500ml brown bottle poured into a Hobgoblin branded pint pot.

A. Deep amber with a loose bubbly white head. Seems pretty lively judging by the amount of bubbles rising up.

S. Malty and a faint whiff of toffee. No rum whatsoever in the aroma.

T. Not a hint of rum detected, lots of juicy malt, some peppery spice and a little hop bite.

M. Medium bodied, slightly carbonated.

D. I was looking forward to something a little better given the name of the beer but couldn't find any rum at all. An okay beer I suppose but not worth £2 a bottle IMO. According to the label Caribbean rum is added to the beer. I think it must have jumped ship before getting into this bottle.

500ml Brown bottle, best before the end of Sept 2012: poured into my Abbot Ale glass tankard in Mar 2012.

Wadworth 6X with smooth Caribbean Rum according to the rear label.

I'd never have guessed there was rum in it, but once the thought is put in your head it tries to find it: no rum in the nose, but I might have picked up hints in the semi-sweet flavours found in the taste. Would love to have had a normal 6X to compare this bottle with: I might even do that in the future.

Good amber body, clear and clean, the white head fell away to a wispy covering and collar half way through the tasting, but I did have some Brie and buscuits once I'd decided the smell and taste comments I intended to write, so that might have killed the head somewhat.

The nose was malty, the taste simular but with a mini hop bitterness in the finish.

This is a pleasant beer and I recommend you try it if given the chance.
