Tmoney99 (13606) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 24, 2013
Tap sample Nitro. Poured clear reddish brown with a large creamy off-white head that lasted and produced excellent lacing. Moderate toasted sweet malt and soft wood aroma. Medium to abundant body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy complex sweet flavor with the same sweet finish of moderate duration. This beer would go well with spicy food or a cigar from this area.

Dogbrick (11610) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 13, 2013
Sample on nitro at the tap room. The beer pours a reddish-amber color with a medium creamy off-white head that recedes slowly. Small patches of lacing. Aroma of malt, oak and vanilla. Light-bodied with flavors of oaky vanilla, caramel malt and a touch of peat. The finish is malty with a slight citrus and vanilla aftertaste. Decent overall.

hopscotch (10645) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - FEB 1, 2014
UPDATED: MAY 13, 2014 Nitro... This beer rocks!... Pours clear and copper with a large, creamy, white head that lasts until I’ve emptied the glass. The aroma is reminiscent of cream soda that is vanilla-heavy with a toasted oak bonus. Medium to full-bodied and super creamy with pillow-soft carbonation. Big malt flavor, but not at all cloying. Modest vanilla and caramel sweetness. Finishes off nourishing and bittersweet. Well executed world class beer!. If diggin’ malt-forward beers is wrong, I don’t wanna be right.

Nitro @ CCB, cheers Joe for the glass. Ambrée, col blanc-cassé. Arôme de vanille laissant un bouquet assez doux et plaisant, rétro moyen de malt pâle, caramel. Palais est doux gardant ce côté vanillé sans être surfait, léger caramel, Vienna? petite rondeur douce sur la fin tout en restant très léger en bouche. Amertume est plus en retrait. Je ne note cependant pas le côté boisé du chêne.
