Poured from a wax-capped bomber into a tulip. Pretty reddish-brown, no head. It went downhill from there.

Sickeningly sweet. Smelled of booze and soy sauce. The boozy smell got stronger as it warmed. I got through about a third of the bottle and could stomach no more. Drain pour.

First beer I have ever had to pour out after only a few sips. Maybe it gets better with age but the Rum was so overbearing I didn't even taste a brown ale, just booze.
