A bit to much alcohol but in general a good beer, sweet and not too bitter... A hint of liqourice maybe, smoke, licorice, woody WeissGary (286) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - JUL 6, 2012
On tap. Been putting this beer off because of the clear bottle but was lucky enough to find it on tap in Edinburgh, Scotland. Overall a very nice beer! Quite a sweet beer but has a distinctive liquorish quality... found it to be quite drinkable despite its ABV... quite impressive... would be much better if I could feel comfortable buying off the shelf in a brown bottle! shaynsawchuk (681) - Mississauga, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 2, 2012
330 mL bottle. Pours a dark mahogany, a fine head that dissipates quickly to a thin covering. Great aromas of allspice, baked pineapple, molasses and caramel malt. Sweet and fruity with a little spice, not much hop here, but has an acidity that cuts through the richness. Full and smooth on the palate, medium carbonation with a clean finish.

Pours a deep brown with some redish highlights in it. Beer retains no head. Aroma has a strong sweetness too it. Slight smokey oak nose, a modest amount of rum sweetness, some toffee and grassy/moss finish. Flavor starts out with strong malty sweetness with very strong woody notes. Rum creeps up in the middle with a very smooth plum and prune fruitiness at the finish. Beer is smooth, oily thick with the perfect amount of carbonation. Finish on the beer is slightly dry with a strong residual sweetness that really hits in the back of the tongue and throat. Overall a pretty good brew. I think it’s a bit on the sweet side but its well balanced and the flavors have time to develop on as you drink. dougefreezy (45) - Bradenton, Florida, USA - JUN 30, 2012
Very similar to the regular oak aged beer, but sweeter, not as refreshing or smooth. An ok beer, dont think i’ll get this one again.

A very average beer at best. Aroma was skunky. There was definitely wood and rum notes but the underlying skunk smell killed it for me. Pour was a beautiful dark ruby red with a few off white blotches for a head. Taste was decent. The wood and rum are very strong and pronounced and overshadow the sweet maltiness. I originally rated this lower and after slowly drinking it realized I was comparing it to/expecting an American beer. For a style that I don’t care for (English strong ale) it’s actually very tasty. Nice carbonation round the beer out. drostj (113) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - JUN 27, 2012
Bottle. Rich, amber brown with a lot of fizz and a light head. Rich, smooth roasted malt flavor with a hint of spice. some sweetness and a nice effervescence. BoBoChamp (5755) - Gent, BELGIUM - JUN 24, 2012

It has a great, smooth taste. You can really taste the rum from the barrels they age it in.
