Phenomenal beer. Smooth and creamy mouthfeel, the rum barrels added wonderful fragrance to the beer. Taste was spot on. I let the bottle sit for 5-6 months before opening and will wait on my second bottle for another 6 months or so.

A little thin and boozy not as complex as others in my flight. You can taste the rum and it drinks a bit hot.

Pours like motor oil with some decent legs clinging to the glass edge. Nice subtle rum nose. Amazing smooth silky draw. Well balanced BA stout.

Served from a 750mL bottle into a snifter.

Viscous and oily in color and appearance, a chewy cappuccino-frothy head forms. It's substantial in height and mass and lingers for quite some time over the oil slick body. Beautiful. 5

Barrel-heavy aroma offers oak, fresh tobacco, sweet vanilla and caramel. Light bourbon notes and faint booze and chocolate. Maybe too much barrel aroma and not enough base beer but it smells great. 4.25

The barrel presence is pronounced on the palate, giving the tobacco, oak and bourbon-y spice the nose had. There's also a noticeable sweet and sugary flavor that is in fact subtler than the booze and barrels. The finish especially lingers with the earthy taste of barrels and cane sugar. The deeper I get into this beer the more it starts tasting if coconut. 4.25

Smooth, creamy and medium- to heavy-bodied mouthfeel with a slightly residual sweetness feel. The booze can feel potent or mellow from sip to sip but never becomes offensive. 4.25

Just a day earlier I ran through a number of BA beers with friends, many which had big-time hype or world-class reputations, and this tastes on par with the best of those.
