Sweet aroma and taste, particularly vanilla is present, but also bananas. This one really becomes too sweet for my palate. (Bottle)

Härlig bärnstensfärgad öl med söt rom avrundning. Trevlig beska men ändå ganska söt.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
330ml bottle@home. Mahogany body with some particles and a big light beige head. Sweet notes of vanilla and caramel, wood, bacon and ham to the nose. The taste is also quite sweet and also here vanilla is what first comes to mind, then cola, brown sugar, wood, pepper and prunes. I actually think it’s a tad too sweet and I also have to admit, I’m not a big rum lover...

Bottle. Fantastic contrast between the rum and light hops. Spicy. A good mature taste. Gave me a warm glow...

I’m truly astounded by the low ratings for this beer. This beer is much darker than it’s "original" counterpart and offers much more caramel flavour. However, just like the "original" it offers a strong vanilla flavour. There is a cinnamon-like spiciness on the nose and it washes down smoother than silk. All round fantastic Scottish beer which rivals many of the Brewdog creations.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
6.8% version. Dark wood colour with a small white head leaving tendrils of lacing. Medium body, slightly oily and a nice bit of carbonation - I think the suggestions of it being watery are a bit harsh. Aroma of spice and brown bread. Tastes of malt, rum and banana. Nice.

Not sure why I haven’t already posted this rating. Only comment was ’slight alcohol taste occasionally overwhelms but tends to be balance out at a more appropriate temperature’.
