Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: MasterSki on 08-07-2013

This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

Forgotten Island is aged in Appleton rum barrels, originating from Jamaica. This distillery makes the oldest barrel-aged rum in the world. The barrel lends notes of vanilla, molasses, orange peel, cocoa, brown sugar, nutmeg, hazelnut, apricot and peach. This plethora of flavors and aromas from the rum barrels intermingles with banana, clove, cinnamon, fig, plum and brown sugar aromatics and flavors from the quadrupel, creating a crescendo of elegance in a long flavorful finale.

Looked ok in the chalice. Smelled sweet, like candied figs, fruit cake.
Taste? Oh jeez, DDB was right, what a sugar Bomb. An overly sweet mess of a beer, maybe good fresh, but certainly not now.
Too bad, I really wanted this beer to be good. The description is so good, the product, not so much.
