look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

375 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Deep orange amber body. Small fleeting white head. Medium collar.

Smell - Rum barrel is strong. Oak. Vanilla. Mild acidity. Smells kinda musty.

Taste - Rum is still strong, but it's got a lot more sourness going on. Kinda vinegary. Some grainy toast and caramel malt. Sharp rum aftertaste and some oak.

Mouthfeel - High carbonation. Medium heavy.

Overall - Intense flavors. It's overly intense in certain respects, but good.

375ml C&C bottle poured into poured into wine stem.

Appearance: light to medium brown bodied beer with thick cap of white head.

Smell: nicely balanced nose. Malty and light tart. Rum barrel on the back end that is mellow; its buttery and slightly spicy rum.

Taste: light tartness with a nice malt profile of a oud bruin without the fruity profile. mild funk. Rum on the back end just like the nose. It also has the same qualities that I picked up with my nose its both buttery and slightly spicy rum.

Mouthfeel: medium bodied sour with low carbonation. This beer seem pretty light for having almost 11 % abv. Not a lot of biting sourness, so one person could easily drink this themselves.

Overall: This was interesting and different. Allagash really made unique beer here.
