Solid beer. I loved the rum barrel taste. As much as I love bourbon barrel beers, it was nice to get a different type of barrel for once that my beer had been aged in. What really kept this beer from being great though was something was missing on the backend of each sip. I expected something more-a nice roasty stout taste or even a hot alcohol burn. What I got though was a little bit of a thin taste. Still very good though.

Overly woody without much of a rum presence

This is easily one of the best smelling rum barrel aged imperial stouts I have ever had, I just wish the taste followed the smell. The taste was a little lacking in mouthfeel and even had a slight metallic taste. This was a good beer overall

Tasted 27 November 2014, Thanksgiving Day, reviewed from notes. I've been wanting to try this one for a while.

Pours black, thick, and viscous. About one finger of chewy mocha head, dark tan.

Smells like dark rum, molasses, some char, cocoa, coffee. All kinds of stuff. Everything you might expect from an imperial stout, plus those dark rum characteristics. Some slightly bready notes, too, that are a little surprising in this mix.

Taste is super rich; molasses is probably the most prominent flavor, though it fades out. Molasses and dark rum. So much flavor, though. So deep and rich, little variations playing off each other like a fine musical composition.

Feel is thick, chewy, and heavy. Carbonation is there, but the beer is so thick that it just feels like it's foaming. Flavors stick around, yielding waves of chocolate, molasses, char, rum.

Wow. This is a killer beer. There's so much flavor. For how strong it is, the alcohol is really well hidden. Fantastic, and I wish I could drink it more often.
