Shared by yourefragile. Thanks Mike!

The beer is brown with a nice looking head and spotty lacing. The aroma is quite complex, bringing coconut, whiskey, vanilla, oak, toffee, roast. Amazing flavor. Just incredibly smooth, wonderfully complex, and no heat whatsoever. Terrific balance. One of the best barrel aged stouts I have had. World class.

Consumed last weekend with a friend, reviewed from memory. I will update this once I've drank another growler and given it a more formal review.

A- Pours pitch black with a small brown head that quickly recedes into a circle around the edge of the glass. Appears to be very thick, no carbonation visible. Right on for the style.

S- Smells of rich chocolate, coffee, and vanilla. Not in the least bit overpowering, just incredibly inviting.

T- Taste follows the smell- up front there is a bit of a bourbon barrel bite that is followed up by very strong vanilla, caramel, milk chocolate and roast notes. This beer is clearly on the upper echelon of BA stouts.

M- Thick, as expected. No notable carbonation. Full mouth feel, this is a very rich beer. For as big of a beer as it is, it went down very easily and was extremely drinkable.

O- Absolutely fantastic beer from a brewery I haven't had the pleasure of trying before. After drinking, I immediately started searching for more, if that is any indicator of how good it is.

Poured on draught at the brewpub during barrel aged day, into a snifter
From notes taken 3/9/12

A: pitch black with some Browning on the edges,light mocha head that's just an outer rim by the time its served to me, leaves a trace amount of lacing

S: big bourbon aroma, some dark fruits, raisin and fig, a hint of milk chocolate, some booze , very inviting

T: big milk chocolate character, nice rich bourbon , dark fruits of raisin and plum, bourbon character is good but not overwhelming by any means, dark bitter chocolate on the finish, the coconut flavor comes out about halfway through the glass, great lingering aftertaste of chocolate, black coffee, and a touch of dark fruit sweetness,  really fantastic.  

M/D: incredibly smooth, coats the palate wonderfully, thick and chewy Mouthfeel, full bodied, appropriately low carbonation.  Good drinkability.  Perfect Mouthfeel here

O: .  Lived up to the hype.  One of the smoothest, easiest drinkinh stouts I've had, with a terrific flavor profile.  One of the best beers I have ever had the pleasure of drinking. World class.

Reviewed from notes. Had on-tap at Peg's, poured into a snifter.

A: This thing is dark dark, with only a bit of foam at the top. Appears quite opaque.

S: Coffee, chocolate aromas dominate.

T: Wow, this is good. Smooth, round chocolate & coffee malt flavors. Just a bit of spiciness, with a nice vanilla presence.

M: Creamy smooth mouthfeel, and finishes with a cacao sweetness. The hang is a bit dry.

O: Really really good. My first time having this one, and I would definitely have it again when it's around. Maybe a bit similar to CCB's Hunahpu, but no pepper bite and not nearly the molasses. Neither of those things detract from the overall impression of this beer, however. It certainly lived up to the hype.

This is the real deal and plenty deserving of the hype.

A: Pitch black body with a medium sized khaki cap (about 3/4 of an inch). Spotty, soapy lacing.

S: Whiskey, coconut, vanilla, chocolate, dark lightly roasted malts, a bit caramel and slightest bit of generic boozeyness.

T: Much like the nose with strong, assertive notes that were well integrated yet distinct and discernable. The coconut almost gives this a "tropical" imperial stout feel.

M: Smooth, medium-full bodied. Perfectly carbonated allowing this beer to coat the tongue but move allowing each flavor to impact the senses.

O: Just about perfect... on tap and not out of the growler might have helped the nose enough to push this thing over the top.

Huge thanks for jw347 for sending this our way. 22oz counter-pressure-filled growler, served in a Russian River tulip.

A - Late-rising thin wisp of tan foam that settles to a thin ring and leaves behind some tiny spots of lace. Black body that has a touch of transparent brown at the top fringe.

S - Rich chocolate fudge, nuts, whiskey, oak and barrel flavors, marshmallow, and perhaps the faintest hint of alcohol.

T - The taste is better, and is pretty much perfect for the style. It's a superb mix of chocolate fudge, vanilla, coconut, oak, whiskey, s'mores, dark fruits, caramel and so on. It's in the top five beers I've ever tasted.

