Bottle shared by ygtbsm94. Thanks mang! Let's get this shit started. Dark brown body with a small beige head. Oak, roast, tannic qualities, vanilla. Sweet roast, light chocolates. Lots of wood and sweet wine / rum character. Good for splitting a few ways.

Pulled this one from my cellar for my 700th BA full review. This is the 2014 vintage.

A strong pour achieves about an inch of chocolate brown head. Body is jet black just like 3000 mile used motor oil. Nose is fragrant with distinct tones of rum soaked walnuts. Black cherry, dark fruits and dark chocolate plays on the nose as well. Rich and chocolatey as it enters the mouth. Very much like eating german chocolate cake. The boozyness builds as you continue to drink this one. This beer would benefit from a couple more years in the cellar. Very thick on the mouthfeel.

Shared this beer during a little cellar cleaning party with JLindros. 2012 vintage bottle # 59/216. Reviewed from notes.

A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip an oily black hue with a rather thin mocha head. Decent legs.

S - Aromas of pleasant rum, light nuts, dark chocolate, bakers chocolate, minor booze.

T - Taste is similar to the nose. The rum is really soft and the chocolate and nuts lends to a nice fudgy/chewy flavour profile. Just a little bit of booze on the finish.

M - Mouthfeel is smooth, velvety, really nice.

O - Overall this beer was another tasty stout from Jackie O's. Glad to be able to share them with fellow beer drinkers.

500 ml bottle poured into can glass

A: very dark not much head but what there was had a caramel hue to it then it settles to a nice frothy film

S: pure rum I can smell some tart caramel

T: lots of caramel and vanilla with sweet nuttiness. Lots of sweet booze a little leather some roasted malts

M: nice thick feel a little cloying

O: this beer flavor wise is jaw dropping there is so much going on here I can't explain it all. The rum barrel is amazing. This beer is quite amazing

There's just something off about this which is a shame because I love all of the other BA Jackie O's.

A big thanks to Jeff for this little gem. 375ml capped bottle into OEC stemware. Shared with schen9303.

Pours a .5 finger mocha colored head with little retention. Beer is thick, oily and pitch black. Lacing is stringy and spotty with good stick and big, filmy legs. Quite menacing.

Nose is alarmingly tart. Notes of sour dark fruit, roasted malt, cocoa powder, lactose, chocolate and booze. A bit strange though very aromatic.

The first taste confirms that my nose isn't lying. Opens tart plum and prune. Some chocolate, vanilla and roasted malt hides in the background but these are almost completely overtaken by the roasty, grainy sour taste. Boozy throughout but that just enhances the tartness. Roasty finish with a puckering, smoke and tart dark fruit aftertaste. I'm sure this isn't what the brewer intended.

Full bodied with low carbonation. Thick and chewy in the mouth and goes down slightly hot and viscous. Messy finish with a lingering, heated aftertaste. Decent.

As a sour stout, this isn't terrible... but its not good either. As a regular stout, this is clearly infected. Just not a very good beer.

Appearance is pitch black
Aroma is dark chocolate fudge, vanilla, candy bar
Flavor is dark chocolate and bitterness mixed with vanilla and oak.
Mouthfeel is slightly thin but the carbonation is fine.
Overall this well exceeded my expectations.
