Pours black no light getting through at the bar at least when held to outside porch. Head is small bar pour size coco in color with some light lacing left behind.

Aroma is roasted malts more chocolate then coffee notes. Fairly sweet almost lactose like sweetness, almost. Some light rum notes might be adding to the sweetness personally consider rum on the sweet side myself.

Taste is like the nose roasted malts good chocolate notes light coffee some warming from the alcohol that blends very well. Like the rum barrels maybe because its different more mellow the bourbon but adds to the sweetness of the stout. Some pepper like notes in the finish along with spicy alcohol notes.

Mouthfeel is big medium seems little light for 12% stout but maybe it leeched some alcohol from the rum barrels.

Overall enjoyed this and would have again think I like the rum not overpowering but adds some flavor. Solid beer worth a try. 40 IBU OG 1.099 according to the caulk board.

High hopes when I see a rum barrel aged beer, but this was a bit off. The oak took charge, and in a big and bold way. The base beer seems like it would be great with a little less barrel character, but the oak dominates the other flavors. coffee chocolate, and rum are there, but playing second fiddle to the oak. For a big boozy beer, this is it, but for a more refined barrel character, look elsewhere.

A: This poured opaque black with thick tan head.
S: It smelled like sweet raisins and brown sugar, with some honey wheat and oak.
T: It tasted like honey wheat and toffee, with some raisin and brown sugar and oak. It had a smooth sweet aftertaste with some alcohol warming.
M: It was thick and chewy with a little fine carbonation. Great slick body.
D: This was more like a dark rum barleywine, with little stout character. But the scent and taste and body were all fantastic. The finish was smooth, with some heat, so perfect to sip. Would age well I'm sure, but doesn't need it. Excellent brew.
