Bottle during the RBWG Lobby Share. Pours a clear brown with small beige head that diminishes to nothing. The aroma is licorice and wood. Medium mouth with dark chocolate, rich malt, light booze, lingering dryness, very good.

On tap at the Jackie Os 5th Anniversary party. Pours motor-oil black with a pretty good head and a nice bit of light lacing. The aroma blew me away right from the start. There was some really nice roasted nut character along with some nice dark chocolate. There were nice notes of espresso and dark fruit underneath with just a touch of booze. The flavor is equally as nice and quite complex. I was a bit fan of how everything came together and it had a nice kick in the end. Chocolate, dark fruits, and espresso danced and were further highlighted by a beautifully-thick mouthfeel. Just a hint of warmth in the finish. This was my favorite of the Jackie Os brews and Im looking forward to hopefully trying this again. Serving type: on-tap Reviewed on: 12-07-2010
