Tasted on 4/28/12 with the Nashville and Knoxville crews at Curtis’ old house, big thanks to JR for bringing this one. Pours nearly black with a thin tan head that leaves thin lace. The nose is tons of milk chocolate with maple, vanilla, coconut, and caramel. The flavor is decently sweet with all of the same malt profile and barrel treatment from the nose. The body is full with average, smooth carbonation, and a long milk chocolate, maple, vanilla, and coconut finish.

Bottle 44/216, thanks StFan. The pour is dark and has a nice dark brown head. The aroma does have some sense of infection. A hint of bourbon. I detect some sense of infection in the taste, but I have had worse. It does have a faint taste of bourbon. Not really any chocolate.

It is a good precaution for those subject to the disease, a nightmare, to sleep with someone to rouse them, on feeling their convulsive motions; for really they not unfrequently end in death. On awakening, a glass of cordial may be given, but in full stomachs, a vomit is better.

Opaque black beer, tidy tan head. Softish palate, semi dry. Nice balance of dark chocolate and very tangy, almost sour, bourbon. A little wood. Semi dry finish. Mild minerals. Quite a simple beer but nicely joined up and effortlessly drinkable.

ksurkin (1021) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - JUN 19, 2012
22oz bottle with huge thanks to goryshkewych for this awesome extra. thanks, George! pours a silky, oily black capped by a dark tan head that leaves thin, bubbly rings of lace. aroma is damn nice with heavy dark chocolate, woody bourbon, caramel, and toasted coconut backed by notes of dried plums, raisins, and red wine. flavor is great with slightly vinous dark fruit notes of black cherry, plum, and raisin up front backed by bitter dark chocolate, roast, and caramel with a hefty dose of charred barrel, slightly tart bourbon, and a touch of vanilla on the finish. palate is medium bodied with crisp carbonation and a lingering, dry, woody finish. overall, a damn good barrel aged stout but i can’t help but think the dark fruit notes and high carbonation are an early warning sign of infection. i still dug it though.

phaleslu (6397) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 6, 2012
22 oz. bottle shared by dbsdelight- thanks a bunch, Dan! 2011 vintage, bottle 76/216. Pours a dark chocolate brown with a small tan ring for a head. The aroma has a weird plum note on top of chocolate, vanilla, coconut and toast- but it somehow works and doesn’t ruin it. The flavor has a hint of that as well, but not as much because there’s a ton of chocolate, vanilla, caramel, and cream. Medium-bodied, with mild carbonation and a creamy, sweet mouthfeel. This would really be something if it had some roast or toast to it.

Draft @ Jackie O’s (from notes). Pours dark brown with a small beige head. The aroma was roasted, bourbon, semi-sweet chocolate with some wood and hints of alcohol. The flavor was more bourbon, semi-sweet chocolate, roast, vanilla and wood. This doesn’t have the same body as the other Jackie O’s stouts.

Glouglouburp (6004) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 13, 2012
In short: A syrupy, boozy, very bourbonny and not so chocolaty stout. Acceptable sipper at best
How: Bottle 22oz. Consumed approximately 10 months after the beer release. Bottle 77 of 216 sent to me by alexsdad06, thanks a lot Brad
The look: Black body topped by a small tan head
In long: Nose is quite boozy, obvious bourbon barrels, very light notes of chocolate. Taste is oily black cake, a lot of bourbon barrels, sticky tar, lots of vanilla extract, coconuts, booze, sensation of vinous red-wine barrels, rubber, chocolate muffin. Obviously very sweet. Soft carbonation. Not very chocolaty for a beer with Chocolate in the name. Body feels thinner than it should be, like watery slime. There is also an overall unwanted acrid character to this beer. Overall, this is not a bad beer, I drank the full bomber, but the current 4.01 average rating is a joke. A decent beer but nothing screams "Overrated" like a big boozy Jackie-Os rare beer and nothing screams "Pervert!!!" like Jackie from across the street when she sees me in her bedroom window.
