The first beer I tried at the Jackie O's 4th Anniversary Extravaganza.

Pours a hazy golden yellow with little head that leaves some lacing on the glass.

The aroma on this beer is amazing. I get a ton of butterscotch. A little vanilla and pronounced bourbon. I couldn't stop smelling this beer.

Tastes of vanilla, banana and oak with a powerful bourbon ending that is perfectly balanced.

Medium mouthfeel. Tingles on the tongue.

Surprisingly drinkable given the high ABV. All around delicious beer.

Got to taste this while in Athens this past weekend...and took a growler to go.

This beer is quite astounding.

Pours a nice hazy golden color with little to no head

Smells of whiskey (bourbon), vanilla, oak cocoa nibs, pine, citrus. The smell is tantalizing, truly unique and heavy on the bourbon barrel aroma...it's a Belgian style, aged in oak. And, man, the aroma here is potent and exquisite!

Tastes of Bourbon, vanilla, green peppercorn, Belgian candy sugar, spice, cloves, orchard fruit...very complex and aromatic...

This beer is incredible. One that I would love to come back to again and again. It's powerful, but very, very drinkable. What an excellent blend of malts, hops, and Bourbon/Whiskey flavors. This beer is well made and top notch. If you have the chance to get some of this, drink a glass at the bar and take a growler home. Nicely done.

A: Pours a deep straw color with a thin yet bubbly head that manages to stick around for the haul.

S: Light but pleasant banana and bubblegum hiding underneath a big pleasantly sweet vanilla and bourbon nose.

T: Nice banana and bubblegum maltiness hit the palate as the aroma of the bourbon fills the rest of your mouth.

M: Medium body with just enough carbonation. Pretty clean finish for such a big brew.

D: They hide the alcohol very well in this beer. Works for me as I could easily drink a few of these.
