look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A - Pours a cloudy brownish-red with a finger of frothy off-white head. The head fades down at a normal pace leaving behind some lacing.

S - Aroma is a mix of sweet caramel malts, toasted coconut, brown and residual sugars, oak, vanilla, molasses, with a touch of dark fruit and booze.

T - Starts off with a mix of rich sweet caramel malts, brown sugar, toasted coconut, and vanilla. Through the middle, some oak and rum comes through with some more residual sugars, molasses, and a hint of dark fruit. The finish is a mix of sweet caramelized malts, brown sugar, toasted coconut, oak, vanilla, rum, and a bit of booze.

M - Medium-full bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels smooth with a sweet and warming finish.

D - Very drinkable. Nice imperial brown ale with some great balance and complexity from the rum barrel aging.

a very clear darkish brown with lighter brown highlights thick foamy head, very light lacing.

smooth and spicy, lil bit of cinnamon and sweet candied sugar. not much else.

taste is much more roasty, and somewhat clean. still has a sweetness to it, but much more subdued. faintly getting some piney hops in the background. Not super amazing but great for what it is.

mouthfeel is quite excellent. smooth and light and lightly bitter. dryish finish and a bit of slickness to it.

super drinkable.

awesome beer, a bit too expensive for a more or less simple beer. Still really good.

22 ounce bottle Limited Edition No. 10 Spring 2013. Pours nicely with a good full head. Very dark amber. Nice taste, not as full body as I expected based on appearance but a fine smooth beverage. I liked the nice mild aftertaste the best. At 9.5 ABV this is a very good beer and would recommend although a little pricey. Slight update, just had my second 22 ounce bottle from the Spring 2013 stock I purchased that was date coded March 2013. Drank the second one today July 1 2013 from same stock that I purchased in April 2013. This second beer aged in our house in a comfortable environment. Even better than the high rating I gave before, but will not alter my ranking since it was already high and the beer is still pricey. BUT GET SOME AT LEAST IT IS GREAT!
