1725th Review on BA
Growler to CycleBrewing Snifter
500ml

Shared with GuruDel
Thanks to Hoppy99 for this one

App- This poured out of the growler with a little hiss. I had been holiding it for the right time and SB was that time. A big black inky pour. Along the lines of a BCS or that nature, with less bubbles. A bit flat and still. Maybe a 1/16" of bubbles around the edges.

Smell- This had a lot going on in the nose. It was highly creamy and malty and a bit rich and smooth at the same time. The dark fruits along with the vanilla, oak, rum and bakers chocoalate really rounded it out. Most things were subtle on this and took a while to find them all. Was a bit over temp for me to smell them.

Taste- I enjoyed this but really wasnt blown away. It was smooth and creamy but retained a certain bitter and grainy rum flavor that didnt really do it for me. The dark fruits and the blending of chocolate/vanilla made this one a bit of a off beer for me, but with the hype it was bound to happen. Still a very good stout with a lot of layers and complexity in the glass.

Mouth- The best part of this beer by far. The creamy body was a bit deep and low and the solid low carbonation with its thickness, enhanced all the flavors quite well. A bit delicate and thick at the same time but lots going on and very flavorful.

Drink- This was a huge want of mine and I cant thank Hoppy99 enough. A great beer that I was able to share with a drinking buddy and enjoy while watching the SB. I was a tad let down, but with Whales it happens. Still better than 95% of whats out there.

Growler filled April, 2013

Appearance: Black with tan head that leaves rather quickly and a ring remains with a little lacing.

Smell: It really is a bit subdued, hopefully as it warms up a bit the nose will become more apparent. After a while getting slight coffee, milk chocolate and alcohol. After 30 minutes (went out for a drive) I'm getting a little dark fruit on the nose.

Taste: Ah, this is what it's all about! Chocolate, dark fruit, a very slight booziness in the finish; almost a chocolate milkshake flavor, interesting. Very, very nice.

Mouthfeel: This is where it falls a little flat, too thin. This factor seems a bit odd and doesn't jive with everything else it has going for it.

Overall: So glad to finally crack this as I have been holding on to it for about 14 months. Damn, if only the mouthfeel was better it would score above the average. Still a wonderful experience! Now, if someone would send me one that was released today I could part with a Damon, ha-HA!

RareR Dos 2014 Release

My 450th beer rating, deserves a review..

A: Jet Black, Minimal to No head. Motor Oil.
S: I get lots of chocolate, some vanilla, some fruit, some rum. Very sweet.
T: Full body, thick and almost chewy with slightly lower carbonation. Not too boozy, but at the same time the rum barrels are there! I got more rum from the taste as opposed to the smell.
F/M: Creamy goodness, yet very light
O: I was very pleased with this beer, and it lived up to my expectations and hype. I am certainly interested to see how this will age in bottles and other BA offerings from Cycle/Pegs in the future..
