Thanks to Hunter for the trade on this! Popped open a 500ml growler dated 12-21-12 on 01/11/13.

A: Growler was filled up to the very top of the swing-top. Had a small hiss when I opened it...nice. Pours a deep black with very light and quickly fading carbonation. Thick, I was super exicted when I poured this beer...

S: Smell was slightly better than the taste, but as soon as I opened the bottle and even moreso when I poured the beer, strong notes of sweet rum, choc, syrup...all those great dark notes...smelled really complex and nice....even more exicted!

T: First taste...wow!, really smooth, surprisingly no taste of any alcohol, only nice flavors with a mild sweetness....rum, molasses, maybe some figs (i don't want to get to crazy here...It was really good,,,lets just say that!) . I did not rate this a 5 because the flavors did not linger and faded a bit more quickly than I expected. Don't get me wrong, it is awesome!

M: Nice, not overpowering and super-syrupy...very very drinkable!

O: Really, really good. Lots of flavors and tastes!

500ml poured into an Eagle Rock snifter.

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.

500ml growler from the second batch, into a snifter.

A: Pours a blackish-brown coffee color with a small tan head. Glugs out of the growler viscously.

S: Richly sweet caramel and molasses, woody, a bit of herbal rum character, marshmallow. Alcohol notes mix with the sweetness.

T: Not quite as sweet as the nose, with some dry roasted malt and tannins, cocoa, light vanilla and toffee. The rum lends some green nuttiness to the beer which doesn't show up in whiskey barrel-aged beers.

M: Thick-bodied with very light carbonation.

O: Very good, and certainly a lot better than other rum barrel-aged beers I've had.

Thanks for sharing Thomas Poured thick like motor oil, with a smell and taste that was reminiscent of Apple brandy huna. Subtle vanilla and booz with great barrel aging characteristics. I didn’t pick up the rum, but def caught the booze. I felt like I needed to keep wiping my teeth when in discussion to avoid looking like a sunk them into liquid brownies

Gloops out of the growler with a syrup-like consistency. Caramely roast in the nose, could be a tad more pungent.

Body is extremely viscous; coats the mouth more fully than almost any beer I've ever had. Wow... Been a long time since I was this enamored by a beer's mouthfeel.

Roasted malts, caramel, barrels, and booze all combine to create an incredible BA stout profile. Complex, yet smooth and damn near sessionable. Superbly refined; demonstrates an utter mastery of the brewing process. Bravo.

4.58/5  rDev +2.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

Pitch black, pretty oily and viscous with a 1cm tan head with pretty short retention and spotty lace.

Very deep dark rich nose. Very bold but I wouldn't say incredibly complex. Muted dark chocolate, a touch of soy sauce, dark fruit and molasses.

Flavor on the other hand is incredibly complex. A huge range of flavor and a little different from many stouts if its kinds. Notes of graham, chocolate, mocha. It changes quite a bit from beginning to end resembling a range of desserts like tiramisu.

Mouth is full bodied and sticky with a low and creamy carbonation.

Overall this is a phenomenal beer. The only downfall is the nose which is pretty much one note, but the flavor makes up for everything. No booziness or alcohol present. This will not get better than it is now. Drink fresh as recommended.
