Bottle number 16/72--bottled on 11.16.09, and sampled roughly two years later. Picked this bottle up at the brewery at my first bottle sale at Jackie-O's (maybe Jackie-O's first bottle sale ever?)

Pours with very little carbonation, a brown-reddish color.

Hints of plum, cherry, vanilla, wet wood, red grapes, and a hint of bitterness in the nose with this one.

After two years, this beer seems to have aged well. Notes of sour grapes, vanilla, oak, and tart cherry in this beer. It is very tart, and lingering on the sour edge.

Overall, the color and consistency of the brew works for the style. It is flavorful, and has that wonderful, creative hint of Jackie-O's innovation to it--slightly sour, full of flavor. Tasting this two years after the bottling date left the beer a bit flat, but not lacking in its original mission--tasting great.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Dark brown color, slightly lighter edges, light brown head, small lace.

Plentiful bourbon barrel notes, peat, wood, dark fruits, and a cherry liked note in the back.

Taste was a little lighter on the bourbon barrel, nice woody peat note, dark fruits, spiciness. Cherry notes weren't there in the taste and especially once it warmed.

Full bodied mostly, good carb, pleasant slickness.

3.71/5  rDev -3.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

650 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Bottle #5 of 300.

Appearance - Deep brown. Small brown head. Nothing exciting. Nothing bad.

Smell - Fruity and a touch of acidity. Always acidity with Jackie O's. Slight aroma of smoke. Just a touch of Bourbon.

Taste - Much fruitier. Acidic from the fruits. I guess it's plums. More smoked malt than the nose. Bourbon also more prominent. Fruitiness lingers throughout.

Mouthfeel - I'm always afraid these will turn sour. It doesn't. Nice slick body with medium low carbonation

Overall - Had this after Alesmith BA Wee Heavy so it fell short, but the fruits added a nice, although distressing, dimension.

The beer was served chilled in a snifter.

A- The body of the beer is dark brown coloration with ruby highlights. The head was a thick nugget coloration and had serious staying power.

S- The aroma of the beer was bourbon, combined with smokey peat, vanilla, oak, cocoa and a bit of earthyness.

T- The beer is loaded with bourbon flavor. Vanilla and caramel sweetness meet slightly smokey peat light cocoa and leathery flavors.

M- The body of the beer is just shy of full. The carbonation is moderate and works well. This is a very smooth and easy to drink beer. No alcohol in the mouth but plenty of alcohol warmth.

O- Dam tasty beer! Drank several of these at the release and would have been thrilled to have some more.
