My first Tired Hands offering on tap at the source. The brew appears black in color with a dark brown head that is frothy and akin to espresso. Some patchy lace clings to the glass as the cap slowly fades.

The smell is roasty with a dark grain inclusion that evokes thoughts of fresh coffee and chocolate with a bit of a citrus hop aspect. There is a pretty solid mineral inclusion to the aromatics (in assuming to be the shells) along with hints of fruity alcohol esters.

The flavor also includes a fruity to solvent alcohol character mixed with almost a citrus zest to fruit and floral component. A roasted grain aspect brings out flavors of coffee and bitter chocolate with a solid mineral aspect. There is a lingering earthy aftertaste of dirt and dust that is mildly musty that increases in character as it warms up.

This is a medium bodied brew woth a modest amount of carbonation. It is smooth in the feel but really one roasty bugger with an evident amount of hops. I feel like the shells really came through and produced the desired effect of making this feel like an oyster stout. It was spot on with the feel and mineral inclusion. The earthen components and roast really worked well together.

Serving type: on-tap

Here’s another odd one, served on tap at Tired Hands. Brewed with snail shells but I must admit I detected little difference from the various oyster stouts I’ve had in terms of mollusk-ability. There’s a lightly metallic mineral note and suggestions of briny sea water here but it’s subtle and well-integrated. The look is lovely; deep and dark brown, with a frothy tan head, creamy lace, and a milkshake aspect that makes you want to get to it. Roasty aroma, with piney, citrusy hops underneath, some coffee, and the aforementioned mineral quality.

The flavor is aligned with the aroma; roasted malts hit you first, but it becomes more hop dominant as you work your way through the glass, with citrus and pine and a general bright bitter hoppiness emerging and taking over. The mineral aspect comes out a bit after the swallow where it intermingles with slowly fading bitterness.

Very smooth and creamy, as is now par for the course at Tired Hands, and medium in body. In the end my impression was less of a stout than of a hybrid; hops become the dominant force, with a nice appearance from the roasted malts and snail shells, but the latter two are supporting players.
