Hmmm....Bottle from Total Wine. Aroma is light molasses, coffee, dates, and light rum. Alcohol. Pour is dark brown, not much for a head. Flavor is similar. Very heavy molasses. Not much rum. Not the best, not the worst.

Sampled on 11/3/2012. This American Strong Ale pours a dark brown color from a 22oz bottle. Medium sized white foamy head, with decent lacing and nice retention. The aroma is caramel, molasses, brown sugar, rum and wood. A medium bodied American Strong Ale. The malts are fruity and sweet, brown sugar and molasses. The hops are herbal and earthy. Nice balance. Good carbonation. Nice wood and rum flavors throughout. Great sipping beer. The rum flavor is especially nice at the finish. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

Fantastic beer. Doesn’t taste the 9.5% ABV and being that it is brewed with palm sugar and molasses I was an initial fan. Reminiscent of rum...yum!

Pours a deep brown sugar color with a thin head. Nose is molasses and a hint of roast. Very sweet tasting beer, finish is sugary and long. Okay, but I won’t have a second.

Deep golden brown color. Light malty sweetness to the smell. Syrupy mouth feel with heavy malt residue left on the tongue! Where the sip was enjoyable the after taste was similar to licking treated wood.

Thisis12ptfont (838) - Los Angeles, CA, California, USA - JUN 8, 2013
Aromas of maple syrup, molasses, honey and yeast. Deep brown with a magenta tint. Assertive hops and burnt caramel upfront. Slick, syrupy molasess, raisins, amber malt and boozey undertones. Finish leaves a continues booze taste and syrup on the tongue. Overall, This was much hoppier than I expected. Noticeable alcohol and nice malt base. I’d give this an A- rating.
