2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at Dexters, left over from the Vintage tap take over, pours a dark clear amber with a thin head, the aroma was of straight rum and booze, a little bit of sweetness comes through but mostly booze, the flavor is extremely sweet with a ton of caramel and malt with a strong finish of booze, like Matt said, not only rum, but just a heavy alcohol like finish, this seriously tasted like it was 20%, not 10.5%.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the 2013 Big Barrel Tarrarel - Pours murky cola with a thin tan ring of head. Nose is boozy--it’s not so much rum as it is whiskey. Sweet and malty. Taste is really sweet and caramelly--not really run--just kind of a general spirit sweetness. Nice carbonation--smooth and med-bodied.
