deyholla (6954) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - DEC 4, 2010
Sampled from the tap at the brewery during the 5th anniversary party. (Listed as ’Sparkbock’ on brewery list, typo?) Poured a hazy amber red with a near white head that dissipated slowly to the edges and laced slightly. Aroma had notes of sweet earthy grains with a bit of oak and biscuit. Flavor was sweeter with biscuit and sweet grains coming through with a dry oak finish.

Dogbrick (8658) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUL 16, 2010
UPDATED: JUL 20, 2010 Sample at Jackie O’s as part of Ohio Brew Week. This brew is a clear reddish-amber color with a medium off-white head that recedes steadily. Thin rings of lacing. Caramel malt aroma with some dark fruity notes. Medium body with a strong malt base and flavors of caramel, dark fruit and chocolate. The finish is malty with a slight booze and fig character and a sweet finish. Above average overall.

bgburdman9 (858) - Kettering, Ohio, USA - JUL 21, 2008
Had this one on tap during brew week. I thought this one was pretty solid. It was pretty easy to drink and had a solid malty, caramel, and light roastiness to it. Solid beer.

dkoonce (911) - People’s Republic of Athens, Ohio, USA - AUG 5, 2007
On tap, at the pub. Dark, with a thin tan head. Very malty aroma, with caramel and toffee. Medium body and a bit sweet. Lots of caramel in there as well. Finishes well. A fitting tribute to Jon.