M - Smooth chocolate texture, full-bodied, lower carbonation, light tannic finish and well-hidden alcohol. Not sure what else I'd want from a barrel-aged Imperial Stout.

D - This is a superb beer, and absolutely essential for any lover of -bal aged stouts. I know it's a pain in the ass to get this outside of the brewpub due to Florida laws, so hardcore tickers are gonna have to make the trip. I'm certainly working Peg's into my next Tampa excursion. I thought Brandy Hunahpu's was the best stout from Florida...I was wrong.

8 month old growler shared by yourefragile. Awesome, thanks Mike!

Beer is dark brown to black with a wispy tan head of small head some lacing moderate carbonation.

Aroma is sweet, bourbon, nice roast. Some chocolate with a mild vanilla coming through. The bourbon is strong and beer smells sweet but it is not overpowering or violating, it just smells great.

The star of the night for sure, this beer is really great. The lead off is sweet, with mild carbonation, just dancing on the tongue with a sweet, thick lead off that gives way to a great bourbon / whiskey character on the get go. The vanilla is mild but present and flavorful, giving the back sweetness something to say that isn't all about the booze in the front half. Some say that they taste a little coconut and perhaps through the power of suggestion I can too but it is not prominent. The finish is nice, coating, creamy but with a moderate bitterness, no aftertaste and not too dry. There is no aftertaste like I stated before but the flavors linger throughout the palate and mouth. Very great beer.

On-tap at Peg's on 3/8/13.

A- Pours pitch black, very thick and sticky, produces a tiny khaki head. Some spilled on my hand and quickly dried into a sticky, dark patch, damn intense.

S- Big chocolate fudge and cake aroma, really nice sweet, rich bourbon and oak aromas.

T- Similar to the aroma, if anything dialed up slightly. Loads of dark chocolate, cake, bourbon, oak, vanilla and a really delicious coconut flavor. Mild roasty flavors. All of these flavors are sweet, rich and blended together really nicely.

M- Full-bodied, low carbonation, thick, sticky, viscous, mild boozy finish.

O- An amazing beer, of all the variants on-tap today this was still probably my favorite, it really is a fantastic beer.

16oz growler sent from MrSquash

Pitch black and a creamy head that's as dark as it gets. Sexy lacing and legging.

Sweet caramel, cinnamon, and cocoa. Warming bourbon and vanilla oak. Substantially sweeter than RareR from what I remember. So far so good.

Exquisitely balanced. Brown sugar, sweet bourbon, vanilla bean, charred oak, caramel, a bit of chocolate cake... all things that are nice.

Shit's bangin.

Review from notes. Thanks to Aaron and co for convincing me to come out instead of studying.

Poured oily black with only a few streaks of white lace on top. Huge on the roastiness, mocha, roasted coffee beans, burnt toast, and the bourbon. Oh my, the bourbon is everywhere! Vanilla, milk chocolate, complex layers of oak, dark fruits, and toffee. Could use a bit more body, but other than that, I'm sold. This was quite a treat.

Reviewed from notes. On tap at Peg's Catina during their end of the world party on December 21st, 2012. I was lucky enough to get the last glass of this fine brew of the night. They served it to me in a Cycle Brewing Snifter.

This dark mysterious liquid poured a solid black leather color. Were you expecting any other color? Don't hold this beer up into the light or you'll go blind. Light will bounce off this beer's solid black color. On top was a 1/4 of an inch dark tan almost coffee colored head of foam. Good retention that left behind a string of foamy rings along the side and only a few blots of lace around the glass.

It had a very well balanced aroma. The first two aromas that came me was of course the bourbon and charred oak. The bourbon wasn't over powering. It was very pleasant. Quickly following the bourbon was the rich aroma of roasted coffee beans. After the coffee beans had their time in the sun, in comes the dark chocolate, roasted malt, black cherry, raisins, and a nice whiff of vanilla. Very nice aroma!

The taste was surprisingly not overpowering or boozy. It was very well balanced. The first taste was, you guessed it, the bourbon. The beer didn't let the bourbon run away with the taste. Following the bourbon was a some charred oak, roasted malt, roasted coffee beans, molasses, bitter dark chocolate, black cherry, and then the taste finishes up with a subtle taste of vanilla to send this beer off. Very nice roasted bourbon taste.

