look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Black. Small khaki head. Some surface wisps.

Smell - Black patent malt is strong. Minimal sweetness. I don't get much rum barrel at all, if any. Very slight fruit.

Taste - The fruit is a little more prevalent. Oak is present. Extremely roasty. Slightly sweet.

Mouthfeel - Harsh bitterness. Medium carbonation.

Overall - Where's the rum barrel? C'mon now.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Pours opaque black with razor thin head. Pretty lifeless appearance. Nose starts with a strong and astringent rum character paired with light chocolate and some wood. Smells a bit oxidized. Taste is one note with this rum character dominating the palate. The base stout just does not hold up to the barrel treatment in this case. Mouthfeel is a tad thin for style with mellow carbonation and a slight boozy heat at the finish. This beer was overall pretty forgettable. I had the pirate bomb immediately following this beer, which was proof that prairie knows how to use a rum barrel, just didn't work for this beer.
