Notes / Commercial Description:
Devil's Teeth is a hybrid of an Old Ale and an imperial stout, two English beer styles designed to withstand long voyages and dark winters. It brings rich maltiness and robust roastiness in a thick, tongue-coating, aggressively flavorful package. We aged this batch of Devil's Teeth in Jamaican rum barrels and loaded it up with cardamom, coffee, and vanilla, resulting in a captivating bouquet of oak, dark fruit, coffee, and spices that wraps the palate in a warm, hearty embrace and fills the heart with pure joy.

Pours place with big booming tan head that dies down real quick. Aromas of rum quickly fill the nostrils. Flavor is dominated by the rum, but not overwhelming, giving it a nice rummy sweet profile. Was expecting a little more body, and knocking the overall score a bit because I didn't pick up on any coffee.

650ml bottle, served in a snifter glass. Pours a dark black body, slightly dark cola hued, not quite pitch black, one finger offwhite head, fair retention, no lacing. Smell is rich rum and sugar, light vanilla, touch of milk chocolate, spices and a mild black coffee bite, more of a roasty and slightly acidic coffee. Flavour follows, the rum gives a slight burn on the backend, very complex brew with a good sugary milk chocolate and toffee presence that is tempered by the coffee, but ultimately the rum comes out the king here. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, not quite thick but not too thin, good carbonation, slight rum burn on the finish.
