First had: on tap at the brewpub

"But no more gold for the traitors who possess the ancient ruins
By their untruth spells they take the world and the earth breathing fire
On the endless oil seas never ending towers of flames..."

Dark brown-black pour, with a pinky finger of foamy tan head; decent retention and lacing. Aromas of roasted malts, toasted bread, light char. Taste started off roasty light a light schwarzbier, notes of coffee and cocoa, pine needles, giving way to over-toasted pumpernickel. The smoke/char was quite mellow, which worked well. Good drinkability, body was about medium, no question about this beer being a lager, but all the flavors melded well to create something truly unique. As you would expect from Tired Hands.

Served on-tap at the Brewpub. Reviewed from notes.

A - Pours Deep brown bordering on black, creamy off white head.

S - Smells of smokey peat, roasted nuts, dark roasted chocolate malt, some piney hops and a bit of light funk? I am just not sure about this one after this nose.

T - Taste is pretty similar to the nose. Starts off with the smoke and light nuttiness slowly giving way to the chocolate malt, hops and that light funk again. Finish is smokey but not overpowering, it lingers but not for very long.

M - Heavy body with moderate carbonation. Smokey, roasted feel is just a little off-putting for some reason.

O - The flavors are decent but all over the place. Still not sure about that light funk aroma/flavor. It isn't off-putting but it kinda gets in the way of the true flavors.

On Tap at The Brew Cafe in Ardmore, this is Tired Hands black winter lager

Deep Sleep pours out pretty black but further inspection sees this as an extremely brown ale with black runnings within it. The foam on top is tan colored with a firmness that sticks around a bit. Nice sheets of lace on the way down. This one has some smoked malt characteristics with a nice pine burst seeping out with addition of Simcoe hops and actual pine needles. The smoked malt is pleasant and add another layer to the musk. This is a well done black lager, a bit tastier than your average schwartzbier. This has tastes of pine, roast flavor, vegetal hop taste, orange and earth. I like the mix between the simcoe and the smoked malt, interesting clash. Feel is a step below medium with a smooth carb that does not get too bitey. This is a winner and a bit off the beaten path, sure to warm you up in the winter, Deep Sleep will probably go well with some holiday dinners with the fam. Easy, light and not to technical.

on tap at the brewpub

Pours an inky blackness with a bubbled, frothy tanned head. Retains well, fading into a foamy collar with spotty lacing on the glass.

Warmly smoked malts in the nose with hoppy pine and roasted warmth. Earthy and slightly sweet with chocolate nuttiness.

Notes of earthy smoke and pine needles right up front. Slightly hoppy and bitter with dark roasted malts and soft chocolate sweetness. Nutty and dark with continuing smokiness and a touch of peat. Finishes with a soft alcohol warmth.

Medium body, decent carbonation, creamy and bubbly on the tongue. Really tasty smoked beer without going completely overboard, although it was difficult to find the appropriate category for this one. It's definitely an American Black, but lager brewed, and not quite a Schwarzbier. Either way, I enjoyed this enough to bring home a 1L growler to enjoy for the the evening, as it felt perfect for the frozen, awful weather we're having here.

This poured out as a nice dark brown color with a light tan head on top. The retention and lacing were pretty good on this one. The smell not appealing to me at all... Not sure why, but it just smelled like something wasn't quite right with this beer. The taste has a nice lightly smoked profile with some spicy bitterness in the finish. The mouthfeel of the beer was medium bodied and remains drinkable from start to finish. Overall I would have liked this a lot more but there was just something about the aroma that not only I thought but my two friends also found unsettleing. Everything else about this beer was fine though.
