12.7oz bottle, 2017 bottling. Poured slowly into a snifter glass to leave the sediment behind.

Appearance: Very dark brown. Very thin light tan ring of foam, with some occasional islands of foam that would slide down the glass to rejoin the ring of foam.

Smell: Mostly bourbon, with a hint of oak/vanilla, and some raisin as it fully warmed up.

Taste: Bourbon notes first, then caramel/toffee, then some marzipan, then another hit of bourbon. Light lingering nutty bitterness.

Mouthfeel: Soft, chewy, nicely thick, dry finish, very warming.

Overall / Drinkability: A great slow sipping and savoring beer. Potent at 13% ABV (as per the label on the bottle). I really could not taste the honey and felt it was masked by the bourbon, but, it's still a very good beer and different than the typical Russian Imperial Stout aged in bourbon barrels at this high of a ABV. I think I would want to try the base beer without the bourbon barrel aging at which point I think I might pick up more of the honey character, but still, worth the high price I paid and a great beer to have on a winter evening.

375ml bottle, 2016 vintage, poured into a 14oz snifter glass.

The beer pours a deep brown color, dark amber, reddish hues with a faint, bubbly bone colored head, low retention and spots of lace. Tons of caramel, brown sugar, rich smooth brown bread, light bourbon, smooth oak barrel, mild charred wood with a light booze that lingers. The flavors are good, very rich and grain forward, dark bread, smooth caramel and toffee, lots of brown sugar with a nice amount of bourbon, lingering charred oak barrel with strong alcohol. The mouthfeel is good, heavy full body, low carbonation, very gentle and smooth, a touch flat at the end that finishes warmly.

Verdict: A good barrel aged wheatwine from Jackie O's. Very rich and smooth, nice grain forward beer. That being said, it's not distinctly wheat forward, but still quite enjoyable as a barleywine style.

L: Poured from a bottle to a snifter. Had a medium brown color and a thick, murky texture. There was a small amount of off white, foamy head that quickly dissipated. Not a whole lot of lacing.

S: A very interesting aroma of honey, caramel, bourbon, and vanilla.

T: Tasted of a lot of caramel (never a bad thing), some honey, a whole bunch of bourbon (almost overpowering at first), light vanilla, oak, malt, and a lightly nutty quality. This is a big, bold, slightly boozy flavor that's quite well done. It's complex, powerful, and kind of unusual.

F: An average amount of carbonation with a warming, yet enervating finish. Medium-bodied.

O: I haven't tried that many wheatwines, but this is probably the best. Well made and drinkable.

Pours out a dark amber with brown hues & a thin ring of head.

Aroma is sweet for sure with caramel/toffee, vanilla, a touch of honey sweetness & some bourbon too.

Taste is also on the sweeter side without being cloying. Caramel/toffee, almost a slight molasses character, touch of honey, some vanilla richness & sweet bourbon. Touch of dry oak in the finish.

Lighter-medium bodied, medium mouthfeel, very smooth and ABV is well hidden.

Really tasty offering from Jackie O's and a nice departure from their BA Stouts!
