Appearance - Served in a snifter, the beer poured black with a tan head.

Smell - The nose was very booze forward with little about the nose suggesting a stout.

Taste - The feel was smooth, but the burn from alcohol was overwheliming. Chocolate and spice was pretty well masked. The burn continues in the aftertaste.

Mouthfeel - Even with the burn, this was remarkably smooth.

Overall - I am not sure I would seek this one. Transient always impresses me, but I don’t think rum aging even a great beer does anything for it.

Looks and pours beautifully. Spices galore. Lots of cinnamon and clove up front. Getting the orange zest mid palate. Am I picking up some cardamom? Hint of maple syrup and earthy molasses. Medium bodied. Semi dry finish. Flavor punch up front that mellows out with lingering spices. Bit boozy in a good way. Real good.

22 ounce bottle into a snifter. Had 11/25/17.

Pours dark, opaque, with a half inch head of darker foam and some oily lacing. Aromas of malt, cloves, ginger, molasses, smoke, cinnamon, cocoa, some vanilla, a little black pepper when warm. The taste is malt, ginger, cinnamon, chocolate, molasses, some vanilla and caramel, lighter cloves, a hint of rum as it warms. Kind of a light sweetness- from the maple? Very smooth, a solid medium to full body, well carbonated.

This was very enjoyable. Most of the add- ins are clear and expressive, although the maple and orange zest are pretty much no- shows. The ginger and cloves are great in this. Well worth a purchase, if it comes around again.

This beer is interesting... I wish they would have just put Buckley in rum barrels and left it alone. The clove and ginger and other crap for adjuncts was a bit over the top. Just stick to the coffee, maple, vanilla combo!

A - Pours midnight black with a thin tan head. Light soapy lacing.

S - Aroma is ginger, cinnamon, dark chocolate and rum.

T - The taste is dark chocolate, vanilla, maple syrup, cinnamon, ginger, clove and rum.

M - Full bodied with low carbonation. Creamy mouthfeel with a soft oily finish.

O - This is a pretty decadent spiced rum barrel aged stout. The ginger and cinnamon are very strong throughout. Nice dessert beer.

Dark beer with flavors of piney spruce, nutmeg, chocolate, and rum. A nice slow sipper for Christmas.
