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

flavor: firstly slightly acidic, develops nicely to raisins with very pleasant long finish based on oak, vanilla and toffee notes
mouthfeel: for 6.8 abv light to medium-bodied, low-saturated, drinkable, smooth and butterish, slightly warming
In general a good and uncommon interesting beer at very reasonable price (12 DKK). Positive surprise!
