4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Brad brought this to my tasting on May 29, 2010. A huge thank you for sharing this great beer.
Czar Jack has a stunning appearance. The beer is jet black with a substantial, thick beige head that leaves copious amounts of lacing on the glass. Aromas consist of a big whiskey presence, roasted malt, and subtle oak notes. This beer tastes incredible. The flavors are integrated and balanced very well. The Jack Daniels flavor is bold and forward, yet not offensive or overdone. This is a truly well-crafted brew. The feel is creamy and smooth with a warming note in the finish. I highly recommend this beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from trade poured a dark chestnut color with a thick covering of mocha head. Aroma has some sourness, dark malts, roast, and some barrel wood. Mouth feel is thin for the style and there is plenty of carbonation. Flavor unfortunately confirms the nose with sour tartness, cherry, dark roasted malt, and some heat. This bottle is definitely infected:(
