4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Growler thanks to 50belair!! Pours opaque black with a medium creamy dark brown head that dissipates leaving great lacing. Aroma is rum, dark roast, molasses, figs, vanilla. Flavor is the same, light plus sweet, light bitter, a touch of astringence and a bit of coffee. Finish is warming and rummy. Full body, creamy mouthfeel. Pretty nice beer.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pitch black body, thin khaki head, minimal lacing. Rich chocolate, light roast, some wood, and rum-fruitiness throughout. Full bodied, coats the tongue, gentle carbonation, a bit of heat, rich. Nice, but nothing like the RareDOS from a few years back.

Not my favorite. Preferred Rare to this. Not sure I like the rum barrel aging. Love whiskey/bourbon barrel stuff, but this is my first rum barrel aged beer. Worth a try

UPDATED: JUL 27, 2013 Draft at Peg’s. Dark opaque brown with bourbon notes in the nose. Nice smooth, full palate and probably one of the best Barrell Aged beers I’ve had. Not too much of a harsh liquor kick make this VERY enjoyable.

Kvällens tyngsta raritet. Motorolja i upphällningen. Doftar dill, kräftor, champinjoner och bourbon (?). Oerhört krämig. Helt underbar och krämig. Världsklass. Choklad och vanilj. Njutning.

thanx to bobochamlps ! label reads ’ rareR D.O.S. , cycle brewing, .. no sign of the ’peg’s good’ / ’peg’s cantina’ yet i asume this is the same ( the onley outcome by a search on rarer dos, plus i saw it on pictures, and bobochamp rated this here , also.
so yeah, weird, but OK.. moving on !
pours black, no foam . very small ring of brown bubbles on the side of the glass. onley visible when i wear my glasses
smell is not thazt intense, its describe it as a sweeter-coffe scent.
bitter, turning into liquorish , sweet, a bit boowy ( not TOO much) but damn, thats wattery! i thought this wxould be a nice , thick stout ... also not that complex. the rum is pretty recogniwable, but not to straight forward..
overall i’m a bit dissapointed this is as thin as it is. and not that complex// heavy. this could either be a very light beer ( according to the mouthfeel) like 8 abv or something, or a real heavy one ( acoording to the boozyness) like 15 abv... weird...
a bit dissapointing, indeed

Draught@Mikkeller Bar, Copenhagen. Black colour, not much head. Aroma is sweet alcohol, malts, liquorice, ripe fruits and some mild rum notes. Flavour is rum, sweet liquorice, some sweet malts with mild toasted and toffeeish notes. Not as good as Rare DOS, as the alcohol and sweetness are a bit more offensive here.
