COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Soul Jacker, our fiendish blend of Devil’s Milk Barley Wine style ale and Black Jack Russian Imperial Stout dares you to bet against its seductive roasted malt, espresso aroma, palate possessing blend of dark fruit esters that lingers to its bitter end, and evil 9.5% abv. You’ll never regret taking the Devil’s wager, even if you lose your soul.

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JUL 7, 2012
22oz bottle: Pours a transparent dark mahogany with a clingy-lacing froth of beige head. Has a sweet dark caramel malty nose with some raisins and piny hops. Starts with decent fullness and fine carbonation with plenty of sweetness and mild roastiness with notes of toffee and raisins before a slightly warming bittersweet finish with some lingering dark chocolate notes. This beer definitely seems confused to me and a good example of why blending two beers that taste good in their own regard is not always a good idea.

Sampled during CBC 2013. Almost black pour with a small khaki head. Roast, dark fruits, coffee, and chocolate on the aroma. The flavor follows with roast, coffee, chocolate, and dark fruits. I dig it!
