300th review of a beer I never expected to drink. Thanks a bunch to Mposha for the 16oz swingtop Growler. 19 written on the check mark next to RareR D.O.S
A Flat black pour that's pretty much opaque except for thinner areas. Pretty much no head at all which leads to no lacing.
S Big time barrel. Sweet dark fruits, vanilla, sweet not hot alcohol (Bourbon? Rum?) Smells amazing
T Sweetness from front to back but not cloying. Vanilla, burnt sugars, chocolate, integrated bourbon, coconut and a bit of heat. Each sip is great and specific flavors can be found when looking for them. Top notch stout that lives up to the hype.
M Heavy feel like a Zhukov with very little carbonation. Big chewy and viscous, im curious what the final gravity was.
O Unbelievable beer that without a doubt lives up to the hype. Without a doubt top 5 beer I've ever had regardless of scores.

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..
