Opaque darkness in a glass with a bit of a tan head.
Lots of rum on the nose with molasses. The rum is definitely a part of the flavor profile as well mixed with dark chocolate, molasses or panela and a hint of coffee. Another winner of a stout from the Tampa-St. Pete area.

This one pours a pretty dark and deep black color, with a very small miniscule head, and no lacing.

This smells like vanilla, molasses, spice, cinnamon, heavy boozy rum, oak, and chocolate fudge. This smells like quite the barrel bomb on the nose.

This is possibly the most barrel-forward Cycle beer that I've had, but it's definitely a good thing. The rum comes across super tastily, with notes of the spirit, vanilla, oak, pine, cinnamon and other spice. There's also some dark fruit and a big chocolatey base, as I tend to expect from the DOS base.

This is pretty thick and chewy, and it's definitely a slow sipper, with a big creamy and boozy mouthfeel to it.

This nicely shows that Cycle can still make a stout that doesn't have a bunch of stuff added to it.

L: pours black, pretty thick and no head
S: runs jumps out first, followed by rich chocolate / fudge. I also get tobacco and molasses.
T: not bursting with flavors, but luckily for me the chocolate and rum are domanate throughout while cold but as it warms up tabacco dominates and isn't good.
F: thin to medium thickness, very smooth.

Look: Pitch Black with thin khaki head that recedes immediately. Has low carbonation.
Smell: Rum, coconut, pineapple, cocoa, and pecan.
Taste: Rum, coconut, pineapple, cocoa, and milk chocolate.
Mouthfeel: Medium light and creamy. Masks the alcohol very well.
Overall: A good rum barrel aged stout from Cycle.

Pours just the slightest bit thin with light leaking through the pour. Dark khaki head that leaves an unbroken ring around the edge of the glass. When it was cold it was super rummy and boozy but as it warmed it developed a gigantic vanilla nose. Vanilla fudge and marshmallows with just the slightest booze breath. The taste is divine as well. Somewhat creamy and sweet with a rummy booze back end and just little whisps of vanilla. Feel is silky with light carbonation. Overall this beer is superb. It really needs to warm up in order for it to come out. When it is cold it is a boozy rummy mess but one it comes to temp it becomes divine.
