2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark ruby brown body with a small tan head. Slight roasted malt aroma, not enough IMO. Flavor is roasted malt with bitterness provided more by the malt then the hops. Hops are very subdued. Medium light body. It seems that most of TBBC beer's have bodies that are too light, this one is no exception to the rule.

Maybe it's just because I hadn't had a beer in a while, but the glass of Jack the Quaffer that I had was one of the best I've had in a loooong time. The appearance and aroma pretty good, but once you have a sip...that's when you realize that the palate and flavor are amazing! Very carbonated, not bitter at all, very smooth and enjoyable.

Wow, this was brutally good. Some tanginess, but on the whole very well balanced. Good carbo fizz, medium body. Lots of roast, dry, good hopping.
