Sample from tap @ Mikkeller Bar, huge thanks to oh6gdx!

Pours pitch black with a small brown head. Aroma of roasty malts, hints of wood, alcohol, rum, oak, vanilla and ripe fruits. Taste is sweetish, roasty and slightly boozy with notes of rum, wood and vanilla. Finish is warming, roasty and wooden with notes of alcohol, rum and sweet syrup. Great, quite tasty but not as perfectly balanced as the regular Rare, as the alcohol and rum notes come through a bit too much.

JanLaursen (3025) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 24, 2013
UPDATED: AUG 10, 2013 Tap at Mikkeller & Friends. Reddish dark brown with a lacing creamy small beige head. Dark roasted malts and a heavy dose of rhum and oaky accents are the first aromas that hits your nostrils. Furthermore there are notes of plums, smooth coffee, vanilla and soaked raisins. Taste is heavy sweet and medium bitter with lots of wood and a strong presence of alcohol with hints of licorice in the finish. Body is full, texture is sticky, carbonation is soft. Would like to try this on its on, with no barrel and rhum accents.

MiP (13535) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - MAY 23, 2013
Draught at Mikkeller Bar. Distinct vanilla and cigarbox aroma. Black colour. Small stable dark brown head. The flavour is also of good vanilla, quite smooth and creamy. Some smoke in the finish. Late burn, more like alcohol than hops. Flavourful, but well-balanced and very smooth.

Tap. Pitch black with a small light brown head. Rum and molasses on the nose. Notes of vanilla, coconut, very light alcohol burn, dark chocolate, sweet licorice. Rum flavors dominating. Taste is near heavy sweet and medium bitter. Medium/full body, sticky oily texture, soft carbonation. You like rum? You like big sweet imperial stouts? If yes, this is for you.
