Shared at the Prairie Everything Dark/Kill Your Liver Extravaganza at Jeff’s House on July 1. 12 oz bottle, vintage 2016. The pour is a lighter black with a thin ring of dark brown head and no lace as it vanishes. The aroma is full of chocolate and a heavy sweet rum addition. There is a light vanilla, a hint of coffee, and just a touch of pepper. It’s well balanced, and sweeter throughout. I like this a lot. The flavor is just as good. The chocolate and coffee are big up front. The rum barrel adds a beautiful sweetness and a great vanilla to it. There is a hint of alcohol, but it’s great. The mouth feel is a medium to heavy body with a soft carbonation and a lingeringly boozy sweet rum and chocolate aftertaste. This is fantastic. I love the depth of the rum here. 9 4 9 4 17 SG111 (2034) - New York, USA - JUN 22, 2017
UPDATED: SEP 24, 2017 Bottled. 15%. Rated 06/22/2017. Pours pitch black, tan head. Aroma is chocolate, coffee, coffee cake, cinnamon, rum, dusted cocoa powder, vanilla, coconut. There is plenty going on here, and it really is lovely. Flavor is chocolate, cinnamon, rum, rum booziness, coconut strips, vanilla, coffee cake, some chili peppers. Wow, what a majestic beer. That mouthfeel is absolutely perfect. Perfectly syrupy smooth. I cannot believe how good this is. I’m really surprised. I expected it to be good. But not this good. Maybe better than Xmas Bomb depending on the mood (which for me is saying something). 849518 - 4.4
Revisited 09/24/17. Amazing. Just as good as I remember. bumped the aroma a spot. 949518 - 4.5 pkomar (529) - Poznan, POLAND - JUN 13, 2017
This particular bottle, that Ive tried was a bit too old I think and the first time Ive tried it it might have been a bit too young, but in both cases I had a feeling that it is a class beer. Decent amount of rum which merges well with notes of chocolate and some vanilla. There is also some notes of coffee with decent amount of chillies on the palate (not overwhelming, though). Great stuff. kevinator (2721) - The Colony, Texas, USA - JUN 11, 2017
Another incredible spin on their Bomb! Aromas and flavors of rum, chocolate, roasted malt, hops, coffee and spice. Slight oak sweetness. Beautiful color and a thick mouth-feel with a thin head. Near perfect. Korcz (3390) - Warsaw, POLAND - JUN 2, 2017

Bottle shared by one of the bartenders at ISO: Beers. Pours a deep dark jet black with a thin tan head. Big fat cocoa, smells of a bit of milk splashed over Rum Chocolate Captain Crunch (I don’t think this is a real cereal flavor, but now I hope it is). The rum is present but not dominant. Integrated and yet still warm and boozy, full of chocolate and cocoa, rum and soft wood. Lovely, warm, full of vanilla nnd wood tones. Sweet and delightful.

Pours very dark brown from the bottle. The thin brown head fades almost instantly. Aroma is rum, vanilla, coconut, birthday cake icing. Wonderfully sweet and complex. Taste is quite sweet, dominated by a rum and vanilla mix. The finish is long, rum-ladened, warming, and very sweet. Body is heavy with a mild carbonation. Overall — a good dessert beer with plenty of rum notes. Biroholik (1545) - Sosnowiec, Poland, POLAND - MAY 14, 2017
Tap @ MBCC 2017 Zajebiście lepkie, złożone. Alkohol cycuś glancuś. Dużo ciała. W smaku i w aromacie mnóstwo wanilii, drewna, czekolady.
Beczka po rumie mocno wyczuwalna, a nie tak jak w przypadku innych RISów na granicy autosugestii.
Genialne, pełne, wyklejające usta i podniebienie. llkc (2736) - århus, DENMARK - MAY 14, 2017
