ABV: 11.8%
Cost: $15 (22 oz)
Glassware: Belgian Snifter
Serving Temp: 55°
Availability: Limited (Brewed Once)
Purchased@: Weyerbacher Visitor Center

Quick Take: Really impressive beer that is wonderfully blended and benefits from a high ABV without becoming a rum-boozed mess. I think this could pleasantly surprise the ABV chasers and craft beer snobs if they are given the chance to try it. Make no mistake, this is a rum forward beer and the tropical/coconut qualities dominate the base beer elements. That said, it’s a fine example of a barrel-aged beer with a nice emphasis on the rum.

This is a follow up to the previous episode and features my fellow beer hunter, Chris. Two opinions are better than one, so here is another take on the same beer. This isn’t meant as a full-fledged review but as a way to feature a different palate than mine and give you a fullerer (new word!) perspective on the beer.
