RATINGS: 11   MEAN: 3.35/5.0   WEIGHTED AVG: 3.24/5   ABV: -
A foreign style stout using caramel, chocolate, roast and black malts. After fermentation we "Jack It Up." We age our stout for two months in a Jack Daniels oak cask. The final product will have a moderate Jack aroma and finish with a smooth and mild Jack flavor.

On tap at Tribeca Tavern, Raleigh. Black pour with a creamy tan head. Aroma of chocolate, roasted malt, and whiskey. Taste is a milk stout with Jack Daniels. Decent overall.

Pint at Tribeca Tavern. Good.aroma, sweet. Brown color, ok head, fa a foam cover. Sweet flavor. Medium body, smooth creamy mouthfeel, sweet finish. It’s good, not harsh barrel taste. Sweet cocoa, mixed with Jack. Gets tad dull on finish.

21-Feb-11 (12-oz sample bottle: Free bottle for stewarding the 2008 World Beer Cup in San Diego, CA) Having let this whiskey barrel-aged stout mellow a few years, this beer isn’t so much about Jack Daniels as it is about the flavor and aroma of an oak barrel. The nose offers aromas of oak, red cherry, earth, and dark chocolate. On the palate, the oak and tart cherry flavors are prominent in the entry, but these fade a bit in the finish where dark chocolate gradually overtakes the other flavors, reminding you that this is still a stout at heart. The medium-weight beer has moderate carbonation and a fair amount of acidity in the entry, but the finish is mostly just dry and surprisingly refreshing for a stout. In the glass, the beer is dark brown in color and fairly hazy in appearance and is capped with barely a wispy head that quickly dissipates. Overall, this is a very drinkable barrel-aged stout, and thankfully the flavor of Jack Daniels is kept light rather than dominating like in so many similar beers, but the base beer doesn’t seem to have much personality.

Draft at Mash House. Pours an oily black with a fat, foamy tan head. Excellent lacing. The color is spectacular, as is the darkness residing inside the glass. Aromas of whiskey creep from the glass as it’s being handed across the bar. Upon closer inspection, every scent in the nose is angrily drowned out by one of the strongest whisky profiles I’ve encountered in a barrel aged beer. It seems like the barrel still had liquor in it when it was filled. Light notes, deep underneath, of roasted malt, baking chocolate, vanilla, wood, cold and burnt coffee grounds and lactose. Alcohol is very evident. The flavor almost drops off the charts of acceptability. Notes of whisky completely dominate, imparting cloying sweetness and heavy vanilla. A light smoke addition enters the fray. Bitterness is mild to medium, though it seems like most of it comes from a grossly overstated alcohol presence. Acidity is even high; this is going nowhere fast. The finish is chocolate and whisky, medium in duration, acrid and cloying. Mouthfeel is oily, watery and scattered, light-medium bodied, unpleasant. This beer was awful, almost undrinkable.

on tap-pours a light brown head and black color. Aroma is very sweet, Jack Daniels. Taste is Jack Daniels, alcohol. Not my style.

OK, I admit it - I’m a sucker for the aroma of these bourbon barrell beers. Really nice smells of vanilla, bourbon chocolate and coffee mix to form a really enticing aroma. Flavor is similarly balanced, perhaps a bt more vanilla than bourbon. Sampled at the 2007 Hickory Hops.

On tap at the brewery. Really good sout. Nice and thick with plenty of flavor. Roasted, coffee, earthy flavors.

This is an interisting stout. The whiskey taste is most definitely noticeable and blends in fairly well.
