Poured into a shaker pint.

A: Poured like a soda. A lighter Dr. Pepper brown with a fast fading head and no appreciable lacing to speak of. Big chunky bubbles.

S: Smell was outstanding. Toffey, nutty and rum notes all over the aroma. I was impressed by the smell and very hopeful for a great flavor from this beer.

T: Sour! I was taken aback because I didn't expect any sour notes from the beer. Definite Acetic acid taste from overuse of adjuncts (corn sugar) or liquid extract. You want to taste the rum and the wood from the barrels but its just overwhelmed by sour. Some nutty, bready gets through from classic malts but that's about it. Disappointed.

M: Medium bodied with huge chunky bubbles. Drinkable but not as smooth and creamy as it could be. Probably force carbonated and would've perhaps been better bottle conditioned or brewed with cream ale yeast.

O: Definitely drinks more like a Kentucky Common than a traditional brown ale. It would've completely fit the Kentucky Common style if it had a creamier head. Being as it wasn't billed as such, I have to give this one a fail.

poured 22oz bottle into chalice.

A - Very dark gorgeous ruby/brown with a thin off white head. No lacing.

S - Whoa, I can smell the rum and alcohol up front. Hard to find the malty brown ale beneath. Sugar, subtle banana taffy, and maybe a hint of coconut.

T - A bit harsh with overpowering alcohol and rum. I wanted to taste the smooth malty brown with some nuttiness, but it is hard to find. Odd aftertaste.

M - Light bodied with okay carbonation and kinda rough. Not very smooth.

O - Well, this beer is okay, not what I hoped it would be. I think the base beer needs some work or the rum barrels ruined it. It's not bad, but it could be so much better. I was intrigued since I really enjoy brown ales and there are few that are aged barrels. I'd skip this one.
