3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle 48/384. Shared with Dosbeerigos for his 29th Bday. Had a pleasant sour aroma, hints of cherries etc, but the flavor didnít really match up all the much. It tasted like a stout that got infected, somewhat like Black Tot. I guess I just wanted a little bit more sourness in this one.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
thanks for trade with Tmoney99 --- Cloudy dark ruby with no head, no lace. Looks like wine. Taste is tart cherry wine with some wood and leather (like the bottle says). No change through the palate and finish. 2012 bottle, so it has aged a bit. Interesting, but youíll have to prove to me that it is a beer and not a dry wine.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Large shared bottle poured red-brown. Quite dark with a bubbly weak head.
The aroma has a nice cherry note but the cherry component is much diminished in tasting. Light-moderate tartness with a light bitterness in the finish. Slightly boozy.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours reddish black with small head. Aroma and flavor very Flemish In nature. Smells like chocolate covered dark cherry funk with light herbal qualities. Flavor of sour cherries, cabarnet, vinegar, must, and light chocolate. Flavor is very similar to a Flemish or lambic as well. Quite interesting

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled 11/22/2009, bottle 3/156.
Pours a dark black cherry color with a half finger off-white head that quickly settles into a very thing ring. Not much in the way of lacing.
Sweet, vinous dark fruit aroma with tons of cherry and subtle barrel character. Slightly tart smelling with faint oak countering the wine and sweet cherries. Underneath thereís a touch of roasted malt but the nose of this beer is dominated by the sweeter fruit notes.
Medium bodied with a lightly puckering, tart mouthfeel thatís balanced by sweet, vinous fruit and subtle roasted malt. Nice barrel character with some dry oak that compliments the tart cherries and a nice cabernet presence that gives off some nice vinous dark fruit notes. Hints of grape and dark berries compliment the sweet and tart cherries. Thereís also a bit more of a malt presence than the nose suggests with some chocolate, toast and caramel. More dry and tart than sour with an excellently masked ABV that makes it deceptively drinkable. Well balanced and pretty flavorful. One of the better beers Iíve had so far from Jackie Oís.
