L -- Pours a very deep brown body with a scant half finger of pale brown head produced with aerated pour. Head recedes quickly, leaving a small ring of foam around the edge of the glass. No lacing
S -- Smoke, maple, vanilla, caramel, bourbon, sugar-dusted dark fruits, dark chocolate
T -- Largely follows the nose. The maple is noticeable but doesn't overpower and instead integrates very nicely with the rest of the smokey, barrely, fudgy tastes going on here
F -- Big mouthfeel, minimal carb. Nice silkiness to it, much more than the other Jackie O's stouts I've had
O -- The major downfall here is the price, at $15/13oz bottle... Otherwise this stuff is fabulous. Just about as good as BA Oro Negro

2018 vintage - Pours dark brown-black with a khaki tan foam head. Smells like maple toast, roasty nutty bready malts, graham crackery, slight coconut, dark fruits, hint of dried cherry, maple syrup, bourbon, oak, mild vanilla, caramel, chocolate, some coffee, light smokiness, with mild earthy hops. Tastes like dark cherry, dark fruit, chocolate, caramel, nutty roasted malts, coffee, toasted bread, maple syrup, vanilla, bourbon, oak barrel, mild smoke, hint of coconut, graham cracker, maple toast, with earthy hops to balance. Smooth thick medium body, moderate low carbonation. Really nice bourbon barrel aged imperial porter with maple syrup.

375 ml bottle into snifter, 2017 vintage bottling. Pours opaque dark brown/black color with a small fairly dense khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a thin spotty lace cap that lingers. Light spotty lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of big milk/dark chocolate, cocoa, maple syrup, caramel, brown sugar, toffee, vanilla, fudge, marshmallow, bourbon, toasted oak, nuts, and dark/brown bread; with light notes of coconut, coffee, molasses, licorice, raisin, plum, fig, cherry, smoke, char, leather, tobacco, herbal, and roast/toast/oaky earthiness. Touch of booze in the aromas as it warms, but not overwhelming. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of dark/roast/bready malt, maple syrup, and bourbon barrel notes; with great strength. Taste of big milk/dark chocolate, cocoa, maple syrup, caramel, brown sugar, toffee, vanilla, fudge, marshmallow, bourbon, toasted oak, nuts, and dark/brown bread; with light notes of coconut, coffee, molasses, licorice, raisin, plum, fig, cherry, smoke, char, leather, tobacco, herbal, and roast/toast/oaky earthiness. Mild herbal, roast, char bitterness; and bourbon/oak tannin spiciness on the finish. Lingering notes of milk/dark chocolate, cocoa, maple syrup, caramel, brown sugar, toffee, vanilla, fudge, marshmallow, bourbon, toasted oak, nuts, dark/brown bread, light dark fruit/smoke/char, leather, tobacco, herbal, and roast/toast/oaky earthiness on the finish for a while. Incredible complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/roast/bready malt, maple syrup, and bourbon barrel flavors; with a solid roast/hop bitter/sweet, and bourbon/oak spiciness balance; with no cloying/acrid flavors after the finish. Slightly increasing dryness from lingering hop/char bitterness and bourbon/oak spiciness. Light-medium carbonation and fairly full body; with a very smooth, creamy/silky/velvety, and lightly slick/sticky/chalky/tannic mouthfeel that is fantastic. Mildly increasing warmth of 12.1%, with minimal barrel booze lingering after the finish. Overall this is a fantastic BBA imperial porter! All around outstanding complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/roast/bready malt, maple syrup, and bourbon barrel flavors; very smooth and dangerously easy to drip on for the big ABV, with the mildly bitter/tannic/drying finish. Amazingly rich/well rounded malt complexity and maple syrup presence; with perfect barrel integration/balance. Not overly roasty/charred on malts, or boozy on barrels. A highly enjoyable offering, and spot on style example as expected.

Similar to lots of their beer this imperial (porter?) stout shows some oak notes which make it kind of vinous. The bourbon is light and the maple absent. Lots of nuts notes. Quite drinkable despite the high abv
