Notes / Commercial Description:
Complex notes of toffee and vanilla lure you in, with a roasty-toasty, malt-forward body burly enough to un-shiver those timbers. Make way for Rum King, a pitch black Imperial Stout aged in freshly emptied rum barrels. Smooth, assertive, and nearly ‘Navy strength,’ this seaworthy and spirited brew is a bold character to be reckoned with.

This beer pours pitch black. It is a thick pouring beer. Thick, frothy brown head. Amazing head retention. Beautiful lacing on the glass.
The nose is rich with chocolate notes. I also get hints of the barrel aging - rum, of course.
The taste is out of this world. It was for a fraction of a second mellow, then my taste buds lit up. Chocolate, and on the backside I get the nice smooth burn from the barrel.
Feel is amazing. Nice, thick, rich. Full bodied.
Damn amazing beer. So damn good. Almost a perfect beer.

2016 canning from Aaron (thanks!), poured at room temperature into my Jackie O's tulip.

Pours a dark, opaque brownish black with tons of tan head that recedes to a constant ring. Big aromas of rum barrel pour out of this thing at this temperature, sweet and juicy rum character...vanilla, oak, and booze are all present on the nose...taste follows, semi-boozy chocolatey rum and char, vanilla and oak...not too hot, but just a bit of heat in the throat...more rum and char on the finish. Medium/full body with a nice dry finish that cuts the sweetness just a bit.

This thing is awesome, and I'm super glad it's in 12oz format. A bomber would be too much booze and rum sweetness (for me) but this thing is great as-is in a can.

12oz can poured into a tulip glass. Big roasty and boozie nose. The rum does not hide. It is a rush of what tastes like vanilla from the rum barrel. A bit oaky from the barrel that goes away as you drink it because the rum covers it up. Great tan head in the beginning that disappears as you drink but the carbonation stays strong. Heavy mouthfeel. good beer that I will drink again.

Pitch black, tall tan head and sheets of thick lacing. Rum, char and chocolate aromas. Notes of roasted grain, dark chocolate, rum, coconut, light char and vanilla. Full, smooth, creamy, perfect carbonation and dry. Amazing stout and great rum barrel character.
