I keep going back to this beer every so often. Every time I do, I remember what about it that I like so much. The complex of flavors and smells in this beer are great. A little rum. A little sweet. Some malt. Some caramel or toffee. Not too strong alcohol. Just a lot of good things going on here. And every time I am nearing the end, after it's warmed a bit, I swear that this beer is like a banana split with vanilla bean ice cream, caramel or toffee sauce, a touch of rum and a touch of whiskey.

Color is dark, red, brown. Smell is rum, caramel/toffee. A little sweet, and just enough alcohol.

Taste starts out with a little rum, semi-sweet flavor. As it warms, you get more of the rum and a few new flavors like the caramel and toffee.

Very rich, great malts, and a bite at the end. A great cold weather beer. Gets better as it warms.
