5/5  rDev +14.7%
look: 5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

A - It has everything it should have, looks-wise. A big big black void of a body, oily and viscous, capped with a sinster rusty-brown head. The brew has serious legs, as I swirl it in the glass. Great looking.

S - The nose is heavy on nuances of creme brulee, vanilla-oak-booze, caramel, and pecan pie. As it airs out, an impression of s'mores is discernible (chocolate + graham + marshmallow + campfire). I love this stuff.

T - The taste follows up on the nose impressively. Huge chocolate notes are intially apparent, followed by softer oak, vanilla, booze and graham cracker impressions. As I get deeper into the brew, I start getting nuances of fudge, chocolate truffles, s'mores, caramel, and perhaps even a subtle dark currant fruitiness. This brew is amazingly complex and so intricately and delicately nuanced (especially for the usually heavy-handed style.) This is literally one of the best beers I have ever had.

M - The carbonation is soft but persistent and is tremendously enhancing. It is perfect. For a -bal it is especially beyond expections.

D - Blown away by this one. It is the smoothest, most decadent and easiest drinking beer of this magnitude and magnificence that I have ever had. (1,209 characters)

I don't normally review any beers but felt compelled to due to how good this beers was.

It had a pretty dark color that smelled amazing. It smelled and tasted like a dark chocolate bar...almost like marshmallow, ginger and cinnamon. The taste is smooth and easy drinking. I really like this beer. I don't get the opportunity to drink that many stouts like this but one I would drink again if I had the opportunity. Cheers! (424 characters)

High gravity night at Peg's. A nice chill in the air as my wife and I sat outside on the deck. Perfect for a nice warming beer.

Poured into a snifter. Opague black nice coffee colored creamy heading. Did settle out to a thin lace and left some nice globs throughout the tasting.

Smell is very intense. Heavy mocha, A slight touch of oak with a decent booziness in the backend.

The taste of this beer is absolutely amazing. Starts off with that heavy one-two of chocolate and coffee. A hot booze flashes across the palate giving you a nice vanilla oak middle. The darker fruits are there in the backend Raisin,plum,etc.

Mouth is silky smooth a touch of hot alcohol to keep it interesting but the texture is out of this world. (Just think velvet and peanut butter). Full bodied and well balanced for heavy stout.

A very complex beer.

Just look at the stats here. This is not favoritism this is the real deal. Bar-none the best stout I have had to date in my short beer tasting journey. (992 characters)

Huge, huge thanks to yourefragile for bringing this over. I'll start by saying that this beer is ridiculously good. In yourefragile's words, "S**t just got real." Served in a SAVOR snifter.

Pour yields a brew that is nearly black with a thin mocha head. Short head fades into a thin cap that disperses into a collar which holds throughout. Thick collar throughout. The nose. Oh, the nose. I'll start by saying that the the nose is about the worst part of this beer. I won't count the appearance for that part. I'll then say that the nose is absolutely fantastic. It simply gets better as it warms. The nose is full of coconut along with a good dosing of whiskey and some roast. Lots and lots of chocolate. Wow, this is really good. At this point, there are only two or three stouts that can rival this. Some oak. Some vanilla. Whatever you want in life, it's there. Basically, look at Arbitrator's review of Black Xantus, and flip everything around.

Flavor. So I just told everyone that this destroys Hunahpu's. Hunhapu's was previously one of my favorite beers. This beer is simply unreal. Loads and loads of coconut go with the whiskey and oak. Good amount of roast in the background and the entire thing is covered in chocolate. What else can I say? It's fantastic. Black Tuesday? Meh. Very few beers are in this realm. Everything melds beautifully. Really out of this world. Why can't I have a growler of this to myself? Or a keg. Or it could be the only non-IPA, non-sour that I ever drink again. I can't get enough this blend.

Mouthfeel. This was the first thing that really popped out. In terms of that, this is the first portion that immediately got a 5 from me. So smooth any creamy. Lots of whiskey, but there's no booze at all. It's just smooth and creamy. Perhaps a hint of alcohol in the finish, but that just perpetuates the feel. Coconut is there again. How did they get all this toasted coconut in there? Vanilla as well. Dessert is there. Wow. To be frank, I've had nearly 3000 different beers, and this is perhaps the best beer that I have ever had. That is all. (2,085 characters)

pre-darkness day brew, leftover from lantern corps beer summit 2010. joey and justin brought a 5gal keg of this one to the party along with gear so that we could fill bottles and everyone could take some home. thanks guys!

this is their regular d.o.s. (short for doug's original stout, if i remember correctly) aged in palm ridge whiskey barrels.

