Coming out of the bottle it pours a translucent brown which once in the glass settles into an almost opaque brown. As the name suggests, there is a rum aroma and taste. You can also taste the oak. I am not crazy about the finish since rum has never been my favorite liquor. There is too much of a medicine like after taste for me. The feel is refreshing in a soda like way. Perhaps the mouth feel and color makes me feel like I am drinking a Coke. I am not as familiar with this style and perhaps need to get used to it. Will try other examples of this style and perhaps re-evaluate my rating. However, for now I do not see myself buying this one anytime soon.

330ml bottle into snifter

a: deep copper & ruby red mix with a finger of bone-coloured head

s: banana, spicy rum, vanilla, caramel, alcohol. huge aroma, smelled it right when i popped the cap off

t: follows the nose. caramel, banana, vanilla, and just a huge distinct rum character on the back-end. it has a bit of a distinct alcohol bitterness bite, but i think it works well with the rum flavours

m: medium to medium-plus mouthfeel, rich and kinda creamy. little to no carbonation

o: great stuff, give it a shot if you like beers that aren't very beer-like
