Bottle #89/192

A-pours a dark brown color with a small fizzy off white head that reduces to a small layer skimming the top

S- peat is still prominate after two years giving some smoky malt notes, loads of caramel/toffee malt with a hint of chocolate, smoked peat, finishing with bourbon barrel juice

T- smoky peat flavor gives flavor notes of smoked pork, sweet caramel/toffee malt mixed with barrel juice and oaky vanilla, slightly tart finish with more barrel notes on the finish

M- medium body with low carbonation, slightly oxidized but still some kick to it.

O- peat has subdued after two years, but still prominate. Not for people who don't like peat, but I loved it

Dark brown color, slightly lighter edges, light brown head, small lace.

Plentiful bourbon barrel notes, peat, wood, dark fruits, and a cherry liked note in the back.

Taste was a little lighter on the bourbon barrel, nice woody peat note, dark fruits, spiciness. Cherry notes weren't there in the taste and especially once it warmed.

Full bodied mostly, good carb, pleasant slickness.

650 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Bottle #5 of 300.

Appearance - Deep brown. Small brown head. Nothing exciting. Nothing bad.

Smell - Fruity and a touch of acidity. Always acidity with Jackie O's. Slight aroma of smoke. Just a touch of Bourbon.

Taste - Much fruitier. Acidic from the fruits. I guess it's plums. More smoked malt than the nose. Bourbon also more prominent. Fruitiness lingers throughout.

Mouthfeel - I'm always afraid these will turn sour. It doesn't. Nice slick body with medium low carbonation

Overall - Had this after Alesmith BA Wee Heavy so it fell short, but the fruits added a nice, although distressing, dimension.

The beer was served chilled in a snifter.

A- The body of the beer is dark brown coloration with ruby highlights. The head was a thick nugget coloration and had serious staying power.

S- The aroma of the beer was bourbon, combined with smokey peat, vanilla, oak, cocoa and a bit of earthyness.

T- The beer is loaded with bourbon flavor. Vanilla and caramel sweetness meet slightly smokey peat light cocoa and leathery flavors.

M- The body of the beer is just shy of full. The carbonation is moderate and works well. This is a very smooth and easy to drink beer. No alcohol in the mouth but plenty of alcohol warmth.

O- Dam tasty beer! Drank several of these at the release and would have been thrilled to have some more.
