This was one of the guest options at the recent de Garde event. Really liked this one. Lots of chocolate, vanilla and light coffee, but with that interesting nutty, pecan-like flavor I seem to pick up in a lot of the Jackie O stouts and porters. Very smooth, long and full bodied on the palate, with alcohol very well integrated into the flavor proflle. Excellent stuff!

Serving type: 12 ounce bottle poured into an Anderson Valley Bourbon Barrel Stout snifter.

Appearance: Pitch black, nice cream tan head with lots of tiny bubbles, looks great in a glass. Nice lacing on the glass.

Aroma: I was drinking another Jackie O stout earlier and I got this strange chemical like aroma, sam e here, there's a strange chemical aroma but it leads into a beautiful chocolate roasted malt aroma.

Taste: Big roasted malts, chocolate, dark roasted nut, dry, I got some bitterness on the front end, not getting any alcohol burn for a 10% beer, great flavor.

Mouthfeel: Medium mouthfeel, nice carbonation, dry finish, a little alcohol burn, not much, but a nice medium mouthfeel.

Overall: Stout with walnuts, turned me off at first but this is a really good double stout. Really nice, a must try for stout lovers, I am not sure what it is but there is some strange chemical like aroma on the beer's front but I don't anything like that on the taste. I got this in a trade and I don't know how old the beer is, but this is really good, nice big chocolate roasted malt flavors and I don't get walnut flavors. In Ohio, stop by Jackie O's and ask for this!
