look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Bottle poured into nonic

Two finger beige head, brown body

Smells like Belhaven had a baby with Sailor Jerry, but that's a good thing.

Tastes: like Captain and Belhaven, but smooth and delicate. The finish is what gets you, because you can taste the warmth of the Rum accents.

Mouthfeel: Thick

Overall, have this on a winter's night. It'll get you closer to the hearth without burning your bum.

My favorite beer so I am biased... I'm sorry... I've tried a few other wee heavys but this one takes the cake with no competition in sight.... I'm not saying theres not a better wee heavy/beer out there but rum cask is exceptional... Other wee heavy's I've had, had a bit more umph to it. Rum cask is smooth.. which is amazing being it's aged in casks. To me the cask beers usually are the ones with the umph. I don't have the greatest sense of smell but the smell was good... great carbonation which made a two finger head that stayed very long with sticky lacing. Very complex mouthier but again very smooth and layered perfectly. I really can't taste too much alcohol burn, barely taste that it's there but it is in the nose. It also may be more subtle because I like to drink it a tad colder than the recommended wee heavy temp.... still tatstes great at its temp. Love the Rum beers and this is one of the best...

A: A dark translucent brown, reminiscent of oak and rum, with a soapy white pillowy head that dies quickly.

S: That's a barrel-aged beer for sure; spiced rum-forward with some oak, molasses, butter, and dark fruits (and some pear, oddly). Drinking this in May, but has the nose of a winter warmer. Excellent.

T: Watered down rum, light dashes of raisin and pear, and a slight oak-tinge are the mainstays, with a faint vanilla underbelly. Grassy hops in the finish.

M: Surprisingly light, although I've had the original and it's similar in body. Very little carbonation.
