    This fine beer is brewed not really far from Bromont, where my father-in-law lives. It’s crafted with dark rum and honestly, I’d say it’s a homerun. It pours an intense and fiery amber with low carbonation topped by a lightly tanned creamy head that will fade away completely. The nose is sweet with vanilla, candied fruits and caramel but also express notes of rum and some floral hops. The attack is sweet and gives you some toasted malts paired with some dark rum warmth followed by an incredible hoppy finish. This ale is visually very satisfying, making up for what it lacks in rum flavor. I found it to be light and grainy with a dry finale that wrapped it all quite well. A good choice overall if you happen to spot it.
