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!

Dark red black brown opaque with an off white good head, Aroma is malt and fruit with a taste of caramel and coffee gotta be honest though getting a bit hammered from all the other beers I’ve been testing, Good but not as good as the others. Thin mouth feel.

pours a dark burguny with minimal head an dno lacing. Aroma of fig, raisin, toffee and heavy malt. flavor is much the same. Slightly metallic. Average.

bottle @ Belmont Party Supply / Dayton OH --- Aroma of malt. Opaque brown / black color, beige head that drops to a cover, waves of lace. Taste is full-bodied lightly roasted malt that grows into medium fizz and noticeable unbiased hops and alcohol warmth. Strong, a little overwhelming, which fits the power, but not the lack of complexity here. I’m having this with dinner, but it would probably be better as a stand-alone.

Draft. I did not enjoy this one as much as expected, primarily because the alcohol permeated through which overwhelmed. I was surprised because this is not that strong in %.

Of course this shit fucking gushed when I opened it. A chocolate, raisin aroma, kind of like a dubbel. Aroma is insanely sweet and then dirty. Kind of a nutty, brown sugar taste. Pretty weird. Im trying really hard to choke this down.

Bottle shared with koleminer20 out of Dumpster Day box #1. Aroma is caramel, toffee, sugar, metallic, the metal is pretty overwhelming. Appearance is dark brown, light tan head, poured thin. Taste is metallic, lots of that, followed with caramel, toffee, malt. Mouthfeel is medium body and light carbonation, with a very metallic aftertaste. Overall, if this wasn’t so metallic it wouldn’t be half bad.

12 oz bottle shared with ebone1988. This one is from Dumpster Box No. 1. The pour is a dark dark brown with lots of ruby shining through and a huge dense head that falls down to a thicker cap. The aroma is not good. There is a ton of metallic bullshit happening. There is a light roasted malt and a really sweet metallic finish. This is going to be bad. Ugh. Here we go. The flavor is dominated by metallic. There is a decent dark fruit and a light roast. The sweetness goes away in lieu of a slight bitterness but the metallic is really dominating here. The mouth feel is just bad. It's got a sharp carbonation to go with a decently thicker feel. The carbonation makes it feel like I'm drinking a soda. The finish is metallic and sweet with a little caramel present as well. This is just another fail from Arbor. Damnit. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
