#1600. Bottle shared with koleminer20 for the Koleminer20 Turns 3K and Ebone1988 turns 1.6K Bonanza. Aroma is wonderful, rum, barrel, dark fruit, milk chocolate, roasted malt, coffee, licorice, sweet with no detection of booze. Appearance is black, brown head, poured a typical Cycle thin. Taste is magnificent. Dark fruit, chocolate, coffee, barrel, rum, slightest smoke, fantastic. Mouthfeel is medium to heavy body, light carbonation, ridiculously decadent chocolate fruit rum barrel aftertaste. Overall, this beer is ridiculous. Mesjasz (1623) - Lodz, POLAND - DEC 11, 2016

22oz from the rotter. Nose is huge barrel character. Soft vanilla and marshmallow. Modest wood tannins and barrel char. Some alcohol on the nose. Soft chocolate and fudge. Alcohol very noticeable as it warms. Black. Small light khaki head. Taste is initially a cocoa and rum cake marriage. Light vanilla with very fruity esters coming through mid palate. Soft dried fruit but not vinous, in a good way. Tatse is very vanilla forward. Modest alcohol warming but never hot. This is why I like barrel aged stouts. Good stuff. The rum really softens the stout character while keeping the chockateband mellowing the harsher flavors.

Shared at the Hoppy Pub at the courtesy of Rouhlas, thanks Nick !
Pours dark, almost black with a brown head. Aroma of Roasted malts, rum, coffee and some dark fruits. Amazing taste with rum, coffee, bitter chocolate, some fruit. Licorice. Silky mouthfeel and so enjoyable long aftertaste...What a great beer ! MrHangover (4693) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - NOV 1, 2016
Bottle. Pours a pitch black, headless beer with a great aroma of rum and molasses, dark chocolate. Flavor starts off with a big chocolate base, sweet molasses but finishes with a big rum character,, spicy sweet and a bit of weirdness. Have a feeling that the rum unbalances the beer a little bit, but still the scale is tipping to the awesomeness. Quite flat in the mouthfeel, finishes long and sticky sweet. ctipping (2233) - Florida, USA - JUL 28, 2016
On-tap at Peg’s. Originally reviewed March 9, 2012.
Quite black with a nice dark khaki/mocha head. Sticky without much retention.
Nose has strong barrel notes of vanilla and oak. Rum is secondary, which is good because I don’t love the rum aroma. Good chocolate behind everything. Really smells quite wonderful.
Rum is definitely more prominent in the taste. Sweet rum flavor with less barrel. Some vanilla and oak, but mostly rum. Chocolate and some bitterness. Good finish from the stout, but the rum lingers for a bit too long making it seem hot.
Tingly alcohol without being too boozy. Low carbonation. The lingering rum flavor is a bit unpleasant, though.
I don’t think this is anywhere near as good as Rare DOS, but I’m in the minority. I find that the rum detracts more than it adds.
