4.28/5 rDev +4.4%
Had this one at Hollingshead, in Orange. Had to choose between this one and DFH 120 minute.
This beer was great. The vanilla and oak from the rum barrels really came through, along with all the malty goodness. Boozy upfront, and very dry with brown sugar and caramel on the back end. Small amount of head, that didn't last long. The 9% abv was perfect, not too much. Overall, I would say I am a fan of this beer, and would encourage it's consumption.

4.1/5 rDev 0%
On-tap at Oakquinox
Pours amber in color with an off-white head. A really nice rum aroma to this. Tons of wood and vanilla followed by a healthy dose of brown sugar, caramel, and toffee. A hint of alcohol on the finish. The flavor is full of sweet rum and sugar flavors with a light spice and a light fruitiness. Moderate wood flavor and plenty of vanilla. Maybe a little bit oxidized and a little bit of heat.

On tap at Old Grove. This was aged exclusively in Three Sheets Rum barrels. I heard it was in the barrels for 9 months
A: Reddish brown with a finger of beige froth.
S: Rich toffee, bread, caramel, and brown sugar accompany earth and grapefruit. Rum is pronounced and I get light vanilla and big oak. Date, prune, apple, and alcohol are evident. The nose is stunning when it warms (it was served very cold). The rum really shines.
T: Sweet toffee with notes of date and prune. Candied sugar meets a big alcohol kick. This has a pronounced earthy hop profile that lends an upper moderate bitterness. Rum is pervasive and unmistakable. The bitterness is aggressive and the booze is palate numbingly hot, but the flavors are excellent.
M: Upper medium body with medium carbonation. The mouthfeel is sticky with a lot of warming.
Overall: Very good but very boozy. If this were to mellow out it would be amazing. I'd guess this picked up a bit of ABV from the barrel.
