Growler. Thin sloppy head of off-white bubbles. Rich buttery aroma with lots of rum notes, sweet malts. lactose, blackberry and butterscotch. Color is a very dark brown. Rich flavor again with lots more sweet malts, smoked grains, charred bread, plums and just a touch of butterscotch. Hides its alcohol very well for a 12% brew. Finishes a tad oily and sweet with lingering smoke and ash. A decent brew but I was expecting a little bit better melding of flavors. Maybe it is just a bit too fresh and needs to age a bit.

Poured an amber color with aromas of booze, rum, oak, light maple syrup, grain, and some light vanilla. Flavors match the aromas, deep alcohol burn, booze, and subtle dark fruit.

22 oz. bottle purchased at One Stop Market. Deep ruby color with lasting head retention. Served just slightly chilled. Aroma is a faint note of rum nothing else.
Flavor is dark fruit, anise, brown sugar and cola with Captain Morgan. Texture is thin maple syrup and lightly spicy finish. When I used to drink sprits I liked rum! So overall I kind of like it.

In a tasting glass. Pours a nice brown with an off white head. Aroma is complex. Rum, oak, vanilla, raisins, maple syrup, and toast. Soft carbonation. This is a sweet one. Taste is rummy, maple syrup. The oak barrels come through. Med body with a syrup mouth feel. Very interesting.
