An American styled stout made with copious amounts of flaked oats, semi sweet chocolate bars, and lactose sugar. The chocolate bars were tempered with hot wort over the kettle utilizing the steam from the boil. Additions of the tempered chocolate were frequent throughout the entire boil.

Thanks to Josh for sharing this growler. Pours a deeper brown with little to no head (although was from a growler that was traded). Aroma of lactose, chocolate, tobacco and nuts. Flavor of roasted malt, smoke, chocolate and lactose.

Dark brown mahogany color with a small, tan head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted malts, cocoa, lactose, toast, and smoked wood. Taste of dark cherries, lactose, roasted malts, dark chocolate, and a semi-sweet finish.

Growler
Maybe this lost a bit of its luster overnight but by the time Chris opened it to kick off a winter tasting it was still holding up very well. If it is a reflection of what Jackie O’s can do with other styles I think I may have to detour out of my way sometime and find out what the hype is all about. If only Athens were closer to civilization I might have already gone.

Aroma / Appearance - Flat (as expected) the deep brown body still showed signs of life. Rather than limply swirling it clung to the sides of my sampler glass. The rich chocolate and malt reminded me of a malt ball that had melted a bit in the sunlight.

Flavor / Palate - Straight up chocolate is not my thing so the fact that this was dominated by that flavor profile did it no favors. However it did not overdo the effect and soon I was warming up to a decent stout. Paired with the right dessert this would be the perfect thing to wrap up an evening.

Growler shared at a tasting. Pours black with a thin tan head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is sweet chocolate with some nice dark roast to balance it out. Medium light creamy mouthfeel. Flavor is smooth chocolate that has a hint a sweetness that is done really well. Its not cloyingly sweet at all. And its balanced with the right amount of roast. This is an outstanding brew. Thanks Brad!
