Received in a trade and shared with JLindros.

A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a nice dark brown almost black with a thin mocha head that fades to leave light wisps and great legs.

S - Aromas of chocolate and walnuts, big nutty notes, nice very big rum notes. Big vanilla as well but not much coconut.

T - Taste is similar to the nose with dark chocolate and nuttiness, however, there is a great amount of almost burning alcohol and bitter vanilla extract flavour. This is completely bizarre and out of character for Jackie O's.

M - Mouthfeel is lightly carbonated, little creamy, but flashes of alcohol.

O - Overall this was a baffling beer from Jackie O's; the nose is great but the taste...The taste is full of harsh almost off flavours. Incredibly puzzling.

Thanks to rudzud
No head, good long thick legs, no retention, very dark brown color little light

Nose very fudgey, cocoa, chocolate, some nutty peanutbutter, and big walnut, some vanilla, plenty of rum and light barrel, fruity rum, but no coconut,

Taste rich dark chocolate cocoa, vanilla ice cream and fudge, super nutty, big walnut, mild peanutbutter, very light rum, mild alcohol, spicy alcohol, fudgey, rich chewy with some dark roasty notes, drier but sticky finish, more alcohol, bitter spicy hop finish

Mouth is fuller bod, rich creamy thick, medium to a little lighter carb, some warming alcohol

Overall mixed, mine was petty good, but Matt's taste was so so, so eh