22oz growler. sampled oct 20/2010.

pours deep dark brown, not quite black but still totally opaque. a small fine light brown head forms, dropping fairly fast and leaving tons of spotty lace.

aroma is awesome. vanilla, bourbon, hint of raw oak. coconut. hints of other tropical fruit. definitely makes me think of florida and the tropics. light alcohol. caramel. bit of toffee. dark and milk chocolate. coffee and a bit of espresso. tons of depth and complexity.

taste is also excellent. the taste follows the aroma for the most part, but with more chocolate. picture a hand-made high-end maccaroon - 70%+ pure dark choclate and bourbon and pure unprocessed coconut. light sweetness, but balanced well. while not really hoppy it has a bit of that lingering bitter mouthfeel. doesn't quite seem like chocolate, but not totally hoppy either. medium-low bitterness level, but it does seem to build to a higher level after a while.

mouthfeel is awesome. medium-large body. medium carbonation level. silky smooth. just plain heavenly.

drinkability is amazing. plain and simple, this is a top shelf awesome stout with perfect barrel character. perfect balance. awesome depth and complexity that that work together flawlessly. the only conceivable reason to remove points was on lack of blackness in the colour. this is definitely among not only the best stouts i've ever tasted, but the the best beers too. great stuff! (1,766 characters)

Mucho Thanks to brother-in-law RudyLaw for overtrading for this phenomenal offering. I have been waiting for a beer worthy for my first review, and ALAS this barrel aged beauty was the one.

Drank in Darkness snifters from bottle. First appearance was black pour with perfect viscosity, and 1cm of natural perfect effervescence on top. The first whiff was sweet chocolate, allspice and whiskey, unbelievable nose. As this beer warmed up the warmer accents came to the top and the nose changed to malty, coconutty goodness.

All I can say about the taste is layers and waves of great dark chocolate, coconut, malt, bourbon, and the longer it sat the creamer it got. The natural carbonation forced every flavor into every tastebud. I am shocked this keg filled bottle hung on for this long, but boy was it worth it. I am super stoked I got to drink half of this bottle with RudyLaw and not just settle for a few ounces, every sip was better than the last. (953 characters)

22 oz bottle filled from a keg by the guys at Cigar City, generously shared by grub. A good one for review #2400!

Pours a very opaque black/dark red, some highlights in the corners but no light gets through, very thick and tight tan head forms and settles down to a very thick ring around the glass, tons of lace sticks, and good legs too, real nice.

Smell is insane, one of the best ever, lots of vanilla, bourbon, whiskey, toffee/caramel to the max, rum raisins, brown sugar, a bit of alcohol, some orange peel, sherry, butterscotch, coconut, some chocolate and light coffee roast, mangos, coconut, touch of molasses, super malty and delicious, tons of layers.

Taste is better, chocolate covered Werthers dipped in bourbon, vanilla, rum, whiskey, oak, tons of toffee, more chocolate wafer, raisins, cherry fruitiness, more raisin and date, cocoa powder, biscuit, toasted coconut, tropical fruit, more vanilla, brown sugar, nutty finish, just perfect and it kept going.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied but still a little chewy, with low to medium carbonation, silky smooth. Bit of warmth but alcohol is well hidden. Wow, easily top 2 or 3 best beers I've ever had. An insane amount of layers, and the flavour just keeps going. Among the few beers I never wanted to end. Thanks a ton Russ for sharing this gem! (1,309 characters)

After 2 years of failing to review, this beer was the "one" to break my rating virginity. thank you jw347 for this opportunity. i smelled a combination of chocolate, coconut, and of course vanilla and bourbon. nice mouth feel, the after taste reminded me of biting into a fudge brownie and it lingered a long time. there is also a slight alcohol tinge at the end but it did not affect my overall enjoyment of this beer. it was awesome! (435 characters)

Growler-bottle generously shared by yourefragile at a tasting, much thanks!

Pours a deep chocolate brown with a minimal amount of mocha head, but it leaves some nice lacing after a swirl and a thin layer sticks around for the duration of the drink.

Aroma is whiskey off the bat but upon further review there is some chocolate with minimal amounts of char and some vanillla. this aroma is pretty much perfect for a barrel aged stout.

