Erie Better Beer
Here is another installment from Mark Pyle and the boys at the Erie Better Beer Bureau. Check out their review of Jackie O’s Bourbon Barrel Black Maple. Remember it’s a porter, not a stout!
Aroma – Roasty, Maple Syrup, Vanilla, Oak, Chocolate, Sweet, not a whole lot of bourbon
Taste – Maple Syrup, ton of Oak, kind of thin. Low carbonation, more bourbon, oak, roastiness balance
Blind scores: 4.25, 4.0. Needs more body, good flavor
