375ml bottle from the 2014 release. Poured into a snifter 11/19/2014.

A- Dark black body, oily and thick. Half finger offwhite head, minimal retention time, no lacing. Has nice legs on it. Pretty much looks like what the name implies. [4.25]

S- Sweet rum, dark fruit, oak, dark chocolate. Not particularly complex, but for a rum-barrel aged beer, the rum really plays nicely with the rest of the base beer. One of the few rum-barrel aged beers where this is the case. [4.25]

F- Smooth milk chocolate, rum sweetness, dark fruits, oak, dark chocolate, finishing with a mild piney bitterness. Nice complexity, and as in the nose, the rum plays nicely with the rest of the beer. This definitely works. [4.25]

M- Thick bodied, on the lower end of carbonation for the style. Smooth, slick and sticky. This is fairly nice with a slightly over-bittered finish. [4.25]

O- This was pretty impressive in how the rum was so strong but played very nicely with the rest of the beer. Nice complexity and mouthfeel as well. This is a more than solid stout to try. [4.25]

Final score: 4.25

2014 Bottle from Joe. Thanks buddy. Pours viscous black into the tulip with almost not head, with just a creamy espresso foam colored head settling around the top edges. Rich aroma of molasses, anise, chocolate, raisins, and definite rum, though not boozy smelling. Flavor is sweet vanilla molasses, lots of anise, a bit of rum spice, booze, chocolate covered raisins. Medium thick mouthfeel with lowish carbonation, and not too dry. A nice dessert beer that is in the wheelhouse of CCB's recent Da Un Beso. Very similar beers, with this one coming with a bit more heft and booze. Good stuff.
