UPDATED: APR 9, 2014 Mild sweet aroma, strong smokey favour, rum is definitely there too. It?s a very strong, intense beer, not for the faint of heart.
Have to say liking the smokey integration into this beer as it gives it another level of complexity. Not quite the richness that I was hoping for with the use of rum barrel, but on the whole this is a very good beer. GlassBrass440 (321) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - MAY 4, 2015
Pours dark, dark, dark, brown with a caramel tan head that maintains a thick meniscus around the glass. Balanced smokey-sweet aromas with a nutty undertone. Flavour is of peated whiskey, chocolate, and oak. Spicy phenols join the party in the late palate. A chocolaty, smokey finish and drying mouthfeel complete the sip, inviting you for more. vanvenlo (1896) - Glen Iris, AUSTRALIA - APR 6, 2015

OPP. Sakea, punertavaan taittava tummanruskea. Tuoksussa rommia, puuta, savuisuutta, makeaa mallasta, ehkä aavistus hapanta kirsikkaa. Maussa nokea, rommia, mallasta, humalaa. En tykkää.

hazy sepia, thin cream ring. Light rum sweetness in nose, peppery, heavy char oak. Sweet front, tar and lightly burnt oak, more booze growing mid, more burnt aspects. Full bodied finish, chalky end. Way too much burnt here
12oz bottle pours a murky, oily black with some creamy egg yolk colored head. Nose of rubber, raisin, black pepper, yeasty, burnt caramel. Flavor is rubbery, crackery, burnt bread, medicinal, lots of charcoal. Full bodied, boozy finish. radagast83 (8152) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - DEC 6, 2014
Bottle. Poured a dark black-brown color with a small off-white head. Aroma was mostly smoke, with some woody notes. Bitter, dark chocolate. No real rum notes, but general barrel character. solidfunk (9035) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - DEC 6, 2014
