COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
NOTE: There is only one Oak Aged Black Jack Stout for DuClaw; please enter your rating here.

"Aged for two months in whiskey barrels, this classic, creamy Russian imperial stout antes up with aromas of charred oak and vanilla, before doubling down with a hearty, full body and smooth, roasted malt flavor. Though well balanced and highly drinkable, play the odds, respect the game, and remember...all bets are final."

The beer is dark brown with a thin, oily, beige head. The aroma brings chocolate, roast, bourbon, oak. Milk chocolate flavor. While bourbon character is present, it's pretty mild overall. At only 8.2%, which is low for a barrel aged imperial stout, this brew is all about smooth sailing and less about bold, aggressive bourbon barrels and hefty roast. Medium bodied, though light bodied for the style. Low carbonation and smooth on the palate. Milk chocolate and/or chocolate milk. Pretty good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Deep black with a small tan head. Aroma and flavor of dark fruits, oak, whiskey, roasted malts, and vanilla. Finish and aftertaste of overripe plums and booze.

Man, this is a really nice whiskey infuse stout through and through. No pretentiousness here, just great brewing. I got the barrel-aging, which was well infused with the dark malt. The finish had a bitter, chalkiness that I’m personally fond of in many BBA stouts.

joeneugs (2932) - Livermore, California, USA - JUN 21, 2013
22 oz. bomber. It pours a very dark brown color with a nice tan/orange head. The aroma has some spicy wood, dark chocolate and some whiskey phenols. A little raisin as it warms. The flavor is the same. Dry with spicy wood and some vanilla, whiskey, dark chocolate, currants and raisins. Good full mouthfeel and carbonation. A bit lacking in richness of flavor, but otherwise good.

Hophead22 (2880) - Redlands, by way of Wisconsin,, California, USA - MAR 30, 2013
22oz bottle from Gabe. Rating #113. Nice beer, not really that much different from the regular version, just a little bourbon character is the only difference. (2618)

5000 (6027) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAR 28, 2013
Bottle:   Nearly black, thin whispy light brownish head, sparce lacing.   Roasty nose, ashy, soft dark chocolate and coffee.   A bit dry on the tongue, not real strong in terms of Oak.   Ashy, with a nice campfire roasted malt finish.   Dry on the tongue.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Dry and ashy on the finish.   Would like to see more barrel aged character, but as is its decent.

Pours black with ruby hues and a medium mocha head. Aroma has molasses, brown sugar, dark fruit, and whiskey. Flavor has whiskey, vanilla, burnt wood, molasses...roasty. Mouthfeel is medium/full with a warming burnt/bitter dry roasty finish.

tricyclist (536) - Florida, USA - MAR 3, 2013
Snifter pour of deep black murky liquid with a healthy khaki head. Nose is healthy booze and whiskey, honey and vanilla. Flavor is also boozy and healthy. I’m digging this one. Plenty of dark chocolate and vanilla. This thing is pretty great.

Elwood (2960) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - MAR 2, 2013
Serving: 22 oz. bottle from State Line Liquors. It pours jet black with a thick tan head. The nose smells heavily of bourbon, roasted malt, and oak. The flavor follows suit. It is a bit over oaked with the wood and bourbon dominating in the beginning. Vanilla, creamy cocoa, and a little earthy mushroom come out as it warms. It could use just a little more balance and harmony.

Advocate_Ames (390) - Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 27, 2013
A nice aroma of whiskey, oak, roasted malts, and vanilla. I taste everything that I could smell in addition with lite dark chocolate and lite coffee flavors. There is a cream stout texture in the black jack stout. The whiskey was impressive. It was not too weak or over potent in flavor. The whiskey blended nicely with the malts. In the finish I get a mild bitterness. Overall I enjoyed this beverage. It wasnt sweet, it wasnt too bitter, it was just right.

Bacterial (1205) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - FEB 13, 2013
22 oz bottle pour. Thick tan head with small and medium bubbles over a dark, but not thick, stout. Big wood and chocolate malt in the nose. Maybe a hint of whiskey there. Easy drinking with lots of complexity - the thin mouthfeel is a good thing here as it allows many other flavors to come through, including the whiskey which adds just a touch of heat to the aftertaste.
