4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
4 oz. sampler at JO’s 6th Anniversary. I made damn good review notes, but then I lost them. Bear with me on this. This is the base for Bourbon Berry Grove, which is one of my favorite JO’s brews.
4.0 A: Dark amber color. Came with just a touch of creamy beige head.
4.5 S/ 4.5 T: Wonderful nose on this! Both incredibly fruity and spicy. Fruitiness comes in the form of overripened apple, strawberry, peach, and maybe even some cherry. The honey acts to strengethen the fruitiness. Surpringly a lot of peppery spiciness in this with supplementary generic spice. It’s hard to tell whether the yeast, the bourbon, or a combo made this as spicy as it is. Bourbon adds that last layer of complexity with leather, plenty of earth, a light vanilla, and woodiness.
4.0 M: Heavier medium body. Good almost spritzy carbonation. I just wish it was a little thicker and creamier.
4.5 D: One hell of a beer. I’m always amazed how Brad manages to throw so many things together and have the result be as good as it is instead of just a huge mess.
Serving type: on-tap

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured from 22oz bottle. Pours caramel in color with a bit of beige head. Aroma is lots of honey and some rye. Taste follows the nose with lots of honey and bourbon and rye. This restores my faith in Jackie O’s...It really is a love/hate relationship. Their beers are so hit and miss. This is a hit. Tastes a lot like Nemisis 09 by Founders. Good stuff.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sample at the HSC Jackie O’s tasting on 09/24/2011: The beer is a mostly clear reddish-brown color with a medium thin off-white head that recedes steadily. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of bourbon, caramel malt and vanilla. Rich and smooth body with a boozy character and flavors of sweet malt, caramel and fruit. The finish is woody with a lingering alcohol burn. Pretty good all around.
