COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Floyd D’Rue is one half of a collaboration between The Bruery and 3 Floyds Brewing Co. Both breweries being known throughout the kingdom of beer geeks for larger than life barrel aged beers, it was only fitting that this brew would be something of a similar scale. Working together to create a brand new recipe for an imperial porter at 14.7% ABV, the beer was then laid to rest in rum barrels for one year. Going with a "spiced rum" theme, additions of vanilla bean, orange zest, cinnamon, cloves, allspice, star anise, nutmeg and fresh ginger were added just prior to bottling. The result is a fantastically robust ale with hints of citrus, rum, chocolate, molasses, exotic spices and toasty oak.

Pour is a toasty and dark purplish color. Nice little head on it that fades out. We drank it over 3 years since it was bottled. Nice intense molasses, deep chocolate and cookie, herbal and spicy nose, extremely nutty and deep. Taste follows, there's a bit of everything here and the lactose is noticeable too. Quite the beer, hits heavy, and is something of legend.

JohnnyJ (5569) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 15, 2016
On draft at the brewery. Dark black pour, with a thin head. Milk chocolate, rum, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg, oak, boozy, and sweet malt. Big, chewy, and sweet. Not bad for a rum barrel aged.

hopscotch (11177) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - FEB 4, 2016
Bottle... Pours black with a small, creamy, khaki head. Smells like a marriage of Captain Morgan spiced rum and chocolate - loads of vanilla bean and cola nut. Full-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and tickling carbonation. The flavor features a moderate measure of burnt bitterness and tons of boozy, sweet rum and vanilla. Boozy, bittersweet, toasty finish. Thanks to landhoney for sharing this delicious brew!

On tap at The Bruery. Almost black in appearance. Strong, spicy rum notes in the nose with vanilla, oak, zesty fruit, toasted malt, licorice, light molasses and fall spices. Full bodied with a light boozy finish. Good.

3.7
RafeAU (629) - Los Angeles, California, USA - DEC 23, 2015
Taster on tap at the bruery. Overall numerical rating only. Bourbon, dry, vanilla, nutmeg, could use more sweetness

3.9
Dogbrick (13411) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - SEP 3, 2015
Sample at the Inventory Reduction Beer Tasting on 08/08/2015. Deep dark brown color with a medium thick khaki head that recedes gradually. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. The aroma consists of oak, chocolate, malt and spice. Full-bodied with flavors of oaky bourbon, roast malt, dark chocolate and cinnamon. The finish is sweet and boozy with a spiced rum/bourbon and malt aftertaste. Pretty good beer all around.
