Light brown. Thin bubbly head. Sweet and rummy. Chewy, sugary, chocolatey. Like most of their rum barrel stuff, just really rich and decadent. Not the best underlying beer for the treatment, maybe, but good. dimenhetfield (2554) - , Florida, USA - MAR 17, 2012
On draft at Cigar City Huna Day 2012. Another showing that was in your face rum. Big hints of chocolate, milk lactose and rum abound. Probably only one glass would be enough for me. daknole (11402) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAR 12, 2012
Deep black pour, brown head. Loads of sweet rum, lactose, dark chocolate, coffee. Damn great taste here, bourbon, vanilla, chocolate, vanilla, caramel, coffee. Hell yes! crosamich (474) - Twin Falls, Idaho, USA - MAR 11, 2012
Haven’t had the base beer to compare against yet but this one is tasty. Spiciness and sweetness from the barrel plus the sweet of the milk porter and the roasted notes make for a nice sipper. rbrazell (1763) - Florida, USA - DEC 25, 2011
Draft at brewery christmas day Pours black with a little creamy khaki colored ring of a head. Nose is sweet milk, light roastiness, booze, and light spiciness from the barrel. Flavor is more sweetness, chalk and roasted malts with more of the rum barrel spice showing through than the nose finishes dry and some spiciness. Pretty nice variation of the Imperial Milk Porter.

On tap at WOODSHOP CLASSIXbrokensail (16645) - Dublin, California, USA - SEP 2, 2011
Appearance: Pours a viscous dark brown. No head on this draft pour.
Aroma: Sweet dark fruit, chocolaty malt and booze.
Taste. Rum raisin ice cream and tobacco. Spicy hops. Rich chocolaty malt, cocoa, and the perfect touch of booze and wood.
Mouthfeel: Full bodied. Noticeable, yet non intrusive carbonation.
Overall: A+. This was a main event caliber beer, that I enjoyed amongst many top contenders that day.
A: The beer pours dark brown in color with a finger of off-white head.
S: Definitely a bit boozy. Lots of rum, vanilla, and oak to go along with nice chocolate aromas. There’s a touch of coconut and a mild spice and dark fruit character.
T: The flavor lacks that ethanol character that the nose has which makes it much more enjoyable. Nice roast and chocolate notes along with rum, vanilla, and coconut. A touch of toffee and some cocoa powder and raisins.
M: Medium bodied with a medium, smooth carbonation.
O: The flavor was very nice, but the booze of the aroma was my only real knock on this. BMan1113VR (7929) - Los Angeles, California, USA - AUG 29, 2011
Keg at Woodshop 6. Pours with a pitch black pour. with a small tan head. Aromas of bourbon (or oak), brown sugar, vanilla, chocolate, lactose and dark fruits. Flavors mimic the aroma. Muscavado, lactose, chocolate (bitter and milk), vanilla, rum, oak. Medium bubbles and mouthcoating. Very tasty. I know it is a completely different type of beer, but I might have enjoyed this more than Final Push. peteinSD (1468) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 28, 2011
Keg at Woodshop - sweet! Aroma is light chocolate, leather, cocoa, rum, milky chocolate, and subtle roast. Taste is milky chocolate up front with light roasted malt, expresso, and a bit of hop bitterness in the finish. The rum somehow works around the chocolate and roast both in the aroma and flavor. Man, these guys never seem to miss with their imperials - this is another winner. paultheguru (662) - Parker, Colorado, USA - AUG 26, 2011
