17/04/2012 330ml bottle, shared by Federico & Edo (Faber) @ Brasserie 4:20. Thank you! Nera, impenetrabile, riflessi color caffé, schiuma beige-cappuccino, non molto abbondante. Al naso intense note di malti tostati, frutta secca, vaniglia, rum, alcol bene in evidenza. In bocca è un po’ troppo sbilanciata sul dolce ma mostra un sorprendente equilibrio. A tratti ricorda un vino fortificato, a tratti un liquore dolce. Nonostante il corpo importante si lascia bere bene. Gran bella birra! olsvammel (7220) - Örebro, SWEDEN - APR 15, 2012
Bottle from systembolaget. Chocolate, oak and sweet taste with a boozey rum finnish. A bit to thin and boozey for my taste but still nice to sip at. Hermod (7844) - Vantaa, FINLAND - APR 14, 2012
Bottle @Viisi Penniä, Helsinki. Poured dark brown with a thin white head. Aroma has rum, portwine notes, raisin and wood. Flavor is similar, dark fruity, raisin, sweet dessert wine, St.John Commandaria coming to mind. Long sweet dark fruity finish. Alcohol well hidden. Smooth moutfheel, full bodied. The rum is more evident in the aroma. kryon (3549) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - APR 13, 2012
Pours dark with low head that disappears after a minute
aromas of coffee, plums, some rum and hints of chocolate.
medium thin and quite sticky palate. somewaht creamy. touch of bitterness in the end.
quite sweet imperial stout. the caskyness is present and I guess the rum cask help out making the sweetness more present.
overall a very good imperial stout. maneliquor (3514) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - APR 13, 2012
Bottle from Mane Liquor. A dark, almost opaque ruby to brown pour with a small yellow head which quickly disappears. Nose is loads of sweet caramel with a large hit of rum and dark/dried fruits. Reminds me a lot of something like rum ’n’ raisin ice cream. Taste is massive on the rum. Heavy sweetness and dark fruits which work very well together. Loads of heavy caramel flavours with liquorice on the finish. Mouth feel is slick reminding me of rum but seems to taper off a little quickly. Woody finish. Cool beer. Very rum forward but works together nicely

Pour dark, almost opaque brown, with a very small and fizzy, off.white head.
Aroma of roast, plums, dates, rum, wood, vanilla, caramel, toffee. Plenty of nice sweet rum on the nose.
Taste is quite sweet, with a tiny roasted finish. Round this up quite well.
Medium body, with a semi-flat carb.
I really like this rum flavor and aroma. Sweet and smooth. worldbeertaste (1805) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - APR 8, 2012
Dark brown with a fizzy brown head. Smells of cherry, rum roast malt. Medium sticky body. Taste of berry, rum, dark roasted mealt, caramel, ash. Starts off sweet and moves to a tummy warming spirit finish. Nice novolty. Ktwse (4882) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 6, 2012
Pours dark brown / ruby to black with minimal light tan head. Aroma is very rich in dried dark fruit: figs, raisins, dates etc. Surprisingly low complexity. Taste is sweet through and through, starting off with a decent bit of carbonation, brown sugar and rum before turning into a much more overwhelming and sticky sweetness with the same fruit, orange peel, tons of alcohol and - surprisingly present - good, aged rum. Finish is long, sweet and warming. Mouthfeel rich and creamy. Like a dessert, really...

Bottle from Brew Dog online shop. Pours clear dark ruby with a moderate sized creamy tanned head. Aroma of rum and raisins, roasted malts. Taste is warm light burning harmonic alcohol, great burn at the end. Sweet from start till the end. Sticky sweet mouthfeel. Lingering fruity maltness, me like.
Vignale (3825) - Malmö, SWEDEN - APR 5, 2012
Drucken på Nya Tröls i Malmö för det smått fantasiska priset 139SEK (10 mer än på systemet). Stor söt doft av romrussin, vanilj och rostad malt. Stor, söt rund kropp med mycket romsmak, dessutom russin, fat, vanilj, choklad och mörkt sött bröd. Kanske i sötaste laget men som dessertöl till en god vaniljglass. Mums.
