Growler. Pours a black body with a tan head. Dark and roast y aroma dark chocolate tones and coffee esk notes that dont follow through at at all. A much softer and sweeter palate then suggested by the aromatic character. A creamy more lactose, hints of oats, and a nuttier body. A nice sweet stout.

kramer (5064) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 13, 2010
Growler, RBWG 2010. Pours a flat black body with a minimal wispy light brown head. Rich chocolaty nose with some roast, light lactose, and some minimal hops. The flavor is full on rich milk chocolate with a roasty sweet finish. Its like drinking a chocolate bar. Medium bodied, a little sticky, with soft carbonation. Very nice Sweet 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 by Kan at Stoutfest 2012. Thanks! Pours a rich blackish opaque hue, inky and thick, rich and dark. A frothy darker brown head sits atop, laces ok. Aromas are sweeter overall. Offering cocoa, roast, toast. Gentle caramel, coconut, and toffee. Touches of spice. A bit more tame than anticipated. Initial is fuller bodied offering vanilla and cocoa, touches of toffee, vanilla, and cocoa. Rich flavors mix with coconut, toffee, and cocoa. Touches of dark fruit. Middle offers less thickness, more drinkability, with vanilla, spice, and life. Mellow sweetness pervades. Finish is mellow dry citrus, touches of bitterness, spice, and sweet deep malts. Nice but lacking oomph. Silky sweet palate works well here.

Tmoney99 (10965) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 2, 2012
Tap sample. Poured a black color with a large frothy brown head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy dark chocolate malt, toasted oats and milk sugar aroma. Medium to heavy dark chocolate flavor with a medium to heavy sweet candy finish of moderate to long duration. Full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. This is a good rich beer.

Dogbrick (8507) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 20, 2013
Sample at the brewpub. Brownish-black pour with a medium creamy beige head that diminishes slowly. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Sweet chocolate and malt in the nose. Medium-bodied with flavors of chocolate syrup, roast malt and mild coffee in the background. The finish is sweet with a chocolate malt aftertaste. Above average overall.

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.

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.

Brown pour. Tan head. Chocolate, lactose, roasted nuts, burned sugar and some roast in the aroma. Flavor is lactose sweet, chocolate, roast, toffee, and lightly woody. Even a touch of smoke. Nice and unique!
