500ml growler poured into a tulip. Thanks Alex (ataraxia) for bringing this to our tasting.

A- Pours a dark black with a slight creamy mocha head that recedes to a flat top. Minimal carbonation but not bad coming from a barrel-aged stout from a growler.

S- Creamy milk chocolate, lactose sugars, light caramel, a bit of marshmellow, nice barrel-presence of rum that doesn't dominate too much, a bit of oak. Fairly aromatic with a nice balance.

T- Creamy milk chocolate, nice balanced rum-barrel presence, hint of caramel sweetness and lactose sugars, a nice oak presence to add to the complexity. Very flavorful, nice barrel-presence, decent complexity.

M- Incredibly smooth typical to most of the Peg's stouts, minimal carbonation but not bad for style, insanely drinkable.

O- Out of all the Nooner stout batches, I'd have to rank this my second favorite right after Nooner batch #4. I'd have to say the last two Nooners make me completely forget that this brewery ever had infection problems and that they definitely make world class stouts. The barrel-aged presence has been just about perfect, balancing out the sweetness while adding a nice complexity. I'd love to try this again and I hope Peg's keeps on turning out beers of this quality.

On tap at Peg's. Served in a snifter.

Appearance - Viscous black. Big khaki head. Lasts forever with a nice collar.

Smell - Rum. Oak. Lactose and milk chocolate. Smells sweet. Weird and chemically.

Taste - Rum again. Oaky. Sweet chocolate. Vanilla. Some coffee toastiness.

Mouthfeel - Medium heavy. Pretty chewy. Well carbonated.

Overall - The smell is weird but it tastes good. The smell went away as it warmed.

Reviewing Nooner Batch 5, a rum barrel aged milk stout from Peg's Cantina & Brewpub out of Gulfport, Florida.

Score: 96

March 2014 vintage bottle served in a footed De Garde tulup and enjoyed on 06/05/14.

Appearance: Jet black in color, totally opaque. Pours about a finger of khaki head that settles to a thin layer. Great lacing and retention. 5/5

Smell: Sweet chocolate, burnt brown sugar, vanilla, molasses, and oak. A touch of dark fruit and a little alcohol heat. Excellent mix. 4.75/5

Taste: Vanilla, burnt chocolate, dark chocolate, oak, dates, and a little wine-reminisce acidity towards the finish. Finishes with oak and chocolate and a kiss of residual vanilla. More oak as the beer warms. 4.25/5

Mouthfeel: Full-medium bodied, appropriate carbonation. Creamy mouthfeel with a lightly dry finish. Good balance. 4.5/5

Overall: Doug makes some excellent stouts, and this brew is a prime example of his talent (if you ever get the chance to try Whiskey Hazelnut DDT, you run to the tap line). Fresh on the tap line, I felt as though there was a bit more vanilla and a little less acidity, but this growler has held up marvelously. Personally, I preferred my pour on the colder side because it masked the oak character a bit more without muting the other flavors. Seek this one out with delicious confidence.

Cost: $20 for a 500 ml growler.
