4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draft sample. Poured clear reddish brown color with an average frothy brown head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy chocolate malt, dark fruit and rum alcohol aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Moderate to heavy complex dark sweet flavor with a medium to heavy dark sweet rum finish of moderate to long duration. This is a better version standout

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Small pour at the Jackie O’s 7th Anniversary Extravaganza. Opaque brown pour with a medium tan head. Aroma of malt, caramel candy, spice and rum. Malty flavor with rum, chocolate and caramel before a roasty finish. Very nice.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured on draft. Pours a darker, hazy brown color with a thin, beige head of foam. The aroma is heavy with rum, but that nice nutty note from the base beer still comes through nicely. Taste is rum booziness with a lot of sweetness. Heavy on the palate. Another Brick Kiln homerun.