The mouthfeel was full bodied and a bit on the dry side. It had a nice full flavored sweet aftertaste of bourbon, charred oak, black cherry, dark chocolate, and vanilla. It completely masked the ABV %.

Another wonderful beer from Peg's that night. I wish that I could have got another glass of this super fine brew. It was a very well balanced bourbon barrel aged Imperial Stout. It didn't let anything completely take over the beer. The only thing that was out of control in this beer was the beer's rich flavors and that's a good thing. Is it worth a shot? You bet your ass it is!

22 oz bottle into an oversized tulip glass. Huge thanks to JW347 for hooking me up with this, which was hand bottled directly off of a keg. This is their Imperial Stout which has been aged in a spent Palm Ridge Reserve whiskey barrel.

Pours a dense flat black in the glass, with a stiff rich finger of slightly dark mocha colored head. This retains with about half of that, as a smooth and creamy layer of frothiness just showers the sides of the glass with robust lacing and sticky gooiness. Wow, is the aroma rich in the nose or what? The nose is just dominated by brown sugar and molasses flavors but thick notes of baker's chocolate and roasted coffee sit underneath with a pretty heady feeling presence of their own. Wood and warmth soak the edges of the nose and even stings the eyes a little bit. This is just so rich and decadent smelling. Nice!

The taste starts with a BIG, thick, and dark base of chocolate, vanilla, caramel, molasses, brown sugar, and maybe even a little dark fruit. Pretty much any type of sweetness that you can think of just drenches the mouth with stickiness before trailing into a backend of dark malt and coffee character that lends this a roasty and astringent finish. The woodiness of the barrel is very well integrated here and nicely compliments the roasted flavors with some charred tannic dryness of its own. The mouthfeel is full bodied, with a huge feel to it that fills the mouths up with all of those rich flavors. The carbonation has a soft creaminess to it that sits on top of a much heavier feeling syrupy slickness underneath. There is a sweet whiskey burn to this that stings the tongue a little and a fair share of alcohol warmth that sinks to the bottom of the glass (and sticks in the throat and chest after those last few sips) but this is overall pretty smooth feeling for size of this, which I'm guessing has to be in the 10%+ range here.

This was quite fantastic stuff and really has Peg's Cantina on my radar now! The whiskey barrel really brought the goods here, with no lack of sticky and charred molasses character, while the base Stout delivered its own powerful mix of flavors for it to latch on to. This was quite lush, balanced, and delicious. Sure it's got some beefy heat going on with it but I didn't feel like it harmed the flavors at all and you have to expect to take your time with a beer like this anyway. I loved it!

Most recent match in July '13, poured from the Growler into my Tulip. Thanks Glen!

A: Dark with a nice off-white rim, not a lot of head on this but the rim stays put, a fair amount of lacing as I drink through it.

S: Chocolate, Vanilla, Roasted Malts dominate

T: The chocolate and vanilla really hit up front as well as a roastiness. The back-end is much sweeter than you'd normally expect, I'm assuming its coming from dark fruits as it almost tastes like it has wine barrel in it (which it doesn't so perhaps I'm crazy). Its a very enjoyable taste however.

M: Medium bodied, just right.

O: Very enjoyable brew, just as good as I last remember it. I'm glad I was able to drink a full pour to myself vs. small pours at a tasting.

In town for a Cigar City release, I read that Peg's was tapping this guy on Sunday at noon. We arrived at 11:55 and Eric, the excellent barkeep, told us it would be a few minutes. Within moments, before us were the first glasses of Rare D.O.S. and I was prepared to be disappointed. There's no way it's as good as everyone says, right?

On tap into a Cigar City snifter.

Appearance - Jet black body with an ample chocolate head. It dies down a little quickly to a brown ring around the top. Wisps of lace on the surface and as I swirl it around, staining the inside of the glass. Nice.

Smell - Bourbon, oh my. A second whiff reveals some coconut and strong dark chocolate. More bourbon ensues. Wow.

