On draft at Peg’s. Black pour with a small creamy tan head. Rich cocoa, coffee, spicy rum, molasses, burnt sugars, dark fruits and vanilla in the aroma. Great marriage of flavors, chewy chocolate, vanilla, molasses, licorice, wood and spicy rum. Low carbonation and booze well hidden. Very tasty beer.

500 ml swing top growler from JasonR - thanks again, Jason! Pours a deep chocolate brown, not totally opaque on the edges, with a tiny tan ring. Not much carbonation going on, which is to be expected after a few months in the growler. Aroma of vanilla, coconut, lots of oak, caramel, chocolate, earth, and warming rum throughout. Also just a hint of a metallic note. Flavor of chocolate, caramel, oak, a lot of rum, molasses, burnt sugar, dates, and toasted nuts. Light-medium bodied, with low carbonation and a mouthfeel that seems to be thin and quick but ends up coating and warming the palate. Love the aftertaste (afterburn?) here. Nice rum barrel stout. I need to get a hold of it fresher next time.

tkrjukoff (4030) - SWEDEN - MAR 10, 2013
Sniffer @ Peg’s. Pours pitch black with a small bubbly brown head. Aroma is intense and rich roasted malty sweet vanilla. Flavor is velvety fullbodied roasted malty, vaniolla, sweet a bit boozy rum. Finishes smooth with a nice bitter roasted and sweet touuch.

MeadMe (1300) - Riverview, Florida, USA - MAR 9, 2013
Pours deep dark black. Aromas of rich malt, chocolate, coffee, and barrel. Flavor is chocolate, coconut and vanilla up front. The rum barrel pushes through Nicely making for one fine drinking beer.

HighWine (951) - Whalezbro, Illinois, USA - MAR 8, 2013
Tap at the brewery. IMO this is best in show in a night that included Rare DOS, Rare Vanilla, Fast Breaker, Nooner, Coffee Vanilla, and Fixie. Still black pour that coats the glass as it touches the edge. Aroma of rum and French vanilla ice crew. Taste is very similar. Sofa king good. Full in the mouth. Delicious.

Draft at Pegs with Maggi during the barrel aged event. Pours a black body with thin brown lacing. Aroma is vanilla, oak and molasses. Mouthfeel is smooth and creamy with notes of rich vanilla, chocolate, light coconut, brownie and molasses. Awesome.

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.

jbruner (2285) - Athens, Georgia, USA - MAR 1, 2013
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.
