A: A vigorous pour is required for head. A nice lace remained after the head dissipated. The beer is a very dark brown in color and no light could be seen through the opaque liquid as I held it up.

S: The smell is very rich. Strong notes of the spices (Nutmeg and cinnamon stood out to me) and rum barrels. My only complaint would be that these smells overpower any hint of the malt smell I love in porters.

T: The beer opens with a very dark, rich and strong malt flavor for a second before the spices kick in for the body. Like the smell I detected strong notes of cinnamon and nutmeg. The finish tastes strongly of good rum and has some alcohol notes. You can tell that this has been aged in rum barrels.

M: The mouthfeel is rich and creamy without much carbonation.

O: I can understand why people might not like this beer. It is very strong and the advertised flavors are powerful. I let a friend have a sip and her only response was "No." I think they went a little overboard with the spices and the barrel aging and lost some of the malty porter goodness that I love.

That being said, this beer is exactly what it advertised on the label and I can't knock it. An Imperial Porter with spices aged in rum barrels. If you like beers that overwhelm the palate with brash flavors and little subtlety or if that description sounds as good to you as it did to me you will probably like this beer. I would have it again if offered, but think the $30 price tag for a bomber is a bit steep for the quality.

Beer was served from a 750 ml bomber into a Blind Pig Mug.

Bottle acquired in a trade. Thanks to another great trade with Peoria Ryan, who makes the trek out to the FFF brewery from time to time.

Ha, wow, this is a strange one! The earlier reviews say it all. It smells like a cinnamon stick, rolled in some pumpkin spice, and boozy. There's something really, seriously tweaked in the nose - alarm bells are ringing - but you're still not close to prepared for how tart it is, edged with the rum. It tastes like a weird halloween rum sour. There's nothing particularly wrong with the appearance or mouthfeel, but it's a matter of guilt by association - sorry fellas, this pirate ship is sinking!