Taste - Much like the aroma, only richer. Bourbon with coconut and chocolate at first. A nice, caramel midrange flavor (with bourbon) followed by a rich, dark chocolate creaminess (with bourbon) and a coffee bitterness in the finish (with some bourbon). Loads of bourbon, but somehow it never overwhelms the other flavors.

Mouthfeel - Great body. Thick and chewy, but it isn't sweet. Hardly any alcohol burn. Perfect for a stout of this caliber.

Overall - Nearly perfect in every way. One of the best bourbon stouts I've ever had. I'm stunned. I was prepared to drink a beer that had been overhyped, but it is delicious. If you're in the area when this is tapped, make your way over. Friendly staff, good food, and a tour by Doug the brewer made this quite the Sunday lunch event.

Opened from a swing top growler with a nice pop! Shared by Duffman929, much thanks. Appearance is a thick and viscous pitch black with dark brown head. The nose is amazing, loaded with vanilla, cocoa, and coffee with notes of oak at the back. Very robust and roasty all the way through. The taste is nice and smooth with more chocolate and vanilla with the bourbon well integrated and some additional notes of char, smoke, and coconut. Mouthfeel is full bodied and smooth. Overall, digging this one more than RareR, perhaps this is due to my preference of bourbon over rum. Definitely worth a try... you really can taste the rare... I think.

On-tap at the source into a snifter.

A - Pours black, two fingers worth of thick mocha-colored head, nice retention and great lacing along the sides of the glass. Pretty much has it all going on here.

S - Sweet milk chocolate, nice oak, burnt sugars, good amount of dark fruits and orange peel. The huge sweetness is like sniffing desert in a glass. No real alcohol detection, very slight and well-hidden.

T - Lots of chocolate, burnt sugars, caramel, toffee, oak. Like the nose, dominated by decedant sweetness. Death by chocolate? Alcohol is hidden wonderfully. The lack of roast and the dark fruits on the finish take away from my total enjoyment.

M - Full, rich and smooth, light carbonation, creamy finish.

D - Very impressive BA stout from this little place. I was lucky enough to get the last pour because the keg kicked towards the end. Would have again, although it's "death by chocolate" after too many.

Edit: Had from a growler thanks to Jw347, thanks so much for sharing with with Chicago crew! The age from the growler smoothed things out and increased the roast and and sweetness. The Palm Ridge Whiskey notes are there, but a lot more subtle. Just super-impressive. Hard to really find any faults with this beer, besides the appearance out of the bomber (on-tap, it was perfect-looking). A must-try!

Had as a pre-game to the 2nd Annual Redneck Racin’ & Tastin’! Big thanks goes out to BRoss242 for this one! HOLY CRAP! I can’t believe I’m finally getting to tick this one! Served from growler into an Ommegang Three Philosophers chalice. Poured pitch black with a minimal light brown head. Maintained decent lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, dark chocolate, wood, and milk chocolate. The flavor was of sweet malt, dark chocolate, wood, dark fruit, milk chocolate, and subtle sweet alcohol. It had a heavy feel on the palate with mild carbonation. Overall this was a fairly great brew. I still can’t believe I got to tick this one after such a long time! This was a really well balanced and enjoyable brew. The chocolate note I got on this one was really the star of it for me while adding a nice vanilla note. The same could be said for the aroma as well to help out. Definitely one of the better brews I’ve had this year. A MUST try!

6oz into a snifter

A: Pours pitch black with a half finger of off white head. Settles quickly to a ring.

S: Dark chocolate, sweet toffee, a touch of roasted malt, and strong bourbon and booze.

T: Surprisingly balanced, not nearly as sweet as the aroma. Equal parts roast, toffee, dark fruit, and bourbon. Light coconut in the background. So complex, yet not overwhelming.

M: Thick, creamy, and perfectly carbonated.

O: Very well balanced sweetness and roast, very enjoyable. Certainly on the sweeter side of stouts, but this beer is phenomenal.

Thanks to Bucketboy for this one. Full 6oz. pour from a 64oz. growler into a TJ’s snifter. Had at a tasting on 9/4/11.

.5 finger mocha head with low retention. Beer is opaque black. Spotty lace with great stick and nice legs.

Nose is molasses, chocolate, brownie, very subtle sweet soy sauce and booze. Aromatic and very much to style. Some vanilla creaminess too.

