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!

Pitcher pour at Arbor tasting event. Ruby red color. No head, no lacing. Nice musty old leather smells, somewhat sweet in aroma. Nice hopping balances malt bill well. Alcohol is barely perceptible. Good!

MiBG Fest 2005:

Reddish hazy hue with a small tan head. The aroma is malty with notes of maple, caramel, strawberry, herbal hops, and a bit oxidized. The taste starts salty and musty. Caramelized malt supports the twangy apple and cider character, light bitterness as well. A bit of non-aromatic pipe tobacco and a pinch of salt in the finish. The feel is sticky and full with a biting finish. Overall it is a nice beer but lacks a completeness and enjoyment factor I want in my English Olde Ales.

12 oz bottle: Aroma is big on nice caramel malt, sweet, candy, and lightly fruity on the back end. Appearance is a cloudy amber/red with a really thick off white head that lingers forever. Taste has a really caramel flavor with roasted malts, lightly fruity with light citrus notes, bready and a some hop texture. Palate is sweet on the lips, and an aftertaste of roasted caramel malts. Overall, It’s a decent Old Ale a little understated in my honest opinion. Cheers!!

deyholla (10709) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 22, 2011
Sampled from the tap at corner brewery. Poured a deep hazy amber with a white head that dissipates slowly to the edges. Aroma has notes of sweet grains with underlying notes of light fruit and a hint of caramel. Flavor starts with sweet grains and light fruits, but finishes with caramel and a bit of booze.

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.
