12 oz. bottle from Brad consumed Feb 2012 (from notes). Pours dark brown to black in color with a thin beige head. Nose is dark roasted malts, dark chocolate, dark grains, vanilla and wood. The flavor is the same; dark roasted malts, barrel notes, dark chocolate, vanilla and woody. Smooth mouth feel and quite tasty. Recent bottle was noticeably flatter than my original tasted, but still tasty. Close to the bourbon.

Thanks to alexzsdad. Very strong bourbon smell. Poured with really no head whatsoever. Tastes like adult chocolate milk. Very smooth chocolate mixed extremely well the bourbon. Excellent

Opaque black with no head, light sticky lacing on the glass. Aroma of dark chocolate, roasted malts, burnt wood, smoke, vanilla, bourbon, and alcohol. Taste of dark chocolate, smoke, burnt wood, vanilla, bourbon, and alcohol in the finish.

12oz bottle from George O. Rating #14. Again a very dark black with no head. Big vanilla oak and bourbon aroma, but not overwhelming. A little thin, more vanilla and booze with no lingering aftertaste really, good stuff. (1621)

Thanks to Sean for this super rare, 20 bottle tick... pours a black with only a very small ring... a nose maybe a touch past its age, a hint of soy sauce, but then there is some nice bourbon and vanilla, light permanent marker on the finish... taste is tons of vanilla, almost shockingly so, some bourbon, a little hot... mouthfeel is too light, very watery

Very nice.

Thanks to George for this one. Pours dark brown/ black with a small whitish head. Nose is vanilla, slight chocolate, soy sauce, slight booze, and fudgy goodness. Flavor is similar with a teeny amount of soy sauce, and an insane amount of fudge and chocolate. Brad, please make lots!

LCBS 2010. Don’t know how JW77 got these, but he did! Rich dark brown pour, nice creamy head. Hershey’s chocolate bars, booze, oak, prunes, raisins, and a slightly nutty character hidden in the background. Flavor of chocolate cake, fudge, booze, oak, pure vanilla beans, some light espresso and roasted malt. Delicious.

Bouteille partagée avec Markwise qui a le don de nous offrir les meilleures bières de Jackie-O.
Donne une couleur noire dans les tons bien foncés, la mousse est de couleur moka, chocolat au lait.
Arôme donne un aspect très malt qui souligne bien l’aspect complexe des cette bière et de l’usage des 4 grains, qcq notes de bourbon se font ressentir.
Au palais, cette dernière ne prend de toute sa splendeur que à température ambiante. Je note pas mal de malt de caramel, une fine note de grain et un aspect sec qui libère un volupté de noisette (peut-être un effet des quatre grains) qui se mélange à merveille avec le bois et le bourbon. Le fini conserve une fine amertume de bois et chocolat tout en gardant un alcool réchauffant au palais. La fût de chêne offre une fine couche de vanille pour une bière qui reste assez épaisse au goûté.
J’adore, dommage que ceci soit limité à seulement 11 litres.
