Bottle. Pours thick and black with only a slight mocha head ringing the glass. Aromas of spiced rum, cacao, vanilla, coconut, roasted malts. Taste is similar with coconut, vanilla, and cacao prominent; the alcohol is immediately noticeable. A moderate sweetness up front overtaken midpalate by a strong, pronounced bitterness. The alcohol taste is a stronger than I would like once it starts to warm up a bit. Full bodied and creamy with minimal carbonation. dfinney23 (3269) - Houston, Texas, USA - OCT 20, 2016
The only minor negative about this beer is the thin fizzy head that quickly disappears. Cocoa and more aroma. Taste starts coffee the a big burst of cocoa powder and the faintest bit of chile. Toasty, roasty darkness and other delights. Wonderfully oily, coating the mouth with lingering deliciousness. Iznogud (3801) - CROATIA - OCT 4, 2016
On tap at CBC 2016, red session. Pours black with tan head. Roasted malts, dark chocolate, coffee, vanilla, rum notes, dark fruit. Quite sweet with moderate bitterness. Oily, full bodied, alcohol well hidden. kovan666 (6) - - SEP 30, 2016 does not count
Probably best beer I’ve ever tried. Full of chocolate, coffee, almost no alcohol in taste. Extremly complex. Pure awesomeness. callmemickey (4543) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 19, 2016
Dark brown opaque body, almost no head, almost no lacing. Lots of vanilla, some cocoa, caramel, coffee, rum barrel, coconut, and anise. Medium to full bodied, slick mouthfeel, muted carbonation, fairly sweet, not overly boozy for 14%, lingering finish with some heat.

Black with a chocolatey head and good lacings. Aromas of roasted malts, bitter chocolate, coffee, vanilla, treacle, brown sugar cane, wood, toffee and a light spicey undertone develop.
Softly carbonated, smooth and full bodied. Lightly chocolatey cocoanut-vanilla - treacle sweetness with a nice roasty bitter edge. Lasting finish, rather complex and highly enjoyable. Bule (2163) - California, USA - AUG 25, 2016
12oz bottle pours a dark brown color without much head. Sickly sweet brown sugar. Nice vanilla and rum.
