Pours opaque coffee brown, not much head. Aroma features gingerbread, roast malt, woody and rum notes. Flavor adds a little coffee and molasses to the mix. Mouthfeel presents good body and fair fizz. Roll out the barrel! radagast83 (8137) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - JUN 4, 2017
Draft at Churchkey. Poured a nearly pitch black color with a small wispy head. Aroma was spices, roasted and sweet malt characters. Gingerbread is still pretty strong in this one, for being a keg from at least 6 months back. Woody notes, boozy rum notes. Rum cake notes, gingerbread. Enjoyable, but in small doses I think. anders37 (26726) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAR 6, 2017

Bottle at RBGT. Pours dark brown. Aroma is rum barrel indeed, over some porter roastiness and gingerbread spices. Body is heavy, with strong rum barrel notes, sweet caramel and nuts. Long sweet palate. Nice.

Pours a deep black from the bomber with bubbly tan head that leaves moderate lace. Aroma of booze and spice. Taste is spicy ginger and cinnamon notes over hints of rum and booze. Really nice, a little hot, but good stuff. rxeight (3111) - Illinois, USA - JAN 24, 2017

Thanks Matt for sharing the bottle! Poured into a taster showing pitch black with no head.
The nose shows ginger, nutmeg, and cinnamon.
The palate is light bodied and moderately carbonated. Very ginger forward with flavors of nutmeg and cinnamon in the background. Ginger leaves a strong and sharp spiciness throughout. Not much rum barrel at all. drjoeng (1325) - SINGAPORE - JAN 8, 2017
