Bottle from 5 points. Better than the wine version but not as good as the original or bb versions. Good, but not great.

MesandSim (7119) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 29, 2010
A Sim rate (bottle from Olbutikken): Aromaís a meaty imperial stout alcohol hit. Thereís some rich coconut, almond, macadamia & rich dark chocolate. The rum really shines through - no doubt bringing out those nutty aromas. Thereís also a real sweetness to it. Itís dark fruits and sugar plum. Appearance : well, I hardly need to mention this as itís exactly what youíd expect. Pitch black with a biege head and lace. Flavour is an absolutely epic mix of dark chocolate, sweet coconut and sheer alcohol. Tasty and overwhelming all at once. Itís got a mammoth alcoholic finish which I canít decide if I love or not. Itís one hell of a beer, thatís for sure. But I would recommend sharing it with friends!

beernbourbon (1264) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - MAY 28, 2010
Bottle. Pour is very crisp black with a medium deep brown head that reduces down to a thin but dense layer of bubble-studded foam. Aroma is fairly reminiscent of the base beer with lots of roasted malt, coffee, milk chocolate, light ash, light molasses, and light alcohol. Maybe a touch of tartness as well. Flavor is also full of roasted malt, coffee, booze, and distant sweetness. The finish is a bit ashy with notes of espresso. This is a bit hotter than I expected it to be. Certainly a notable rum presence here. As i continue to sip, the alcohol burn mellows and more roasted malt and ash come through. The subtle tartness of the base beer is not very detectable. The flavor evolves a lot as the beer warms and breathes. You really need more than 1 or 2 sips to get the full flavor spectrum this beer has to offer. I liked it more with every sip.

GAManiac (1944) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAY 27, 2010
UPDATED: JUL 5, 2011 375mL bottle with orange foil. Pours, um, black with a big foamy cream-colored head that recedes to a thick cap and leaves some spotty lacing and legs along the sides. The aroma definitely has the sugary spiciness of the rum up front but is still really dominated by the heavily roasted black malts. There are dark fruits and some molasses as well. Taste starts with a heavy dose of the base beer - dark roasted malts, bakers chocolate, espresso and raisins. But the finish brings back the spiced rum flavors and leaves a burn after each sip. The mouthfeel is a little slicker than the base beer but is still medium to full bodied with moderate carbonation. The rum brings an interesting spiciness to the base beer which sets it apart from the bourbon a bit, though I still probably prefer the bourbon slightly. Still, both of the barrel versions so far have been good without overpowering the base.

38cl, new exclusive Danish brew Anno 2010, from De Hopduvel Gent, complex Stout, not too heavy, balanced, hazy, small head, very good brew, but very expensive!

Rune (7349) - TromsÝ, NORWAY - MAY 23, 2010
375ml bottle bought at ōlbutikken and shared at my hotel room with Skinnyviking and KnutAlbert. Thanks to the Salvation Army for good drinking music played outside our window early on a Sunday. Pours a pitch black body under a steady, tan coloured head. Smell of roasted coffee. Peat-like taste of coffee, spices and ripe fruits. Smooth and dry in the mouth. Hard to spot the rum accent. Anyway, a delicious brew (Copenhagen, 09.05.2010).

potbeerjob (1343) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 22, 2010
Bottle. Black with very nice tan head. Aroma is roasted coffee, dark chocolates, sweet vanilla, light woody character, faint rum, medium booze. Taste brings out light fruity quality that dulls as beer warms, mostly roasted chocolates and espresso, syrupy booze burn on palate. Light rum quality, but not as much as most rum barreled imperial stouts. Light oaky. Oily roasted on tongue. Very good, wow. Best rum barrel iíve had yet.

Leighton (9838) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 20, 2010
Bottle at Blind Tiger, shared during Mikkelís visit. Opaque black pour, ruby highlights, with a thick, creamy beige head. Aroma holds tons of dark fruit and deeply roasted malts, with hints of hard alcohol. Ripe, sweet fruits predominate in the flavor - raisin, raspberry, strawberry, fig. Roasted malts impart strong chocolate and mild espresso notes. Full-bodied with light carbonation, quite warming. Rum comes in at the finish, a finish that is at once sweet and dry. A delicious beer, well rounded. The rum barrel aging really enhanced the layering of this beer.
