Very dark and potent version of the classic oak aged beer. Can definitely taste the rum and molasses in amongst the smooth vanilla and toffee notes. But somehow not quite as good as the original.

This beer just didn’t do it for me. Not only that, I just don’t think it was that great. Poured a clear dark mahogany color with a decent white head with decent carbonation. Smell was very sweet with barrel notes. Fruity notes as well. Taste was very sweet, slight oak, vanilla and toffee. Too sweet, no hop. Clear bottles are bad as well. Don’t know how fresh this was as there is no date!

Bottle. Boozy, rummy aroma. Less than average carbonation. Dark brown color. Tastes like you combined a rum shot with a beer, like a boilermaker, except drinking them simultaneously. High ABV 7.4% Not my cup of tea.

(Bottle 33cl) Pours light brown with a dense quicky disappearing head. Aroma of Rum, cane sugar, bittering hops and alcohol, that blends to something that reminds me of danish blue cheese! Flavour of rum cane sugar some wood. I think the beer lacks some power to match the rum.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours with a nice dark amber color, with a slight beige head that quickly fades away. Has an aroma of hops, caramel and a little hint of rum. Tastes sweet of caramel with a small hint of rum. I think it needs a little more bittering hops to compensate for the sweetness. As it leaves the mouth with almost nothing.

Great dark ruby/mahagony color. Sweet upfront, but doesn’t last very long. For me, the flavor needs to be a little more intense, but overall
I like the concept.

To me this is barely classifies as beer.. If you’re a fan of aroma-beer, try it.
I’m just not a fan of putting foreign stuff into a brew and I swear by "Reinheitsgebot". I love my hops and my malt. Don’t try to make my beer taste like candy, lemonade, fruit or in this case rum. The head vanishes within seconds, the color is more like a watered down cola and the taste - well that’s always a personal matter, but it does taste of rum. I couldn’t finish the bottle.
