Like many Captain L brews, this one is a sipper. A small tan head on dark body, some lace dots. Creamy, particular at the end of the bottle. A little sugar on the margin, rather than any overt rum taste. So drinkability is OK, mouthfeel is very smooth.Thanks for sharing Liam.

Bottle: Poured a deep dark black color porter with a large dirty brown color head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma consists of roasted malt and residual sugar with some medium smokey notes and some light funky Brett notes. Taste is a very well balanced mix between some smoke notes with dry roasted malt offset by some residual sugar and light molasses notes with some notes funky Brett notes on top of this mix. Body is about average with good carbonation and alcohol is very well hidden. Rum notes provide a nice sweet edge without overpowering the rest of the flavours. Very well brewed and something I would like to drink on a regular basis.

Thanks to BlessedBeBeer for cracking this one.

Pours a super dark colored beer with a creamy lighter head.

Nose has dark roasty but salty malts, lots of smoke, bit of brine, hint of chocolate, bit of booze, lots of roast, and hints of oak and rum.

Taste has semi sweet dark roasty malts, tons of smoke, bit of brine and salt, dark malts, oak hint of vanilla, bit of butter rum, bit of chocolate, nice smoked malt flavor and chewy caramel malts.

Mouth is a bit heavier bodied, decent carb, hint of warming booze.

Overall great but a bit briny and salty, nice smoke, nice malts, not too drinkable but great flavors.

The pour was very nice. Rich, deep, dark brown in color with no light cracking through this one at all. A smallish head, maybe a half an inch in height coming up over the top, never really did fade away as it kept that nice layer there throughout the session. Rich side glass lacing left a wonderful chocolate tan color that draped the sides of the glass completely.

The aroma was just rife with whiskey. Huge notes of it just all over the place here with a ton of roasted malts and chocolate like notes hiding right under its surface. Letting it warm really let the oak and vanilla start to become dominant, and a hint of alcohol started to present itself in the back end. This was insanely good smelling for a whiskey barrel beer. The flavor was more of the same, rich, full bodied, I would have sore this was a stout in a blind tasting, but no, this indeed was apparently a robust porter. Luscious, velvet like feel in the carbonation never gave way. The flavor started with that warm influx of vanilla and whiskey, lots of caramelized malts and a light roasted or smoky note to it. This then rolled over with nice touches of chocolate rippling throughout. This was amazingly complex. Huge notes of whisky just oozing through the flavor, coating the tongue with a viciousness that was never-ending. Ridiculously sweet underneath of this, it was literally almost too good to be true. A wonderful sipper, I had to pace myself on this one as it was huge.

Overall this will go toe to toe with any of the biggest BA beers I have ever had. It was just so well crafted and complex I was nearly beside myself after taking the first sip. It is still on tap as of this review and you need to go check this out, it was seriously one of the best beers I have ever had period.

Served in a Walter Payton shaker pint glass.

Big thanks to Hophead101 for this bottle!

VDubb86 and I cracked this bad boy as part of our post-Nellie's nightcap. It pours a ridiculously dark brown, as close to black as one can get while still being brown, topped by over a finger of dark brown (though decidedly lighter than the beer itself, o' course) foam. The nose comprises roasted malts, cocoa, light coffee, molasses, dank oak, light peat smoke, brown sugar, and mild alcohol. Not much rum, strictly speaking, just yet. The tase brings in more of the same, with the oak coming across a bit toasted here, and the molasses seems darker. There's finally a vein of rum in there, running close to the back of everything. It really comes through near the finish and seems to gain some momentum as the beer warms, but never really gets all that prominent. The body is a hefty medium, with a light mdoerate carbonation and a nearly chewy feel. Overall, a very nice beer, with a delectably subtle use of rum, but I was expecting a bit more smoke... Oh well, it was still there, and everything came off damn fine to me. Good times.

