Tasting at Jackie O's. Thanks for the preview brad!

A-dark black body with tan head that stays arouhd

S-amazing bourbon melded well with the body

T-bourbon stands out, not that it is a bad thing. Oatmeal in the beginning. Almost a boozy chocolate candy bar to finish. This is as close to heaven as you can get

M-medium body and smooth

O-wow. What a treat.

Poured from 22oz bottle into The Bruery Tulip.

A: Yeilds a two finger head with aggresive pour, forms a thin off white lacing after it decends, decent carbonation.

S: Bourbon, roasted malts and barley, slight chocolate, hints of maple syrup.

T:Bourbon with slight maple syrup sweetness, slight chocolate with roasted malts and barley, hints of honey.

O: This one is still fresh from the release and could have used a little more time in the cellar ,It's still a little hot but yet so damn tasty..everything seems to meld together and nothing seems out of place..Very well made beer.

22oz bottle poured into a tulip. Bottle #117/298. December 2011 release.

A- Pours a completely motor oil black color with a light brown head that leaves great lacing.

S- The nose is really really nice on this one. Bourbon barrels, vanilla, oak, and dark roasted malt all come through.

T- Sweeter than I would have thought judging by the nose. Nice warming bourbon flavor initially with some vanilla and anise. Roasted malt, smoke, bittersweet chocolate, and alcohol in the finish. A lingering sweetness is present throughout.

M- Full bodied with gentle carbonation.

O- Another very great brew from Jackie O's. Every stout that I've had from them so far has been truly delicious.

Thanks Brad for this sneak peak.

Pours a reddish brown. Nice tan head. Looks very solid. Smells chocolatey and roasted, almost smoky from the barrel. Cots of barrel on the nose. Tastes boozy, hard hitting on the front. A bit harsh but the base beer shines through. Dark chocolate, nice oakiness on the tongue, the bourbon overpowers the nice rich base beer too much. Good mouthfeel but overall a solid brew.

Giant thanks to smokeypeat for this gracious gift! Poured into a Jackie O's snifter at 55 degrees. Split 3 ways.

A. Black body,with brown highlights around the edges. Quarter inch khaki colored head. Just a small bit of spotty lacing.

S. Bourbon is upfront but not overwhelming I get the sweet honey and maple,but it is very faint. Oak and chocolate with a hint of vanilla. Pretty awesome smelling beer.

T. Bourbon hits first it is not overbearing by any means,then comes the woody notes with some leather. In the back you get the sweeter characters vanilla and honey.

M. Pretty good and heavy at first,but I noticed as this warmed it got a bit thin. Nice coating appeal to it. Low carbonation.

Overall an excellent BA stout. I would love to enjoy this again. Again thanks Chris! And I would seek this one out for sure,if you havn't had it.
