4.13/5 rDev -0.2%
look: 3.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.25
Appearance: Not much of a head forms on the dark purple/brown liquid though at 15% I am not surprised; just doesn't have a particularly Belgian appearance
Smell: Brown sugar and dark fruit (dates, primarily, though some black cherry as well); the rum is quite distinct on the aroma)
Taste: Very malty, up front, with the brown sugar, dates and dark cherries paving the way for the spice cake elements to add complexity; by mid-palate, the rum arrives with a wallop, adding boozy sweetness
Mouthfeel: Full bodied with low to moderate carbonation; plenty of warmth in the gullet
Overall: Cigar City has done a nice job with the flavors and the barrel aging though the mouthfeel is a bit heavy for the style
Serving type: bottle
