Pours black, mocha head, thin collar, spotty lace, wisps. Nose is smooth booze, chocolate (milk/dark/bakers), light caramel, excellent level of rum notes in there too. Itís very easy to pick out the rum version versus the regular Rare DOS and itís cool to have them side-by-side. Flavor is rum, chocolate, vanilla, burnt sugars, excellent barrel character. The booze is just oh-so-smooth and enjoyable and just to my liking. I think the rum adds something else to this beer instead of taking away from the base Rare DOS. Really just outstanding stuff. Full, rich and smooth, nice subtle carbonation, creamy finish.

I have to say, this is slightly better then Rare DOS for me. The rum barrel really adds another layer to this beer, even though I didnít think it was possible. Not sure if Iíll ever have it again, but hey, my fingers are crossed!

Bottle thanks to Will. Pours a very dark brown with beige head that lasts. The aroma is strong rum, cocoa, dark chocolate, wood. Slick mouthfeel with a light wood, dark chocolate, very sweet, lingering dry finish, very nice.

Clugs out of the bottle like what pours out of a 1983 Chevette thatís never had an oil change after wrenching off the drain plug. A beautiful red-brown head forms, but unfortunately falls way too quickly. So much richness in the nose. Dark roasted grain, sweet chocolate and vanilla, a touch of tobacco, coconut. Just a fade of smokiness. Big, thick, chewy mouthfeel. Chocolate, prune, Amish Bread, vanilla, and coconut flavors. Just a fade of alcohol comes forward toward the finish. Truly legendary.

Bottle thanks to Beau at the meatball tasting. Pours like it should. Nose is chock full of vanilla sweetness and mild spice before you are enveloped by dark fruits, brown sugar and buttery fudge. The taste upfront is dominated by milk chocolate and vanilla with loads of stewed sultana and raisins. A nice currant undertone goes throughout with mild spice and Christmas cake fruitiness and depth. Creamy and balanced for such a big beer. World class

22 oz bottle. Dark brown with tan frosting. Nose is chocolate, rum, dates and wood. Silky like cocoa, then hot like a shot. Taste is bittersweet chocolate, rum raisin, brief vanilla and tobacco. Barrel adds depth without dominating. Tasty and distinctive.

At common table with Colin, Jacob, Justin, and friends. Pours black with a hint of lacing. Aroma is huge pungent rum, smooth roast, a complex and authentic sweet note that almost reminds me of double barrel huna. Taste is same as aroma is. I really like this, but it burns a little too much.

On tap. Smell is all rum. Comes out black with a nice tan head. Taste is very smooth. A nice balance of the richness and the barrel. Easy to drink for such a strong beer. Comparable to BA Zhukov. Just as good.

UPDATED: AUG 11, 2014 Thanks Matt for sharing. Thick black, not much carbonation. Thick and chewy. Rum is very well balanced in this big sweet stout. Really enjoyed it.

UPDATED: AUG 16, 2014 Nice stout, chewy body, super sticky some vanilla and light toffee. Not a lot of harsh acrid roast, not bitter. More sweet. Really good
