Jackie O’s Bourbon Barrel Aged Oro Negro is a Stout brewed with walnuts, conditioned on spices & aged in bourbon barrels.

Final Rating: 4.37/5
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Poured from a 500mL bottle into a Jackie O’s snifter.

Pours a deep brown body with a one finger light brown head that reduces fairly quickly to leave no lacing or retention.

Aromas are big and potent, lots of vanilla, chocolate, a bit of booziness and nuttyness, cinnamon and whiskey.

On the tongue is milky chocolate, hot cocoa, bourbon, spices, a distinct spicyness that sticks on the tongue for a while, vanilla-whiskey, roasty coffee on the finish, sweet throughout. Medium body with low carbonation, syrupy but not thick.

Overall an interesting beer, the walnut adds a unique character that I can’t quite put my finger on.
