Squatters Outer Daarrgness

What the brewers say

Aged in rum barrels.

What our panel thought

Rich goodness on the nose: rum, but plenty of raisin, maple, dates, and plum. The taste hits those notes but adds vanilla and roast malt, plus a touch of black malt. The alcohol is warming and a little boozy without too much retronasal burn.

What our editors thought

The nose is all rum—burnt sugar and oak with a touch of dry barrel character. The flavor starts warm and rich, but on ensuing sips, the dry and vegetal character comes through, leaving the pleasure of the spirits bar-rel purely in the nose.
