Bottle shared by Curran last night.

This one pours a fairly dark black, with no head or lacing, really.

Smells like bandaidy and medicinal smoke, with very light rum, and maybe a little bit of chocolate.

I'm not sure if this didn't age well (it's '13) or the flavors just never really melded really well together, but it really didn't work at all. The smoke character is not really all that pleasant, it's got the dreaded bandaidy, sort of medicinal quality to it. There's a very slight rum character, and no oak or vanilla or any barrel presence of that sort.

This is medium bodied, slightly creamy, but pretty hard to drink due to the unpleasant clash of flavors.

Not good, really at all. Would not recommend.

This one was a disappointment for me. Barrel was apparent, the rum was noticeable, but this was not put together correctly.
