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

Ok, maybe the best beer I’ve tried so far, not cause it’s 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.

Shared bottle at Crete RB tasting at Antons place. Pours black with a small creamy tanned head. Strong aroma, roasted malts, dark fruits, coffee and rum. Taste is the same, complex dark roasted malts, some nice herbal notes and lovely smooth liquorice, minty long hoppy finish. Lovely complex IS.

beernbourbon (1488) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - MAY 29, 2015
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.

Bottle shared @ the ever awesome dangerous bottleshare #7 . Pours black with a brown head. Oh yeah! Aroma on this is just insanely good. Chocolate, vanilla, dark sweet fruits, very slight roast, fudge and a nice rum character. Woah! The taste is sweet and barrel infused with notes of vanilla, dark sweet fruits, chocolate, sweet rum, brown sugar, dark chocolate brownie, sweet licuorice and slightly roasted. The alcohol is present but blends in very well with the rum. This is simply amazing! Just straight up awesome!

tectactoe (3125) - Michigan, USA - MAR 19, 2015
Growler: Thanks, Mike. Thick, viscous looking pour. Completely black with no head, nada. Barely even a tan ring around the glass. Huge rum character on the nose without being overbearing. Boozy & semi-tropical rum cake, molten chocolate, toasted graham cracker, molasses, vanilla, plums & figs, & some burnt brown sugar with a robust alcohol warmth. Flavor has lots of the dark fruitiness up front; raisins, plums, figs, black cherry, all with a heavy, dense sweetness like they were coated in rum then rolled in brown sugar. Chocolate, caramel, rum, vanilla, & heavy molasses towards the finish. Big, boozy presence without being hot or abrasive. Heavy bodied, slightly chewy mouth feel with a moderate oiliness. This stuff is great.
