Swing top to taster (HUGE thanks to Danny and Adam!). Looks good; a mostly opaque black with razor-thin beige lacing. Smells and tastes GOOD; nust like the description suggests. Nice and smooth on the palate. Awesome beer.

Shared bottle with Timfoolery. This beer blew me out of the water. Maybe I havenít had a good beer in awhile, but it was amazing. Tasted of rum, toffee and some coffee notes. I could tell right from the aroma it was going to be good. Sweet malty goodness that went down way to fast. Where can I get another bottle???

Pours jet black with a light tan head. Aroma of rum, milk chocolate, caramel, brown sugar and molasses. Taste is sweet, brown sugar, rum and molasses up front. chocolate and roast. Thick and rich, a bit too sweet, I prefer rare.

Bottle from newcigarz. Thanks man. Aroma is buttered rum, toffee, candied pecans, cocoa, and black licorice. Flavor has most of the above with some medium roast coffee notes and some slight bittering hops. Palate is amazing, considering the richness of this brew, and really opens up in the middle to showcase its components. Finishes cleanly with narrowing aftertaste. Stellar beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Rich and thick pour, viscous. Thin wispy tan had with a very rich nose. Molasses and burnt sugar, toasted oak. Alcohol makes its way through. Dark fruit and molasses in the flavor.

THE stout tasting Pt1. Thank you Jack for hauling this one back! Opaque dark brown beer. Little tan head. Smooth viscous palate. Smooth chocolatey malt. rich. A little alchol zing but not too warm. Develops dark fruits and the you get a hint of the rum. Pinch of spice. Lovely rich and smooth Impy.

Reviewed on 03-12-12 at Pegís.

Pours black, mocha head, thin collar, spotty lace, wisps. Nose is smooth booze, chocolate (milk/dark/bakers), light caramel, excellent level of rum notes in there too. Itís very easy to pick out the rum version versus the regular Rare DOS and itís cool to have them side-by-side. Flavor is rum, chocolate, vanilla, burnt sugars, excellent barrel character. The booze is just oh-so-smooth and enjoyable and just to my liking. I think the rum adds something else to this beer instead of taking away from the base Rare DOS. Really just outstanding stuff. Full, rich and smooth, nice subtle carbonation, creamy finish.

I have to say, this is slightly better then Rare DOS for me. The rum barrel really adds another layer to this beer, even though I didnít think it was possible. Not sure if Iíll ever have it again, but hey, my fingers are crossed!

Flippy topped growler provided to me by Hopscotch and shared with some guys at Triton Brewery: Deep brown with a lasting creamy head and oily legs. Really nice aroma of vanilla, roast, rum, marzipan, old skool oxidization, pipe tobacco, plum, prune and vinous port like tones. Lovely barrel versus malt character, rich malts and rum lead towards an intense lasting palate. Some char, chocolate, espresso, hint of honey bread. The mouth feel is lush and oily yet not sticky nor heavy, long lasting warmth but not boozy. MUCHO THANKS ERIC, this rocks!

Growler from my favorite trader Hopscotch. Thanks a bunch for this World class treat! Pours opaque black with a creamy dense brown head. The aroma is sweet roasted malt and biscuits. Light marzipan mixed with chocolate and light licorice notes. Absolutely full flavoured! Loads of sweet licorice, chocolate and roasted malt. Sweet dark ripe fruit, coconut and berries from the rum barrel. This is simply fantastic!!! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
