Thanks to Drucifer for handing this off at Darkness Day, as I continue my quest to consume everything wheatwine. In a barrel? Please, thank you. 22 oz. red-fist bottle split with my wife.
Pour is dark orange brown with just enough carbonation to convince me it's not carrot juice. Nose speaks to rum & caramel, though it's not of the strong or persuasive variety.
Revolution 3rd Year Beer states that it's aged in rum barrels. Really? Tastes more like rum aged in beer barrels. Hot, luscious rum takes a big bite out of my palate; beautiful. Vanilla, caramel, watery sugar, big sweet malts, with the wheat only forming a distant backdrop that might be overlooked if it weren't part of the title. Sticky, thick. Good walleye, I could drink this all night.
One off? Too bad. One of the best rum barrel-aged beers I've had to date. Revolution! Make this again! An excellent beer that breathes on elite.

22 oz. bottle poured into a snifter.
Appearance - Deep amber. Nice white head. Medium collar. Some surface wisps.
Smell - Rum. Oaky. A bit of citrus. Caramel.
Taste - Caramel. Sharp oak. Intense oak, really. Rum comes back in a boozy finish.
Mouthfeel - Very boozy. Medium heavy. Way too oaky.
Overall - It's too oaky and the rum doesn't contribute as much as other liquors would.

Brown to burgundy body with a soft, light beige head. The aroma offers booze, sugars, raisins, toffee, oak. Sweet breads and fruit soaked in booze. Maybe some cotton candy. Apples and rum in the finish. Lots of big flavor, but perhaps this would mellow out a bit with age. Overall, pretty good.
