Big thanks to Jeff for this one. 750ml capped bottle into a Cigar City snifter.

Pours a rich, 1 finger dark mocha colored head with great retention. Beer is opaque and pitch black. Lacing is thick and layered with excellent stick. An awesome and menacing looking brew.

Nose is a light booziness mixed with chocolate, roasted malt, liquorice and fudge. Pretty mellow.

Opens sweet and sticky. Molasses, dark fruit, cocoa powder, chocolate, fudge and brownie. Slightly bitter chocolate in the middle with some more cocoa powder and a touch of ashiness. End is molasses, wood and some fruity sweetness. Aftertaste is dark fruit and more cocoa. This is really good.

Medium to full bodied with low carbonation. Slick and oily in the mouth and goes down smooth and rich. Messy finish with a surprisingly clean aftertaste. Really nice.

Really an awesome barrel-aged Imperial Stout and certainly one of the better Rum-aged beers I've had. Pretty under-the-radar and definitely worth seeking out.

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Black body. Nice khaki head. Great retention and great lacing inside the glass. Chunky collar.

Smell - Very boozy. Rum. Sharp oak. Chocolate. Kinda fruity.

Taste - Fudgy. Sharp oak. Rum and bright fruity sweetness in equal portions. Very boozy. The wood is almost harsh.

Mouthfeel - Medium heavy. Boozy. Medium carbonation.

Overall - It's a little tough to drink, but very flavorful. Rum barrels never quite do it for me.