Taste is somewhat sweet with the wood and char you would expect from a good -bal stout, I also get some toasted coconut and wood flavors. The taste is very well integrated and I really can't think of a way to make this any better.

Mouthfeel is very smooth with a surprising amount of carbonation for an order growler. It coats the mouth and the taste really lingers for quite awhile after the finish. This has got to be one of the best beers I've had and by far the best surprise I've experienced. This one doesn't come up short in any category. (982 characters)

Big thanks to JW for hooking this up. 22oz counter pressure bottle shared with Javier and ArthurPendragon. Poured into a Bruery snifter.

A: It's very dark, essentially black, but you could argue that it's a very dark brown. I don't see the point in thinking too much about this aspect of the beer right now. The head is quite large and a light brown color. Retention is good, and lacing is scattered.

S: An amazingly aromatic blend of coconut, vanilla, chocolate, oak, and whiskey. The chocolate is a mostly dark, but there's a subtle milk flair to it. Molasses is faint. Roasted malt holds a moderate presence, and there's a whisper of coffee. All aspects are balanced, save the coconut, which is more powerful than the rest. As the beer warms, brown sugar is revealed, though it doesn't impart too much sweetness. It begins to remind me of a bourbon chocolate vanilla coconut brown sugar cake. You know what I mean by that.

T: If the aroma was a 5.0, this flavor a 5.5. This is quality stuff. The flavor comes in waves. I would describe the first wave as coconut, chocolate, and bourbon. The second wave immediately follows and might be perceived as moderately roasted malt and oak. Upon the third wave rides vanilla, with coffee trailing. After this, the waves seem to mix and begin striking at random. Roast and whiskey, then vanilla and coconut, then back to roast but this time with a dash of coffee. Is that black licorice? I'm beset by a barrage of coconut and whiskey. Then, when the flavor seems to be dying, it rises up again, eventually fading out with dark chocolate, coconut, oak, and whiskey.

M: Full in body with moderate carbonation. This was a masterful bottling job. Mouthfeel is sticky, silky, chewy, thick, and smooth. Fantastic.

Overall: This is an amazing beer. One of the best barrel aged imperial stouts I've had. Almost in a class of its own. (1,884 characters)

Wow. I only occasionally review, but this was such a mind-melter that I had to review it. Generously shared out of a growler by a gentlemanly BA.

Pours with a small head of quickly receding bubbles, but the dark black body is plenty alluring. The lack of head is really the only downside of this beer, and that may be more a function of the serving format than anything.

The nose on this is just unreal. Lots of fudge/chocolate/brownie, with light notes of whiskey, vanilla, and a bit of booze coming in faintly. For such a big beer, the boozy whiskey is really well integrated.

Flavor is right up there with an BA stout I've ever had. The fudge and brownie flavors from the nose are still there, and the whiskey is well-integrated and relatively subtle. (Palm Ridge isn't a whiskey that I love, but it does amazing things to this beer.) A lot of vanilla sneaks into the edges of the flavor, and there's a nice coconut not that rings through in the finish. Very nice. A tiny bit of heat on the finish, but the lingering flavors are chocolate and coconut more than anything.

Mouthfeel isn't overly viscous, but it's chewy enough to match the big flavor. Just a beautiful beer, and one that I'd love to try again. Worth seeking out for anyone who's into BA stouts. (1,269 characters)

Sooo, this beer. Thanks to Wakefield for sending this. Not the smoothest trade I've had, but that is FedEx's fault. Shared with a few friends. This is a 22 oz hand filled bottle with the same province as the recent Chicago tasting.

Efff this is good. For an eight month old, essentially growler this looks very nice. Silky rich chocolate with a bubbly dark tan head and a splash of a thin film. The aroma is the easily the worst part of this beer that matters and I'm still giving it a 5. As this warms a decadent blend of vanilla, coconut, caramel, milk chocolate, angel's wings, and only mild booze. The body and finish of this are perfect. Coconut and vanilla standout of the body and linger through the finish. Alcohol is prevalent throughout, but well managed and non-intrusive. Best BA stout I've had, no doubt. (818 characters)

Glad I locked this one down when it was in the 90's before its meteoric rise into the top 30. Crazy stuff. Growler (that's what everyone else is calling these counterpressured 22's) shared with my father-in-law who is a big whiskey guy.

