22oz bottle, 250/300. Shared by Tmoney99. Dark color, brown, but near-black. Little light brown head. Good dots of lace. Good chocolate syrup, nutty, bourbon, and... Rum... nose. Something dark, robust, and mysterious in that nose. Bigger body, smooth crisp carbonation. Just a little bite. Rich chocolate flavor, with a good moderate bourbon bite. Woody. Delicious bourbon imperial stout.

Served in a Jackie Os 2012 STAFF glass. Nose has faint bourbon and chocolate. Flavor has good chocolate but also quite a bit of alcohol. Full body. Heat through the finish.

Tmoney99 (10404) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 4, 2013
Staff Bottle. Poured a black color with an average frothy brown head that lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy roasted nuts, candy sugar and bourbon alcohol aroma. Full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Heavy bourbon sweet roasted black malt flavor with a heavy sweet and small bourbon alcohol bite finish of long duration. This is a standout beer.

bottle courtesy of MikeTD/John, Its tough to discern this, as the base beer rocks and its barrel treatments are all great, but not as great as the base? perhaps. the bourbon lingers here and allows more of the sweetness to come through quite good.

Blue-waxed bomber to snifter (thanks tmoney99). Looks good; a viscous black with beige lacing. Smells and tastes of malt and bourbon. Nice and slick on the palate. Good stuff!

JaBier (4730) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - DEC 17, 2012
Bottle shared by a friend in the hotel after night 1 of the Jackie Os 7th Anniversary Extravaganza. Pitch black pour with a thick tan head. Malty and chocolatey nose with bourbon and roast notes. Malty and roasty flavor with some chocolate and coffee and a bit of tartness in the finish. I have to give the nod to the Rum Barrel version, but this is pretty nice too.
