Rum is a bit overbearing. This is like a good cologne or perfume ruined by someone who puts too much on. Rum taste should be complimentary and enhancing, but in this case it overtakes the beer. I like Evo, but this one didn't work that well. I should have let it migrate instead of interrupting its flight.

A: This poured a nearly opaque dark copper with quickly dissipating tan head.
S: It smelled like sweet pear and candied walnuts with some fresh oak and spiced nutmeg and fig.
T: It tasted like sweet candied fig and honey, with some fresh oak and tropical banana and spicey nutmeg. It had a clean and sweet aftertaste.
M: It was oily with fine natural carbonation. Great slick body.
D: This was a great rum barrel ale. The scent and taste showed the rum beautifully, and the body was fantastic. The finish was smooth with fairly well hidden alcohol, so it wasn't difficult to drink. Might age well too, but doesn't need it. Impressive brew.

Opened this the other night with a buddy. Poured a nice golden brown in a tulip glass. Low carbonation in the 2013. Not sure if that was the plan, but taste is flat. The rum smell is a little overriding and it comes through in the taste of the beer. Evo is one of my favorite breweries on the east coast. Won't be repurchasing this one, but will always buy the rest of the Evo portfolio of beers.

Year: 2013
Bottle: 576 of 1500

A - cloudy golden brown with plenty of fizzy bubbles but only a trace of head.
S - sweet golden raisins and caramel in a subdued rum cake.
T - golden raisin biscuits sweetened with caramel and a touch of bittering agents overlayed with slight rum flavor.
M - smooth but syrupy
O - well hidden abv but hidden by a load of sweetness that stays with you throughout the experience.
A dubbel and an American strong ale blended with an emphasis on sweet.

Spring 2013, bottle 1100 of 1500

A: amber-brown opaque with minimal head and only a lite lacing.
S: smell of sweet raisin or plum, slightly woody
T: sweet, little sugary, raisin. Can detect the hint if rum, and the oak from the barrel ( I noted a slight smokey tinge, but no idea why)
M: tingle on tongue from alcohol, sweetness lingers
O: trying to rate more on "style", but to me, this beer is overall too sweet. Fine for a one-time later-in-the night sipping beer, but I wouldn't need a second (luckily the limited nature won't force me into a decision).