The beer pours black with a dark head that leaves a collar on the outside. It smells absolutely fantastic with a mixture of chocolate and bourbon whiksey as well as some good barrel flavors. My father-in-law says Palm Ridge whiskey is not all that good and thinks this "doesn't taste like beer" but what does he know. I'm thankful, leaves more of the beer for me. It's creamy with some moderate carbonation. I don't get much alcohol in this. This is an awesome beer, worth acquiring repeatedly. (732 characters)

Appearance: This beer is jet black with a light brown head that persists throughout. The abundance of lacing lets me know that that this beer means business.
Smell: An extremely potent aroma of bourbon with hints of coffee and chocolate. All of the necessary elements in creating an excellent stout.
Taste: The complexity of the flavors is nothing like I've ever tasted before. A wonderful mixture of coffee bourbon and chocolate where each sip is better than the next.
Mouthfeel: Sticky. Smooth. Drinkable.
Overall: Absolutely ridiculous. This beer is so well balanced it's scary. Who would win in a fight, Doug the brewer, or God? Trick question, Doug the brewer is God. (672 characters)

Huge thanks to tpd975 for the 22 bottom-filled "growler." Shared with my bro-in-law last night.

Dark black pour that has plenty of carbonation and a moderate head upon initial viewing. I should say this has held up like a champion for 9 months out of the keg.

Fudgy brownie and bourbon in the nose. Such a decadent whiff that only gets more intoxicating as it warms. Plenty of vanilla tossed in as well. Just superlative!

This tastes even better than it smells. The bourbon is prominent in the way that it's so smoothing. I've never had Palm Ridge before but I'm signing up for their newsletter going forward! While there is plenty of whiskey in the upfront, it seems more subtle than previous reviews. For whatever the reason, this is exactly what I was hoping for. Coconut, brown sugar, chocolate syrup, a slight roastiness and hints of maple creme all reveal themselves at different times. This seems like it could be a hybrid between Berserker and Kate.

I really can't add much more than that. It's a crime that this isn't available to the masses. Barrel-aging at it's best to a base beer that is simply remarkable. (1,123 characters)

enjoyed on my most recent trip to florida, i had no idea this thing would reach the epicness that it has. says alot for the crazy traders out there for sure! on tap into a 10 ounce glass

black as night oil like liquid which had a huge tan head that really very slowly faded leaving behind lots of gooey sticky brown lace.

chocolate mixed in and a strong alcohol presence. Lots of sweet vanilla and almost a mocha smell as well, very sweet overall.It was smooth, with not alot of carbonation. Huge bourbon whiskey type taste hit me right away as did the alcohol, this was not something to be messed with for sure. Very creamy thick feel and very strong alcohol presentation. Hints at french vanilla and a touch of chocolate rounded out the back side and added a bit of sweetness.

an amazing stout, if they keep brewing beers like this we are all in trouble! (860 characters)

In town for CCB Huna day and to my surprise it's also Tampa Beer Week. Doug, son of Peg and brewer at Peg's and asst brewer at CCB, was an excellent host for this most awesome release, 3/9/2012.

Pitch black elixir into snifter, brown-tan 3mm head, thick lacing, nice.

Coffee, chocolate, burnt malt, whiskey, well blended. Really took my time, with the nose buried into the snifter enjoying each pull.

Wow, this hits it. Complex and I mean balanced, flavors of whiskey, coffee, chocolate, nut, malt, sweat vanilla come through, nice bitterness lingers. Well made.

Full bodied, smooth, thick but not cloying.

Few brews equal the hype and this is one. (654 characters)

Big ups for a balls out growler sharing from Sean via jw347 at our Memorial Day tasting.

A - Brown beer with a late rising brown head that stuck around for a second before fading to a bit of a tight ring with the slightest bit of lace.

S - Rich chocolate smell with some fudge, brown sugar, and a great solid whiskey taste if you're into that sort of thing (which I completely am). The balance of the hard liquor and roasted malts is unbelievable on this.

T - This might be the ultimate blend of chocolate, roasted malts, and whiskey. The whiskey is so well blended that it actually works well when it is hot. I can see this aging well and the whiskey mellowing, but it's only going to be good in a different way. This beer is ready to drink now and later. Awesome malt, barrel, and whiskey blend with the perfect touch of char and roasted malts. Wow, shocker in how good this is.

M - Rich, full bodied, moderate carbonation.

