Appearance: Espresso black w/ a clingy brown sugar ring of foam.

Smell: Rum barrel. OLD rum barrel. Medium roast coffee, vanilla, smoked cayenne, dark husky malt. Chocolate milk, dulce de leche as it warms.

Taste: Like a sweet aged demerara rum. Lightly roasted coffee, cocoa powder, dates, vanilla. FInishes with cayenne kick and clean smoky notes.

Mouthfeel: Light carbonation, viscous mouthfeel that is balanced by a spicy smoky finish. In one man's opinion, hides it's ABV very well despite the notable presence of rum.

This is an exceptional beer. It is possibly a 100 beer in my opinion except it lacks in a couple of areas.

Appearance: Dark as night, not much head at all, pretty much what you would expect from this style of beer. A thin ring around the base of the beer of a mild foam.

Aroma: Coffee, charred malts, chocolate, rum, some dark fruits. Very complex. Not as earthy as standard Bomb, but I imagine the rum barrel takes that away.

Taste: This is a wonderful beer, maintains the base very well. Nearly perfect in every way, maybe it is the perfectly rum barrel aged beer, but I have had others that have had more of the rum character come to the forefront and for that I am taking off the smallest of points. Its really insignificant, but I feel like I am doing too many 5's lately, not that this one doesn't deserve it, but if I could find a flaw that is it. The rum does not shine as much as I would like in the taste. For good or bad you decide its worldclass no doubt. The other thing I should say, is this has one of the best mouthfeel's and texture of beers I have ever had. It is amazing how perfectly balanced this beer is on the way it feels in the mouth.

Overall: Worldclass beer, everyone knows it, probably the best rum aged beer I have had, No. I know it is!
