COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
No. 15, much like a certain fabled two-piece candy bar of our youth, rich, dark chocolate notes accented with aromatic toasted coconut. What would add depth and character to this already delicious combo, we wondered? The answer is time (6 months) well spent in the very best rum barrels available.

12oz bottle in a snifter. Pour dark brown with small, beige head. Aroma of chocolate, roasted malts, light coconut, rum barrels, and light toffee. Flavor the same with a decent blend. Average to smoother texture. A cool beer but not as good as I was hoping for.

Dark brown color almost no head. Deep aroma of chocolate with coconut, alcohol. Full bodied, extra sweet, with partial balance given by the strong alcohol presence; strong raisins, some nuts, spirit (rum), touch of coconut.
Nice drink, very strong, not graceful but pleasing.

Bottle, February 15, 2014. After some time in the cellar it’s taken a more vinous port-like character, the coconut is barley noticeable and the rum notes are more subtle. This bottle had some of the coconut flakes in it as well. It’s past it’s peak.
8-3-8-4-16=39.

Bottle on release day. Pours brown with a small tan head. Aroma is is a very nice mix of rum and chocolate, vanilla, oak, dark fruits and light coconut. Taste follows with sweet rum, chocolate, vanilla dark fruits. Full bodied with low carbonation.
