After having the Bourbon version, I sure was excited to try this iteration in Rum barrels. Pours pitch black with a small head that quickly vanishes. Vanilla explodes the nose, followed by a hint of rum. Such a rich and creamy mouth feel alongside a huge vanilla flavor really makes this brew taste a lot like a vanilla shake fueled with a hint of rum. While this is a stellar beer, I am going to knock my overall score a bit due to the lack of advertised Mostra coffee.
