Tried among a line up of Cycles, including Nooner 10, &+, Pallet 1 and Pallet 2. Overall, Cycle hype is largely deserved.

Hey guys, this is a good beer. Nice interplay of barrel, cinnamon and chilies. If you've had Huna, you know the drill. The only ding is a little excess heat that seems to be a byproduct of cinnamon, chilies and alcohol. 3rd favorite.

On tap at Peg's. Served in a snifter.

Appearance - Black with a big khaki head. Great retention. Thick collar.

Smell - Peppers and rum. A little spicy. Chocolate.

Taste - Chocolate and cola. Strong spiciness, not only from peppers but also from cinnamon. Rum finish.

Mouthfeel - Heavy spicy and boozy. Medium carbonation. Drinks well though.

Overall - Very enjoyable. Intense, but good.

had this on draft Dec/2014. Full 12oz snifter -poured pitch black with a quarter inch khaki/brown head. Aroma of rum barrel sweetness mixed with cinnamon. Taste was right there with it. Just enough barrel to keep the cinnamon in check. Thick luscious mouth-feel that cycle has perfected. Overall it was excellent. My top beer of 2014.

had this one in Dec '14 when they sent off Rarer DOS. One of the best beers I've ever had. Super thick like most of Cycle's stouts. The smell had it all, rum, chocolate, vanilla, coffee - the kitchen sink. the taste followed and slowly changed and developed as it warmed. I've had many from Cycle and other breweries since and it's still my favorite.

Choosing not to bottle this for Nooner 8 instead of RareR w/Hazelnuts must have been like choosing which child is your favorite. If this beer never sees a future beyond what's left in the kegs at the brewery then beer drinkers everywhere will have lost a true gem.

Edit: 3/12/15 -- Released in bottles today as Cycle's "Thursday" beer. Still tastes as awesome as it did in December.
