After having Premeditated Murder, I'm so excited to try this one!

Murky reddish brown color (brownish red?) Nice lacing, very thick, head is minimal though.

So much going on in the nose that it was confusing at first! Lots of toffee, caramel, vanilla, super fruity, a little boozy heat.

Same kind of depth when tasting this one. Just so much going on! Marshmellow, vanilla, toffee, caramel, sweet, ripe, tropical fruit, fig newtons, rum.. It's quite an experience!

This beer is so full bodied, so thick, creamy and smooth as can be. Coats your mouth leaving all those great flavors lingering with you after each sip.

I can't believe I got lucky enough to try this one, and to have one of the good bottles out there! With such mixed reviews, I gotta say that I'd have a hard time believing that someone who rated this poorly had the same beer that I got to experience. This is, without a doubt, one of the most flavorful, complex beers I've yet to try, and it's made a lasting impression that sets the bar for excellence. Absolutely incredible.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

375ml bottle poured into a tulip

A- very dark red with a slight head that fades really fast. Nice lacing

S- As soon as you pour it and put your nose up to the glass it just hits you like an open rum bottle, in a good way

T- Again, huge rum here and it feels so good! It's sweet and spicy at the same time with hints of vanilla and toffee on the finish. So smooth

M- you would never guess this was so high ABV, it drinks so easily and there is no alcohol burn. Great mouthfeel and feels even better going down.

O- this beer is awesome, glad I got a bunch of bottles before they ran out. Can't wait to see how it holds up with a little age on it
