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!

375ml bottle purchased from local Heinen's for $5.99/bottle. No bottle dating but latest release.

Dark black to opaque elixir poured into Hoppin' Frog snifter. Thick, mocha, two finger head, thick lacing.

Complex aroma built around roasted malts, caramel, nut, spice and mild char. Hints of coffee and chocolate.

Initial bitterness smoothed by a velvet toasty chocolate, some char on the back end. The nutty, caramel flavors are muted by the heat.

Medium to heavy mouthfeel, a bit oily but overall fairly smooth.

Very nicely balanced between the malt and hops but the alcohol is a bit too in front and masks the flavors so prevalent in the aroma. I have a bottle in the cellar and look forward to revisiting this brew in a year.
