Pours a dark brown with no real carbonation. No head. Looks a bit disappointing. Smells great though! Chocolatey and malty. A bit tart but not sour. A nice bit of barrel on the nose and tongue. A bit bitter but enjoyable. Low carbonation level. Overall pretty solid but not my favourite cuvee

Presentation: Had on tap recently at the brew pub. Described as a honey wheat wine and imperial stout aged in Cabernet barrels. Arrives in a snifter.

Appearance: Thin cap of light tan head. The beer itself is medium-dark brown with hints of red.

Smell: Sour with hints of strawberries.

Taste: Semi-sweet cherry upfront with hints of vanilla and oak. Sour in the finish.

Mouthfeel: Average carbonation level. Body is very good.

Drinkability: Full and flavorful; I could have many of these.

I had this on-tap at Jackie O's during the release this weekend. Served in a sample glass.

Appearance: Pours a dark mahogany color with no real head to speak of.

Smell: Sweet and loaded with dark fruit, maple syrup notes, and malt. Perhaps a bit creamy as well.

Taste: A lot like the smell. Very sweet, malty and a bit creamy. I'm picking up some maple and mild vanilla. The finish is warm and sweet.

Mouthfeel: The body is thick with mild carbonation and a slightly slick finish.

Overall: This is a really sweet beer but I enjoyed the amount I had. Much more would have been too much.

4 oz. sampler at JO's 6th Anniversary. I made damn good review notes, but then I lost them. Bear with me on this.

3.5 A: Lightly hazed dark brown color. Came without a head.

4.0 S: Interestingly this still has a fairly big bourbon component. Leathery, oaky woodiness, and earthy. The Dark App dominates the nose, offering a soft roastiness, milk chocolate, and hints of coffeee. The wheatwine adds a neutral wheaty sweetness.

4.0 T: Even more interesting, the wheatwine takes control in the taste. Lots of wheat flavor with peppery spiciness, and boatloads of light fruits. The Dark App offers the same flavors as in the nose, but just less of them. The bourbon component is much subdued, but still adds an earthiness to the complexity.

4.0 M: Medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Super smooth and reasonably creamy.

4.0 D: A very interesting blend. I'd say there's not way it was a 50/50 blend though. The color is too light for that, especially given that the wheatwine is dark amber to start. Anyway, I really liked how the stout dominated the nose, while the wheatwine controlled the taste.

Made the trek up to Jackie O's from WV with trep and his gf. Well worth the visit, if only for this phenomenal beer. Described as a "wheat-wine style ale brewed with honey, blended with a Russian Imperial Stout, and aged on oak barrels."

Whoozzahjiggawhaaa?

Pours a dark, murky, burnt sepia hue with a thin cap of beige head. The fairly hazy body lets in hints of mahogany in the light. Excellent aroma, laced with clover honey, raisin rum, toasted chocolate malts, diabetes-inducing toffee, and a hint of vanilla from the barrel-aging.

The flavor...well, the flavor is an absolute slam dunk. Caramel-drizzled oats and chocolate truffle coat the palate alongside a spicy kick of black pepper and musty hops. The finish is reserved for honey & booze, with a delicious clover sweetness that blends perfectly with raisin rum and a kiss of ethanol. Sticky, chewy mouthfeel, with a heftily carbonated body that sits on the verge of heaviness, but still remains drinkable. Alcohol is well-hidden, but I can feel the stomach warming after half a glass. Overall, an amazing brew from an amazing brewpub. The masses need to wake up and recognize the talent that brews at Jackie O's...
