Growlerette received in trade from MeadMe, thanks for the opportunity. Pours a thick inky black color with a tiny tan head that dissipates quickly. The aroma is heavy on the alcohol and rum with bits of roast, chocolate, dark pitted fruit and caramel. The flavor is chocolate, brown sugar, and caramel with a heavy presence of ethanol, rum and bits of earthy wood. Faint smokey malt and bits of dark fruit round out the flavor nicely. Medium to thick body with a light level of carbonation, and a slick, oily mouthfeel. This one gets a bit hot and is a sipper to be sure. This grew on me as I got towards the end.

Opaque black, thin khaki lacing. Black rum, plum, cherry, chocolate syrup, leather, and charred wood. Light sweetness at the front, liquor bitterness in the back. Silky smooth, viscous, and full-bodied. A bit boozy, but plays well with the flavors. Lingering bitter finish that’s very pleasant. Using rum barrels seems to result in a gentler barrel character.

Growler, trade from sean9689, thanks. Black body with a medium light brown head. Aroma is coffee, licorice, salty, roasted malt, oak. Flavour is licorice, coffee, dark chocolate, hoppy notes, oak. I sense the rum as well. Very balanced impy stout. Soft carbonation. This is amazing, imo a little better than rare dos. Yummy.

Batch is 2013 mid year. Insane pitch black color, very thin tan head. Nose is rum spice, rich roasted malt, vanilla and mild dark chocolate. Flavor is decadent. Not to be a cheap rater but... All the same flavors as the aroma. The mouthfeel is real creamy with lots of silky texture. Full body with a great level of complexity. Rum is one of the few hard Liquors that I really enjoy, this gives me an imperial stout with rum barrel, a big Grand Slam home run for me, really awesome stout!

Growler shared by Adam. Black pour with a small tan head. Roasted malt, booze, rum, and a touch of vanilla. Coffee, chocolate, and spice. Flavor is spiced rum, alcohol, roasted malt, and chocolate. Decent vanilla, wood, and coffee. A touch bitter on the finish.

500mL growler thanks to Matt! A: Thin mocha head with a thick oily black body. Legs from a supermodel. N: Licorice, burnt wood, raisin, lots of rum and vanilla. Tons of chocolate. Very spicy with lots of sweet cherry notes. A touch of ethanol. T: Very, very well balanced. Lots of vanilla sweetness with a decent hop bitterness and some charred wood to round it out. M: Oily and thick. Minor levels of carbonation keep this off the tongue enough so that it remains drinkable. O: Thoroughly balanced and very enjoyable. It’s composed and well-blended together. Would definitely have this again.

Flip top thanks to Luke! Pours a pure jet black color with some legs, a medium brown head. A big cocoa, rum, ash, char nose. The flavor is huge fudge, oak, sweet hot rum, dark fruit, tobacco, bitter chocolate. The rum adds a bit of a tropical element. Very damn good.

Thanks to bu11zeye for sharing this beer. Black with a tan head. The aroma has some sweet rum notes as well as some chocolate and roasted malt. The flavor is similar. The chocolate and brown sugar notes come through up front, with some roasted malt and cream notes also showing up. Thick mouthfeel and low carbonation. A very nice stout.
