First, thanks to my brother for plunking down the $$ for this beer because I was hesitant in getting it, although it’s easy enough to find. The aroma finds some subtle molasses and brown sugar, but surprisingly...no rum, no evidence of barrel aging...very much centered toward plainville. Medium sweetness on the palate, leaning a little towards the caramel profile but still a neutral sweetness like white sugar. Slightly metallic/dirty penny also picked up. No rum (was this Bacardi 151 barrels?) noticed, no woody/vanilla notes...aged in barrel’s? I would have never noticed. Overpriced and underwhelming.

22 oz. bottle shared by friends, split 4 ways. 2013 vintage. Aroma is all kinds of sweet; caramel, molasses, brown sugar and mild dark fruit. douglas88 (9408) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 4, 2014
The rum barrel is only lightly noticeable in the finish with the over the top sweet flavors. The booze is completely hidden but almost anything would be hidden in this amount of sweetness. Medium in body with soft carbonation. Perhaps this was not one to hold onto. Drink fresh.
On tap at the brewery. Pours a deep brown color with a medium white head. A sweet toffee, fruity sweet nose. The flavor is light rum, tropical notes, toffee, earthy dry malt base, a bit of caramel. Some heat. Very nice.
