bittermestupid (247) - Canton, Ohio, USA - JAN 26, 2012
Pours dark brown with a tan head. Smell: booze, raisins, some rum and cinnamon, vanilla and nutmeg. Sour at first sip then the rum boozyness comes through along with a mess of holiday spices, everything is just garbled. Medium on the palate and a boozy but sour finish.

ddemmingjr (696) - Chagrin Falls, Ohio, USA - JAN 21, 2012
bottle at Greenhouse Tavern after the BB Blackout stout opening party at Great Lakes Brewery. So, the palate may be a bit open to interesting takes like this rum barrel Santa’s Helper. pours dark brown with sandy head. Fig, esters, vanilla barrel and roasted malts on nose. more sweetness then a port fruitiness comes through. some chocolate and astringency adds a weird sourness to this brew. overall very unique but a bit unbalanced. Not sure if I’d dig it this much as a first of the evening.

pineypower (2504) - Pine Barrens, New Jersey, USA - JAN 20, 2012
Bottle shared thanks to Dmac. Pours out almost black with a moderate tan head. Aroma is of some sweet fruit, nail polish remover, light rubbing alcohol. Taste is of dried cherries, rubbing alcohol, what I’d imagine nail polish remover tastes like. What kind of rum was used to age this? Cherry scented nail polish remover rum?

dmac (3983) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - JAN 12, 2012
Bottle from Cranbury BuyRite. Poured a nice looking pitch black center with super dark brown edges and a larger foamy beige head. Aroma is basically nail polish remover with a dash of sour chocolate. Flavor is abou the same as the aroma loads of acetone, followed by very sour cherry more acetone and then finally a hint of chocolate and grains. This is dreadful.

dimenhetfield (2487) - , Florida, USA - JAN 11, 2012
Massive Mikkeller pt.2 This one had a big old nose full of rum and spice. Dark brown color with a slight foamy head. Easy to drink? Slightly but I always enjoy a good sipper. Solid in my book.

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 14/20
deyholla (6568) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - JAN 6, 2012
Bottle thanks to Neugs. Pour a hazy earthy brown with a grayish brown head that is large but dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a good amount of dark fruits that are slightly tart backed by sweet grain and a hint of spice. Flavor has an interesting combination of tart dark fruit (port like), rum and spice that doesn’t really work with the malt backbone.

Travlr (10035) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - JAN 1, 2012
Bottle. Clear maroon, small beige head. Aroma of red wine, vanilla. Taste is sweet and sour port. Barrel is subtle.

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 13/20
tiong (3699) - Espoo, FINLAND - DEC 28, 2011
375ml bottle

Pours dark brown with a foamy head. Aroma has notes of alcohol, peach, malts and fruits. Taste is slightly strange with notes of malts, glue and exotic fruits. Alcohol and rum notes burn through too much. Finish is quite sticky and alcoholic. Quite unbalanced and not that good.
