Franckg (137) - Quebec, CANADA - JAN 17, 2015
Vieillie 1 an en bouteille. Une belle robe ambrée et limpide accompagnés d’arômes de chêne, d’alcool et de sucre à glacer. On y trouve aussi des traces de fruits séchés. En bouche, les arômes sucrés prennent le dessus rapidement. Suivent les effluves de rhum brun doux et des fruits séchés qui rapellent les raisins, bananes et figues. La finale s’étire longuement en dévoilant les subtilités du vieillissement en barriques de rhum où les amateurs de ce nectar en retrouveront les saveurs épicés et sucrés. La texture est mielleuse et liquoreuse et moyennement effervescente. Les saveurs sont bien balancées et se bonifient plus le liquide se réchauffe.

MrHangover (2871) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JAN 17, 2015
Bottle @ THT January. Pours a clear amber beer with a big off white head on top. Aroma of spicy rum, loads of malts, light chocolate and a touch of caramel. Flavor has some rum in there, also some sweet citric notes, tangerine and orange. Aftertaste is sweet and long, with a big malty base. Good stuff!

thornecb (4597) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 29, 2014
Pours deep clear amber into a snifter. White head with little retention recedes to mottle surface. Molasses, rum and oak aromas. Thick with sweet caramel and toffee upfront turning to mild molasses and rum in the warming finish.

Metalchopz (2454) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 30, 2014
Pours a slight hazy deep amber with a small warm cap, not much retention, but some head stays on the top, and around the ring. Fruity aromas with caramel and some light alcohol, creating some burnt caramel desert nose. The alcohol is well blended in the taste with some fruity malts and nice mild hop bitterness. The rum barrel does add to this beer and can be tasted. Goes down smoothly with a beautiful warming feel. This is a great sipper and recommended on the back of the bottle with a cigar, cheeses or chocolate.

GarnotingPete (777) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 29, 2014
Bière rousse, trouble et nappée d?une fine écume mousseuse marquant légèrement le verre. Un nez bien boisé où l?alcool, les cerises mûres, et le rhum se démarquent largement. Elle est modérément amère et peu sucrée. Elle est huileuse, peu effervescente, de corps solide et se termine en de longs arômes.
