Growler sample from RBWG. Thanks darkguardian. Pours dark brown with an off-white head. Nose is chocolate, hops, coffee, booze, and lactose sweetness. Flavor is similar with chocolate and lactose throughout. Light to medium bodied beer that finishes with lingering chocolate. Another very enjoyable beer from Brad.

This is my kind of stout. 32oz growler thanks to George. Pours an almost black with a small beige head. Nose is lots of roast chocolate, creamy caramel and oatmeal. Flavor is big on mouthfeel with a extremely creamy chocolate character up front. Chewy caramel malt center finishes with a slightly roasted mocha finish. This is a really good milk stout.

Maybe this lost a bit of its luster overnight but by the time Chris opened it to kick off a winter tasting it was still holding up very well. If it is a reflection of what Jackie O’s can do with other styles I think I may have to detour out of my way sometime and find out what the hype is all about. If only Athens were closer to civilization I might have already gone.

Aroma / Appearance - Flat (as expected) the deep brown body still showed signs of life. Rather than limply swirling it clung to the sides of my sampler glass. The rich chocolate and malt reminded me of a malt ball that had melted a bit in the sunlight.

Flavor / Palate - Straight up chocolate is not my thing so the fact that this was dominated by that flavor profile did it no favors. However it did not overdo the effect and soon I was warming up to a decent stout. Paired with the right dessert this would be the perfect thing to wrap up an evening.
