Huge thanks to newk340 for busting this out last night to follow up the Utopias, thanks Nick! Although I live in Minnesota and have even traded growlers for Czar Jack, I've never had it before, so I was pretty excited to try it. Split 5 ways and poured into snifters:
A - Pours dark black with thick, frothy mocha head that is about 1.5 inches thick. Lacing is pretty heavy and sticks on the sides of the glass for a while.
S - Vanilla, sweet candy, little bit of chocolate, wood and light bourbon. Some roast along with a little bit of lactose. Kind of like milk chocolate. Hints of heat and booze.
T - Touch of booze and heat. Toffee, dark plums and raisins. Roast, vanilla, earth and a bit of butterscotch.
M - Good carbonation. Thick and bit of a tingle from the heat. Pretty smooth and creamy.
O - I was really happy with this one. I've had the Ol' Jack Frost before, which I thought was pretty good, and it definitely showed as the base beer, but I've never had anything aged in Jack Daniels barrels before, which I was also able to pick up in the smell, taste and mouthfeel. Really glad I got to try this one. It might be a tad bit better in a year when it has time to cool down from the heat, but overall, a solid offering from the Town Hall.
Serving type: growler
