L- Pours a very dark brown with a little light brown head. It fades to a decent ring around the glass.

S- Some bourbon, but not overpowering. A little bit of chocolate and vanilla.

T- Decent chocolate base with quite a bit of bourbon. Just a slight bit of nuttiness.

F- A little thin, but rich. Slight alcohol burn.

O- Pretty good, but I would have liked a little more nutty flavor from the walnut.

I'm reviewing a 2016 version provided by wesmantooth.

The beer pours a deep black with very little, quickly disappating head on a vigorous pour. The pour leaves a small tan ring with a small amount of lacing.

The smell knocks you back with chocolate and bourbon. There is a light roasted malt presence also.

The taste follows the smell with roasted malts, milk chocolate, and bourbon, but it adds a nuttiness from the walnuts the really comes through in the aftertaste. The chocolate also comes through strongly.

The mouthfeel is nicely thick and mildly carbonated.

Overall, this is an excellent beer. It has a great mouthfeel with a nice, balanced taste. The reputation of this brewery is well deserved.

12.7 ounce bottle, 2016 vintage, label says 11.5% ABV. Served in a Jackie O's snifter, the beer pours dark brown/black with almost an inch tan head that stuck around a while. There's also a decent amount of lacing. I like the aroma, the brew smells like bourbon, vanilla, walnuts, molasses and chocolate. I think the taste is similar to the aroma, but with the addition of woody and burnt/charred flavors. Mouthfeel/body is medium/full, it's slick and smooth with a moderate amount of carbonation. I thought it was a good overall brew, definitely worth picking up if you like imperial stouts and/or Jackie O's brews in general. $11.99 a bottle.
