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

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
1L growler, sent from mwgroove23 (thank Mike), pours jet black with with a small tan head. Aroma is very intense, with notes of rum, wood, heavy roasted malt and caramel. Flavour is uber-rich, with loads of rich roasted malt, perfectly positioned rum notes, wood and a bit of vanilla. Extremely potent, with notes of rum and vanilla at the forefront, leaving a woody finish. Very viscous and slightly syrupy, but in no way cloying. Extremely complex and highly drinkable for a big barrel-aged impie. Awesome stuff.
