Thank you Josh for sharing this one! Poured a dark brown color with an averaged sized off white head. Aromas of, drum roll please, lots of raspberries with lighter vanilla and chocolate. Tastes of the same raspberries, chocolate, roasty, and vanilla. A lighter tart finish. Would make a nice dessert beer for sure.

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.

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!

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.

Taster on tap at the brewpub, nitro pour. Dark brown color. Thin light brown head. Good thicker lace, good retention. Medium to bigger body. Smooth, kind of soft, light carbonation. Chewy texture. Awesome dark chocolate, black raspberry aroma, moderate roast and a hint of coffee. Moderate to bigger bitter taste. Light to moderate sweet. Mild, natural, raspberry tart aroma. Creme. Fantastic, delicious stuff. Amazing raspberry imperial porter. Possibly the highlight of the night for me.

Nitro pour on the Public House side at Jackie-Os. Pours a cloudy brown-amber with a creamy khaki cap. The nitro treatment does no favors for the aroma, and maybe the head is blocking, but its so hard to pull anything out of the nose on this one, especially early. The flavor showcases the beer more distinctly-cherry, chocolate, toast, and earth. Light-medium bodied, with moderate carbonation and a sweet, toasty, faintly tart mouthfeel. Id like to try a non-nitro version because it seems like its pretty good.

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.

Draft @ Jackie Os. Pours dark brown with a small beige head. The aroma has a nice roasted malt base with chocolate, raspberries, and vanilla. The flavor is again as advertised; roasted malt, raspberries, vanilla with a nice shot of chocolate. Body is a touch light, but the flavor is good.

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.

On tap at Jackie-Os, Athens OH on 11 March 2010. Dark brown with a creamy beige head. Described as an imperial raspberry vanilla porter. Does just what it says on the tin. Didnt think it would work (especially as I am not particularly fond of vanilla in a beer) but it does. More like blackberry than raspberry. Not too much vanilla. Very tasty.
