This beer is not for the faint of heart! It pours very dark, smells strong, and tastes even stronger. The rum really hits you in the face with very strong vanilla notes. I absolutely love this beer but I am knocking it a half-point for not being accessible to others.

Poured into a snifter it has a black body and a beige head. Smell of rum chocolate, fudge, and vanilla, with a bit of roasted malt at the end. Taste is tons of rum and fudge with vanilla and chocolate, a little bit of coffee at the end. Mouth feel is full and richas well as body and a smooth moderate carbonation.

I would recommend letting this warm up as it improves at room temperature.

The beer offers a rush of spicy rum and sweetness, that almost does not play well with the rich chocolately sweetness that the beer already has. However, the barrel character smooths out the beer's bitterness slightly.

While I much preferred the Marker's Mark, this was a wonderful attempt at rum barrel aging an already fine brew.
