I love regular Cafe Americano and this one takes it a step further! Magnificent but smooth Rum barrel notes and still that same coffee with slight peppery heat! Glorious!!

L: Pours a thick, oily mocha and mahogany stream with a rusty, dark brown head
S: Espresso, melted chocolate, and molasses
T: Bright shot of dark roasted coffee, decadent dark chocolate, vanilla, fudge, and a bit of spice from the rum barrel
F: Thick, chewy, and viscous
O: This was an excellent improvement on the base beer. Aside from being one of the most aesthetically pleasing stouts I've laid eyes on, this beer delivered a robust and flavorful tasting experience. Thick and rich with excellent espresso and chocolate notes, Rum BA Caffe Americano did not disappoint. Well done.

Bottle: Poured a pitch-black color stout with a large dark brown foamy head with good retention and minimal lacing. Aroma of sweet chocolate malt notes with some rum notes, residual sugar notes and a light spicy undertone. Taste is a mix of sweet chocolate malt notes with some residual sugar notes, light run barrel notes with a spicy kick at the end. Body is full with nice creamy notes and good carbonation with no apparent alcohol. Super stout with loads of complexity but I would have loved this better without the spicy factor.
