CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JAN 14, 2012
Bottle thanks to Puddintane: pours an oily opaque black with a small creamy beige head. Has a sweet dark caramel and chocolate nose with a touch of espresso and raisins. Starts with good fullness and chewy dark malty sweetness with some rum raisin and nutty complexity before a drier roasted and creamy finish that hides the alcohol well. Has a faint hint of vinous fruity tartness, but it is well-balanced with the other flavors.

TheAlum (7041) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - APR 26, 2010
Shared by sliffy. Thanks! Pours a very thick viscous black, clings heavily, like oil. Opaque, small dark brown head that sticks around. Aromas are cocoa and dark chocolate, roasted malts and a faint smokiness, a bit simple. Initial is roasty whole coffee beans, cocoa, a great coffee and roasted malt body, dark and ominous, cocoa and a faint smokiness, good floral hopping sticks beneath, really clings to the palate with a great roasted feel, but nothing acrid of fierce, just waves of roast and hop clinging on. Finish is roasty, coffee, bitter, a mellow sweetness underneath, faintly Belgian brown sugar-esque and a light nuttiness. A big beer.

Sampled at dld eve. Black. Fruoty aroma. Cherries? A thinner feel. Nuts are really ligjt. Nthis is so unlike a big stout. So much more fruit. Really good and so different.

BBB63 (6557) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - DEC 6, 2010
Bottle 155/192 acquired in trade from John (fiver29) THANKS! Shared with Shawn and friends at our little tasting: Pitch black pour with an oily appearance, minimal head and very little lace. The aroma has notes of molasses, fig, walnuts, roasted and toasted malts, some char and smoke, D2 Belgian Candi Sugar, earthy, minerally, tobacco and slightly vinous esters. The taste starts with twangy dark fruits, rich sweet malts, some burnt sugar/cotton candy and a consistent nutty tone. Found some smoked wood and coffee notes as well. Strangely I identify the flavor profile more akin to a Baltic Porter than an Imperial Stout, but than is just me. The mouth feel is smooth and dangerously drinkable. Alcohol is almost completely hidden but the body could be a touch creamier and less oily. This is very nice and one of the better Jackie Os brews I have had so far.

Pailhead (6490) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - FEB 4, 2015
Bottle: The aroma consists of moderate-heavy molasses, moderate chocolate, light caramel, nuts (though Im not sure I can really pinpoint them as walnuts), vanilla, and faint roast. It pours a dark brown with no transparency and a one finger tan head that eventually settles to a thick film outlined by a thicker ring. There is a decent amount of thick webbing left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with moderate-heavy molasses and just a tad bit lighter chocolate. There is also some light caramel in the middle. The finish has light nuttiness, roast, vanilla, and dark fruits/plum. Its medium-full bodied with light-moderate carbonation. Overall, its good, but Im realizing that Im generally liking molasses heavy Imperial Stouts less and less.
