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.

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.

Deep mahogany pour with a small color of bubbles for a head. Aroma of dark fruits and bready yeast, boozy heat right from the get-go. Taste of caramel malts and dark fruits, grain alcohol, pumpernickel, and a pretty big oak quality. Not as smooth as I like my BB beers to be, but this is a style I don't often have in a barrel-aged form. Body was medium, smooth, hot, but not too hot, appropriate carbonation. Pretty good overall.
