Got this one from Doodler in a recent box. Cheers man! Drunk right after regular BOMB.

From a bottle into a snifter.
Green wax
BOMB aged in Rum barrels

APPEARANCE: Muddy black pour yields a one finger, foamy, medium tan head with very good retention. Jet black body with almost no carbonation. Slowly fades to a full foam cap, then a wisp and ring. A simple ring remains but leaves no lacing down the glass. Less head and less carbonation than the base beer.

SMELL: Everything from the regular BOMB is there plus a touch of rum. The adjuncts are slightly milder to make room for the rum though. A touch milder then, with coffee, cocoa, vanilla and chilies, with a bit of rum and oak as well. A touch milder than the base beer, but really, really wonderful. Love this.

TASTE: Rum and vanilla notes up front. A touch of milk chocolate into the swallow with some chili heat as well. Bold and lingering finish of rum, oak, vanilla, some coconut, bitter coffee and cocoa nibs, as well as some well measured heat again. The rum barrels add a touch of spirit and coconut to the already complex base beer. This works really well. Delicious.

PALATE: Similar to the base beer, but a bit lighter and less creamy. Medium body and slightly higher levels of carbonation. Semi-creamy on the palate, goes down fine with a bit of a scratch at the swallow and finishes slightly mouth-coating. Less chili heat and booze, though still a touch too light and carbonated for the style.

OVERALL: Excellent again. The rum barrel has kind of found room at the expense of some of the base beer, but it's excellently balanced and complex. This and the base beer make an absolutely wonderful pair; top class stuff in my books. Cheers Doodler. Highly recommended.

The rum notes are a perfect balance to the already amazing stout that has long had my attention.
