste, but maybe the rum taste is a little to clear? It feels almost like you’ve tried to make your ale stronger by pouring some rum into it.

"Better than I thought given the hot and miss nature (imho) of rum barreled beers. Really nice aroma of whiskey notes, rum, vanilla, a nice maltiness. The flavor is nice...starts out really nice, becomes a little cloying by the end. Body is nice - strong enough but not overdone. I’ll get these all again for some future mass I & G tasting.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
The body has a beautiful deep reddish amber color with good clarity. On top of this beer there is a small creamy off white head. This small covering soon fades to a thin ring of slick lacing. There is a delicate sweet grain and bready base with mellow vanilla, woody oak, and caramel. On a light thin palate I get a nice light bready and sweet grain character. Inside of it are delicate hints of the caramel and oak with notes of vanilla and spicy sweet rum. On the back end there is a light kiss of herbal hop bitterness. It is smooth lightly carbonated and watery on the tongue.
