* * * * - [reviewed against all beers]
Comment Initial reaction: double-eyebrow raise, paired with a "Holy sh—!" and giggling. Damned if it doesn't taste like rum beer. (Can't blame me for assuming that it would taste like any old beer just stuck in a barrel for show.) It smells faintly like oak, but then you take a sip and the only thing going through your brain is "RUM" in Times Square signage. Not gonna lie: This would be delish with some snickerdoodles or Samoas or food with a warm, spiced flavor. Or as a chaser for some nice sippin' rum. I'd be cool with that, too. Fantastic.
