4.11/5  rDev -2.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

A - Pours black with a bit of brown on the edges and a light brown one finger head.

S - The rum is really showing out here. A little sweetness and light smokiness.

T - Taste is rum heavy and the nose characteristics are just amplified.

M - For the abv, it's a thin bodied stout to me. The carbonation is low. A little alcohol burn is coming through as well.

O - Probably one of the best rum barrel aged beers I've had. I like that the smokiness is there, but not overwhelming.
