16 ounce growler poured into 10 ounce Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Stout snifter.
A: Pour is thick and muddy. This one has sat in the growler for about 2 months and looks to be fairly low on carbonation, although a thin layer of mocha colored foam briefly makes an appearance across the top of the beer. Swirling surprisingly provides a consistent ring around the edge of the glass. I'm a bit torn on how to rate the appearance on this one, as I realize the lack of head is in part attributable to this sitting in a growler for 2 months.
S: My first rum barrel stout and I enjoy the contribution to the nose this spirit provides. Picking up a nice amount of dark fruits in this, along with milk chocolate, vanilla, and an underlying roastiness. Smell indicates this will be moderately sweet.
T: Really interesting complexity here. Opens up all fruit, mainly cherries. There is a distinct point when this transitions on the tongue from sweet dark fruits to a roasty dark chocolate with underlying coffee. This isn't an experience I have had with many other beers but makes for tremendously interesting drinking. The rum appears at the very end and ties everything together.
M: The low carbonation apparent on the pour carries over into the mouthfeel. It actually works for this beer though and contributes a silky, creamy, and thick feel. This is one of the thicker stouts I've had; it really coats the tongue.
O: I really enjoyed this beer. Chocolate covered cherries blend with roasted coffee and bittersweet chocolate. The rum presence is light but apparent on the back end. Really glad I had the opportunity to enjoy this one.

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..
Serving type: bottle