From 10/13/12 notes. I brought this to the Top Hops tasting and drank it side by side with the Imperial Wine version thanks to Wherethewildbeersare; thanks Joey!

a - Pours a pitch black color with one inch of dark tan head and low to moderate carbonation evident. Looks exactly like the Wine version.

s - Smells of roasted malts, chocolate, smoke, peat, alcohol, wood, toasted malts, and light coffee. Not as sweet as the wine version, and more alcohol.

t - Tastes of roasted malts, chocolate, alcohol, smoke, wood/oak, peat, burnt malts, coffee. rum. The wine version had some sweet dark fruit to it which was nice, whereas this one did not.

m - Thick, full bodied porter with moderate carbonation. Considering the ABV it is pretty easy to drink, but I felt more alcohol in this version than the wine version.

o - Overall a good smoked porter, but I prefered the wine version. I felt it had more sweet fruit and more going on. Still a good beer I was glad to try, and would have again.

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter. 2010 bottle.

Appearance - Black with a nice mocha head. Thick collar and nice legs.

Smell - Very smokey. Meaty. A little bit of sugar. Chocolate. The faintest of rum aromas.

Taste - Much more chocolate. A little ashy. Sharp smoke. Sulfur. Oaky. Some rum in the finish.

Mouthfeel - Bitter. Medium heavy. Medium carbonation.

Overall - This is some intense smoke. I don't get the rum so much.

This one and its cousins have been sitting in their cozy gift box in my "cellar" closet since late last year (2010). Thought they could use at least a few months in the bottle, and with a quiet night we go...

Pours near black, dense and murky looking with no light shining through. The head is mocha, stays and stays, plenty of sheeting and thick blobs of lacing.

Rich nose infused with dark chocolaty malts, some vanilla and cafe au lait.

Intense, full flavor and heady offering. This is some serious stuff that the captain is putting out there. Loads of milk chocolate, vanilla, coconuts, brandy and just a hint of smoke. Yum...

Velvet on the tongue, beer milk shake, loving it, world class night capper

Thanks again Mike! Served in a Russian River tulip.

A - Looks nearly identical to the wine version.

S - Smells mostly like the base beer - the rum adds a bit of molasses and spice, but I don't get much overt spirit character. Largely smoked malts, chocolate, light oak.

T - Again, this is the least spirit forward of the series. Mostly chocolate, smoke, wood, and perhaps a little bit of spiced rum in the periphery.

M - More like the Apple Brandy version, with some gritty barrel tannics in the medium-full body. Medium-low carbonation, and a faint bit of alcohol warmth.

D - I actually liked this better than the wine version, but the rum barrel-aging seems to muddle some of the rich flavor complexity and sizzle of the base beer rather than enhancing it.

2013 Vintage. Poured in to snifter.

A - Poured black with a thin layer of light brown head that quickly receded to a ring around the edges of the glass.

S - A massive smoke aroma hits the nose right away and overpowers the other elements of the beer in the nose. Some oak and a hint of alcohol (rum) are present in the background.

T - The base beer and barrel aging qualities are much more integrated than the nose suggested. Smoke is still the dominant component but a big charred oak presence shows up along with an alcohol taste that must be the rum with lighter notes of spice and roast in the finish. The rum barrel aging notes are a little rough and don't seem to enhance the overall flavour profile.

M - Medium body. Light carbonation.

Bottle from Whole Food Bowery NYC, 750ml into a snifter. 2010 vintage marked on the bottle.

Pours black, with a finger and change of light brown head. Big legs on this one, solid retention. Nose has an immense smoked character, rivaling but different in many senses from a Schlenkerla. Big, meaty, brown sugar, alcohol, some tar, rum and molasses are here but are quite peripheral - not alot of barrel character evident initially. Taste is just as smokey, charred, some brown sugar, rum again only to be found around the edges of this one. Adds more sweetness and alcohol notes than it does a distinct 'rum' character, although some makes its way to the front when this hits room temp. Sweet and smokey throughout, interesting but not mind-blowing. Sticky, thick and full mouthfeel; intense lingering smoke that refuses to subside and refrain from being 'in your face.' Overpowering in many senses, but enjoyable as I enjoyed alot of the flavours been thrown at me here.

