mcberko (11056) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 10, 2014
On tap at Widmer, pours a hazy amber with a small beige head. Aroma reveals rum barrels upfront, with notes of dried dark fruit (raisins) and caramel. Flavour brings out a rum bomb, with very far back secondary notes of raisins and other dried fruit. Boozy, but well-balanced and drinkable in small amounts. Decent beer.

Bacterial (2551) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - APR 11, 2014
Bomber on sale for $6, which turns out to be a decent deal. Hazy light brown pour with some white head. Brown sugar and slight rum nose. Taste is pretty nice, though the bitterness from the hops kind of over shadows the subtle rum / molasses / sugar / barrel character.

nuplastikk (5367) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - APR 5, 2014
Tap at Mason Lounge, listed as a Barleywine, so sort of rated from that perspective. Amber-copper body, looks filtered. Lots of rising carbonation bubbles meet an off-white, creamy head. The molasses smooths out the already malty beer. Adds some sweetness too. Creamy and smooth, this would be a fun beer to bring to a tasting. Almost has some Cream Ale tones incorporated into the rich amber malt. Vanilla touches. Quite nice, well executed.

RedSox2004 (1551) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - MAR 29, 2014
Clear reddish amber with an small off-shite head and minimal lace. Aromas of molasses, dark fruit and brown sugar. Caramel malt seetness up front, accompanied by molasses, smoke and a rummy alcohol burn. Medium body, minimal carbonation, somewhat thin mouthfeel, and an alcohol burn in the finish. Might have liked this more if I liked rum. But I don’t.

Nsanders (884) - St Paul, Minnesota, USA - MAR 23, 2014
Bomber. Medium orange brown with light lacing. Sugar cane, stoney/minerally, light rum notes, and a light woodiness. Taste has a lightly dry sweetness. Body is lighter with an oily feel. This beer seemed like a watered down dark rum.

Dark brown with no head. Light molasses aroma. Flavor of molasses and dark sugar. Light rum. A bit vinous. Not sure if it’s hop vegetal or green wood taste.
