4.27/5  rDev -3.8%

Deep brown to black but clear on the edges. About 1 inch of head that settles to a solid ring. Some lacing on a swirl.

Nose is very much rum and minor vanilla and molasses.

Taste is strong rum, minor vanilla, molasses, oak, and a gentle sweetness.

Mouthful is medium to heavy and aggressive from the booze. Carbonation is average to low. Finish is semi sweet.

A rum forward beer that is nearly overpowered by the rum character. Coconut is somewhere in there but my palate is not refined enough to catch it. Vanilla on the other hand is definitely there. Very tasty. Very hot.

Crazy beer incoming. Huge notes of fruity, sugary dark rum, syrupy chocolate, and coconut in the nose. Thick molasses, vanilla, and caramel upfront on the tongue that segues into a crisper vanilla finish. Definitely some heat from the Rum-barrel, but not to its detriment. Quite thick and smooth overall in the mouthfeel department.

Reminds me quite a bit of Pirate Bomb minus the chilis, or what I expect Pirate Paradise to taste like. If you can't trade for Pirate Paradise, definitely try and trade for this as a consolation prize; I can't imagine this beer being any weaker than that one.
