hayduke (3767) - Eureka, California, USA - JUL 15, 2015
This was a draft pour at the RBSG. Poured amber, maybe even copper, with an off-white head. Nose caramel malts with a hint of rum. Medium plus body. Flavor is rich with some sugar, vanilla, and dark fruit. The rum and sugar combine for a nice finish. Very nice.

GreatDane1632 (1010) - Alabama, USA - JUL 5, 2015
Rated based on notes taken 27 Sep 2012 -- That’s a pretty dang tasty brew. Lots of deep dark sweetness that is accentuated by the barrel aging. Didn’t get much rum, but it was a smooth beer.

brokensail (13227) - Orange County, California, USA - JUN 24, 2015
On tap @ Widmer. Dark amber colored pour with a thin off-white head. Nose of spicy rum and ginger with a touch of chili powder. Lots of caramel, toasted wood, and vanilla. Maybe a little sugary...slight citrus marmalade along with some dark fruits. Certainly quite sweet on the tongue, but luckily not really cloying or syrupy. Rum adds a nice but subtle spice character that cuts the sugar character a bit. Pretty decent, actually.
