COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Jackhammer is a very dark brown ale with a nice reddish hue. Offering a welcome warming sensation, it has a rich malty sweetness. Fruity esters, expected in this style beer, add to the already complex palate and help to provide an immensely satisfying experience!

Very black, no head. Rich chocolate, dried fruit, gingerbread and spice on the nose. Strong palate, a little hot, with hot cocoa, cream and baking spice flavors. Tasty. Definitely a winter warmer.

Bottle picked up at Tiffanys in Kalamazoo. Pours a dark brown with ruby highlights on the edges, about a finger of khaki head, nice lines of lace. Nose is sweet caramel and dark fruits. Tastes sweet, a little bit of boozy bite, softness in the mouth, vanilla too. Decent.

Pours a dark brown with large light brown head. Nose is molasses, dough, earthy coffee. Medium body, slight sweetness to start with flavors of molasses, toffee, burnt malt gives slight hint of bitterness. Creamy and slightly oily with long finish. Decent beer, fairly balanced.

Wow. This is a hell of a beer, beautiful in the glass and kaleidoscopic in flavour as it allows you to experience a rich and spicy shock of alcohol, a rise of berry-and-chocolate in the malt, and a scant dry breath of hops at close. Only the alt is better in the ABC portfolio.

On tap at brewery. Deep red pour. Didnt get the advertised "chocolate covered cherry," but did get elements of tart booze as it warmed.
