ksurkin (1021) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - JAN 17, 2013
500ml, swing-top growler courtesy of newcigarz. thanks, tony! pours an impressive and imposing slick, dense black capped by a rich, creamy, dark mocha head that leaves heavy sheets of lace that stain the edges of the glass. aroma is incredible with huge notes of chocolate brownies, mocha coffee, truffles, caramel corn, and sweet vanilla backed by rich barrel notes, ash, smokey rum, spices, and dark fruit skins. flavor is sublimely delicious with huge notes of devils food cake, buttercream icing, toffee, and mocha espresso backed by rich, rum soaked figs, raisins, and plums followed by heavy vanilla, toasted barrel, coconut, and a touch of red wine. palate is reminiscent of the other great FL imperial stouts with a dense, thick, motor oil texture that coats the mouth and finishes with sweet cocoa, rum, and dark fruits. overall, a truly world class imperial stout that definitely lives up to the hype.

Draught at the brewery. Pours opaque black with a medium, frothy tan head, medium retention with good lacing. Aroma is moderate sweet run, chocolate and roast malt, vanilla and figs. Flavor is moderate sweet rum, oak, chocolate and roast malt with vanilla and prunes, and a sweet finish. Full body and medium carbonation.

Rating #3000. Bottle shared with ebone1988 for the Koleminer20 turns 3k and Ebone1988 turns 1.6k Bonanza. 22 oz bottle. The pour is a nice black color with a thin ring of medium khaki head and no lace to be found. Its typical Cycle thin. But its great. The aroma is fantastic. There is a beautiful heavy rum, without the alcohol. The barrel is great and the sweet dark fruits just balance wonderfully. The malt has a nice chocolate on the back end that is just lovely. The flavor is great. The bright dark fruits and rum balance the chocolate malts and a hint of charred oak. The balance is amazing. Fruity, chocolatey, nice rum balance, a hint of vanilla... this is spectacular. The mouth feel is the typical Cycle thinness with a great soft carbonation and a lingeringly sweet chocolate, fruity rum on the back with a hint of great char. Fuck me this is good.

#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.

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.

MrHangover (4248) - 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.
