Thanks to rudzud for sharing. Batch '12 bottle 48/312

Pours almost no head, faint dark bubbles, super dark brown pretty much black colored beer, no real light coming through.

Nose is a mix of sourness, brown malts, fruit, and barrel. Starting with creamy brown malts, caramel light brown sugar, toasty brown malts, faint cocoa, into barrel, vanilla, oak barrel, toasted oak and almost candy vanilla, touch of red wine, and then into sour cherry, tart balotin like cherry with hint of cough syrup and candy cherry. The more I smell the cocoa comes out a bit more, like choc covered tart cherries, light creaminess and hint of lactobaccillus funk.

Taste is just as complex. Malts first, light toasty brown malts caramel brown sugar etc. Then a nice cocoa flavor, dusty cocoa powder and hint of melted bakers choc, into barrel with lots of vanilla and toasted barrel, faint dusty shelf. Then cherry, tart sour cherry, candy cherry with hint of cherry cough syrup, syrupy too, as well as creamy and funky lactobaccillus. Finish is sour tart cherries at first, then nice creamy chocolate porter and light vanilla oak barrel, with a sticky syrupy light flemmy lacto funk lingering, and later some nice earthy bitterness, and a bit more cocoa.

Mouth is med to fuller bodied, creamy, but little carb.

Overall quite nice, starts with sour tart cherry, moves to nice chocolate porter, and rounds with a vanilla oak barrel. Nice beer overall, good cherry and chocolate, nice barrel, tasty. Only complaint is lower carbonation.

Thanks to miketd for the hookup, shared with JLindros and poured into a Kate the Great tulip. Bottle number 48/312

A - Poured a deep dark almost black pour with big brown bubbles that move to form a thick bubbly halo.

S - Aromas of nice Cabernet barrels and sour candied cherries lightly funky brett and sour lactose. Nice faint chocolate notes on the end, most are overwhelmed by the sour cherries.

T - Taste is creamy milky sour lactose. Good candied sour cherries, lots of red wine here, quite vinuos here with good oaken barrel notes. Slight chocolate roasted malts on the finish with a light bitterness. Starts like a cherry wild and ends like good porter. Nice transition.

M - Mouthfeel is lightly carbonated and smooth and creamy. Goes down easy.

O - Overall this was a solid Jackie O's beer but mot my favourite offering. Like how the cherries mingle with the porter. Good brew but not sure if id go for it again.
