Thanks to goryshkewych for the share. Pours obsidian with a small tan head. Nose is chocolate, whiskey, slight fruit, rye, wood, and slight booze. Flavor is similar with wood, chocolate, whiskey, booze, and a nice balanced chocolatey whiskey goodness. Medium bodied and another awesome Jackie O Beer.

Courtesy of markwise. Pours deep darkness void with micro thin tan head. The aroma is big boozy whiskey, chocolate fudge, smooth caramel covered oak, spicy oak and more booze. The taste is yummy fudge brownie, dark roasted malts, boozy whiskey notes, toffee and black strap molasses. Underneath those notes is a thin undercurrent of wood and what seems like a spicy oak sensation. Very pleasing confluence of flavors. 50belair (3682) - Florida, USA - AUG 17, 2010
Darkguardian breaking out with the fifth rare Jackie O’s bottle of the night. Pitch black pour with no head. The nose was big time rye whiskey. Oh boy, this bad mutha was hot. The taste was rye whiskey, with a little more rye whiskey, followed by rye whiskey. hopscotch (11236) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 17, 2010
Bottle… This beer rocks!... Black ale with a small, creamy, off-white head. The bouquet is a fantastic marriage of chocolate, spicy grains, vanilla and a pat of butter. Full-bodied with a slick mouthfeel and tickling carbonation. Sweet chocolate, tangy wood and spicy, boozy rye whiskey. Lengthy, warm, comforting finish. Thanks again to darkguardian for sharing this rarity!

Was most excited about this as I love Rye Whiskey and though it didn’t end up being my favorite it was still amazing. 12oz bottle of this rare beer thanks to George. Pours a thick sticky black with oil legs. Nose is fantastic. Huge wood, vanilla, spicy rye, and fruity dark malts. The booziness is stronger in this than the other ones but its easily forgiven because the rye spiciness just hammers you out front. Your mouth actually tingles a little bit from the spiciness. Wood dominates the middle and finish is fruity, much more so than the other 2. This is the most "different:" of the 3 and while I did dock it a bit for the booziness I found this extremely tasty and impressive. Brad did an amazing job with these treatments.
