On tap at Hunahpu Day. Served in a wine glass.

Appearance - Inky black. Medium mocha head. Stains the glass.

Smell - Fudgy and rummy. Smells very sweet. Intense molasses Zhukov aroma.

Taste - The rum works well. As sweet as the beer is, the rum doesn't amplify it. Rounds it out a bit. Strong molasses. Oak. Fudgy all around.

Mouthfeel - Heavy. Boozy.

Overall - Preferred this to the Sherry treatment, which was on tap at the same time.

The best BA version of this beer. The rum adds a perfect sweetness to this thick black stout. On tap at Huna day and could rival and pour I had that day.
