Peg's Cantina (Cycle Brewing) G.O.O.D RareR D.O.S
The beer pours black as night, motor oil consistency out of the growler, hues of dark brown around the rim of the glass when struck by the light, a thin fizzy caramel colored head appears for a brief moment but recedes into nothingness almost immediately. A touch of film does remain on top of the beer, but there is no apparent lacing as it goes down. The aroma is nice, dark chocolate, charred wood, roasted coffee jump out with a nice smooth lingering rum presence with a touch of sharp fusel alcohol, the nose isn't overly complex but very balanced and inviting. The flavors, however, are truly wonderful. Nice dark chocolate cake flavor with a smooth coffee touch greats the tongue right off the bat with a great wood character, a nice layer of cherry and raisin that leads to a fantastically smooth rum finish with just the faintest vanilla notes lingering behind. The flavors are so perfectly balanced, wonderfully integrated and brilliantly complex, each sip brings out some great nuances that really take this beer to a new level. The body is wonderful, impressively smooth, rich, full bodied and leaves a nice warming sensation as it goes down.
Verdict: A truly inspired beer, the complexity is superb and the smooth body is absolutely fantastic. For anyone who loves a great stout or barrel aged beer, this is a must have.

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
