Thanks Barry, 2010 just as the title of the beer says. This was poured into a snifter. The appearance was a gentle dark brown color with a one finger white to off white foamy soft head. Once the head died off, there was a semi-thick speckled lacing pervading around the sides of the glass. The smell had a slight boozy ginger to cinnamon with a decent dark chocolate and a milk chocolate involving itself with a semi-light coffee. The taste was intriguing as it took all of those previously mentioned flavors and combined wonderfully. On the palate, this one sat about a medium on the body and I found myself sipping this for the most part. Sticky booziness smooths it’s way over my tongue and coerces me to luxuriously float in my recliner. Overall, wow, what a night it was when I had this. For being several years old, this one still had it’s power at you know what, this was really good.

Pours dark brown almost black with no head. Aroma of booze, roast and milk chocolate. Taste is chocolate, roast, cinnamon, nutmeg and rum. Very thin.

wedgie9 (1893) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - APR 25, 2014
Tasted on 4/25/14 from a capped 375mL bottle purchased at Sun Devil a while ago. Pours murky dark brown with a thick beige head that slowly recedes to thick, sticky lace. The nose is spiced with some caramel, chocolate, and dark bread malt with a very signature dark rum molasses, and an earthy basement yeast aroma. The flavor is a bit more chocolate with the same caramel, spices, lighter bread, and lighter molasses rum with some heat. The body is full with lively carbonation and a long molasses rum and chocolate finish.

Miksu (4947) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - SEP 26, 2013
0.375 l bottle, thanks hanniku! Slightly hazy dark reddish brown color. Heavily rummy aroma with oak, vanilla, nail polish remover, cocoa and dark fruits. Taste of oak, raisins, solvent, cocoa, clove, cinnamon, ginger and cola. Thick full body. Very pungent, too much nail polish remover (ethyl acetate).

Dark brown opaque beer, good mid - tan head. Light palate, semi dry and quite crisp. At first sip it comes across as a sour dark beer but as you adjust it’s quite a sweet barrel beer. Rum that is more than offset by tangy spices. Finish is dry and minerally spicy. More of a Christmas style beer than previous editions but ironically falls in to that trap of being a tad over spiced. Also it’s a bit dry but overall hard to dislike!
