Big thanks to msgraves for this huge want, thanks man! I really enjoyed the regular,

2011 bottle number 85 of 206 poured into 2 eclipse snifters.

A- looking real good, somewhat still with a small white head that doesn't last long.

S- woa this one is huge on the alc, it's so heavy it covers up everything else. Smells more like tequila/ cheap rum. I'm not liking this too much.

T- taste is better but still not to my liking. The base comes through here covered with that same tequila like rum flavor. No sign of walnuts like the base had but the roasted stout is there.

M- mouthfeel is average for a ba stout, not very much carbonation and somewhat thick body. It's alright, works well to cover the mouth, including that tequila alc taste

O- not sure what happened here, I've had ccb Neils and loved it. This one was much different than that, and I dont think it worked well with the rum, I can see this base better in whiskey, brandy or bourbon. I was wondering if I had a bad bottle or maybe it wasn't aging well (6 months) but reading some other reviews it sounds like this is how it's supposed to taste (atleast this batch anyway) so I guess it's one of those cases that its just not for me.

Bomber provided by Claaark13 in a trade a while back. Thanks heaps for the stuff man!

From a bomber into a snifter
Vintage: 2011
Bottle 94 of 206
Drunk right after the base beer

APPEARANCE: A thicker, dark black pour produces a one finger, medium looking, fizzy, mocha colored head with good retention. Black body with no carbonation evident. Head slowly fades to a good wisp and ring that remain until the end and leave falling dots of lacing as the glass empties. Relatively thick and black, but the head was a little too obnoxious. Exactly the same as the base beer.

SMELL: Very nice stuff, and the barrel is wonderfully potent. Rum, milk chocolate and vanilla are there for sure. Some roasted malts, smoky notes and hints of licorice in there as well. Bold enough with hints of the base beer showing through. Nice stuff.

TASTE: Some roasted notes up front and quickly washed away by a big rum barrel. Lots of rum, milk chocolate and loads of vanilla on the palate, as well as some well measured boozy notes. Aftertaste is bold and lingering with smoky notes, roasted malt and a touch of bitter, dark chocolate form the base beer, as well as lots of rum and barrel notes. Very flavorful, enjoyable, and the base beer isn’t totally dominated by the rum and vanilla flavors from the barrel. Full on.

PALATE: Medium body and medium carbonation. Not creamy enough, unfortunately. A little light and watery on the palate, goes down fine and finishes slightly sticky on the palate. Suffers from the same watery palate as the base beer, which holds it back a bit.

OVERALL: It’s too bad the feel isn’t quite up to par, as the nose and flavor profile on this one are world class. The barrel is potent, interesting and flavorful, and the base beer is strong enough to play a nice roll in the flavor profile. Certainly a tasty brew that I’d love to have again. Perhaps a future batch will provide the feel this beer really needs to take it to that extra leve? Only time will tell. Thanks again for sending this one over Claaark13. We really enjoyed this one.

Shared by Jeffo. Thanks, man.

bottle 94/206.

A hard pour in a snifter revealed a fairly thick stout with a nice one centimeter mocha colored head. Minor lacing.

A smell i do remember from back in the day when I would actually drink rum. So rum barrel present on the nose together with some dark fruits, vanilla and dark malts

Bold and complex flavors. The but falvors from the base beers shines through. Also picked up enough of the roasted malts and sweetness.

The mouthfeel is a lot lighter then expected by the mean looking pour. It's seems a bit watery and the body is just not full enough to make this beer excellent. Also found the carbonation a tad too much for the style.

Highly recomended!!!

Thanks Jeff for bringing this for random beer night!
