22oz bottle into snifter. Thanks again, Josh!

A: Pours a deep brown with a thin light tan head that quickly faded into a faint bubbly collar. Minimal spotty lace was left down the glass.
S: Sweeter than expected. I get notes of boozy whiskey, faint cherry, mild chocolate, woody oak and mild leather.
T: Not as much whiskey as I would have hoped or expected. Sherry and caramel dominate alongside flavors of milk chocolate, caramel, and warming booze. The aftertaste is full of raisin and chocolate. There is a mild lingering of whiskey, but it doesn't scream Pappy.
M: Full body, smooth mouthfeel but sharp carbonation. Decent.
O: I was definitely let down by this one. I hoped more of the barrel had come through. Good but not great.

Another Jackie O's brew from hotpipes. Cheers!

From a bomber into a snifter
Bottle 177 of 300

APPEARANCE: Pours a one finger, medium looking, fizzy, tan head with half decent retention. Head quickly recedes to a ring only. Clear bistre brown body with no carbonation evident. A slight ring remains until the end but leaves no real lacing down the glass.

SMELL: Oak, bourbon, alcohol and spicy aromas on the nose. Dark fruits, grapes, dates and raisins as well. Notes of brown sugar and dark caramel as well. Bold nose with plenty of complexity from the barrel and base beer.

TASTE: Caramel and brown sugar up front with lots of barrel and spicy alcohol at the swallow. Bourbon, oak, light vanilla and strong caramel sweetness, brown sugar and dark fruits linger on the palate. Boozy and spicy alcohol with plenty of malt sweetness. Quite flavorful but slightly too boozy perhaps.

PALATE: Medium body and medium levels of carbonation. Enough weight on the palate, creamy enough as well, though a touch harsh going down and finishes rather sticky. Heat lingers. Big burn, lots of heat and a touch prickly perhaps. A little rough going.

OVERALL: This is okay and relatively complex and interesting, but the harsh and hot feel detract from the experience. This is very boozy. I can definitely see some potential here, and perhaps leaving it alone for a couple years will give it time to mellow out a little, but as it stands now, this is too rough to really be as enjoyable as it wants to be. If you have one, hang onto it until the calendar reads 2015 at least. Thanks again hotpipes. Always good times.

22 oz bottle, thanks Thorpe.

Pours a dark ruby brown with a thin tan head. Loads of barrel on the nose; rich blend of vanilla, coconut, bourbon, and plum. Much more interesting flavor than the Bourbon Skipping Stone with a more complex barrel and dark fruit presence. The base quad is strong enough to keep this from turning into (delicious) watered down bourbon, but the star is still Pappy with traces of cherry, plum and candi sugar. Great beer Brad.

Bottle generously shared by Chris (spycow) for Mike's birthday. Served in a Bell's tulip.

A - Thin white foam settles to a thin collar and specks of lace. Dark brown body with a hint of transparency at the edges of the glass.

S - Big oak, lots of bourbon too, with some dark fruits and cherries, as well as a touch of chocolate. Quad is a tad overwhelmed, but it tries valiantly to hold up to the barrel-aging; the oak does dissipate a bit as the beer warms up with more fruity sweetness coming out instead.

T - The taste features hefty doses of vanilla, caramel, dark fruits, and candi sugar. Bourbon manifests mostly in the finish, with sour mash and oak flavors lingering into the finish. Reasonably well-hidden alcohol - guessing this is around 10%.

M - Smooth, medium-full body, with light tannic oak dryness, and some mild stickiness lingering in the finish. Fairly low carbonation level, and not a ton of alcohol warming.

D - A very good barrel-aged quad; not mind-blowing, but eminently drinkable and surprisingly balanced for a Jackie O's barrel-aged beer. I had a few refills of this one, and I'd gladly drink it again. Should improve a bit over the next 6-12 months, but the balance of barrel and base beer is already pretty good.

Thanks to MarkInthecar for hooking up the Ohio treats.
Bottle 269 of 300 yes it matters kind of not really, srs.

Poured it like a boss but yielded no head just a bubble ring that the beer used like a hula hoop when swirled. Looking like some dark leather couch that you could crash on but not want to stain the uniform color.
Nose was velvety and Belgian yeast with some heavy booze notes. Little bit of biscuit.
Oh Mr. Pappy you've done it again (read in Magoo's voice.) Yeah man I can taste the Pappy, doesn't just taste like any random bourbon barrel but definitely roars of .rar Paps. The bourbon notes are pretty big overlaying the quadesqueness of the beer with similar notes as the nose.
Dat feel oh dat mouthfeel. Not sure why I can't hold all the feels. A tad thin but delicious.
pvw/10 would drink again.

Poured from the bottle into a tasting snifter.

Appearance: Pours a dark mahogany with a layer of off white head that goes away quickly.

Smell: Very sweet and rather fruity. Dark fruits, raisins and plum. The pappy gives it a caramel smell.

Taste: Sweet and malty up front, dark fruit, brown sugar, and caramel. The bourbon flavor a are very smooth. The finish is full of sweet heat and remains smooth.

Mouthfeel: The body is on the syrupy side with a good amount of carbonation and a dry finish.

Overall: I thought this was a nice sweet beer. Quite smooth and easy to drink.
