3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Swing top bottles (batches 2 and 3) - thanks, Kevin! Pours dark brown with no head. Aroma of caramel, cola; chocolate; vanilla. Basically smells like liquid chocolate candy corn! Taste: chocolate candy corn, I’m sticking with it. Some oxidation, some rum, but mostly candy corn. Newer batch tasted / smelled of buttered rum, which I found somewhat unappealing. Viscous, slick texture. I really liked the (older, non-buttery) batch a lot.

Thanks for opening this Tom! Pours black in color with a small amount of head. Brown stains the glass upon swirling. Nose is malt, spirits, booze, vanilla, and oak. Flavor starts out heavy malt and oak, and finishes with a large amount of vanilla sweetness. There is almost a little harshness to it despite being sweet. Mouthfeel is smooth and velvety, booze is actually hidden pretty well, and it has a moderate to long finish. Nice beer, though I think I prefer the RareR DOS more personally. Found this to be a little heavy handed with the vanilla.

The vanilla flavor is a little like extract. There's good coffee nut malt and barrel aged flavor but a little disappointing overall.
