Pour is jet black with a dark mahogany head. Nose is sweet, lots of vanilla, caramel and some rich chocolate. A touch sugary. Taste is also rich but sugary. Loads of vanilla, sweet malt and sugar, caramel, brown sugar, slightly roasted. Body is heavy and creamy with moderate carbonation.

On tap at the brewery. Served in a snifter.

Appearance - Jet black. Just a little bit of a khaki head.

Smell - Tons of vanilla. A bucket of rum. Some chocolate. Vanilla all over.

Taste - Intense vanilla. Outrageous amount of rum that blends well with the vanilla. Overpowers the stout. Chocolatey but really rummy. Hot rum finish. Earthy bitterness in the back.

Mouthfeel - Extremely boozy. Too much. Chewy.

Overall - I don't remember RareR being this hot. Harsh but the vanilla tastes good.

Edit: Had this a second time and it was better. Changed my numbers.

Black in color. Minimal light brown colored head. Decent retention-about what you'd expect for a BB Imp Stout. Aroma is very sweet, bourbons, with lots of vanilla. Chocolate and cocoa to a lesser extent. Taste is full of roasted malts, cola, molasses, and sweet chocolate with vanilla, of course. Full to heavy bodied. Lighter carbonation. Mild bitterness

500ml growler filled 3/8/13 poured into HF stemmed glass and split three ways. Consumed on 4/19, reviewed from notes. Thanks Louis (polisanl) for hooking me up, didn't think I'd be able to try this treat.

A- Pours a pitch black with a very thin brown mocha head that fizzles away fairly rapidly leaving a still black top. Not sure the abv on this but the beer leaves some nice alcohol legs suggesting that it is 9+%.

S- Nicely balanced integration of coffee, dark chocolate, vanilla, rum, oak, and a bit of booze. Rum dominates a little bit more then on the RareR which leaves a slightly more boziness to the smell, other then that though it has a very nice balance. About average aroma strength, takes a tiny bit of swirling to really get it out.

T- Coffee, dark chocolate, subtle vanilla that integrates well and a decent rum presence that is a little bit stronger then on the RareR and like the aroma leads to it seeming just a little bit more boozey. Finishes with slightly bitter chocolate and a little bit of a rum kick. Nice balance, but not quite as nicely balanced as the last batch of RareR.

M- Silky smooth, very easy to drink, carbonation a little bit on the low side but nice for a barrel-aged stout.

O- This was another great stout from Peg's, not quite as good as the last batch of RareR but the vanilla definitely added a nice variation to it but didn't necessarily make it better. I felt like the Nooner was a bit more Rum heavy which impeded the balance a bit but didn't effect the drinkability as a whole. Overall this beer lived up to my expectations and I wish I had more of it to try.
