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.

Catching up on old notes, thanks to rudzud for sharing.

No head, super dark molasses brown color.

Nose... oh wow! tons of aged wood and smooth bourbon, vanilla, light cocoa, caramel, nutty, even some dark fruits, so much great aged bourbon though.

Taste is also awesome, rich dark malts, caramel, quad flavors, sweet malts, brown sugar and molasses, dark fruits and nuts again, then barrel! bourbon, velvety bourbon, an actual Pappy taste surprisingly with that aged smooth woody vanilla bourbon flavor, more vanilla barrel, rich and so great. Also get hints of cinnamon nutty flavor. Some warming booze, tingly.

Mouth is thick and rich, creamy, lighter carb.

Overall amazing!

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.

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 237/300

The beer is brown with a thin beige collar. The aroma offers bourbon and roast. Smells nice. Vanilla and brown sugar with bourbon and hints of chocolate. Quite tasty. Medium bodied with fairly low carbonation. Another fine beer aged in PVW barrels.

Shared with JLindros at his Birthday Whale Tasting. Reviewed from notes. HUGE thank to miketd for this bad boy.

A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a light reddish brown hue with a thin off white blanket of a head that fades to leave a light halo.

S - The nose is incredible. Just incredible. Pappy aromas EXPLODE, caramel, vanilla, barrel, light dark fruits and cherries. Sweet Quad and incredibly delicious bourbon combine to create an outstanding nose.

T - Taste is just as incredible as the nose. Outstanding Pappy barrel notes, wood, smooth bourbon, light chocolate, vanilla, caramel, flashes of dark fruits. Delicious.

M - Mouthfeel is smooth, lightly carbonated.

O - Overall this is an outstanding beer. The base beer is made even more epic by letting it sit in the barrels. Just incredible.

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.
