This is amazing. No carb issues from an 8 month old growler. Perfect amount of sweetness and thickness. Vanilla, molasses, oak and rum booziness blend together in harmony. Super impressed.

Got this one from 7clutch in a recent box. Cheers for all the love man!

From a 500ml growler into a snifter

APPEARANCE: A clear black pour yields a one finger, medium looking, dark tan head with very good retention. Jet black body with medium carbonation evident for the style. Head slowly fades to a full, slightly bubbly wisp. A half wisp remains until the end and leaves dots of lacing down the glass.

SMELL: Lots of the good stuff here. Bourbon, oak, lots of sweet cream, vanilla, coconut, some lactose sugar and milk chocolate on the nose. Good stuff and very decadent for sure.

TASTE: Oak and vanilla, milk chocolate and bourbon barrel sweetness up front. A bit of roasted malt here as well. Lots of flavor after the swallow again, with bourbon, oak, sweet cream, coconut, vanilla, milk chocolate, some milky sweetness and a touch of roasted malt and alcohol. Great stuff.

PALATE: Medium body and a bit higher levels of carbonation. Very creamy, goes down smooth and finishes a bit sticky. Enough weight and very smooth and creamy. The carbonation settles after a while as well.

OVERALL: Really good stuff. Sweet and flavorful with some nice milky cream flavors and the barrel components tie it all up really nicely. Something I was very happy to try, as all the Cycle stuff has been excellent so far. Thanks again for the brews 7clutch. This was top class.

Reviewed from notes. Had on-tap at Cycle tasting room. Served in a snifter glass.

A: Very dark brown, essentially opaque, with a finger's worth of tan head and no visible carbonation.

S: Big rum aroma up front, then some dry woody barrel character, and sweetness and heat from the booze. Undertones of chocolate malts, vanilla (wood tannins) and some spices (I suspect from the rum).

T: Sweet chocolate, rum (though less than the nose suggested), dark and sweet roasted malts, wood tannins, vanilla and just a bit of lactose creaminess. Sweet sticky malts and residual rum in the hang.

M: Heavy-bodied and a sticky mouthfeel. Restrained alcohol presence for the style, and low carbonation sensation.

O: Another excellent beer from Doug, although I didn't find this to be as good as his barrel treatments of the D.O.S. Still, more than worthwhile to seek out.
