SF Beer Week – Jack ‘n’ Jolly (Drake’s)

10% ABV
Purchased at The Page in San Francisco ($4/pint) and poured into pint glasses.

His Notes:

Jack ‘n’ Jolly is a blend of previous versions of Drake’s Jolly Rodger series aged in Jack Daniel’s bourbon barrels.  It pours redwood brown with a minimal sandy head, and offers a very inviting aroma of whiskey, wood, and tropical fruits.  The bourbon character comes through stronger with this brown/red ale than with a barrel-aged stout, with the alcohol burn softened into the coconut flavor of rum.  Once again, Drake’s has brewed a masterpiece with a long-term impression on the palette and a  mesmerizing mix of tastes – all in one swallow, it’s bitter, woody, fruity, roasted, toasted, and sweet.
