Poured from a 16 oz. growler into a snifter. Batch 100 pours a medium caramel brown color with just a tiny wisp of a tan head. The carbonation is visibly on the light side. The bourbon comes through first but integrated well with the base beer. Figs, molasses, and a nice nutty presence are all noticeable in the nose. Each sip starts fairly sweet, with a variety of caramel, toffee, molasses, and malt flavors coming through. The flavor is smooth throughout, slowly dries out as the bourbon and oak take effect, and finishes with a mellow vanilla back. The sweetness may become cloying after a number of pours, but for the amount that I had, it was quite elegant. There is a sweet, syrupy front, which gives the impression of a full, thick body. It lightens up a little bit as the sip progresses. The carbonation is creamy and has a bit more presence that I would have guessed looking at the pour, but it is still on the light side. Each barrel aged beer I have had from Peg’s has been solid so far; I look forward to trying more of their beers in the future.

Mini growler courtesy of a great trader. Pours dark ruby, black with minimal head. Very sweet, full of caramel, brown sugar, burnt malt, and booze. Finishes sticky with some resinous hops. A tad cloying and overwhelming

Thanks to Blake for the chance to try this rarity. Pours out a clear dark brown with a touch of foam. Nose is rich and vibrant caramel, sweet bready malts, subtle vanilla. Not an overwhelming or super strong aroma, but thoroughly pleasant. Taste follows suit - an impeccable, highly drinkable, sweet malty beer with just the right amount of barrel characteristic. Feel was lovely, medium bodied, fairly creamy. Could have used a touch more carb, but that’s probably because it had been in a small growler for some time. Overall, a delicous beer. Incredibly smooth and drinkable.

Big thanks to newcigarz for providing this growler for my 1000th rating. I missed the release, but was very glad to get to try this ale. Clear brown pour. Whiskey and caramel malt aromas. Smooth and delicious with decadent caramel, chocolate, oak, vanilla, and booze notes. Superbly balanced, good body. What a another fantastic beer from the guys in Gulfport......

Very ecstatic to try this one. Peg’s is doing some fantastic things. Pours a dark amber-brown with a thin off-white head that falls down to a collar. A spot or two of lacing. The nose carries a really nice bit of bourbon, oak, and slight vanilla plus some sweet bread and caramel. Some dark fruits in the background. To me, very reminiscent of Kuhnhenn BB4D, which is high praise. Flavor continues with the bourbon melding beautifully with the base beer. Really sweet and boozy and delicious. Body is incredible. Just so smooth. Overall, just a fantastic beer that I would love to have again. Not a surprise after how good Rare DOS was.

Medium brown. Strong whiskey aroma with caramelly malts, light alcohol and a slight tobacco note. Very soft body, with a sweet, woody character. Quite balanced.

Batch 100. On tap at pegs for their ba festival... Pours a mildly transparent choclate amber hued consistency and had non-existent head at this point... Aroma is solid with bourbon heated whiskey notes. Toasted caramel, light coconut, and booze. Slight dark fruit impartation with a tinge of fudge... Flavors are more of the same. Toasted malt, caramel toffee and hints of cocoa. Medium to slightly syrupy body with lighter level of carbonation. 7/3/6/3/13

hopscotch (9059) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAR 15, 2012
Draft… This beer rocks!…Dark brown ale with a small, creamy, khaki head. Excellent retention. The bouquet furnishes a malty blend of singed caramel, coconut, sourmash whiskey, charred oak and vanilla. Full-bodied with a silky mouthfeel and laid-back / Key West carbonation. The flavor presents caramelized sugar, sourmash whiskey, vanilla, brown sugar, deeply-roasted espresso bitterness and a touch of warming ethanol. Finishes caramely, acrid and bourbony without overbearing alcohol heat. Another world class effort by Doug!

Nice brown pour, off white head. Sweet and whiskey aromas dominate. Yes the Palm Ridge Barrels are awesome! This beer tastes a crap ton like FW 14th anniversary...and thats a great thing!
