look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 1.25 | feel: 1.5 | overall: 1.75

22oz bottle into snifter. Bottled in 2011, batch 335/336. Thanks to HosP for sending me this one years ago.

A: Pours near black with a finger of dense light brown head that slowly faded into a thick collar.
S: Scents of maple and honey are sweet but not cloying and easily stand out above scents of rich caramel, chocolate syrup, sherry, and musty oak.
T: The sherry flavor from the nose dominates the taste, and is in fact a tart sour cherry infection. Tart cherries hit up front followed by musty earth, sweet molasses and caramel, and a kiss of chocolate. The finish is lightly sour, and a sweet honey/molasses/caramel sweetness lingers.
M: The carbonation screams infection as well. It’s prickly and tingly and really froths up on my palate. Medium body, slick and frothy mouthfeel.
O: Had I drank this fresh the infection might have been unnoticeable, but alas I forgot about it in my cellar for too long. The drain got 95% of this bottle.

Bottle # 247 of 334

A: Pours a deep brown color. A thin creamy khaki colored head forms slowly, but dissipates quickly, aside from a thin edge around the glass.

S: Big notes of vanilla and maple up front. Starts very inviting, but has a strange, almost tart, apple-like hint at the back end.

T: Wow. Tartness explodes on the pallet immediately. Tastes like the most tart green apple you can find. Picks up a nice barrel characteristic when it warms, and you get past the sharpness. Caramel and vanilla notes calm the tartness. Slight roast, but a metallic tang in the aftertaste.

M: Creamy and full bodied, with very light carbonation. Feels overly acidic and harsh on the pallet. No alcohol present, but that's the least of the worries here.

O: I gotta imagine there's an infection issue here. What's inviting in the nose is completely overshadowed by the acidic tart tang in the taste and feel. i haven't been a huge fan of the other Jackie O's beers I've tried, and this one continues the disappointing trend for me.

This must be infected?

Description on the bottle is a blend of two beers, an amber ale aged in brandy barrels and an oatmeal stout in bourbon barrels. Sounds like something out of the Firestone Walker book...some hops, mellowed by aging, combined with a nice BBA stout! Awesome.

Not so much with this one.

Appearance is like a stout, not bad.

Smell is where it gets no so great. Smells sour. ZERO barrel. Some slight roastiness, but some definite funk.

Taste is slightly better than the smell. It's like a mediocre farmhouse style stout. I'd never guess this was two barrel aged beers, but it's not altogether unpleasent.

Moutfeel is light and overly carbonated for the style.

This is not something I'd ever spend money on. By description on the bottle, I expect a rich, succulent beer. This didn't deliver, although it's certainly drinkable.

In fairness, this bottle may be infected. But, considering it's not awful, I'm not sure...who knows.

Cheers!
