On tap at CBC 2016, day 2. Pitch black with not much head. Chocolate, coffee, rum and hot chilli. Smooth mouthfeel, the alcohol is well hidden.

Better than the original bomb; and that's the point of barrel aging. Tastes of a spiced coffee splashed with rum.

A review in progress as I believe I kay have had a bottle that had lost most of its carbonation.

From a bottle purchased in Kansas.

A - Poured flat with no head at all.

S - Brown sugar and molasses, some rum sweetness

T - a bit hot

S - Heavy with a sweet but not cloying finish. Slick and a bit hot.

Aroma: the smell of chocolate and coffee with a hint of sweetness from the vanilla is noticeable up front while the brandy and rum barrel provides a subtle undertone.
Appearance: very dark brown which is expected
Flavor: the coffee and chocolate flavors dominate on the front end with the rum barrel really coming through in the finish.
Mouth-feel: Medium full with a slightly creamy mouth-feel that grows more prominent as it warms up.
