mcberko (14354) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 23, 2015
22 oz. bottle, pours black with a small tan head. Aroma brings out smoky whiskey barrels, some roast and alcohol. Flavour is complex as hell, with smoky whiskey barrels, some roast and more smoky whiskey. This is so well done. Perfect amount of heat, smoke and whiskey. Phenomenal.

Dogbrick (11467) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 19, 2015
Sample at the Jackie O’s Staff Bottle Tasting Part 1 on 04/11/2015. Pitch black pour with a medium thick foamy dark beige head that recedes gradually to a film. Small patches of lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted malt, bourbon and chocolate. Full-bodied with flavors of roast malt, oaky bourbon, dark chocolate and a bit of coffee. The finish is mildly boozy with a bourbon and malt aftertaste. Solid beer all around.
