I would recommend letting this warm up as it improves at room temperature.

The beer offers a rush of spicy rum and sweetness, that almost does not play well with the rich chocolately sweetness that the beer already has. However, the barrel character smooths out the beer's bitterness slightly.

While I much preferred the Marker's Mark, this was a wonderful attempt at rum barrel aging an already fine brew.

Had on tap in a taster size tulip glass.

Opaque black with a thin head. Toffee, chocolate, burnt sugar, toasted oak on the nose. Taste has big sweet rummy molasses, semisweet chocolate, oak, vanilla, roasted malt and espresso. I really like the molasses contribution from the rum barrel. Thick but not too thick, ends roasty and kind of dry.

Good stout to start with, and well aged in the rum barrel. Very nice.
