Bottle to snifter. Thick and oily. Lovely nose of rum barrel aging. Started out fantastic but as it warmed it definitely got a little tart. Shouldn’t have waited so long to drink as it’s definitely started to turn but still pretty good.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: AUG 23, 2015 Bottle to glass. Black with tan head. Aroma is chocolate with some spiciness. More complex than the base alongside . Taste is a tad tangy, not the chocolate bomb the base is. It’s light bodied and the coating on my mouth is a tad off. I don’t get the spicey warmth from the rum. Not my favorite.

375 mL bottle shared by Spencer. The pour is a medium to dark black with a thin ring of darker tan head and no real lace to be found. The aroma is really sweet. There is a nice booziness here the roast takes a back seat as does the discernible walnut aspect. The flavor is good. There is a nice sweetness and a good roast that is overshadowed by the sweet rum. There is a little barrel but the rum sweetness dominates. The mouth feel is thin and watery. There is minimal carbonation and a slick quick fading aftertaste. It’s sweet with a touch of walnut and a sweet booze out the back. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Received as an extra in a trade. Thanks AMCimpi! This is a very unique beer that I find difficult to rate. Pours a deep brown to black color with a thin creamy light brown head. Aroma is sweet, black licorice, roasted malts, rum, nutty. Sweet and nutty in the flavor. Thick and creamy mouthfeel. Overall, a very nice beer.