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.

Bottle date of 2010; Sampled September 2011
A steady pour, that ends with a flourish, into my Lost Abbey Teku glass produces a fat-two-finger thick, pale cocoa tinged, dark tan colored head. The beer is an almost black color, that just shows that it is really a deeply concentrated brown color; the beer remains quite dark and opaque when held up to the light, but just might show a touch of an amber glow (but I could just be imagining this). The aroma smells of spirits and oak as I am visually inspecting the beer, a more focused look at the nose yields lots of dry, peppery, spicy oak notes; this is more spicy and dry than typically from oak, and I get some feeling that the rum character is part of this. Lots of toasted / roasted malt notes are noticeable, these are actually probably a bit more pronounced than the oak notes, and wait a minute, I completely forgot the smoke character (took it for granted maybe) which is actually the biggest aromatic note in this beer. The smoke lays down a savory base for all the other notes in the nose. The nose can seem to have a sort of green apple like note to it at times as well as some warm alcohol notes, both of which can be somewhat distracting.

Rich feeling and viscous as it first hits my palate, the smoke lays downs a savory base note to some roasted brown malt notes and the finish has some spicy oak notes as well as some cheap clear rum spirit character to it (though I wouldn’t really describe this last as hot). There is a fair amount of carbonation here, though it is not overly much, that provides a nice lively prickle which helds to move along the viscous body. There is also a fair amount of dark malt sweetness to this brew, but it is fairly well hidden by the savory smoke, slightly bitter and roast dark malt, and spicy oak / rum notes. Touches of chocolate are noticeable from the dark malt and this pairs well with the inherent smokiness of this brew.

In the end this is a fairly enjoyable beer, but it has a touch too much sharpness to it; both the oak and the booze contribute an edge that is just jagged enough to not make this the smooth, savory, sipping experience that it should be. I am not really sure what the rum adds to this (other than the spicy, somewhat hot boozy character), I would have loved to have tasted more of the concentrated, dark rum character that would have gone perfectly with the base beer (I don’t even know what the actual rum type was though).

Bottled 2010

Pours pitch black and completely opaque with a two finger mocha colored head that slowly settles into a thick, lasting ring. Streaks and chunks of lacing left behind.

Intensely smokey aroma with a nicely integrated barrel character that compliments the smoked malt without overpowering the characteristics of the base beer. Strong campfire presence with charcoal, smoked meat and butane along with toasted oak, roasted malt and a subtle spiced rum character. I can see how some folks would prefer more of a barrel presence but I'm a huge smoke head so this beer smells great to me.

On the thinner end of medium bodied with a stronger barrel presence than the aroma suggests. Still plenty smokey but there's a prominent oak and spiced rum character that's present throughout. Some zesty spice, toasted oak, coconut and sweet alcohol countered by deeply smoked malt. Hints of charcoal, BBQ and bacon along with burnt toast, coffee bean and oatmeal. There is plenty of sweet alcohol flavor but the high ABV is excellently masked making this beer deceptively drinkable. Nice barrel integration but I would prefer just a bit more smoke to tone down the rum flavors. Very nice.

Almost 9 months and only 30 reviews? I guess this beer doesn't have the hype going for it. I received a set of these from joefuzz, thanks, man! It's very fitting to drink a rum barrel aged beer on this night when Irene wreaks havoc everywhere but here.

For all intents and purposes, this beer is black. I can't really say I see any highlights either. There's a dense, dark brown head with excellent retention, slowly falling off to a thin disk, leaving some lace. The nose is rather intensely smokey, and in a way I really like. With a blend of smoldering wet wood and a mildly meaty malt backbone, this is *really* good. Swirling my glass brings out the barrel character, with a big, rummy sweetness with brown sugar, some coconut and vanilla and the aromas you expect from a good rum. The smoke and the rum play off each other really really well. Excellent stuff.

