UPDATED: JUL 20, 2010 Sample at Jackie Os 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.

deyholla (9912) - 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.

Sample on tap at the brewpub. Dark brown red color, good light tan head, excellent, even lace. Lighter smooth carbonation. Dry finish, good long light bittersweet aftertaste. Interesting brew. Lots of lace. Rich chocolate nutty aroma, that has a weird kind of acidic bite. Bit spicy. Might be better enjoyed during the spring time, and instead of this blistering hot summer day

phaleslu (9251) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 18, 2013
Draft in a sampler on the Public House side. Pours a deep, hazy amber with a small but lasting beige head. Notes of brown sugar, pecan, caramel, dry cereal malts, mellow spices, and dates. The notes pop a bit more in the nose than in the flavor. Medium-bodied, with a dry, malty mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Good bock.

"Malty strong ale aged on oak chips." Pours a moderate reddish-brown color with a good tan head and a slight amount of lacing on the way down. The nose brings forward some subtle oak character and sweet malted plus some mild fruits. Caramel and bread there as well. The taste is quite bready with some caramel sweetness and a nice touch of oak in the background. Good full body with a bit of oak tannin that helps round out the brew. Nice and drinkable. Love how there are so many new offerings each time I stop by. Serving type: on-tap Reviewed on: 01-05-2011
