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.

2010 Bottle No. 207. Shared at the Nashville Beer Summit. Flat and pitch black. Very sweet flavor, dark chocolate and slight raspberry, Belgian in its pruneyness, almost like a Quad.

A-pours a jet black liquid with a tiny bit of deep brown head. S-the nose is light and has some light mik chocolate, notes of oatmeal and some soapy hops in the back. T-the taste is more bitter, the oatmeal and milk chocolate are still there but bitter burnt coffee ridns come in behind as the soapy hop flavors come by themself in the finish. M-good full body with a thick and creamy feel. the finish is nicely carbonated and semi dry. D-this is reasonably nicebut the hop presence seems out of place and slightly off. Still, the smooth oatmea stout body and weight make it drink smooth and easy.

At the Public House on draft. The deep brown, nearly black pour also had a mild tan head that lasted. Aroma is BIG cocoa nibs and dark chocolate with a hint of sweet milks and roasted malts. The taste is obviously big dark and milk chocolates. The sweet milks and maltball come through at the end with slight roastyness. Medium body, medium light carb. Really damn good.

Growler at RBWG. Pours a deep, dark mahogany color and topped by a small head of tan colored foam that recedes quickly to a thin film. The aroma is rich and filled with several varieties of chocolate from sweet milk chocolate to some darkly roasted chocolate. Some earthy hops lend some bitterness which oats lend a nice smoothness. The flavor follows suit with the sweet milk chocolate, roast, and lactic sugars. Medium bodied with subtle carbonation that leads to a sweet chocolate finish. This is an easy drinking chocolate milk stout.

Sampled at Nashville Beer Summit 1.22.11 - Probably my least favorite Jackie-Os beer thus far, but its still damn good. An excellent sweet stout. This beer has nothing to be ashamed of. Dry cocoa powder notes. Lush and delicious. Milky and creamy. Milk and dark chocolate. Yum. Jackie-Os keeps rockn it.

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!

Big thanks to Deuane for bringing me this growler back from a recent trip to the brewery. Thanks again buddy! Growler poured into a duvel tulip.

A - Pours pitch black with a nice half finger tall dark tan head leaving very light lacing down the glass.

S - Tons of sweet chocolate and dark roasted malts mix well with a bit of lactose sweetness and the faintest hint of booze to create the core of this beer. More and more chocolate comes thru as it begins to come to room temp.

T - Plenty of chocolaty sweetness mixes well with the dark roasted malts, ground coffee, and lactose sweetness. Finish has plenty of sweetness throughout but it gets a bit hot as it warms up. Pretty good stout but nothing too mind blowing. I am looking forward to trying some of the other offerings from Jackie Os.

M - Heavy body and flavor with moderate carbonation. A bit thin but no big deal there. Finish has plenty of dark roast and strong chocolaty sweetness.

D - Pretty good. Based on the fact that I drank nearly half the growler myself I must have enjoyed some part of this one. The balance was good but it was just a bit too sweet. Still pretty good tho.

This is my kind of stout. 32oz growler thanks to George. Pours an almost black with a small beige head. Nose is lots of roast chocolate, creamy caramel and oatmeal. Flavor is big on mouthfeel with a extremely creamy chocolate character up front. Chewy caramel malt center finishes with a slightly roasted mocha finish. This is a really good milk stout.

On tap at Jackie Os VBRBDAKLDAQUINCE release. A- Like Spider889 said, I cant score this any higher than a3 for appearance. It looked exactly like the other stouts that I had on tap that day. A very thin head that skims away with some spots lets behind here and there. Deep black body that has some viscosity to it. S- Very chocolatey on the nose. Ive begun to notice that when beers get really, really chocolatey they begin to smell like tootsie rolls. Now obviously there arent Tootsie Rolls in this beer, I think, but the gobs of sweet chocolate give this a candy like aroma. Thankfully there are some stout-like qualities in the way of roasted malts and caramel. But the caramel only serves to candy-up this beer more. T- YEEESH! I had the BA version on tap, and have been kicking myself for missing that bottle release ever since. The BB Sweet Chocolate Love is one of JOs best. The regular version, however, not my cup of chocolate. And thats really what it is. Chocolate. The word cloying gets used often on this site, too often actually so I try to avoid using it. In this case there really isnt any other word. I love sweet chocolate as much an anyone (ST Choclat is great) but there is something about how the chocolate presents itself here that is really off putting. I mentioned Tootsie Rolls when describing the aroma, well its tenfold in the taste. M- The feel is smooth but much too thin on the body. The beer looked like it was going to have a decent weight to the body but it was deceptive. D- I know this is the common air of BA but the barrel aged version is much better.