Opens sweet molasses. Vanilla, chocolate, mocha, and coconut on the back end. More chocolate and some creamy hop bitterness towards the middle-end. End is milk chocolate and vanilla. Aftertaste is coconut bits and more vanilla.

Medium bodied with low retention. Smooth and silky in the mouth and some slight bubbles going down. Smooths out intensely as it warms. Rich finish with a subtle lingering aftertaste.

I’m not a slave to hype and I think that for the most part, my reviews reflect that stance. That being said, this beer is the real deal. Incredible mouthfeel and a wonderfully complex flavor profile that reflects everything good about the imperial stout style. Worth the acclaim and worth tracking down for sure.

Review #1300!

Pretty awesome experience at Peg's and then some. My wife and I just got back from a vacation to Disney/Universal and made the trek to the Tampa area for three days. Of course, I had to stop at Peg's. I had been keeping up with their Facebook two weeks prior to our visit and knew this beer had been and gone. We went into the place with no assumptions about getting to try it whatsoever... we just stopped by for great beer. However, that didn't stop me from asking the bartender about it. Once I did and identified myself as a beer geek active on BA, she gave me a smirk and whispered, "Just wait here (wink.... wink). The rest is history.

A: Poured inky, black, and very vicious. Sort reminded me of Venom from the Spider-Man lore. Not much head... just a few bubbles.

S: Understated overall, but a good bit of molasses, dates and figs. This was not a chocolate/cocoa-based beer.

T: The dark fruit stained the teeth even on the aftertaste. Wow... so unique! I got a slight bit of raw cacao on the finish on top of the fruit, but nothing to write home about.

M: Silky and creamy... approaching nitro tap even. I've noticed a lot of Peg's dark entries exhibit that trait. Thick, but still not snot-like.

O: I will rank this up there with amongst the best IS I've ever had on-tap!

A: Jet black body with a very minimal head that is mocha brown.

S: Heavy roast and heavy chocolate dominate the aroma of this beer. Much better then the RareR. The bourbon here blends nicely with the body and adds vanilla and oaky qualities.

T: The flavor is heavy bitter chocolate in the front with coffee, smoke, and toffee in the back. There is a sweetness but the bitter from the grains cuts through it nicely. Vanilla, bourbon, oak, and earth come through as a clear result from the barrel aging process.

M: The thickness of the beer is perfect. The beer is slightly undercarbonated but that is probably the result of it being in a growler for about a month. They should consider putting this beer in an actual bottle.

O: Amazing beer. Happy I didn't receive an infected one. Huge roast characters that are mellowed down nicely by the barrel aging. Well worth seeing out. This is a must try (assuming its not infected.) You can taste the rareness.

Lots of barrel in the nose with oak, coconut, vanilla and bourbon. I get notes of dark fruits, mostly prunes, with a thick chocolate tone and a sweet toffee.

This is a delicious dessert as it has a thick smooth chocolate shake like presence. Barrel qualities are strong with roasted coconut and vanilla but late on maple, molasses and dark fruit come through. Overall it is so well done and decadent.

Pours a dark reddish brown with a nice light brown head... Looks very solid. A gorgeous beer... Smells sweet and candied. Chocolate malts and a touch of roast with whiskey underneath. A really nice aroma. Tastes sweet and chocolatey. Nice taste. Starts a bit bitter... Booze coming in the middle. Decent amount of vanilla whiskey in the middle too. Finishes a bit tanic. Moutfeel is solid... Well carbonated, thick and maybe a touch syrupy but not too thick, overall very nice

On tap at the LCBS 10. Black pour with a big brown head. Sweet bourbon and roasted malt aromas. The taste was sweet and smooth. Loaded with bourbon, vanilla, caramel malt, chocolate, and just a hint of coffee. Dak was spot on at the tasting and on his rating. This stout does taste a lot like Older Viscosity...

Tap at Peg's for Berliner Bash. Near ink pour with rich, reverse cascade mocha head. Not too much lace. Nose is tawny, black pepper, bourbon richness, melted fudge. Taste is quite rich and on style- buttery bourbon, melted dark chocolate fudge, vanilla. Spicy wood finish. A bit dry through the end. Still, quite delicious. Really like the palate on this one. Doesn’t really improve as it warms.
