rwgould (331) - Vancouver, British Columbia, - NOV 16, 2012
Pours a transparent dark golden orange, fine white head, lots of carbonation. Aroma: Really strong notes of vanilla and toffee, hints of rum. Smells really sweet; Not spicy at all. Palate: fairly thin bodied but not watery, fizzy, syrupy, slightly dry in the finish. Taste: very sweet, gets spicier closer to the finish.

spacecube (968) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 30, 2014
330ml in box, pours clear amber with a small white head, toffee caramel malt, oaky notes and rum, sticky molasses, balaned tidily with a long bitter finish with rum in the aftertaste. Lively carbonated with a light body, thin slighly creamy texture and a crisp finish. Good.

berkshirejohn (4673) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 28, 2014
33cl bottle from Aldi, Bracknell. ABV 7.4% A bright golden amber colour with a rapidlly dissipating head and lots of carbonation; rather subdued aroma - some vanilla wood but little else; the taste is a good balance of rum, light spice and vanilla from the wood; the finish has a lingering toasty sweetness. Rather pleasant and well-balanced.

weordie (97) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - NOV 13, 2014
Pours a dark brown but with very little, short lived head. Aroma of spiced rum and vanilla. Quite a lot of carbonation. Taste is strong of spiced rum and coke.

JanLaursen (3227) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 21, 2014
Flaske. Ravfarvet, klar, medium, boblende off-white skum med kort holdbarhed. Træ, acetone, rom, karamel, figner. Sød, maltet, woody, krydret - a la mørk røget kardemomme, allehånde, nelliker. I like ’dis.

[5544-20130627] 341mL clear bottle. Rum candied fruit grain aroma. Clear, amber orange body with a quick foamy white head. Sweet rum barrel grains flavour. Medium body. Initially unpleasant but grew on me. (7/3/6/3/14) 3.3

ghendrix (121) - Cardiff, WALES - AUG 27, 2014
Bottle at home. Pours light orange-brown, slightly hazy, few fingers of white head that disappears quickly, no lacing. Looks like a barley wine in the glass. Aromas of toffee, demerara sugar, caramelised apple - all fairly faint on the nose however. Taste is not nearly as sweet as you’d expect with those aroma notes. Light flavours and medium body. It’s all a bit so-so. Very drinkable, but not very noteworthy.

magpieken (69) - - AUG 13, 2014
330ml bottle. Pale amber colour. Large, frothy, off white head quickly disappeared and left no lacing. Dark fruit and caramel aroma. Pleasantly sweet taste. Medium body, smooth texture and a gentle alcoholic warmth. Would go down well as a nightcap.
