Thanks Dan, awesome share. 10 oz. from a growler into a snifter on March 8th, 2013.

A - Not hugely black but definitely a thick, deep rosewood. Very soft whips of carbonation atop, but no true head. No lacing but leaves a tan residual film. Plentiful alcohol legs.

S - Rum spirit, freshly charred oak, sherry, honey cake, raisiny biscuit, and light cocoa. No alcohol whatsoever.

T - Front palate immediately shows the rum character, which blends well into roasted almond, huge alcohol-soaked fig, stone fruits, and plentiful oak tannic bitterness.

M - Lighter body than it looks, very low but appropriate carbonation, very dry finish. Slight ethanol warming.

D - I suspect I'd prefer the bourbon version, but this is easily the finest rum treatment I've come across and the flavors are executed with obvious purpose.

On-tap at Peg's on 3/8/13.

A- Pours black with a thin khaki head. Looks super thick and viscous.

S- Loads of dark chocolate, chocolate cake, vanilla, and coconut. The barrel character is mild but lends some nice rum notes as well as mild sweetness and oak.

T- Again, massive dark chocolate flavor, vanilla, coconut, along with some rum and oak. It's very rich and very complex. The barrel flavors are understated and work very well with the base beer, although I think I slightly prefer the bourbon barrel treatment.

M- Full-bodied, low carbonation, thick, viscous, sticky, just a bit of alcohol warmth.

O- Another incredible stout from Peg's, I preferred Rare over this, but this was still a wonderful brew, this whole series of stouts is really amazing.

Shared at my Birthday whale tasting. I shared this, and big thanks to mposha (Reddit) for this gem.

Pours with no head, as expected, super pitch black beer, with thick syrupy legs!

Nose is awesome! oh my! Great chocolate, big malts, syrupy, thick rich cocoa, little roast and coffee, aged malts as well, dark chocolate, just a touch of dark fruit even.

Taste is delicious! Lush thick and rich, tons of chocolate, velvety, dark malting chocolate, chewy oats, hint of sweet sugary fruitiness too which I assume is from the rum barrel with a touch of vanilla oak too, light bitterness, melting rich chocolate, so thick, lush, tasty, just awww yeah.... Long lush finish, hint of bitterness, hint vanilla oak barrel, velvety lush mouth coating.

Mouth is full rich thick bodied, velvety, lighter but decent carb.

Overall holy shit, this def earned it's reputation, very good beer, very good!

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.
