No specs per the website or bottle. 7.4% AV. 1.2oz clear bottle. Pours out to a clear deep brown, forming a skimpy light tan head with poor retention and sparse lacing. Carbonation is mild, ~1.8 carbs. The nose is quite nice, reminding me of Sam Smith Winter Welcome with it's caramel, butterscotch, and toffee. Very little hop nose. Mouthfeel is smooth and slick with a medium-dense slightly syrupy body. Taste opens with caramel and toffee and blends into a sweet butterscotch and brown sugar middle. Very mild hop bitterness. A little bit of spice and toasted coconut in the finish, but I couldn't tell you blindly that this was aged in rum casks for 57 days. Despite it's sweetness, it ends slightly dry. Faint peppery wave of alcohol. No appreciable off-flavors. Leather and toast in the finish.

Rich. One bottle is plenty as even though it's not a huge beer, it's quite sweet. This is my favorite of the 3 I've had (The Oak aged, the Irish Whisky cask and this) so far.

clear deep red in color with 2 fingers of head which quickly diminished. smells of vanilla, rum, wood, plum, grapes. very sweet vanilla flavor with a wood backbone. definitely taste the rum cask aging. aside from that, there is a fruity taste leaning towards apples. medium bodied with mild carbonation, barely any lacing. overall this is a very tasty dessert beer. very sweet, very rich, however i do wish it was a bit heavier in the mouthfeel (maybe a bit of creaminess).

After loving the regular version I tracked down this version and purchased it at a fair price of 3 bucks. Believe me for PA that's not bad since it was 4 at the House of 1,000 and 6 at my local bar.

A - Wow that's a lovely dark brown, like a deep brown ale. The head is an impressive inch of mocha colored head.

S - Smell is not as impressive as the regular oak aged but I do get mild notes of vanilla, oak, and toffee along side of a mild rum smell.

T - Well I don't want to say I am disappointed but this rum cast really isn't as tasty as the original. I do like how it has some good toffee sweetness, mild hops, and a island like rum finish. No delectable alcohol makes this tasty.

M - Medium bodied and chewy like the original.

Overall it's balanced as the original but the rum barrel aging seems to have muted some of the sweet flavors that I enjoyed in the regular oak aged version.

Worth trying if you can't stand the sweetness of the regular version.
