On draft pours a dark brown with a tan thick head. Aroma is rich malt and clean yeast. Flavor is deep and rich with malt character. This is an exceptional beer. Thorpe429 (5035) - , Illinois, USA - APR 21, 2011
"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

UPDATED: JUL 20, 2010 Sample at Jackie O’s 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. sliffy (2040) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 4, 2009

Had this one on tap during brew week. I thought this one was pretty solid. It was pretty easy to drink and had a solid malty, caramel, and light roastiness to it. Solid beer. JStax (6364) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - DEC 4, 2010
