phaleslu (6843) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 24, 2014
Draft at Jackie-Os on the Public House side. Pours a hazy amber with a small khaki head. Notes of dark fruits, candi sugar, caramel, maple, sweet bread, mild spice, and earth. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a sweet, fruity, rich mouthfeel. Even if blindfolded, I think I wouldve guessed this was an American take on a Belgian dubbel. And its a good one.

Moving towards the imperial stouts I used this as a transition on my sampler flight at Jackie Os. An interesting attempt at the style works in many ways. There are a few things that could be tweaked but overall this is a diamond in the rough.

Aroma / Appearance - Reddish black liquid swirls easily around the small sample sized glass. Sheer sticky legs betray the ABV immediately. The nose though is very nuanced with a mix of black malt, cherries, red vines, chocolate, and yeast. Put together it is an American take on the Belgian style.

Flavor / Palate - Chocolate and molasses are immediately evident. Next comes yeast and dry malts. The finish does give away the maple syrup although it is not quite like a harvest ale or other beers that have used it. In fact as time goes it begins to open up. This might have been a middle of the road draft for the bottle sale but at other times this might be towards the cream of the crop.

BeerandBlues2 (10133) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - DEC 13, 2013
Tap at the brewery. Pours clear brown with a medium, frothy beige head, medium retention with good lacing. Aroma is toast, cookie, and caramel malt, dates and figs with light earthy hops, and cooked bananas. Flavor is sweet cookie and caramel malt, light hops and bitterness, candied dark fruits and a sweet finish. Full body and medium carbonation.

alexsdad06 (5927) - Ohio, USA - JUN 1, 2013
Draft in 2011. Pours a hazy brown color with a medium sized creamy beige head. The aroma is Belgian inspired, caramel, maple, moderately sweet with a touch of yeast. The flavor has more caramel, maple sweetness, Belgian yeast but finishes soft. Decent.

Sheerbrewing (117) - Athens-Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 21, 2012
On tap at the pub side. Pours a hazy deep amber with thin tan head. Aroma is Belgian yeast character and some roasty malt and slight bit of hop. Flavor is definitely Belgian and has a nice round malt character with roastiness and some dark fruit there is some spiciness on the back end. Overall this is a pretty standard Belgian dubbel nice yeast character and a well balanced malt and a smooth yet bubbly mouthfeel.

DrSilverworm (6983) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 7, 2012
On tap at Jackie-Os, served in a goblet. Opaque dark red / brown color. Some off-white head leaving some lace. Good, light crisp carbonation, a nice dry texture. Nice, sweet maple twist to the typical belgian. Good sharp sweetness, light bitter. Taylor got a strong clove aroma from this that turned her off from it (didnt bother me, though).

DavoleBomb (1467) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 28, 2011
Had this the night before the June 25th release. Received in a snifter. 3.5 A: Deep amber/light brown color. Came filled to the top with no head. 3.5 S: Overload of the JOs character. I like the JOs house taste, but this might be a bit much. Woody, with an almost astringent booziness. Lightly vegetal with a nutty brown malt component. Light spiciness with clove running the show. Light prune and tobacco flavors. 3.0 T: A bit weak on flavor. Nutty, tobacco, plum and prune, with a clove spiciness. Not as boozy as the nose. 2.5 M: Lighter medium body. A bit undercarbonated and the carbonation itself is dead (far from spritzy). 3.0 D: Not a big fan of this one. Serving type: on-tap Reviewed on: 06-27-2011 17:58:27

Jackie os dubbel... Pours a slightly hazy caramel fig brown and topped with a thin creamy off-white... Dark fruit and yeasty flavored, semi-sweet. Thicker full bodied, semi-sweet but relinquishes towards. Aromas stand for the same. 7/3/7/3/13
