timfoolery (1126) - California, USA - FEB 6, 2013
Bottle from newcigarz. Thanks man. Aroma is buttered rum, toffee, candied pecans, cocoa, and black licorice. Flavor has most of the above with some medium roast coffee notes and some slight bittering hops. Palate is amazing, considering the richness of this brew, and really opens up in the middle to showcase its components. Finishes cleanly with narrowing aftertaste. Stellar beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ctipping (1411) - Florida, USA - JUL 28, 2016
On-tap at Pegís. Originally reviewed March 9, 2012. Quite black with a nice dark khaki/mocha head. Sticky without much retention. Nose has strong barrel notes of vanilla and oak. Rum is secondary, which is good because I donít love the rum aroma. Good chocolate behind everything. Really smells quite wonderful. Rum is definitely more prominent in the taste. Sweet rum flavor with less barrel. Some vanilla and oak, but mostly rum. Chocolate and some bitterness. Good finish from the stout, but the rum lingers for a bit too long making it seem hot. Tingly alcohol without being too boozy. Low carbonation. The lingering rum flavor is a bit unpleasant, though. I donít think this is anywhere near as good as Rare DOS, but Iím in the minority. I find that the rum detracts more than it adds.

Ok, maybe the best beer Iíve tried so far, not cause itís better than any other beer but I really like Rum, and the wedding of Imperial Stouts and Rum in this one is amazing!!!!! 650 ml bottle shared at a RB tasting session in Chania, Crete. Pours a pitch black color with a thin brown head. Aroma is super intense, with chocolate, rum, vanilla, caramel, and oak. Taste is sweet but not cloying, with chocolate, rum, vanilla, caramel, biscuit, freshly baked bread, some plums on the back, GOD this is amazing!!! The aftertaste is just long till you have another sip!!! Medium to full body with low to medium carbonation.

Bottle thanks to Justin a trade a while back. Pour is rick black with a thin ring of tan foam. Also many slowly rising small bubbles. Aroma is rich and boozy with loads of rich chocolate malt, vanilla, tobacco, licorice, and liquor. Flavor is rich and sweet with liquor notes coming through strong. Not much alcohol burn, but the rum is apparent. Vanilla, chocolate, rum. The palate is a little thin but this is really nice stuff.
