Just another day at Jackie-O's..

Pours dark with nice amount of bubbles.

Smells of bourbon, figs, raisins, slight vanilla and caramel.

Wonderful and of the wall in terms of taste. Bourbon in the front, dark fruits and spices through the middle with a nice vanilla/caramel finish.

Head was nowhere to be seen after a few sips, but luscious from front to back.

Super tasty, super interesting take on a style. Seems to be the calling card here at Jackie O's. Glad their home is in Ohio. We're lucky to have 'em.

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

I had this on-tap at the anniversary party. Served in a tasting glass.

Appearance: The beer pours a mahogany color with some red at the edge when the light comes through. There is almost no head.

Smell: Quite sweet with some raisins and caramel. There is also some heat from the bourbon that hits the nose.

Taste: Super sweet with lots of dark fruit and some cherries. I'm getting caramel along with the bourbon. The finish is also quite sweet.

Mouthfeel: The body is a bit on the syrupy side with foamy carbonation and a dry finish.

Overall: This is a very sweet beer, but I enjoyed it. Fairly smooth. A nice beer to have for dessert. I'd have more.

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.
