On tap at the brewery pub in Athens.
Clear but nearly opaque reddish-brown body with a good beige head. Patterned lacing is left sticking to the glass.
Enticing and complex aroma but without a clear walnut note.
Flavor: bold, lightly boozy, with hints of molasses, bitter chocolate and toasted dark bread. Mildly bitter finish.
Full, lightly oily body with light carbonation.

L: Poured from a bottle to a snifter glass. Had a dark brown / black color and a thick, opaque consistency. There was a half inch of creamy, tan-colored head that lasted an average amount of time. Good, but not great, lacing.

S: A very nice aroma of malt, chocolate, nuts, and coffee.

T: Tasted of a good amount of dark malt (present throughout), a good shot of the advertised walnuts, some chocolate notes, light coffee, a burnt quality, and caramel. A sneakily complex flavor that gets better as you go along. Subtle and sweet. Has a similar quality to Dark Apparition, but this isn't a problem. Tasty.

F: A solid amount of carbonation with a super smooth finish. Medium-bodied.

O: This is a well made, easy to drink stout. Worth a try.

My first review of a Jackie O's beer from the great state of Virginia(a state that does not see distribution0. dark, dark brown with minimal head and almost non-existent lacing. Aroma is full of deep dark malts and sweetness. Taste is heavy malts and a nice dryness from the walnuts. This is a nice stout. MF is good, slightly dry and full of deep malts and an ever so slight bit of bitterness from the hops. the nut factor is nice but definitely not overpowering as the balance is done quite well and the overall feel is pleasant even with the higher abv. Walnuts are a player, although not big, but leave a nice feel and produce a good stout

A - Dark brown-black body, largely opaque, with thin tan head, minimal, with extensive, super tight bubbled lacing.

S - Surprisingly quiet nose, malt and chocolate present, but just a trace.

T - More roasted malt and char on the tongue, joining nutty chocolate and malted milk ball notes. Close is mildly bitter, building over time, but not harsh.

M - Brisk feel on the tongue, some minimal warmth, and a slightly dry finish. Given this beer's heft, it is amazing how easy this one drinks.

O - Surprisingly refined and clean, especially for the ABV. Enjoyable enough, but this has a couple years on it and may have experienced some drop off, as the flavors are a touch less saturated than I'd expected.

Pours dark brown from the bottle, sits black in the glass. Khaki cap sticks around, but not much lacing left behind.

Smells of roasted malts, chocolate, coffee, nuts.

Taste follows. Lots of roast and bitter coffee. A distinct nuttiness which I can't quite place as walnuts specifically. Chocolate sweetness and some lingering alcohol on the aftertaste. Bitterness lasts for some time.

Medium bodied, slick and oily. Rather smooth. A worthy stout.
