4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz. No head (that’s what she said!) Booze, vanilla, coconut, and wet cocoa on the nose. Dark fruits...sweetly roasted? Rum, coconut husk, hints of leather, sweetness, godsdamn this is a keeper! Boozey finish, lingers. Somehow a bit light even though this bottle says 12%. And by light just not so thick. Creamy.
Pours a dark, oily black, with smallish, tan head. Aroma has dark fruits and booze. Flavor is chocolate, coffee, vanilla, and booze (strong rum element). Very tasty, after-dinner sort of a beer. davidezdonz (668) - Hong Kong, HONG KONG - MAR 5, 2018
A 12 fl. oz. bottle with a Julian bottled on date of 18815, meaning that it was bottled on 7th July 2015. Poured into a snifter glass. It was black in colour with a very thin tanned head that dissipated quickly and left pretty much no lacing. Aromas of rum, molasses, chocolate, coffee and roasted malts with a light char. Tastes similar to the aroma with sweet rum, molasses, chocolate, raisin, prunes and booze. Creamy, medium to full bodied with low carbonation. Overall the flavours were nice and interesting although its on the edge of being too sweet and boozy for me to fully relax and enjoy. AndyW68 (1699) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - FEB 24, 2018
As. Lose to a 5 as I have come. Beautiful. Near black pour. Aroma is rum, vanilla plumb and a little cocoa. Taste follows nose. I say I don't like sweet, but it is sweet and incredible. Love it. JaBier (8518) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - FEB 17, 2018
Bottle purchased at Kenny Road Market. Pours black with a medium tan head. Nose of malt, chocolate, vanilla and rum. Malt and chocolate flavor with vanilla character before a boozy rum finish. Nice. ajnepple (7739) - Lakewood, Colorado, USA - FEB 6, 2018
12 oz bottle shared from Tipsy's Liquor World. Thick black appearance with a light brown head. Aroma of chocolate malt, mild oak, roasted coffee, light vanilla, light rum and a hint of coconut. Similar flavor, rich, dark and moderately sweet with pleasant rum barrel complexities. Full body with soft carbonation and a smooth finish. Nice.

Aroma of rum, vanilla and bourbon. Taste is the same with a smokey, tobacco finish. Excellent beer!

355ml bottle (thx, Rick P.!). Pours an almost black with a weak dark beige head. Aroma is tons of chocolate, with rum and barrel notes. Taste is moderate to high sweet with rum, vanilla and chocolate notes, moderately boozy. I would prefer less sweetness is this, but anyways it is very nice stuff, especially taking into account how much of chocolate in it! weihenweizen (4375) - Charleston, West Virginia, USA - SEP 21, 2017
Refrigerated 12 oz. brown bottle poured into a glass. Black with beige head. Aroma is chocolate, medium/thick body, low carbonation, and little lacing. Taste is chocolate, rum, coconut, and vanilla. koleminer20 (4385) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - JUL 14, 2017
Shared at the Prairie Everything Dark/Kill Your Liver Extravaganza at Jeff’s House on July 1. 12 oz bottle. 2016 vintage. The pour is a nice light black with a thick ring of dark brown head and a lack of lace as it falls away. The aroma is heavy chocolate and rum barrels. There is a light vanilla and a great dark fruitiness to it. Holy lord. The flavor is just as good. The chocolate and rum balance beautifully with a nice vanilla add and a fruitiness that I am surprised with. This is like a rum soaked chocolate with just a touch of spiciness. The mouth feel is medium bodied with a soft carbonation and a lingeringly boozy and spicy chocolate rum. I’m a big fan. 9 4 9 4 17
