Growler, big thanks to Adam! Aroma: layers of chocolate and vanilla, roast, coffee, toffee and molasses, pleasant sweetness, notes of rum spiciness and barrel. Appearance: jet black opaque pour, a dusting of brown head, little lacing. Flavor: very rich chocolate, nice vanilla and caramel, coffee, roast malts, mellow sweetness, rum and oak, some spice, coconut, low-medium bitterness. Palate: full body, low carbonation, very smooth and drinkable. Overall: wow, an excellent brew! Well balanced, smooth, nicely integrated flavors.

Pours an opaque black from the growler with no real head or lacing but a nice brown film on the glass. Aroma of candied nuts, sweet vanilla and chocolate, a boozy middle, and a nice oaky finish. The taste follows, tastes more like a bourbon barrel than a rum barrel, but very well blended and easy to drink for what it is. What a treat, thanks for the share!

From a growler/bottle, not sure who brought this but Beau alerted me its presence and may have poured me some. Thanks for looking out, roomie! He is quite good at this and it is very much appreciated. Tasty stuff no doubt. Did not really notice the rum barrels but it was nicely balanced.

Flip-top growler from the official release thanks to burg326. Wow- so excited to try this. Inky black pour. Weaker mocha head. Nose is vanilla, hazelnut, praline, waxy dark chocolate, malted milk balls, cocoa powder. Taste is excellent, woah, so much praline, amaretto, toasted almond, brownie, hazelnut/Nutella, dark cherry, malted milk balls. Palate is lighter, easy to drink, a tad thin and lemony. But overall the experience is sublime and really amazing. Definitely worth it.

Growler shared at RBWG, poured adark black color with aromas of fudge, earth, vanilla, booze (almost rum cake like), and roasted malt. Flavors are th same a great blend where each sip made me wanting more and more of it.

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.

DTM (798) - Winters, California, USA - FEB 11, 2013
Shared bottle with Timfoolery. This beer blew me out of the water. Maybe I haven’t 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???