O - Had never heard of Peg's until this beer came out, but it is truly an amazing take on the style. I can't think of many beers of the style I've had lately that have been better than this. (1,122 characters)

HUGE thanks to Sean via Wakefield for this tick that I missed by a day when I went to Hunahpu.. drank with the Chicago Crew... black body with almost no head... the aroma is unreal, awesome chocolate, fudge brownie, brown sugar, light sweet whiskey and coconut... one of the rare circumstances where the taste equals the nose, perfect fudge brownies with whiskey, a little roast and chocolate, and coconut, my only complaint is the very back of the finish is a bit alocholic... this is awesome and well worth heading to Peg’s for, Peg’s is the real deal (557 characters)

Have had this one several times and I am glad to see it getting the respect it deserves.

A: It pours a nice deep dark black hue with a tall mocha head. Wonderful retention and tons of lace.

S: Aromas are rich and roasty. Tons of chocolate, vanilla, and coconut. The wood from the barrel is there with a touch of booze.

T: The flavor is where this one really shines. You could put an average beer in a Palm Ridge barrel and get a great result. Make no mistake about it though the base beer in this one is more than just good. Loads of Roasted Chocolate, and bold bold coconut, like a Mounds bar. Hints of vanilla and oak. Subtle coffee notes to round things out. Really is a great great beer.

M: Full in body, bold, rich, smooth.

D: Could drink it until I pass out.

Doug I have a Fresh Palm Ridge barrel could I twist your arm into making me a keg? :) (856 characters)

Received 6 Small growlers from Peg's - FedExed by friend to Texas. I was surprised by how good this beer really is.

A - Pours almost pure black. Very dark, small wisps of dark foam. A few lines of bubbles continue to create small bubble colonies.

S - Rich and boozy. Well developed with dark fruits, wood and whiskey.

T - Very complex and layered. Flavor goes through a process of revealing different characteristics over about 15 seconds. Tannins first - woody tang. Subtle whiskey. Then the "dark fruits" and finally roasty flavors that pleasantly hang for some time. Warming.

M - Mouthfeel is wonderfully silky and rich.

O - A nearly perfect beer. (657 characters)

Had on tap, 11-11-11 high gravity night at peg's cantina.
A: Pitch black with a light tan head. Starts a perfect 1 finger and slowly dissipates into a consistent tan rim.
S: Chocolate covered cherries galore! A bit woody with lots of bourbon in this batch. Dark fruit with hints of vanilla and coffee.
T: lots of well blended bourbon, mingling with chocolate and vanilla silk. Creamy full flavored, with excellent wood notes. Pretty outstanding. After taste of tootsie roll and smokey bourbon and bittersweet chocolate.
M: Silky smooth, on the middle end of big bodied. Very wet with huge lingering after taste.
O: What a treat! Just too delicious for the gravity. Can't put this one down for a second. (702 characters)

Had this boy on tap at Peg's for the BA release on March 9, 2012. Poured a jet back into a 12oz snifter. Sweet aroma, vanilla, cocoa, and sticky sweet alcohol. While it was still cold it makes for a little underwhelming... LET IT WARM. As it warms there is a great balance of chocolate, vanilla, and oak. Very smooth and wonderfully balanced. This was quite delicious. (368 characters)

22 oz pressure filled growler provided by Sean from jw347. Thanks for the chance to taste this.

A light carbonation with black body and minimal head. The smell is literally awesome...chocolate fudge, dark fruits, toffee, maple, and whiskey barrel. The taste is smooth with the chocolate and tobacco notes as one of the better beers I've had in while. The mouthfeel is smooth with an almost perfect texture and the alcohol is hidden very well for a barrel-aged stout. This is the best barrel aged stout I've had this year. This is one one I want to have more of again...soon. I highly recommend getting your hands on this sometime soon. What a great beer. I hope Peg's brews its again. Seek it out!!! (700 characters)

Thanks so much to yourfragile to bringing this to our tasting! Thanks Mike, this an amazing find!

Ok, so I'm coming out of beer rating retirement to review this phenomenal beer. This beer is easily in my top 5 favorite beers.
A: pours jet back with with tan lacing that sticks around.
S: The smell is amazing - so much dark chocolate, rich bourbon notes, and strong vanilla and coconut
T: Wow! This is amazing! The combination of fudge, vanilla, coconut, maple syrup, toffee, and high quality bourbon is out of this world! The caramel after taste linger on for sooo long!
M: The mouthfeel is the best - soooo smooth and creamy. It's also very thick - almost like a Dark Lord.
O: This is one of the best beers out there. Absolutely phenomenal and worthy of all the praise. You should seek out this beer, it is awesome! (818 characters)
