mcberko (6702) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 29, 2013
1L growler, sent from mwgroove23 (thank Mike), pours jet black with with a small tan head. Aroma is very intense, with notes of rum, wood, heavy roasted malt and caramel. Flavour is uber-rich, with loads of rich roasted malt, perfectly positioned rum notes, wood and a bit of vanilla. Extremely potent, with notes of rum and vanilla at the forefront, leaving a woody finish. Very viscous and slightly syrupy, but in no way cloying. Extremely complex and highly drinkable for a big barrel-aged impie. Awesome stuff.

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.

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.

Draught @ Mikkeller, Viktoriagade. Pours black with a lacing creamy light brown small head. Aroma is roasted malt, rum, wood, coffee, bitter chocolate and vanilla. Very distinct rum-barrel signature. Taste near heavy sweet and bitter. Body is near full, texture is thick and oily, carbonation is soft.
