look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

12.7 ounce bottle, 2020 vintage. Served in a Jackie O's snifter, the beer pours a dark brown/black color with almost an inch tan head that stuck around a little while. Not much lacing. Aroma is nice, the brew smells like coconut, cinnamon, vanilla, bourbon and chocolate. For the most part I think the taste is similar to the aroma, but there's also the addition of some burnt/charred malt, oaky and molasses flavors. To me the cinnamon and coconut stand out but with the other flavors still noticeable. Mouthfeel/body is medium/full, it's slick and easy to drink with a low/moderate amount of carbonation. I thought this was pretty good, definitely worth picking up if you come across some!

Dull black with muddled brown edges and a thin tan blanket settling to a fine chain around the rim.

This has a Red Hots nose and a crisp chocolatey palate. The coconut is soft and helps emulate a nougatty candy bar, finishing semi-dry. The barrel is quite mild for Jackie O's.

375ml bottle poured into a snifter
2020 Vintage

A- pours black in color with a one-finger foamy khaki colored head that has short retention and leaves nothing behind

S- equal parts cinnamon and bourbon barrel on the nose with undertones of chocolate, coconut, caramel, macaroons & fudge brownies

T- cinnamon initially, along with fudge brownies and caramel. Mid-palate gives a bold coconut note that pops through the initial cinnamon, along with barrel juice and woody oak. The finish brings out notes of chocolate, along with more coconut and cinnamon

M- medium body with moderate carbonation leads to a slightly foamy mouthfeel and finish

O- the cinnamon and coconut really come through, making this one of my favorite dark app variants to date
