Perfect example of a big bourbon barrel stout. Pours pitch black. Lots of bourbon on the nose with a bit of chocolate and coffee. Taste is lots of bouron with some chocolate and coffee and caramel. Great bb aged stout. daknole (11048) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - SEP 7, 2009
Growler shared by JW77. This is my kind of beer!! Almost a black pour. Small tan head. Sweet bourbon and chocolate heaven erupt from the glass. Some light roast notes as well. Flavor is just full and rich...tons of bourbon, brown sugar, chocolate, vanilla, oak, caramel and some fruity notes. Damn this is good. jtclockwork (17654) - , New Jersey, USA - OCT 22, 2010
UPDATED: OCT 23, 2010 Bottle 124 of 384 thanks to the Bald Wizard. Epic stout. Black with tan head. Nose of chocolate, walnut, raisin, bourbon and vanilla coffee. Taste of vanilla, chocolate, bourbon, coffee, white chocolate, prune, raisin and caramel malts. HonusWagner (2250) - Florida, USA - JAN 18, 2011
I retract anything negative I have ever uttered about Jackie O’s. Holy moly. Thanks to whoever shared this at Sea Bass.
This is a beer that really benefits from the barrels. Nose is slightly oaky, coconut/vanilla, soft whiskey sweetness, cocoa, coffee beans. Taste follows closely, bits of warming bourbon in the front blending nicely with rich sweetness, but avoids being syrupy and has great flavorful balance. Not a very hoppy stout, and not much fruitiness, but an extremely good beer.
