this beer is awesome! hands down my favorite variant i have had of it, and far preferable to the more available bourbon barrel aged in my opinion. so many rum barrel aged beers are way too sweet to appreciate the rum itself, but this has a drier roast to the malt base that i think sets up the rum expertly. there is also a ton of rum on it too, so that helps push it through the massive base beer, they must have been freshly drained barrels, or else it spent a ton of time in them, maybe both, but the rum flavor on this is huge. slick and oily looking in the glass, highly viscous, and surprisingly lively. aroma here is old wood, sun bleached and ocean sprayed oak, this has a caribbean vibe about the wood even before the rum itself, sort of islandy and with loads of coffee aromas from all the dark grain. the rum in the flavors is sweet and strong, a wonderful counterpoint to the bitterness of the dark roasted grains and the coffee flavors they contribute. more wood, slightly burnt, and the sweet cane sugar rum. i like that it almost has a dark or spiced rum vibe to it, richer and more interesting flavors, so compatible with the stout its crazy. i love the heavy weight of this, and the oddly summery and lightening rum, its a cool back and forth. a much more interesting and unique beer than the bourbon version, this was just delicious. some of the very best beer i have ever had from these guys! i need more!
