330ml bottle poured into a Troubadour tulip glass

Look: Dark, coppery red/brown with a slightly off-white head.

Smell: In a word, sweet. Burnt sugar and demerara rum predominate, with some toffee/caramel in the background. The rum is definitely more apparent once the beer has warmed up a bit.

Taste: Rum from start to finish. That's pretty much it - the taste certainly doesn't follow the smell, since the rum notes trample all over pretty much everything. There's a definite hint of alcohol/spirit in the finish.

Feel: Pretty thin, all things considered - it feels just like a bog-standard heavy with a shot of dark rum dumped in it. Not much in the way of carbonation, either, which may not be a bad thing.

Overall: Disappointing - a couple of friends rate this quite highly but I'm finding it difficult to see where they're coming from. There's a fair bit of depth in the smell but the taste is completely overhauled by the spirit/rum flavours, meaning that ultimately this is a bit one-dimensional. Worth trying, but not really worth the bother of actively seeking it out IMO.

Truly wonderful, a definite beer for a special occasion. The rum finish is outstanding, definitely has the spice of a Demerara rum like OVD.
