22 oz. bottle shared by jckp64- thanks again, John! Pours a semi-cloudy mahogany color with a small beige head. Aroma of dark fruits (figs, dates), caramel, oak, bourbon. The flavor has the same barrel notes (oak, bourbon, vanilla, toasted sugar), but more fruit than the nose. Medium-bodied, with a fruity, sweet, almost juicy mouthfeel and low carbonation. A bit too fruity, but otherwise a good beer.

beernbourbon (1284) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - MAR 8, 2013
Bottle thanks to John, thanks! Pour is caramel brown with thin tan head. Aroma is rich with alcohol, light brown sugar, and faint tartness. Flavor also with light tartness, faint brown sugar, light vanilla, and bourbon. Lots going on here.

Maddog (381) - Kettering, Ohio, USA - FEB 23, 2013
Bottle purchased at the brewery in Athens. Another killer barrel aged offering from Jackie O’s. The pour was dark brown with aromas of bourbon and dark fruits. Flavors of bourbon, oak, vanilla and dark fruits are woven together in this deliciously complex beer.

jmikolich (1427) - North Ridgeville, Ohio, USA - FEB 20, 2013
22oz bottle, from Jackie O’s a bit sweet, lots of big vanilla flavor and certainly an odd tasting quad, none of the raisin or plum or alcoholic burn associated just smooth sweet goodness.

Thanks, Matt. Dark fruits in the nose along with mild bourbon. Not nearly as smooth as the Pappy version, but more base. Very mild sweetness.

Thought I was pouring a stout at first! Thick caramel pour with medium viscous tan head. Amazing fruit and bourbon nose. Dried fruit combo of grapes/pears/figs/dates for the flavor followed by a brown sugar tart cherry pie finish. O jackie Ooooo . . .

Tmoney99 (10409) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 25, 2012
Tap sample. Poured a hazy dark brown color with an average frothy brown head that mostly diminished with fair lacing. Moderate to dark sweet malt and small bourbon alcohol aroma. Medium body with a smooth sticky texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy dark sweet bourbon flavor with a medium to heavy sweet finish of moderate to long duration. Improved sweet complex brew.

Sheerbrewing (117) - Athens-Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 22, 2012
Sample on pubside .. Pours a dark brown with thin tan head aroma is rich but clean Belgian and definitely some oak and bourbon. Flavor is a lot more bourbon than the aroma would suggest but there is a rich malt backbone to this that is roasty and then some Belgian yeast character and some alcohol warmth, some dark fruits plum. Overall I am really digging everything comin out of these bourbon barells and this one doesn’t disappoint.

Dogbrick (7585) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 21, 2012
Sample at the brewpub. This beer pours a clear brownish-amber color with a medium light beige head that diminishes steadily to an outer ring. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of earthy malt and bourbon. Medium to full body with flavors of caramel malt, roasted nuts and bourbon. The finish is oaky with a dark fruit and bourbon aftertaste. Pretty good all around.
