S- tons of fresh coffee up front with undertones of sweet rum and vanilla, oak and earth

T- sweet milky lactose mixes with fresh coffee and vanilla, followed by light undertones of sweet rum, finishes with more fresh coffee

M- medium body and carbonation, foamy mouthfeel and finish

O- coffee and rum barrel work great together, very well done

Shared large bottle in Atlanta.
Probably past optimum age, with some off aromas and flavors, and faded coffee; otherwise, mildly infected?

Mouthfeel: Very smooth near full body.

This was really good. There was nothing wrong with this beer. I guess people aren't very familiar with Rum barrels. No infection, no nail polish.

A: Pours an opaque yet still clear jet black in color with light amounts of active visible carbonation along the edges of the glass and faint hints of dark cola brown highlights. The beer has a finger tall foamy tan head that slowly reduces to a medium thick film covering the entire surface of the beer and a medium thick ring at the edges of the glass. Light amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of freshly brewed coffee with light to moderate aromas of rum, oak barrel, and vanilla beans. Slightly boozy with just the slightest hint of sourness.

T: Upfront there is a moderate flavor of roasted malts with a light to moderate amount of lactose sweetness. That is followed by lights flavors of freshly brewed coffee and moderate flavors of rum, oak, and vanilla beans. Hints of sourness in the finish. Minimal amounts of bitterness present.

M: Slightly heavier than medium bodied with moderate to heavy amounts of carbonation.

O: Seems slightly over-carbonated for the style with just the slightest hint of infection starting to show up (this had been stored cold since it's purchase and at the store). Overall still a very enjoyable brew though I obviously wish the hints of infection were not present. I'm looking forward to trying this one again after it is brewed again - hopefully when it is really fresh.
