look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance - Pours dark burgundy color with nice tan head that dissipates to a thin ring around the glass. not much lacing.

Aroma - Lots of vanilla, plum, bourbon and oak.

Taste - Super smooth reminds me of a barleywine. Lots of dark fruit plum, figs and a ton of bourbon. The bourbon does not overpower but is warm and smooth. Seems like a slight sweetness from the honey I assume and a light nuttiness. Vanilla and caramel as well.

Feel - Full bodied and creamy. Soft carbonation warmth from the bourbon.

Overall - Just an amazing beer wonderful flavors easy drinking and smooth.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75

Poured from bottle into oversized Nut Smasher tulip
approx 40 - 45 degrees

Not what I was expecting..dark red/amber color w small off white head

Smells like honey sweetness, vanilla and medium toast oak, graham cracker, w chocolate notes and a huge bourbon character that all Jackie O BA beers are famous for! Mouth watering for sure!

Tastes boozy for sure but the honey sweetness is balancing and delicious. Tastes like a vanilla graham cracker dipped in chocolate and soaked in bourbon (like u would dunk an oreo in milk) Bourbon and heat on the finish w a smooth creamy mouthfeel that makes me wanna drink fast...slow down its 11%

Outstanding job..I almost wanna not rate so high because I rate all Jackie O BA beers high but they are simply DELICIOUS & deserving IMHO!

Poured into a Sierra Nevada Spiegelau glass. Label says 2016.

A- Pours a medium brown color with a 1/4 inch light tan head that retains decently before becoming a thin ring around the edge of the glass and a half sheet of surface foam. Resilient lacing leaves a solid ring behind.

S- A lot more bourbon character than your usual Jackie O's offering and a big helping of clover honey complements that character very nicely. Also has a bit of a nutty thing going on.

T- Elegantly smooth bourbon flavor as usual with lots of vanilla, oak and of course some honey. Nutty, raisiny finish and not very hot at all which is what I was expecting given the intensity of the aroma.

M- Semi-creamy with medium-low carbonation and a fullish body.

O- And they do it again. These guys know their way around some bourbon barrels, I'll tell ya.

2016 date printed inside the outline of the state of Ohio, purchased for $11.99 at local bottle shop (Warehouse Beverage).

1 1/2 finger cream to tan head quickly dissipates after vigorous pour. This is a dark ruby/brown elixir, strands of light filter through the snifter. Faint splotches of lace, tiny islands of white foam. Legs on all sides.

The aroma is predominately barrel/bourbon, vanilla and caramel with subtle tones of nuts and dark fruits.

A nice combo of barrel and bourbon is balanced by the dark fruits and pine. There is a nice plum, raisin flavor that lingers on the backend.

Medium to full body, a bit of hop and alcohol bite, nicely carbonated.

Real nice balance of barrel and dark fruits, more of an old ale to me, so don't let the "wheat wine" label change your perspective.

2015 bottling

Appearance: Pours a hazy mahogany; not much head, little retention and just a few dots of lace

Smell: Caramel, Bourbon, oak, vanilla and toast

Taste: Strong Bourbon tones build through the front end, with caramel, vanilla and toast flavors underneath; boozy, through the middle, with some spice cake flavors arriving in the finish

Mouthfeel: Full bodied with low to moderate carbonation

Overall: Even after at least a year, this beer still packs a wallop; I would prefer to see more subtlety and interplay between the flavor elements

Thanks, Eziel, for the opportunity

look: 2.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Muddy brown copper with lots of tiny tan floaties and a tan collar.

Smell is caramel, honey, brown sugar, prune, and bread dough,

Taste is a bit boozy, like a brandy with a dollop of a honey-dipped Hefe stirred in. I get oak, honey, dark burnt caramel, and faint hint of molasses. Really, this is almost one-note, with not a lot going on.

Feel is smooth and round but also hot and tangy right up front.

Having just had a BB4D probably has me putting this in a bit of a less flattering light than I would have if I'd just had this first. A lot of friends have been talking this beer up lately since it's about to release again, so my expectations may have been placed a bit too high.

375ml bottle, 2015 edition, poured into a snifter
A: Mahogany color, next to no head
S: Bourbon, malt, honey, a bit of chocolate
T: Honey first and foremost followed by bourbon, toffee, a bit of raisin then more honey on the finish
M: Full-bodied, flat, a bit of alcohol comes through
O: This is aging well and has room to go. I wish it had a bit more lively mouthfeel with a touch less alcohol but that's a minor complaint, overall it's quite tasty
