Loved this. Pours a murky orange with off white bread. Aromas are strong caramel and brown sugar. Flavors are very malty and sugary. I get some rum too. This is nice.

Tap @ Widmer Gasthaus... Poured dark brown with hints of red and a bubbly, white head. Nice lacing. Initially served too cold and offered a slight metallic flavor. This faded as it warmed. Overall quite worty with big malt grains and sweetness. Bitter-sweet molasses, brown sugar, oak, and hints of rum. Not over ally apparent that it was barrel aged.

talon1117 (1152) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAY 25, 2012
The pour is a translucent, deep mahogany color with a fairly small, beige, pillowy head which is somewhat lasting and leaves minimal lace. The nose is fairly bland for the strength of the beer; molasses, brown sugar, light smoky notes, faint metallic, faint anise toasted caramel, and some roast in there. The flavor is nice with rich caramel, molasses, faint rum barrels, brown sugar, some spicy notes, still some light smoke and roast. The palate is nearly full, less than lively, warming, chewy, and slightly syrupy. The finish is still rich with molasses, more roasty tones, slight anise, and a slight barrel note emerging. Not a bad strong brown ale but the additions seemed to be fairly minimal. The descriptions from the bottle did not really come through which leads me to believe that this one may benefit from some age. However, it is probably not worth it to pay the $13 for another to find out.

Even opaque brown with a thin white head. Aroma and taste are nutty roasted sugars, and taste is the same with slight tannic bitterness. $5/10 ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

pours a clear brown with a small off white head that quickly leaves, and a little lacing. smell is nice, brown sugar, woody, a touch of caramel, and spice. taste is thick, wood, sugar, molasses, malt, some roastiness, a touch of white pepper, and a few hops. ends smooth and a tad bit of bitterness.

dfinney23 (1691) - Houston, Texas, USA - SEP 4, 2012
Bottle pours brown with a barely-there tan head. Aroma of rum and brown sugar. The taste is molasses, darker and fairly bitter, less sweet than might be expected.

Dogbrick (8149) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 30, 2013
Sample at Hal & Al’s. Pours a hazy brown color with a medium khaki head that recedes slowly. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted malt and rum. Medium to full body with flavors of roast malt, oaky rum and mild hops. The finish is sweet with a rum and molasses aftertaste. Decent overall.
