2014 pulled out of my cellar. Too many off flavors.

Strong alcohol, caramel, brown sugar, and some dates. Taste of sugar, caramel, earth, grass, alcohol and some stale grain. This one is a bit of a mess.

Thanks, again, to fiver29 for stocking a corner of my fridge with Jackie O’s beers that I’m just starting to wade through. 375ML stubby, 2014 vintage.

The pour is dark brown, turbid & rough. Low carbonation. Despite just about snorkeling through the glass, I’m picking up close to zero aromas – maybe a touch of sweet caramel, maybe.

Brick Kiln fights in the heavyweight division. The first thing I notice is the heaviness – huge mouthfeel, & the attendant leaden-stomach-syndrome, which I never quite enjoy. Even after a couple of sips, I’m beginning to feel full. The taste is low-key. Sugary caramel, harsh bite of raisin, with a finish of slightly bitter, very herbal hops. Dissipating alcohol jolt right at the end. A small snifter of this is enough.

A very standard effort that’s below the grade of the Jackie O’s stuff that I’ve been sampling recently. Bad? Certainly not. Good? Certainly not. Just beer.

Big thanks to Andrew for the opportunity...thanks man!

Bit harsh around the edges....charred brown sugar and leafy hops that come off a touch rough. Finish is solvent like and hits hard and the alcohol lingers and it's heavy on the palate for sure.

Overall, it's a decent beer and a fun try, but like most of my experiences with Jackie O's..the promise isn't quite delivered.

Bottle: Poured a clear copper color ale with a medium size foamy head with good retention and some good lacing. Aroma of dry caramel malt with grainy notes. Taste is also dominated by caramelized malt notes with some cereal and grainy notes. Body is about average for style with good carbonation. Glad somebody tried to do a barleywine that is not reliant on hops or huge amount of residual sugars. Malt base could be refined but still an enjoyable beer.
