Poured from the bottle into a taster glass. Medium/dark brown in color, very minimal head. Very sweet taste, medium body, not overly carbonated. More flavorful than a typical brown ale and very smooth, probably from the rum barrel aging. Enjoyable, I would drink it again.

poisoneddwarf (1994) - Rathdrum, Idaho, USA - MAR 22, 2013
Bomber bought at Super 1 in CDA, ID. Pours murky brownish-orange with a medium collapsing beige head. Aroma is strong in artisan caramel, molasses, booze, licorice. Taste is sweet with a little bitterness in the finish. Flavors of licorice, wet dog, rum. Oily mouthfeel, full body. Smells better than it tastes, but this is not bad.

Thisis12ptfont (1008) - 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.

mcox90 (1718) - Wilton, New Hampshire, USA - OCT 28, 2013
Sampled at NH Brew Fest. 4 oz. sample. Pours a hazy dark brown with a 1/4" white head. Aroma includes rum, molasses & dark fruits. Flavor is sweet with the molasses and dark fruits being predominant, but there is a bitterness from some earthy hops. Medium bodied. Nice, I’d buy a bottle if one came my way.

Oakes (13601) - 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.

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.
