Bottles from the always generous phaseslu and BBB. Thanks pals! Consumed with family and friends at a little graduation bbq in south bend. Taste of molasses doughy figs and tangy plums. Dark chocolate and bourbon. Touch of vanilla. The rare really comes forth as it warms. Some nice throat warming heat kicks in. Tasty. Like. Would buy again for 20 bucks. Thanks again beer friends!

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Compliments of UMNBeerhunter. Poured into a tulip glass a dark, black brown color with a slight tan head. The aroma contains a multitude of smells including first and foremost the bourbon aroma the barrels imparted followed by molasses, dark chocolate, and some vanilla. I must be a little sensitve to the bourbon as in this beer it seems it almost burns the nose a little when you take a big whiff. Medium/heavy mouthfeel. Roasty, sweet, vanilla, oak, bourbon all hit your tongue at the same time and meld rather well together. The vanilla comes through pretty nice. Overall, a really good beer. I’d like to see the bourbon "heat" relax with some additional time and see where it goes.

bottle shared at the May Houston RB Tasting. Pours black with light-brown bubbles for head. Nose is of molasses, chocolate, licorice and bourbon. Very complex and potent stuff. Taste is delicious chocolate, molasses, bourbon and molasses. Incredibly tasty. Mouthfeel is medium with alcohol noticeable. Top-notch brew.

Bottle 3078. Thanks to Maltomeal for this beer. Pours a obsidian black with no head. Lots of head on this beer...wow. Nose of bourbon, molasses, bitter dark chocolate, and dark fruits. Flavor is HUGE alcohol...dark fruits, oak, and spices. Way too hot right now, but a delicious beer.

Rating #1700. First off I love BCS and I think every variation of it is good to awesome. But really, this takes the place as one of the best. Dark oily black with a brown ring of a head. Rich aged malts old oak and bourbon aromas, like it’s been aging for about 5 years. Milky chocolate aged toasty roasty sweet flavors with mellow delicious bourbon. Creamy bourbony body a touch of spicy heat in the tongue long after the beer is gone. But overall ridiculously smooth. Great bourbon and roast like a bourbony chocolate shake. I’m lovin this beer. This has to be one of my favorite beers of all time. Amazing. 9/5/9/5/19

Shared by Kan at the hotel tasting of the last Jackie O’s release. I was completely expecting this to be some over-hyped piece of shit, but it was incredibly good. Thick, viscous mouthfeel. Aroma of coffee, vanilla, and molasses. The taste follows the aroma, is well balanced and unbelievably easy to drink for such a big beer. Well done!
