Sampled from a growler at the 2010 March Metro Detroit tasting. Poured black with a dark brown head. Aroma was full of sweeter notes with biscuit and a hint of butter. Flavor reminded me of a grain bin, with a sweet undertone of butter and vanilla.

Growler share courtesy of markwise. It pours deep darkness with thin off white head. The aroma has an initial inviting note of creamy toffee candy followed by a modest amount of dark roasted malts and a light sense of sweet dark berries. The taste is sweet and then becomes vanilla all the while slowly edging toward sweet berry fruitiness. By midway it picks up a thin layer yet persistent layer of dark roasty malts.

Cheers to Markwise for bringing another Jackie-O growler. pours dark brown, off-white head. Aroma chocolate malts, raspberry tartness and vanilla beans. Flavor, a mix between the mild tartness of raspberries and mild vanilla sweetness. Palate is a mix of the chocolate flavors, grainy mouthfeel and roast coupled with the perfect blend of the vanilla beans and mild tartness of the berries make for a rather unique experience. Interesting beer, this brewery has the talent of bringing out phenomenal beers. When you think you had tried everything, Jackie-Os just keeps brewing something unique.

It’s a Jackie O’s beer of course it came from markwise. Cheers to you Mark! A: Pours a nice deep shade of brown with a pretty tall tan colored head. Nice retention with beautiful lace. S: Wow like a chocolate covered raspberry. Lots of chocolate, raspberry puree and vanilla. Very decadent, very dessert like aroma. T: Tasty could serve as a dessert. Nice sweet molasses with a hint of roast. Smack you across the mouth raspberry juice with a nice amount of tartness. Real vanilla beans as well. Tasty and unique. M: On the thinner side, pretty good carbonation. D: Really good. Love what Jackie O’s is doing, glad we have Mark here in Tampa to bring them all in for our group to sample!

On tap at Bodega’s, Columbus, Ohio. Nice head, full bodied and a pleasant aroma. The vanilla and raspberries complement each other quite well with very little aftertaste. somewhat on the sour side as is to be expected from this brewery. I would definitely have another pint.

hopscotch (9100) - Indian River County, Florida, USA - FEB 2, 2010
Growler… Murky, dark brown ale with a small, creamy, beige head. Fruity, chocolaty nose with a subtle note of espresso. Full-bodied and silky with lazy carbonation. The flavor is roasted with miscellaneous berries, but fairly thin and bland. Lightly acidic, cocoa finish. Growler courtesy of darkguardian!

Growler shared by Dogbrick at my Super Awesome Ridiculous Stout Tasting on 1/23/10. Cloudy brown pour with a thin beige head. Aroma of coffee, berry and a bit of vanilla. Raspberry is much more pronounced in the flavor and mixes pretty well with the vanilla and coffee. Nice bitter finish for a beer with ingredients that have the potential to make it too sweet.

Sample from a growler at the Hopsnobbery Collective Stout tasting on 01/23/10. The beer pours black with a thin light brown head that recedes quickly. Stringy lacing. Aroma of roasted malt and raspberry. Medium body with flavors of roasted coffee, raspberry and malt. Touches of vanilla as well. The finish is roasty with a raspberry/vanilla aftertaste. Pretty good all around.

Sample during Jackie O’s 4th Anniversary Extravaganza. We had Betty three different ways. LOL. Standard. Barrel Aged. And Cabbed! Very nice standard for the other two versions. Nice flavors of coffee, berries and vanilla. Very nice and drinkable.
