If you don't like rum or for that matter Pina Coladas and getting caught in the rain, then stay away from this one. The nose is like a bottle of rum full of the alcohol and distilled cane sugar. There is some oak and coconut that reminds you of a double Pina Colada.

This is rather boozy and the alcohol makes several appearances during the drink. It starts rummy and coconut laden like a Pina Colada. It gets kind of fruity on the back end with a pineapple garnish taste. It also captures a purple grape flavor to make it vastly different and wonderfully interesting. I'm not a rum drinker but I enjoyed this.

Another thanks to rudzud.

Decent creamy darker head fades pretty quickly, light lacing, nice legs, dark molasses brown beer.

Nose creamy milk stout, toasty brown malts and dark dry cocoa dust, nice rummy fruit like note. brown candy malt, nice expensive smooth rum.

Taste sweet candy malt, nice smooth rum again, dark porter malts, toasty and caramel, molasses, etc. Mild sweetness, little booze warmth, mild toasty brown malts, toffee, little dark fruit like fig, etc. Finish is a bit hot, little sticky syrupy, nice brown malts, lots of rum and molasses syrup.

Mouth is med to fuller bod, decent carb, some warming booze.

Overall nice rum, pretty nice overall.

Vanilla, molasses, dark rum. No sweetness. Oak dryness. On the thin side. The more I drink it, the more it's growing on me. Not really worth tracking down, but I'm glad to try it. Don't know why it gets such a bad wrap.
