Triple Digit Bourbon Barrel Chickow!
Draft at fobab. The surprising unheard of gold medal. Caramel, hazelnut, chocolate. Big barrel presence. The hazelnut presence was strong and sweet, like oddside or cycle. Lots of intense flavors that were all in balance.

Triple Digit O-H!
Draft to taster at Cappy’s pour opaque black to dark brown with moderate tan head. Nose some chocolate and nut, hint of vegetal. Taste very nutty, slight bitter, then peanut aftertaste. Seem to loos the chocolate. Being an Ohio State Alum, I had higher hopes for this one.
Earlier Rating: 1/20/2016 Total Score: 3.6
Bottle pour opaque black with moderate tan head. Nose when cold seemed metallic and cardboard but as it warms big peanut butter and some milk chocolate. Taste lighter bitter like bakers chocolate, hint of banana and raisin. Then peanut butter late palate to light roasted finish.

Triple Digit Cincinnati Chili Chickow!
Draft to taster at Cappy’s pour dark cola brown with no head. Nose a little more muted than expected. Taste big chili powder. Some chocolate and cinnamon, but mostly chili powder. Definitely tastes like Cincinnati style chili, and you probably have to be from Cincy to appreciate it.

Triple Digit Cincinnati Chili Chickow!
Draft at Cappy’s for the Listermann/Triple Digit tap takeover. Pours just like every other Chickow. The aroma and flavor have taste like someone dropped a Skyline coney in my Chickow, still has the sweetness, caramel, light nutty character, but there is a big cinnamon, chili powder character to this beer, interesting but not my favorite.

Triple Digit Coconut Vanilla Chickow!
22 ounce League of Extraordinary Chickows bottle. The beer opens with a small hiss. A bit under carbonated, but enough to keep me happy. The beer is a dark brown, nearly black with a whisp of a grey head that diminishes quickly. The aroma is loaded with coconut and vanilla beans, plus that chickow goodness comes through as well. Sweet and roasty. Big body and low carbonation. Good stuff.

Triple Digit Irish Cream Chickow!
Bottle pour (thanks B!). Medium brown pour with thick creamy head. Good lacing, gorgeous head. I feel bad, I can’t give this beer its due because I can’t get past an aroma that comes across strongly as stewed raisins and prunes. I’m sure there’s more, and I expect I’ll be the lowest rating by far because it’s probably a better beer than this, but man ... can’t get past it.

Either draft or bottle (my notes suck). Dark pour with splotchy lacing. Light roast, some fruity/nuttiness; cough syrupy sweet. Really unappealing to me.

Congrats JStax! Sample at The J Bar as part of Ohio Brew Week. The beer pours dark brown with a medium tan head that diminishes steadily to a film. Partial rings of lacing. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate and pistachio. Full-bodied with flavors of roast malt, chocolate and subtle pistachio. The finish is sweet with a nutty and malty aftertaste. Good beer all around.

Triple Digit Pistachio Chickow! (JStax 5k)
Thank you to every person at Listermann and Triple Digit for the work they put in to make this beer on my behalf! Awesome guys making awesome beer! The beer itself was served on draft at Ohio Brew Week 2016. It was a clear dark brown with a khaki head of velvety foam. Strong retention. The aroma has pistachio ice cream and almond joy as the dominating characteristics. Rich chocolate, amaretto and cherries play secondary roles. Sweet and rich taste. Some roast and dryness develops toward the finish as the beer begins warming. Big body, as are all the beers in the Chickow! series. Moderate carbonation. Pretty god damn decadent. Thank you again!

Triple Digit Pumpkin Chickow!
Don’t know how I’ve missed this one for so long. Draft at Listermann’s Craft Beer Oktoberfest a couple years ago from notes. Pours a hazy brown color with a medium sized creamy beige head. The aroma is sweeter malts, hazelnut, vanilla, caramel, nice fleshy pumpkin and the requisite pumpkin pie spices, and hints of chocolate. The flavor is much of the same; sweeter caramel malts, hazelnut, pumpkin spice and pumpkin, chocolate, vanilla a very light bitterness to the finish.

Triple Digit Chickow!
12oz bottle pours a clear, caramel amber with some creamy, beige head. Nose is very nice, nuts, chocolate, brown sugar, caramel, hints of booze, a little chestnut honey, a little candlewax. Flavor is sweet with honey and brown sugar, marzipan, more rootbeer here than chocolate. Finishes sweet. As this warmed, I liked it less, the alcohol became MUCH more evident.

Triple Digit Bourbon Barrel Vanilla Chickow!
Bottle. Pours dark brown with a thin tan head. Aroma of malt, caramel, vanilla, nuts and booze. Malty and vanilla flavor with lots of hazelnut before a boozy finish. Tastes more hazelnutty than regular. I wonder if the vanilla or barrel (or both) help bring that character out more.
