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.

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.

500ml growler into a snifter.

A. Dark brown with red hues. Tan head.

S. Rich chocolate cake, cinnamon spiciness from the rum, thick toffee and strong vanilla. Awesome aroma.

T. The vanilla is more restrained in the taste. Rum barrel is prominent, giving the beer a slightly bitter leafy taste, some light spiciness, dark chocolate, vanilla, musky wood.

M. Between medium and thick-bodied with light carbonation.

O. Although the smell is up there with the best vanilla stouts (BVDL, Chocolate Rain, etc....), the rum barrel gives a bit too much bitterness in the taste, which wasn't quite the case with regular RareR. Still, a really nice beer.
