thanks to Paul

pours black, bit of a thick body but not sticky or cloying. little to no head, lacing, retention.

light rum and booze on the nose, light chocolate and fudge. lots of roasted malt.

taste was a bit of the weakness IMO. there was some light cherry and rum up front with a faint chocolate body. the finish was heavy roasted malt. sounds great and all but i found most of the flavors muted and not really sticking out.

mild carbonation, a bit light body.

this did not wow me at all, it was good but no where near the trouble to get.

Huge thanks to LiquidDegenerate for this lovely beer! Bottled 12/21/12:

Pours more or less like a glass of dark roast - a thin layer of caramel brown head dissipates quickly leaving behind a thin collar that laces a bit with plenty of oily booze remnants. Pretty good amount of cloudy beading beneath the head. I'm surprised and delighted by the amount of carbonation that remains.

Caramel covered, rum-soaked fruits explode from the bottle. Sweet oak melded with vanilla or even hazelnut. I'm glad to see that the sweetness is pretty dialed back, leaving room for a mellowed out rum, cocoa and dried fruit profile. Really nice in the nostrils if I do say so myself.

Oh god damn... what a big old beautiful beer. Bittersweet chocolate and overripe red fruits, toffee and caramel, a nice twang from the rum contribution plays well against the earthiness of the oak. A hint of coffee grounds, maybe some molasses - pretty complex I think, evolving with every bit of warmth. Some boozy plum shows itself later on in the glass... finishes a bit sweeter than I anticipated but it works. Not too sticky and not too dry, great sense of balance in that regard.

I would love to try this one on tap. There's hardly any room for improvement but I think a fresh sample would really put this stuff over the edge. Fantastic.

Very grateful to have had the chance to try this gem. Thanks Jim!

Poured from the growler into a tasting snifter.

The beer pours almost black in color with a quarter inch of good looking tan head. The head leaves a ring around the pour. It smells a bit hot. I'm getting some vanilla notes along with rum and dark fruit. The taste is very sweet with a nice rum note right away. Lots of roasted malt to back up the sweetness that is accentuated by the rum barrel. I'm also getting some dark chocolate and oak in the flavor. The finish is a bit warm but not abrasive in any way. The beer is very thick and covers your mouth. The carbonation is creamy and smooth. Overall I really enjoyed this one. It's a good use of rum barrel aging and I'd be happy to have more.

Thanks to Wowcoolman for sharing this one at drewone's place.

Released 12/21/12.

Pours an opaque black with a foamy dark khaki head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Tiny dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is of dark roasted malt, cocoa, cookie dough, vanilla, wood, and rum. Taste is much the same with a slightly tart vanilla rum finish. There is a mild amount of roasty bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a very good beer with an awesome smell and a great set of flavors.

Reviewing the highly coveted Peg's G.O.O.D. RareR D.O.S. from Peg's Cantina & Brewpub out of Gulfport, Florida. This beer is their Doug’s Original Stout (the "D.O.S." part of the name) aged in Rum barrels (presumably the capital R part of the "RareR").

Score: 97

2012 vintage 500 ml growler from the 12/21/2012 release. Served in a Tyranena snifter glass and enjoyed on 01/17/13.

Appearance: Ink black in color. Pours a thin layer of mocha-colored head that settles to a ring around the glass. Poor, splotchy lacing that is primarily oily, but average retention. What little lacing and oil clings slowly oozes down the side, back into the glass. 4/5

Smell: Vanilla, fudge and milk chocolate. Behind that is a sweet rum backbone that gets a little more prominent towards the tail end of a whiff. Oak too. Some roastiness and a little dark fruit. Hint of cherry. 4.75/5

Taste: The sweet rum is a lot more "forward" on the palate than in the nose, but it is deliciously incorporated. The first flavor to hit you is the rum, followed shortly thereafter by a wave of vanilla and fudge. This is then followed by a wave of dark fruit, brown sugar and faint milk chocolate. Finishes with lingering vanilla and fudge. There is some bold "boozy flavor," but no "booziness." Slightly sweet overall. 4.75/5

Mouthfeel: Not quite full-bodied, low carbonation. Rich and creamy on the palate. Finishes dry, but not quite "chalky." 4.5/5

Overall: This is a baby Churchill's Finest Hour 2012 with sweet rum and cherry characteristics. Holy wow! I love how rich and complex this brew is.

Recommendation: Seek a bottle of this out!

Pairings: French vanilla ice cream.

Cost: $20 for a 500 ml growler.

Thanks to Dan for this. 500ml swing top out of my CBS snifter.

A- Pours a very deep black, and has a fairly thick appearance. A healthy mocha color head appears, and reduces to a light ring of foam around the ring of the glass. A little swirl leaves a nice spotty lacing around the glass.

S- A ton of roasted malt and dark fruits. A bit of boozy oakiness, but somewhat hard to distinguish the exact alcohol type from the nose alone.

T- Very smooth and creamy, transitions to lots of dark fruity notes and rum. It is rich and a bit sweet, but almost has a tartness about it(perhaps from the rum). The flavors work together extremely well though, and the base beer is big enough to stand up to the strength of the barrel.

M- Very nice. Thick and heavy, without being overboard. The carbonation was spot on too, especially from a swing top that is a few weeks old now.

O- I was very excited to try this beer, and I have to say it met my expectations. I'd be curious to try the bourbon, as I think it would be more up my alley. The rum comes of a bit harsh at times, but is still very delicious. This beer has depth, and I'd gladly drink more of these. Could only imagine it is even better on tap.
