Ratman197 (12834) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - MAR 3, 2014
On tap at Avery Strong Ale Fest poured a hazy reddish amber with a small lasting amber head. Aromas of bourbon, oak, vanilla, caramel and light fruitiness. Palate was medium bodied and smooth with a dry finish. Flavors of bourbon, caramel, oak, spice and earthiness with a smooth dry lingering earthy finish.

DrSilverworm (9672) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 2, 2014
Tasted at a bottle share in a hotel room after the most recent Jackie-O’s bottle release. Mostly clear red orange color. Thin off-white head. Couple bits of lace. Lots of caramel, dark fruit in the nose. Bigger body. Smooth, lightly soft, lighter carbonation. Tropical fruity hop notes. Moderate sweet taste, light bit of tartness. Light bit of spiciness. Alright barley wine, for me. I don’t care for them being this tropical fruity.

phaleslu (9021) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 2, 2014
Bottle shared by the Dayton crew at the Jackie-O’s release hotel bottle share. Thanks! Pours a cloudy amber color with a small off white head. Notes of brown sugar, raisins, dates, cake, and toffee. Medium-bodied, with a sweet, malty mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Good beer, but very sweet.

djd07 (8832) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAY 13, 2013
On tap at Petrol Station. Pours a clear amber with medium beige head that diminishes quickly. The aroma is roasted malt raisin and caramel. Medium mouthfeel with sweet roasted malt, chocolate and sweet finish. Very impressive.

Ibrew2or3 (8010) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - APR 26, 2016
Poured up on tap at AZ Strong Beer Fest 2016 where it exhibits a slightly hazy deep copper body that has thin gold edges and supports a tan head of foam. The aroma offers up aged malts, blunted and aged malty pine hops and then kind of a crystal malt sensation toward the end of the draw. The taste is soft, smooth and delicious where I get slick sweet malts and then quickly nuanced with sticky pine hops and kind of faint yet heavy sweet dark fruity esters. This is just coming across as a delicious deep and balanced sipper.

Bottle shared at Aaron’s. Sweet. Very sweet. Malty. Fruit. Almost like an aged Double IPA. Ok overall.

Mora2000 (6138) - McKinney, Texas, USA - MAY 10, 2013
On tap at Jack Mac’s. Brown with a tan head. The aroma is full of brown sugar and caramel malt. The flavor is more complex. I get a lot of sweet brown sugar and caramel malt up front. As the beer warms the oak and rye whiskey notes come through lightly, along with some resinous pine character. Fairly sweet overall. Thick mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Very nice.
