A big thanks to Nick for the kind gift.

Poured an almost pitch black cloud color with 2-to-3 fingers of tan head that dissipated almost immediately. Minimal lacing on the sides of the glass. Below average retention all the way down.

Smelled a mix of a lot of different flavors. Got coconut, crayon, toast, wood, vanilla, rum, dark chocolate, caramel, toffee (a bit like Rolo’s candy), Cherry Coke and some more rum.

Tasted much better than the smell. Got chocolate, dark chocolate, wood, smooth rum, dry coconut, crayon, almost burnt toast, Rolo’s candy, caramel and toffee.

Medium body. Creamy-to-sticky texture. Average carbonation. Long, smooth, warming finish. Tastes strong, but not 17.09 percent strong.

After starting off fairly weak, this beer really came on. I enjoyed it very much. Would love to get my hands on it again.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

I started off the beer cellar in my new house with this bad-boy (purchased mid-June 2013). After a day of spring cleaning, I deserve a treat!

A - Dark and syrupy with small coconut "floaties" . Has the same color and clarity as grade-b (dark) pure maple syrup. No apparent carbonation

S - Burnt sugar, maple syrup, raisins, prunes, residual sweetness, slight spice (nutmeg/cinnamon), and a little booze. I don't detect any rum-specifc qualities to the nose, but it certainly has a barrel aged characteristic to it.

T - Barrel characteristics and sweetness (almost cloying sweetness) dominate the palate. Caramel, burnt sugar, molasses flavors, dried figs, raisins, prunes. I don't get any specific coconut flavor but there is a slight "nuttiness" about it. It reminds me of the caramel sauce that is served with flan. Given that this is 17% (!!!), I'm amazed it doesn't have a more boozy flavor.

M - Viscous. Like drinking maple syrup.

O - I like this, really I do, but it's extremely sweet - honestly too much for me. It reminds me of Avery's Rumpin but with even more sweetness. Best shared with a few friends.
