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.
