12.7 FL Oz bottle
Served in a snifter
2014

This beer pours as black as my ex-girlfriend's heart. A semi-aggressive pour yielded little deep mocha head that had little staying power.

The first thing I notice is dark fruit aroma, plum, black cherry. As it warms I pick up some dark chocolate with a little anise.

The taste has dark fruit as well up front. Towards the finish I get dark chocolate, coffee and anise. There is some spiciness from the rum through the middle and into the finish. The finish is semi dry and oaky.

Full mouthfeel

This is an interesting beer. The dark fruit and roasted flavors and smells work well. I see lots of infection issues. I am not sure if that is the cause of the dark fruit. If so, it was not to the detriment in my opinion. Either way, it is a good beer.

Hmm, this did not bubble over upon opening, and the smell was a somewhat intriguing butterscotch, but...the taste was Flanders. Obviously an unintended outcome.

Poured a nice opaque brown to black with a thin brown head, slight lacing throughout. The nutty flavor is really highlighted with traces of caocao throughout. Feel bad for everyone that got an infected one, I really enjoyed it! Another great beer from Jackie o's!

Sour fruit notes, minimal aroma, tart taste through and through. Very disappointing. This beer could have been amazing!

Pours an opaque dark brown almost black like oil with the same type of viscosity and khaki colored head. Rum, oak, vanilla, nuts, chocolate, and candy sweetness on the nose; follow onto the palate. Very complex and full bodied. Finishes with plenty of barrel and chocolate.

I agree with the bros on this one. Amazing. You must like rum to like this beer. Rum forward with the base beer at the finish. Smell isn't barrel strong.

Great rum balance to an already amazing beer. The base beer is one of my favorite stouts. The rum characters play perfectly
