It's good. It is from a batch that follows the exact original recipe just scaled up for 5 gallons. Good enough for the likes of me. Time does it a lot of good its losing that orange cough medicine taste. Its very sweet. I think everyone should make it at least once!

I think I still have one bottle from my very first batch of JAO in 2006, I sitll haven't decided when I will actually drink it :) Maybe we'll see how it is at ten years old.

Bottling my first (and probably only) JAO this weekend. It's about 8 months old. The flavor is dominated by cloves... which I'm not too fond of. Other than that it tastes decent. Hopefully some more aging will help it out.

Well Caffeine, if you like it other than the cloves, just use less next time, or go without... sorry I can't tell you exactly what the effect of aging is on the clove flavour, with the exception of that one bottle, it never sticks around long enough! :)
