Love this beer.

I specially like that this is more like drinking syrup, rather than having a beer. Pours a really dark beer. Forms a nice head. Smells like coffee, and roasts. Taste is nice and smooth, dark and bitter yet not like a stout. This beer is like a syrup. High alcohol content will knock you out soon. It will also fill you quickly.

22oz bottle into a snifter

A big thanks to allisonmichelle for sending this over via trade! I was at the original release of this beer at a Peg's Barrel Aged Day a few years. Unfortunately I got the regular Rare first (which was exceptional), but when I went back to get a poor or the RareR it was sold out. Ive been waiting to try it ever since. 4.5

A: Pours an absolutely opaque jet black with 1 fingers width of dense appearing mocha colored head. Head dissipates down fairly quickly, and leaves some small patch of lacing. 4.5

S: The nose is fantastic. Lot of sweetness with vinous dark fruits, and some cocoa. I also get roasty characters, and big rum barrel notes along with some booze. 4.5

T: At first I get tons of roasty notes coupled with a big semi-sweet chocolate character. I then get some dark fruit notes and a bit of black coffee bitterness. Fairly big rum notes, as well as a raw oak character and some booze. Rum barrel charaters strengthen throughout the drink. I dont get the big coconut flavors I got in Rare, although I do start to get some subtle toasted coconut towards the end of the first glass. Excellent beer, although I think I prefer the regular Rare DOS (that being said I most definitey prefer bourbon to rum so that makes sense). 4.5

M/D: A little on the thinner side for an elite example of the style, would benefit from being thicker/chewier. ABV is well restrained and drinkability is god. 3.75

O: Excellent beer, but I prefer regular Rare DOS. That being said this is great and definitely worth seeking out. 4.5

Overall: 4.49

The beer pours inky black with a big foamy dark tan head that settles quickly around the perimeter. It has a nose rich in chocolate/caramel malt sweetness which is accentuated by subtle rum barrel spice - there;s nothing in-your-face or unpleasant and the alcohol is under wraps. The taste is equally sweet and big bodied with rounded out rum barrel notes that leave a syrupy spicy/chocolate coating on the palate and does little to produce an ethanol burn or bitterness (though there is some roast). It's an impressive BA stout, one I'd consider very drinkable and carefully balanced, but still difficult to acquire.
