Thanks to cmillward. Not my cup of random beers thrown together. I mostly got boozy whiskey notes and raspberry syrup. Itís not an altogether bad beer, but the blend and the barrel-aging both donít do it any favors. Thereís a bit of tartness, too much malt sweetness and some earthy notes. Mouthfeel is a bit sticky and hot. Didnít enjoy the aftertaste.

Poured into a snifter. Bottle #3 of 180. 2.5 A: I canít say this is much of a looker. Opaque unripened plum color. The head disappeared as fast as it was produced and thus no lacing. 4.5 S: Fortunately this smells a lot better. Surprisingly, there is still a huge raspberry contribution and it smells great. This also reeks of the "Jackie Oís barrel character," which I guess I would describe a mix of vanilla, oak, and a leathery bourbon with a touch of butter. Behind that is a rich, wheatwine like maltiness. No hints of alcohol, but Iím sure this is up there like just about every other JOís brew. 3.5 T: Again thereís a big raspberry component. The barrel components are there as well, and in full force. Lots of oak, even more vanilla, a light butter flavor, and leathery bourbon. Unfortunately, the malt canít keep up with all this and it seems a bit empty (though still tasty). The mouthfeel makes this very evident as described below. 3.0 M: Lighter medium to medium body. The problem here is that there isnít a rich and creamy body here to keep up with the raspberry and barrel. This is worsened by the undercarbonation that this has going. Itís not flat, but itís at the lower limit of what is acceptable. Due to the lighter body, this isnít as creamy as Iíd like, but it is super smooth. 3.5 D: Not JOís best offering, but still definitely worth a drink. The raspberry works great in this and the barrel aging is welcomed, but there isnít enough malt flavors to keep me too interested. The mouthfeel needs the most work, but itís nothing a little higher mash temp couldnít cure. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 04-24-2011 04:17:59

Thanks to Chris for this bottle, poured into a perfect pint glass... This pours a dark apple cider brown, murky. Little carbonation... The aroma is mostly vanilla, some bourbon, and a hint of sparkling water raspberry... The taste is more of the nose, vanilla is the backbone, some oak, vanilla, more razz, too spirity. The mouthfeel is a touch flat. Not my favorite Jackie Oís, but if you really like vanilla this is worth trying.
