In February of 2008, Jackie Os decided to start experimenting with wild yeast and bacteria. The first experiment was Grand Wazoo. Three glass carboys were filled with our Imperial Raspberry Vanilla Porter "Black Betty" and allowed to rest for six months on various sour cultures. Over the years Grand Wazoo has evolved and is now aged in bourbon barrels with more raspberries added during the aging period. Grand Wazoo was the catalyst for our sour project and what is now more than half of our barrel aging program. In three years, three carboys turned into 20 barrels and counting and those same sour cultures are still going. Cheers to the brew that got it started and is hands down the most extreme beer Jackie Os produces. Chill before serving, decant slowly to keep the raspberry sediment at bay, then allow to warm. Share with friends now or age in your cellar for future celebrations.

Brewers note: In 2011 Black Betty (imperial raspberry vanilla porter) was racked into a bourbon barrel with Brett B. The beer rested for 18 months, with raspberries added toward the end, producing batch 4 of Grand Wazoo

This 2011 batch was also bottled, with a count of 210.

yngwie (16503) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 23, 2013
Bottle, 22oz. A slightly muddy brown beer with a small, dense, light beige head. The aroma has quite a lot of vinegar and a solid dose of higher alcohols. Raspberry, roasted notes and some chocolate. Its quite raspberry-sour in the mouth, semi-dry and pleasantly carbonated. Raspberries, chocolate and some vinegar in the flavor, lasting for a good while. Warming finish with chocolate, booze, raspberry and some vinegar notes. A bit messy this one, lots of good things going on, but overall they doesnt mix very well I think. 131123

brokensail (16055) - Dublin, California, USA - FEB 24, 2012
Pours a murky red-brown color with a small off-white head. Heavy on the wood aroma with a lot of sweet, dark fruit and raspberry. A lot of vinegar and definitely some soy sauce to it as well. The salt and soy sauce flavors are unmistakable here. Lots of vinegar and wood, maybe some caramel malt sweetness, a bit of raspberry and other dark fruit. Really just not enjoyable at all.

jtclockwork (14930) - , New Jersey, USA - MAY 10, 2011
Bottle thanks to Dan. Pours dark brown. Quickly dissipating brown head. Nose/taste of wild yeast, tart raspberry, vinegar, bourbon, wood, tannins and maple. Medium body. Really tart finish. Hint of dryness before the tartness kicks in. The body is a nice strong, maple and chocolate malt - soured with raspberry. Solid. Some caramel sweetness.

Christian (12884) - Odense, DENMARK - NOV 23, 2013
Ulfborg weekend celebration of nothing in particular. Cloudy red brown with a small off-white head. Aroma of funk, raspberry and chocolate. Sweetish and tart raspberry flavour, with vinegar notes, and some boozy alcoholic notes of bourbon. Lots of interesting things going on, but not quite in harmony
