22oz bottle poured into a tulip
Bottled 9/18/15

A- pours a deep black color with a small fosynwhali head that reduces to a ring around the edge

S- smells of dark malt, chocolate, black strap molasses, rum barrel, ginger, cinnamon and pepper

T- dark roasted malt and chocolate up front, followed by molasses, fig and plenty of rum barrel. The finish is spicy with more rum on the finish, with a linger of peppers.

M- medium body with low carbonation leads to a foamy mouthfeel as a warming pepper finish

O- a great mix of sweet and spicy with plenty of rum barrel

Appearance: The fudge brown pour is capped by a rocky tan head; decent stickage and leggy lacing

Smell: Chocolate, oats, vanilla, coconut and faint caramel; many of those tones come from the Rum barrel

Taste: Chocolate forward, with vanilla and coconut tones developing; the Rum makes a bigger impression, through the middle, when the cayenne pepper arrives; the finish is a nice blend of the flavors, with the cayenne adding heat

Mouthfeel: Full bodied with low to moderate carbonation

Overall: Almost two years in the bottle and this one is holding up very nicely
