Polycephally VII from Jackie O's is a blend on their in house barrel aged stouts and porters. The beer is deep black and has a heavy bourbon backbone. It is conditioned perfectly on the cocoa and vanilla bean as to not overwhelm. You can definitely tell it is a blend of multiple profiles. Nothing too crazy.

Muddy dark mahogany brown to black with a short tan blanket settling to a persistent ring.

Wow. This has a very mature and complex cask profile. It's got a nice bite of heat paired with solid char, date, toffee, and butterscotch wafer from the peppery, tingly stinging barrel. These notes are softened by a mild chocolate roast, a touch of mocha and a modest but luscious accenting vanilla.

The medium-light body is smoothly slick, broken up by a light crackly fizz that comes to a just dry finish but for a touch of stickiness left on the lips.

These Winking Lizard collaborations continue to impress!

12.7 ounce bottle, 2020 vintage. Served in a Jackie O's snifter, the beer pours dark brown/black with about a half inch tan head. Head retention is decent, and there's a small amount of lacing. I like the aroma, the brew smells like cocoa, vanilla, bourbon, oak, earthiness and roasted malt. I think the taste is similar to the aroma, with chocolate, vanilla, nutty, caramel, roasted malt, oak, bourbon and raisin flavors. Mostly sweet tasting but not overpoweringly so. Mouthfeel/body is full, it's slick, smooth and syrupy with a moderate amount of carbonation. I thought this was a pretty good brew, definitely worth trying if you come across a bottle or 2!
