It poured a dark brown color with a light tan head. The aroma was of malts, molasses and a hint of rum. The taste was of roasted malts, molasses, rum and caramel. Good stuff.

22oz bottle - First, thanks to my brother for plunking down the $$ for this beer because I was hesitant in getting it, although it’s easy enough to find. The aroma finds some subtle molasses and brown sugar, but surprisingly...no rum, no evidence of barrel aging...very much centered toward plainville. Medium sweetness on the palate, leaning a little towards the caramel profile but still a neutral sweetness like white sugar. Slightly metallic/dirty penny also picked up. No rum (was this Bacardi 151 barrels?) noticed, no woody/vanilla notes...aged in barrel’s? I would have never noticed. Overpriced and underwhelming.

AirForceHops (5029) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - OCT 5, 2014
22 oz. bottle shared by friends, split 4 ways. 2013 vintage. Aroma is all kinds of sweet; caramel, molasses, brown sugar and mild dark fruit.

The rum barrel is only lightly noticeable in the finish with the over the top sweet flavors. The booze is completely hidden but almost anything would be hidden in this amount of sweetness. Medium in body with soft carbonation. Perhaps this was not one to hold onto. Drink fresh.

douglas88 (7587) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 4, 2014
On tap at the brewery. Pours a deep brown color with a medium white head. A sweet toffee, fruity sweet nose. The flavor is light rum, tropical notes, toffee, earthy dry malt base, a bit of caramel. Some heat. Very nice.

akoeninger (577) - Wisconsin, USA - SEP 26, 2014
On tapas Dexter's pub. Pours brownish with thin white head. Aroma of vanilla, rum, and molasses. Taste is mostly barrel. Perhaps overpowered by the barrels. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

"Unique, but I question the choice of barrels and the ability of the beer to stand up to barrels. Tropical flavors, coconut and wood, passion fruit maybe? From the barrels. The beer doesn’t shine through a whole lot. Sweet molasses and a hint of roast is about it. Overpriced."

Oakes (13966) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 31, 2014
Hazy light amber-brown, light sugary nose, some big molasses taste, with barrelly notes. Rich, lingering complex molasses character, the alcohol just enough to cut through this. Tasty.

PorterPounder (6535) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - AUG 28, 2014
Tallahassee, Fl. - New Leaf Market - 22 oz bomber - fire sale at $4.49 per. Deep dark chestnut brown pour with a tight of-white head that clings to the edge of the glass for a while. Aroma has a slight boozy hint to it, some soft creosote notes,a bit of brown sugar. Flavor is full-bodied with some brown sugar notes, a touch of molasses, some light chocolate and just a touch of bourbon-like booziness. Mouthfeel has a nice thick richness to it. Pretty solid - but glad I waited till they lowered it from $13.99 or whatever it was.
