Bottle shared by bsuedekum- thanks again, Blake! 2011 bottle #120/348. Pours an opaque dark brown with a small dark tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, coffee, chocolate, toast, and a lot of grains. Flavor of roasted malts, dark chocolate, oat-like grain, coffee, molasses, cola, and some faint dark fruit. Lingering roast. Medium-bodied, with low carbonation and a Roasty mouthfeel. Nice, straightforward imperial stout.

Pours inky dark void with mocha head. The aroma is mostly roasty malts, rich coffee goodness, burnt malts, black strap molasses and dark chocolate. The taste is smooth rich and roasty. I get dark chocolate, dark roasted malts, burnt malts and sweet yet singed black strap molasses. Just below those notes lurks the likes of dark roasted coffee, some mild oak notes and a thin river of sweet rum. Lovely

Thanks to Dan for sharing the growler at DLD! Poured highly-viscous near black with almost no head on top. The aroma picked up warm dark chocolate, syrupy molasses, and a touch of honey accented by vanilla beans and earth.. greener hop presence that I couldnt easily place. The flavor found dark chocolates, black patent, and coffee maltage at the core.. moderately-roasty.. syrupy and hot on the finish.. again the bitterness was fresh and green, but hard to place. Highly-viscous and coating on the palate with fine peppery alcohol accents.. bitterness rose throughout and actually became a bit too much in the end.. still a tasty brew!

Bomber. Pours a totally black color with a thick large brown head. The aroma is caramel corn, vanilla, sugars. The flavor is a rich combination of nutty, some butter, roasted malts, sweet brown sugar, sour cherries, the nutty sweet flavor dominates. An interesting brew, the Belgian spirit shows. Nice.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JAN 14, 2012
Bottle thanks to Puddintane: pours an oily opaque black with a small creamy beige head. Has a sweet dark caramel and chocolate nose with a touch of espresso and raisins. Starts with good fullness and chewy dark malty sweetness with some rum raisin and nutty complexity before a drier roasted and creamy finish that hides the alcohol well. Has a faint hint of vinous fruity tartness, but it is well-balanced with the other flavors.

"Had a one year old bottle for my first Jackie Os beer, and damn, was it impressive. HUGE body, almost chewy...just the way I like em. Flavor and aroma aggressively hopped (still) with a ton of roasted malt and walnuts, and a background of coffee and chocolate. Smooth finish. I like the fairly unique twist on a classic impy w/the nuttiness. Id LOVE to try the barreled version of this and might just start being more aggressive in my searching out of Jackie Os."

Draft at Jackie Os. Pours dark brown with a medium sized thick beige head. The aroma is big roasted malts, noticeable black walnuts, chocolate, dark candi sugar and a touch of char. The flavor is more big roasted malts, chocolate, char, dark sugar and caramel. The black walnuts add a special component to the beer. The mouthfeel is another aspect that, for me, makes this a standout beer. Thick and creamy, this begs to be poured into a snifter and slowly sipped on cooler fall and winter evenings. This has not failed to satisfy, whether it is from a bottle or on draft.

22. Sweet. Pours jet black with ruby edges and no head lace or legs. Huuuuge burnt toast nose with tons of coffee and chocolate. Sticky thick body. Ash, coffee, roast, and prunes on the midpalate. Long dry roasty finish.

Bomber to oversized snifter (shared with the Mrs.; thanks for muling this for me, DrSilverworm!). Batch 13, bottle #229/276. Looks good; pitch black and viscous with foamy mocha head that dissipates into lacing. Smells and tastes good too; chocolate malt with a nice presence of both the walnuts and the dark Belgian candi sugar. Nice on the palate; rich and smooth. This is great beer.
