3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Ok, this one didn’t come in the box... in fact, was a B1G1 at Consumers, but hey, I’m always looking for a bargain, so I grabbed 4 bottles, knowing it was a deal. I was just a tad bit disappointed with the first bottle. The flavor was nice, the pour was dark... I just, I don’t know... expected more. Maybe I’ve been drinking too many heavier Belgians... this just seemed kind of lacking. But I really think that’s just where my palate is right now and not the quality of the beer. I look forward to enjoying the rest of my bargain.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
330ml bottle pours a clear deep copper red. Really good nose, warm light oak and dark fruits. I think the oak works well but it is too sweet, maybe the oak was meant to balance the sweetness as little hop character comes through. Pretty decent but too sweet.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
I’ve been avoiding these over-priced clear bottles, and now I found it on draft!. Cloudy brown, nose is lightly oaky, flavor big on rum, oak, soft malts, only enough hop for balance, no particular hop aromatics. Fairly sweet, strong. Its a bit too much rum/oak for a relatively light bodied beer.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 17/20
Rubinrot im Teko, kaum Schaum, aber bei dem Stil zu verzeihen. In der Nase Rum, leicht Kirsche. Im Trunk wird der Malzcharakter schön vom Rum umspült - sehr rund und abgestimmt. Leichte Süße. Im Abgang etwas Holz und Alkohol. Könnte hintenweg intensiver sein. Insgesamt mit hoher Drinkability.

0.33L bottle. Rum essence and caramel aroma. Clear brown color with small hat on top. Toffee, bread, wood, light whiskey, some spice flavors. Not for me.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Not a great amber, quite boring. Pours a nice clear amber with a thin white head. Not much of any smell, a bit fruity. Taste is boring, a bit of malt and a bit of rum, with a malt liquor finish. Had in the bottle.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: MAY 10, 2015 Lots of clear aromas. Rum twist works perfectly with beers own aroma. Smooth taste for strong beer. One if the better ones for me.

Bottle. Brownish color. Flavour of toasted oak and caramel. Flavour of caramel, some banana and toasted oak. I find the toasted oak too forward.

Bottle- pours a copper red in color with medium foam head. Nose, taste and finish are all influenced with traditional rum tastes that offer a nice balance to the bitterness and hops of the beer.
