Bottle (22 oz). From cparles, thanks Chris! Hazy amber with a medium beige head and light/medium lacing. Aroma of rum, spices, boozy notes, caramel, sweetness and brown sugar. Taste is slight to moderately sweet and, unfortunately, sour/acidic (light, but disturbing) with rum, spices, caramel and alcohol. Medium but weak body. Low carbonation. Acidic. Nose is good, but the taste seems to be infected, or at least too acidic for the style. Weak.

Minderbinder (2470) - Qubec, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 15, 2013
Bottle 22oz. Pours black (or very dark brown) with low beige head. Aroma is of malt, sugar, dark fruits, alcohol. Taste is of malt, sugar, dark fruits, alcohol, very slight bitterness. Palate: Medium body. Overall: Good. Sweet and malty. Not cloying. Not an homerun though.

Bottle. Dark brown pour with no head. Aroma of rum, brown sugar, raisins, brown malt, caramel. Flavor is quite sweet, woody notes, annoyingly lightly sour again. The light tartness isnt too bad flavor-wise, but it really ruins the palate. Big malty beers that should have rich full palates have puny little thin, acrid malt water palates. This one retains some oilyness to the palate, but mostly because it is almost flat. Oh well.

Beerman6686 (5272) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 19, 2013
This poured a lighter brown with an off white head. Aroma was lots of rum, caramel, some dark fruits. Flavor were similar, rum was too strong like most of their rum barrel beers, but a solid barleywine behind it.

Draft sample during 7th Anny. Pours a murky brown color with a small creamy beige head. The aroma and flavor have rum soaked caramel, vanilla, wood, light toasted nuts, touch of roast, hints of earth with a touch of bitterness to the finish. Great sipper, finishes on the dry side. Probably less rum influence than the bourbon influence in the other.

Another chill courtesy tossed by phaleslu. Sweet plum. Brown sugar. Cola. Doughy rum. A bit big. Some booze. Okay fine.

More Loineshawn reception courtesy tosses, this one from Phaleslu.

Pours a dark reddish brown with a very small wispy head.

The aroma is certainly rummy, its got some nice chocolate & oak... a little bit of fresh cut wood.

The flavor is nicely spicy with some good toasty malt notes. The level of toffee & sweetness is nice but not excessive. The vanilla comes through very well as well.

22 oz bottle shared by phaleslu. Thanks, Peter! Pours a deep brownish dark pour, good hazy dark body and middle is dark, near opaque. Some brownish glow on the edges and bottom. A small frothy head is tannish, dies to a small ring and laces small. Aromas show gentle fruit, brown sugar, and spirit. A bit of vanilla, rum, gentle heat. Some toffee, toast, kiss of brown malt, earth meets caramel, a bit if cocoa. Firmer vanilla bean, toast, and gentle rum spirit gives a distinct feel. Initial is medium bodied, a touch more full with some decent girth. Toasty malts meet caramel, toffee. Some deadened Rum spirit, brown sugar and Tahitian vanilla. Middle is a bit more thin, some heat, and dark fruit. Gentle toasty carmelized element grows, some raisin, rum, vanilla, and oak. A bit hot, thinner. Backend is a bit toasty, carmelized. Brown malts and caramel show a bit more. Barrel still shows life but some heats starts to die out. Some toastiness, soap, earth. Some chestnut, brown malt presence. Finish is a bit toasty, dry, carmelized. Some growing oak in the finish, not as hot but the body definitely leaves a sticky carmelized presence. Nice beer. Good firm barrel still integrates well if a bit hot as we hit the middle. Nice.

22 oz. bottle, 2012 vintage, #107/216. Pours a hazy plum brown with a small beige ring for a head. Took shitty notes on this one. Rum barrel is more subdued than expected, but still offers plenty of warmth, sweetness, and dark fruit. Caramel, cola, toasted brown sugar, raisins, plums. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a rich, sweet mouthfeel that has some subtle warmth. Nice rum barrel treatment on this barley wine.