My one beef with liquor is that the alcohol is too prominent, making the beverage seem too light. I find myself wishing for the flavors expressed on a more bodacious platform, which is why I enjoy a lot of barrel aged beers. Some do it right, some fail. This beer is an unabashed success. The smoke, chocolate and cocoa of the base beer (one I regret never having) lay a wonderful foundation on which all the things I love about rum - its complex sweetness with brown sugar, molasses and a little bit of burnt sugar - are expressed. In fact, there's even a mild brandy-like character here. The exceptionally expressed rum character then fades, leaving layers of smoke, vanilla and dark chocolate. Alcohol warmth is noticeable on the finish. Medium-full in body with moderate carbonation (initially too high but letting it sit in my glass solves that problem), this beer is incredible. Highly recommended.

750ml capped bottle courtesy of Cuzco. 2010 vintage served in a tulip. Pours pitch black with a creamy, dense, quarter inch khaki-colored head. Textured clumps of lacing are revealed during the tasting. Nose gives off a big smoked meat/jerky character that is a bit overpowering. Once that dissipates a suggestion of artificial sweetener comes out. Taste is consistent with nose; however, the smoked meat quality is a bit more tempered by the malt and char. The rum barrel aging also pleasantly manifest towards the back and nicely dissipates some of the more assertive cured meat qualities. Mouthfeel is medium-light with an even carbonation and a slightly creamy texture. All and all, a decent brew. I am not a huge fan of overly smoked beers, but these brews have been interesting. That said, I have to say that the Apple Brandy barrel was my favorite of the three, followed by the wine and then the rum. A solid beer if you like smoked brews, but this just becomes a bit too much for me.

Thanks to sender for popping this open at a tasting last night, so we had a complete set of the 2010 Oaks.

Pours near black just like the other oaks. This one isn't as aggressive as the wine barrel in the nose. There's plenty of smoke, but a touch of rum & some roast amongst the campfire.

Smoke from the Oak Rum is the middle child of the three we tried. The smoke is readily apparent but not trampling everything in its path like the wine version. Roast is distinct from the smoke & helping to tame it a bit. Spiciness from the rum tickles, and the rum itself drifts in on the aftertaste. But another beer that would be difficult to wade through another full glass of; smoke is just too dense.

Good beer that moves towards the right balance of smoke & barrel.

Bottle shared by Corey – thanks! Side-by-side with the wine and brandy versions.

Pours black with a tan head that leaves decent lacing.

Smells of smooth roasted malts with a good deal of boozy rum and hints of vanilla. Also present are slight hints of smokiness.

Tastes similar to how it smells, though not as complex. Robust roasted malt flavors up front are joined by a light smokiness midway through. Near the end the rum barrel comes into play with lightly spicy rum and mild amounts of oak that carry through to a moderately bitter ending. Mouthfeel is good, with smooth carbonation.

Overall I thought this was the barrel treatment that meshed the best with the style of beer, something I don’t normally expect from rum barrels. An interesting beer that’s well worth a shot.

a-Poured a stunning deep brown into the captain lawrence tasting glass that came with the gift set. As the pour finished, the head built in the tulip much like a guiness and the other beers from this series. Gorgeous.

s-Oh wow, that campfire smoke is there from the original, but with a gorgeous rum overtone. This is the mix I was waiting for.

t-Much like the others from this series, the smoke in the base beer is tamed back from the barrel aging, but the rum barrel really works with the smoked porter. The smokey flavor that makes this beer so amazing isn't nearly as hidden as in the others and the rum flavoring works really well and balances things out nicely. It is definitely a bit hot, but really exceptional. My favorite of the set.

m-Rich and creamy with a smokey coating. Full bodied with a soft alc tingle.

d-Highlight of the SFTO gift set. All these brews were fantastic, but this one just seemed to work the best for my tastes. Would really love for the Imperial Smoked Porter to get bottled, as of now this one is the closest you are gonna get. This BA is great as a special treat, but not something you'd drink in any quantity.

A: Pours black with three fingers of brown head that recedes into a thin layer with a little lacing.

