Pours black with an off white head. Aroma needs to be allowed to warm out for it to really come out, but still never materializes into anything all that special. Rum and its barrel with some vanilla and cocunut dominate, a slight roasty and chocolate base hides out underneath. The oatmeal stout component of this beer is pretty much lost for the most part. Flavor is significantly rum barrel with the rum, vanilla and coconut taking control here. Once it warms some chocolate and roasted malt begins to introduce itself but not nearly balanced enough. Probably just too small a beer to stand up to the rum barrels A medium bodied, creamy mouthfeel. Overall, good use of the barrels as their influence was spot on in this one for its balance and flavor/aroma contributions. Just too bad that the beer was not big enough to stand up to the barrels and got lost. After being quite pleased with my prior couple Breck barrel aged beers (Well Built and Holidale) was a bit disappointed here. Probably not worth a repeat visit.
