Bottle shared by Brad and Art, thanks! Poured black with a brown head that dissipated to the edges. Aroma was full of sweet darker grains with some coffee, slight roast and dark chocolate. Flavor had sweet dark grains to a bitter chocolate and coffee finish.

Bottle… This beer rocks!… Pours British Petroleum black with no head, but a dark film drips down the inside of my glass - nice legs. The nose is a rich blend of caramel, oak, chocolate and vanilla. Full-bodied and chewy with tingly carbonation. The flavor is tangy, liquor-hot and modestly sweet. Finishes tangy, sweet and warming. Thanks to darkguardian for sharing this rarity!

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.

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.

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.

Another Jackie-Os beauty courtesy of markwise. Thanks! Mark. Pours super dark with red edges and mocha head. It puts up a huge aroma of vanilla, fudge brownie and bourbon/whiskey booze with modest spiciness revealed upon a deep draw. The taste is rich yummy chocolate brownie, rich vanilla and some smooth sweet whiskey that runs a touch to the harsh side. By about midway a mild note of spiciness comes to the surface in a feeble attempt to be heard over these rich yummy notes. It dries out some into the finish with dark roasted malts as well as wood and then leaving lingering notes of vanilla and fudge brownie heading into the after taste.

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!
