Served from a 16oz bottle into a Smuttynose big beer tulip. 2014 bottle. Four Roses barrel I believe. Cellar temp.

Appearance- Black with quick two finger caramel head that left no lacing.

Smell- Cocoa, light coffee, vanilla, sweet bourbon (Four Roses is really sweet), some mild booze heat. Real nice.

Taste- Bittersweet chocolate, vanilla, oak, caramel, cinnamon, light booze heat. The Four Roses is real prevalent. It's damn near perfect as far as bourbon barrel aged beers go.

Mouthfeel- Smooth, creamy, velvety, soft, medium carbonation. Again, damn near perfect. Very, very light booze heat.

Overall- This is a phenomenal beer. I actually didn't have huge expectations for it, but I want more now. The first Jacks Abbey beer to really wow me.

Bottle into a Duvel tulip. Thanks Drew!

A: Black with russet highlights and a finger of fine tan head. Good retention and spotty lace. Attractive.

S: Heady and roasty. Dark chocolate, char, light vanilla, and some sharp aromas that remind me of herbal hops. Weird, and not what I ws expecting, but not bad.

T : Anise, oak, char, baker's chocolate, and a profoundly bitter, astringent finish. Disappointing.

M: Lively, creamy medium body. A little on the thin side, but enjoyable.

O: Nowhere near as good as the base. Here's hiping the Coffee and Vanilla variants are better.
