Cycle Brewing (Peg’s Cantina) G.O.O.D. Rare Dos
Cycle Brewing Rare Dos is an American Imperial/Double Stout. Counter pressure filled into 500ml mini swing top growlers. I’m not sure how often they brew this, but it is infrequent enough to make this barrel aged stout highly sought after. For good reason too, it’s absolutely amazing. Mostly just whiskey to start but as it warms some more complex flavors come out. Some dark fruit and roast starts to blend in. After a few more minutes some cherry, booze and chocolate along with some more subtle whiskey on the finish. The only negative I have for this is the fact that the mouth-feel is a bit thin for my tastes, a minor flaw. This cost me a pretty penny ($20 a bottle!), but it really was worth it. I got to share a growler of this with wife on our anniversary, and the other with Raymond and Lee. I think that probably made it taste even better!
