L - Pours a decent black thickness with a dark tan one finger head. Okay lacing and okay retention.

S - Great roasted malt character, black walnuts are definitely in full effect and the sweet candied syrup rears its head.

T - Black walnuts combined with vanilla that transform into huge roasted malts. The Belgian candied syrup is on the money and definitely holds the beer together. There is a char character as well.

F - Full bodied and medium carbonation. A bit sugary and sweet, but not cloying sweet. Smooth and velvety body.

O - A rich stout that is to be appreciated.

Doesn't get much better than this for an American Double Stout.

375 enjoyed in a jackie o mini snifter...once again, thrashd...thank you!

a - brew pours watery black, not too sludgy...no head to speak of. minimal lace.

s - nose is a nice chocolate stout with notes of vanilla and nuttiness. good roast character...very nice blend.

t/m/o - zing. super smooth and tasty stout. walnuts show themselves in a vanilla nutty vibe glazed over a deep chocolate rich stout with light to moderate roastiness. so much yum in these little bottles. have had this one in the past and really don't remember digging it as much as now...in fact, have had a bunch of jackie o recently and very impressed vs my initial impressions after they first came on the scene. goes to show...it is always worth it to check in again down the road after a lack-luster first impression.

This beer pours beautifully. Thick and lasting dark tan head that really lingers and laces my glass nicely. Flavor profile is outstanding. I do get some walnut character here, mostly on the backend and as an accent. Also, I get what seems like a mild molasses. Dark chocolate seems to be hinting, but also lingering as a faint accent, like the walnuts. There is a mature degree of sweetness here that is at the perfect level and I assume it comes from the Belgian candied syrup, as noted on the label. Overall, it's just heaps of rich malts piled on top of each other.
