Dark brown color, no cloudiness. Interesting aroma and palate. More sweet than I expected.

Shink (177) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 9, 2012
Dark brown but still a little clear. Tan head and a sweet aroma. Sweet taste with a hint of oak and a little alcohol taste. Very smooth considering the alcohol content. More of a dessert beer than one to drink with dinner.

At first kind of thin. Not getting a big brown ale taste. Then the rum notes start to pop as the beer warms up. By the end quite nice but I would still prefer more rum to start.

Even opaque brown with a thin white head. Aroma and taste are nutty roasted sugars, and taste is the same with slight tannic bitterness. $5/10 ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

The pour is a translucent, deep mahogany color with a fairly small, beige, pillowy head which is somewhat lasting and leaves minimal lace. The nose is fairly bland for the strength of the beer; molasses, brown sugar, light smoky notes, faint metallic, faint anise toasted caramel, and some roast in there. The flavor is nice with rich caramel, molasses, faint rum barrels, brown sugar, some spicy notes, still some light smoke and roast. The palate is nearly full, less than lively, warming, chewy, and slightly syrupy. The finish is still rich with molasses, more roasty tones, slight anise, and a slight barrel note emerging. Not a bad strong brown ale but the additions seemed to be fairly minimal. The descriptions from the bottle did not really come through which leads me to believe that this one may benefit from some age. However, it is probably not worth it to pay the $13 for another to find out.

Tap @ Widmer Gasthaus... Poured dark brown with hints of red and a bubbly, white head. Nice lacing. Initially served too cold and offered a slight metallic flavor. This faded as it warmed. Overall quite worty with big malt grains and sweetness. Bitter-sweet molasses, brown sugar, oak, and hints of rum. Not over ally apparent that it was barrel aged.
