a little too boozy as the rum is over the top in nose and flavor. too bad, cause it seems like a good rum and would be well over a 4 if it was toned down a bit.

Just like for BT, the rum barrel does an uncanny job of augmenting the sweetness without adding to it. Nice, subtle spicy finish added to the profile. Yum

Tap at The Bruery. Pours dark brown with no head. Aroma of rum and treacle. Full bodied. Flavor of fruit, rum, heat and treacle. It’s sweet, but not so much as expected. Like rum.
