American oak and rum-infused oak chips, we presume? Regardless, we’ll take this beer on. Dark ruddy brown color glim- mers with its clarity. Soft but pungent aroma; oaky, musty, hint of spice and alcohol, cigar, brown bread and ripe baked apples. Oakiness has some pull on the palate but lets the beer be a beer. Brown sugar and rum notes are mild, but are certainly complex layers. Maltiness is slightly dry and bready; modest hopping here. Some warmth from the alcohol. A very savory beer, perhaps a bite refined, but that factor does not affect the depth of its complexities. Seek this one out.
