Growlerette received in trade from MeadMe, thanks for the opportunity.
Pours a thick inky black color with a tiny tan head that dissipates quickly. The aroma is heavy on the alcohol and rum with bits of roast, chocolate, dark pitted fruit and caramel. The flavor is chocolate, brown sugar, and caramel with a heavy presence of ethanol, rum and bits of earthy wood. Faint smokey malt and bits of dark fruit round out the flavor nicely. Medium to thick body with a light level of carbonation, and a slick, oily mouthfeel. This one gets a bit hot and is a sipper to be sure. This grew on me as I got towards the end.

12oz. waxed flip-top growler into a Brooklyn Brewery snifter. Shared with schen9303.

Pours pitch black with a .5 finger of dark mocha head with poor retention. Lacing is spotty, stringy and sparse with little stick but huge, oily legs that really coat the glass. Decent considering the serving and beer style.

Nose is dark fruit, sweet raspberry, chocolate, cocoa, and roasted malt. Rather subtle with a sweet and very mellow tartness. I wonder if this one is starting to get a bit infected...

Opens slightly tart dark fruit. Chocolate, cocoa, and fudge in the middle with still, a slightly tart and sweet dark prune and plum presence. Finish is molasses, chocolate, and more dark fruit. Aftertaste is a mellow booziness with a slight roasted malt sweet and tartness. This one grew on me with time. Solid overall.

Full bodied with low carbonation. Smooth, thick, and silky in the mouth and goes down warm and subtle. Messy finish with a sticky aftertaste. One of the thicker beers I've had from this style. Real smooth though.

A very well crafted beer overall but this is a far cry from Rare DOS which was one of the best beers of its style. A touch too much fruit presence for my taste and not as sweet as I'd like. However, the feel is there, as is the complexity. Drink this one now if you have it. It's not getting any better with age.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Appearance: A fairly hard pour produces a half inch of mocha foam that quickly fades to a ringlet and archipelago; some dots of lace linger behind

Smell: Rum dominates the aroma to such an extent that it is hard to pick up anything else, except perhaps for a hint of blackberry

Taste: As in the aroma, the rum is dominant, though there are chocolate, oak, vanilla and blackberry tones underneath; the sweetness builds, like sorghum syrup, through the middle and into the finish, where the blackberry returns to deliver a slight amount of tartness

Mouthfeel: Full bodied and rather viscous, with low carbonation

Overall: Well, I am clearly in the minority on this one, but I want the barrel to complement rather than dominate the base beer; this beer tastes primarily like rum with a thick mouthfeel and only a modest alcohol burn; I can see why it is highly rated but it is not my thing

Thanks, Deltoro, for the opportunity
