32 ounce growler filled earlier today at Blacklick Wine and Spirits. Served in a snifter, the beer pours dark brown/black with an inch tan head that stayed around a while. There's also a good amount of lacing. Aroma is nice, the brew smells like roasted malt, bittersweet and milk chocolate, nuts/walnuts, and some dark fruit. The taste is similar to the aroma, but with the addition of some burnt/charred malt and a bit of coffee. Mouthfeel/body is medium/full, it's slick and syrupy with moderate carbonation. I think this is a pretty good stout, next time I'll have to get a 64 ounce growler instead! Definitely worth trying if you come across it somewhere.

Serving type: growler

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

Bottle 57 or 378 (2011 version)

Appearance: Pours pitch black with a very modest head; a quick fader that leaves mini dots around the side of the glass

Smell: Tart cherry tones waft above the chocolate and roast; nutty elements, too

Taste: The tart flavors arrive early, masking the underlying roast, chocolate and walnuts; not much flavor development, as a result

Mouthfeel: Full bodied with moderate carbonation

Overall: When you have a big sour program like Jackie O's, I am not surprised that it is hard to contain the wild yeast strains; the sourness of this beer is interesting, but not great, and certainly not what the brewer intended

2011 bottle (158 of 240) poured into a Brooklyn snifter.

A - Pours thick into the glass with a near black color and a short finger of dark chocolate brown foam that fizzes away quickly leaving only a faint collar of bubbles around the edge of the glass.

S - A bit of tartness up front (after a couple years in the cellar - infection?...we will see), fudge, dark chocolate, definite walnutty nuttiness, mild hop bitterness, cherries stand out a bit with some other dark fruits mixed in, touch of booze.

T - Burnt, charred malt up front, a bit smokey. Bakers chocolate, walnuts, just a hint of tartness (maybe start of an infection), cherry, roasty, hints of coffee, mid-low level hoppy bitterness, slight alcohol presence.

M - Pretty full bodied and dense. A bit syrupy in thickness, although a little bit slick and not sticky. Carbonation is low-medium and creamy...enhances the heaviness already in the body. Tartness comes on a bit more as the beer warms...gives a solid sour cherry character. Alcohol is pretty well hidden.

O - Gives the impression of the very start of an infection taking hold to the point where it becomes noticeable in the flavor and aroma profile. Glad I had this now instead of waiting a bit longer. Still quite drinkable with lots of good qualities to it. Lot of smokey and charred character, chocolate and walnut flavors. Infection is adding some cherry and tart flavors that are a mix of enhancement and detraction.