S: Lots and lots of smokey malt aromas at first--almost like a rauchbier. Aromas of vanilla, caramel, toffee, oak, and rum come out on the finish as the beer warms.

T: Similar to the aroma, this beer tastes almost like a rauchbier at first with lots of smokey, roasted malt flavors. Caramel, vanilla, oak, and rum flavors bring up the finish along with a light alcohol burn. The flavors blend surprisingly well, which I did not expect since rum is normally a sweeter liquor. Very tasty, though.

M: Medium-thick body with medium carbonation, this beer is relatively light for such a high gravity beer. The lighter body goes well with the strong smoke flavors, though.

O: I quite enjoyed this beer--it's like rum-infused bacon. I wish the smoke wasn't quite so strong to let the rum characteristics shine through a bit more, but that's a minor complaint since the beer is still delicious (if a bit pricey).

A - Looks like the other versions, leaning toward more head like the wine one did. Black beer, brown on the edges, minor lace off a tan head.

S - Out of all the versions this one seems to have taken the least to the barrels. A lot of smoke, roasted malts, a little chocolate, slight bit of barrel and some rum spices.

T - I don't generally go for rum, and don't find it to be a particularly great addition to this beer. It seems to have thinned out the flavors a little bit, although there is still plenty of smokey goodness. Their is some sweet spiced notes from the rum and I don't think are a good addition.

M - Medium bodied, with moderate carbonation.

O - My least favorite of the three, I just didn't care for the addition of the rum and found it kind of strange. Not bad, but I'd rather have the other two or the base beer.

Pours a pitch black color with a big dense light brown head which slowly disipates leaving a wall of lacing on the glass.

The aroma is of a smokey malt with a noticable sweet and sour berry scent. Notes of brown sugar round out the aroma.

A nice solid toasted pumpernickle bread, sweet sugar presence with a touch of vanilla from the rum. Substantial smoke flavor, it adds an earthy and woody presence. There is some char and wet wood as well as some sour berry.

The feel is moderate to full with prickly carbonation. There are some sweet and sour aspect to the palate but has a malty sweet overall feel.

A very woody porter. The base is quite earthy and the smoke just adds another layer. I like the vanilla and brown sugar sweetness that the rum barrels add

Poured from tap at Aporkalypse.
Pours a deep dark oily black brown with a slightly reddish hue.
Smell was incredible! Roasted malts, some raison, and of course a nice caramel vanilla booze.
Taste was very similar, of vanilla and caramel booze, roasted malts and a bit of chocolate. Slightly sharp mouthfeel, but otherwise a very delicious brew. I would love to get my hands on a bottle to age for a while...

Got all these variants from STEG a while back. Thanks again man!

From a 750ml into a snifter
Vintage: 2010

APPEARANCE: This one was a gusher, but once it settled down, it was just fine. All the variants basically look the same as well. Pours our transparent brown and yields a small, medium looking, tan head with god retention. Head fades to a wisp and ring. Black, relatively transparent looking body with no carbonation evident. A ring remains until the end and leaves lots of lacing down the glass.

SMELL: Milder here again, with some smoked malts, dark malts, chocolate and oak on the nose. Some tobacco as well, which differentiates it from the other variants. Not as boozy at the others either.

TASTE: Actually quite nice. Some smoked malts, roasted malts, and then a good dose of rum in there as well. Tobacco flavors and smoky notes at the finish, moving into a bold and lingering aftertaste of rum, smoke, and a bit of bitter dark chocolate. Pretty flavorful and well crafted actually.

PALATE: Somewhere in between the other two variants. Medium-light body and medium levels of carbonation. Slightly creamy, goes down alright and finishes relatively dry on the palate. Too light to be average for the style.

OVERALL: This one was definitely my favorite of the series. The only one I went back to for multiple pours. While the palate could have been a little more impressive, the flavors were definitely complex and forthcoming enough to be quite enjoyable. This is the only one I’d look forward to drinking again. Thanks again for the trade STEG. Was fun to try all these together.
