We love to experiment here at Jackie Os. Many of our special release beers are aged in various barrels, go through a secondary wild fermentation, utilize locally harvested products, and/or highlight interesting flavor combinations. As Quincedence would have it, each of the attributes above makes this beer a truly unique creation. The beer began as our Scottish ale. A deep caramel flavored brew accompanied by hint smoke, from a touch peated malt. This beer was then placed in a freshly emptied Cabernet Barrel from Kinkead Winery in Ripley Ohio. After months of aging, this beer had taken on some pronounced vinous notes and the tannins from the barrel were lending a nice dry finish to the beer. Inspired by the developing character, I gave the barrel a dose of Brettanomyces Bruxellensis (wild yeast). The wild yeast further accentuated the fruity vinous flavors and gave the dry finish a bit of a boost. Months after the wild yeast had made its home inside of the barrel; I came across some Quince fruit at our local farmers market. I found the fruits distinct apple/pear character intriguing and purchased 20lbs to add to a barrel in our cellar. Ultimately, the cabernet barrel filled with Scottish and wild yeast made the most since. The juxtaposition of tart (from the cabernet qualities and the wild yeast) and sweet (from the caramel flavor of the beer and the vanilla from the oak) mimicked the quince its self. The fruit was gently rinsed to keep the local wild yeast from the orchard intact, and then placed into the barrel. 2 months after the fruit was added, we bottled Quincedence. This beer will continue to develop in the bottle for years to come if stored it in a dark cool place.

brokensail (16342) - Dublin, California, USA - JUN 28, 2011
A: The pour is a dark brown color with a tall off-white head. S: Really a weird nose. Pretty heavy on the malts, especially toffee and toast. There is a mild tartness to it (quince?), and some light fruit notes. Quite a bit of barrel, especially char. T: The flavor isnt really any better. Roast and charred oak with some tartness and dark fruits. There is a bit of sweetness and toffee. Heavy wine flavor and tannins are really overpowering. M: Medium in body with a medium carbonation. O: This was not enjoyable. All the wrong flavors were intense/dominant.

hopscotch (10944) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUN 20, 2011
Bottle This beer rocks! Murky brown ale with a small, creamy, khaki head. Good retention. The aroma furnishes caramel, chocolate, oak and red wine more acidic than expected. Medium-bodied with lively carbonation. The flavor provides loads of caramel up front; sour cherries and yeasty bitterness on the backside. Finishes crisp, tart and quite dry. Kudos to darkguardian for sharing this world class Scotch ale treatment!

deyholla (10902) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAR 19, 2011
Bottle thanks to Brad shared with others at the post EBF tasting. Poured slightly hazy brown with an amber hue with a brown head that dissipated to the edges. Aroma was full of tart pear with sweet dark grains and a hint of caramel. Flavor had the same nice tart pear note with some underlying dry red fruits and just a bit of sweet dark grains. Really liked the pear note.
