3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
11.2oz Bottle. The pour was a clear dark mahogany brown with an average (1-2 finger) beige fizzy head that was fully diminishing with no lacing to speak of.
The aroma was quite intense with a toasted caramel malt and a sweet earthy yeast with notes of vanilla, rum, dark fruit (raisons and plums) and a light hint of toffee.
The taste was moderately sweet and malty with notes of caramel, vanilla and dark fruit throughout with a nice cask presence and a mild rum alcohol finish. The flavor lasted an average duration after the swallow with a mild boozy taste that faded slowly off the taste buds.
Mouthfeel was just below medium in body with a slight syrupy texture and a mildly soft carbonation.
Overall a fantastic tasting brew with a good sweet rum flavor and a strong malty presence...

Bottled. Pours clear amber with minimal creamy head. Aromas of caramel, butterscotch and raisin. Tastes medium sweet, no bitterness or sourness, long lingering sweet finish. Dessert like which is all very well and good since at 6.8% ABV needs to be a rare treat. Palate of medium body, sticky, average carbonation, long finish.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
I poured it from the bottle into a mug. It pours a deep amber to light brown color with a fluffy off-white head and little lacing. The aroma is woody with hints of dried fruit and booze. The wood aroma has an artificial quality. The taste is woody with toffee, dried fruit, and booze. It has a somewhat creamy mouth feel. As this warmed, it wasn’t great. This beer has some strong points to it. The wood aroma and taste is a little off though.

Aus der Flasche, im Glas getrunken. Dunkelbraune Farbe, cremefarbiger Schaum - etwa 1cm.
Malziger Geschmack mit einer feinen Rumnote und schöner buttrigkeit. Fast keine Bitterstoffe.
Was im Mund bleibt ist das buttrig-caramellige.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
330ml bbMAY2016, Netto DK. - thinnish, tinny caramel pour. That same artificial and young oaked vanilla pour as in the Original, slightly rummed up this time, with a hint of rumsoaked plum. Much like a diluted large batch, filtered bourbon. Simple refined caramel sugars in taste, a whiff of vanilla sugars and more Innis & Gunn polished furniture. Oddly inorganic,

5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Foam is fixed and renewable and the smell is sweet with small notes of oak. The taste is fantastic caramel notes, oak and distinct taste of good dark rum. Slightly ripened fruit, I also think it has, and it is clear at the same level as Oak Aged Beer.

Pite na wyjeździe z butelki. W zapachu migdały i nuta rumu. W smaku na początku słodkie, głównie migdały i toffi, potem pojawia się cierpka, drewnowata goryczka i nuta rumu.
