Received in a 4 oz. tasting glass. This is a walnut stout aged in a rum barrel with bugs added.

3.5 A: Black color. Came without a head.

4.5 S: Rum and walnut are strongest. Walnut stouts smell just so damn good and JO's does them the best. Supple roast with chocolate and caramel sweetness. The bugs add just hints of funk and tartness that is beneath the other aromas.

3.0 T: The bugs totally dominate the taste, which is a shame. Lots of funk, lactic tanginess, and a moderate sourness. The rum is still there, but the walnuts, chocolate, and caramel are hard to find.

3.0 M: Lighter medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Not creamy at all. Thinner than I'd like.

3.0 D: Great smell, but in taste it's a bad stout and a mediocre sour. This could have been great without the bugs.
