COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The hauntingly good brew in your hand is rife with dark complexities. Seven malts were used to create deep flavors of coffee, chocolate, caramel, and molasses. A hint of bitterness and herbal character from carefully selected European and American hops help support the monolithic maltiness.

This special batch was aged for 8 months in bourbon barrels and then transferred into port barrels where it rested for another 6 months. Deep notes of burnt caramel, dark sweet cherries, vanilla, and dark chocolate. A truly decadent brew that is intended to be poured into your favorite snifter and given time to warm up from its cool dark resting place.

375 ml bottle to snifter (thanks alexsdad06). Looks good; an opaque jet black with fine fizzy darker beige head that slowly but steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells and tastes rich and robust with notes of dark chocolate, oak, vanilla, cherry, and a bit of port on the back end. Pleasantly warming. Mouthfeel is great! Full-bodied, viscous, and with a nice vinous port presence that's pleasant on the tongue. Excellent.

Dogbrick (14009) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - SEP 14, 2017
Sample at the brewpub during the "Jackie O's Uptown Bottle Release" on 08/11/2017. Opaque brown-black color with a medium tan head that diminishes steadily to an outer ring. Small patches of lacing on the glass. The aroma consists of bourbon, roasted malt, coffee and chocolate. Full-bodied with flavors of oaky bourbon, fudge, charred malt, vanilla and dark fruit. The finish is oaky with a bourbon and chocolate malt aftertaste. Very good beer all around.

phaleslu (10750) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 14, 2017
375 ml bottle via trade. Pours an opaque, deep, dark brown with a small dark tan head that settles into a ring, leaving a few spots of lace behind. Notes of vanilla, molasses, brown sugar, dark chocolate, fudge, oak, bourbon, port, roasted malts, dried and dark fruits, and candied nuts. The aroma favors the bourbon barrel and sweeter notes while the flavor ends with a big rush of port wine and vinous notes. Medium-bodied, with low to moderate carbonation and a sweet, rich, vinous mouthfeel. Massive aroma. Decadent.

Sampled at the Grand Tasting at RBSG. In my tasting glass was black with a tan head. Nose is dark rich roasted chocolate malts, dark ripe fruit and bourbon. Very full bodied with a thick creamy mouthfeel. The flavor is very rich with chocolate and vanilla and all the wood and bourbon makes this decadent. Fabulous.
