Bottle:
A darker brown, seems to have maybe a slight haze, but darkness hides clarity decently well. Very thin rim remains with some time, though it was medium thin for a little while. No lacing.

Nose is is a pecan accented quad - date bread with nuts, perhaps. The bourbon is light but noticeable, along with a nutty maltiness.

Flavor is a little sweeter than the nose indicates, but I am okay with it. It's not overpowering, and includes the accent of the bourbon, including vanilla. And these are accents... noticeable but not overpowering. I keep thinking pecan pie, and while this is much less sweet than the dessert, I can't shake the thought for some reason. I think there is a light bite that acts as the spice, a mild nuttiness, and the bourbon quells but sweetens the date notes.

Truly enjoyable, another beer where Jackie O's adds barrel notes subtly but enjoyably.

Dark brown lacquer with a minimal, thin tan ring.

Smell is caramel, toast, fig, brown sugar and pumpkin pie--spices, crust and all.

Taste is prune, caramel, chocolate, nuts, raisin and oats through a crisp, medium-full slick body with a semi-dry finish.

Even though this one was a single element of the blend, I liked it better than Cellar Cuvée 11.

Sample at Mikkeller Beer Celebration Copenhagen 2017, green session. Aroma has toffee, bourbon and dried dark fruits. Taste is balanced. Lots of toffee, butterscotch, raisins with a light toffee sweetness. Aftertaste lingers with smooth bourbon.

On tap

Pours a deep brown, small foamy khaki head. Smells of brown bread, caramel/toffee, dark fruit, bourbon & oak. Tastes of dark brown bread, fig, raisin, fruitcake, bourbon juice, oak, caramel, toffee and earthy wood. Viscous body with moderate carbonation, thick
And creamy creamy mouthfeel and finish. Outstanding
