Thought I was pouring a stout at first! Thick caramel pour with medium viscous tan head. Amazing fruit and bourbon nose. Dried fruit combo of grapes/pears/figs/dates for the flavor followed by a brown sugar tart cherry pie finish. O jackie Ooooo . . .

Sheerbrewing (117) - Athens-Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 22, 2012
Sample on pubside .. Pours a dark brown with thin tan head aroma is rich but clean Belgian and definitely some oak and bourbon. Flavor is a lot more bourbon than the aroma would suggest but there is a rich malt backbone to this that is roasty and then some Belgian yeast character and some alcohol warmth, some dark fruits plum. Overall I am really digging everything comin out of these bourbon barells and this one doesnt disappoint.

Maddog (526) - Kettering, Ohio, USA - FEB 23, 2013
Bottle purchased at the brewery in Athens. Another killer barrel aged offering from Jackie Os. The pour was dark brown with aromas of bourbon and dark fruits. Flavors of bourbon, oak, vanilla and dark fruits are woven together in this deliciously complex beer.

jandd1983 (4205) - Wentzville, Missouri, USA - AUG 5, 2013
It poured a hazy dark brown color with a brown head. The aroma was of sweet maltiness and some bourbon alcohol. It had a medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. The taste was of sweet bourbon with a nice sweet finish. A very complex brew, but nicely done.

Lukaduke (3194) - Gray, Maine, USA - MAR 31, 2013
Bottle thansk again to JSTAX ! Pours a deep umber mahogany color with a finger of eggshell foam. The nose has some great dark fruit, cherry, burnst sugar and traces of boozy bourbon and vanilla. The palate is velvety smooth with nice carbonation that draws out all the subtleties in the flavor. Nice ripe cherry cola, dank bourbon soaked wood, molasses, a touch of bitter walnut. Really easy drinker with just enough bourbon character to enhance the beer but not overpower the soft quad notes.

Dark reddish brown pour. Aromas of dark fruits, brown sugar, caramel, butter scotch. Taste was sweet with light bourbon heat. Nothing too crazy. Like dessert in a glass.
