Thick black pour that coats the glass like no other...
Hints of black walnut like the oil but strong strong rum flavors underlying everything.
This is the thickest, strongest, tastiest beer I think i have had in a long time! Hard to rate this cause it's so very very good!

I had this on tap at Jackie O's for the Experimental Beer Festival. There were also 16 cases for sale, with labels stating "Malt beverage brewed with walnuts and aged in rum barrels".

This was the best in show today, a really well crafted beer. It poured a dark brown/black color, opaque, with a thick tan frothy head. It smelled just delicious, cocoa and caramel and nice rum overtones. A very well defined roasted malt character, with nuttiness getting a nearly perfect complement from the barrels, rum worked well with this stout.

It tasted perfect, just exactly the flavors I wanted from this barrel aged stout. The black walnuts pair well with the chocolate malts, and rum (apparently aged in wet rum barrels for 8 months) flavor added to perfection without dominating. It has to be tasted to be believed, really very good.

Thick bodied and viscous, nice lasting flavors after every sip. Delicious.

A dark body with a tan head that disapates after a while

S-lots of rum. Like I just opened a new bottle of rum

T-rum starts out heavy up front but mellow into okay vanilla awesomeness. Wow

M-medium body and smooth

O-very, very good beer. One uos the Base beer in a very good way

Bottle 50/192. Big thanks to beace for the hook up! Sampled some at the brewpub over the 2010 Thanksgiving weekend but felt taking notes inappropriate. Glad to have the opportunity to crack a bottle and share with some fellow BA's at the 2010 Bullfrog Holiday Party.

A-Rich, viscous, deep black with a thin tan head that reduced to a thin ring and left moderate lace. An invigorating swirl left flecks of foam and a coating of oil like liquid slowly sliding back into the pool below.

S-Shazam! Impressive notes of alcohol, deep, dark roasted malt and tannic astringency. This reminded me of those delicious rum cakes from Bermuda.

T-Incredible complexity with flavours of roasted malt, dark chocolate, fresh crushed walnuts, sweet vanilla and a subtle, yet intoxicating, blast of rum alcohol burn, Finishes roasty, earthy and dry.

M-Medium to medium-heavy bodied with a viscous, oily slickness. The smooth factor on this one is off the charts. Carbonation is quite low making this one more like liquid velvet,

D-I could reach Nirvana tonight drinking this one! One mighty fine sipping brew for sure. I bet if you drank enough of this one it could cure your asthma too! An impressive brew that Brad should be VERY proud of!
