domo on tap 1/5!13

apperance: Black in color with a small root beer colored tan head that quickly settles to a ring. Around the glass

Nose: a tart fruit smell to it but has some deep notes of leather and smoke. Kinda like a old ale with some smoke, oak, Bitter chocolate.

Taste: wow very different. A little tart up front with wine notes. Wood, roastness to it but surprising light and crisp... Bitter flavor on the back end. As it warms more alcohol is present. Really different and interesting.

mouthfeel: light and thin with moderate carbonation. it works well.

Overall: I like this beer. But although drinkable, its not something I would drink several of. I enjoyed This beer best of what was on tap. And they were all very good beers. Tired hands is putting out some top notch stuff.

Growler to Woodshop snifter

Thanks to Todd for sharing at Steve's house

App- It looked to me like the color of a brown growler just in liquid form. Catches the light well and has some good density behind it. For a saison a bit light on the bubbles and cling. Lighter edges as well. Get the color from the black wheat.

Smell- This has a lot going on in the aromatics department. A huge amount of wheat and rye but then it was tempered by the barley wine barrels and get abit of the tannic notes as well from the wine.

Taste- This was unique and tasty. A nice saison per se for the style but still has its own unique character from the ingredients. The addition of the rye adds a bit of spice and the barrel treatment added a depth of oak and wood behind the wine notes.

Mouth- Hits the mark one the feel. A solid medium body with a medium carbonation. More barrel notes come out as it warmed and was residual of the barleywine malts.

Drink- I enjoyed this beer. Different and layered. I might have to trade for a couple of their beers in the future.

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

A - Pours black with a half finger tall tan head leaving small trails of lace down parts of the glass.

S - Smells of bready rye, chocolate malt, mild dark roast, light farmhouse funk, oak and light tartness. Later opened a growler of this one and it wasn't near as good as this was.

T - Starts off with the bready rye and the chocolate malt sweetness slowly giving way to some musty funk, dark fruit, oak tannins and some dark roasted malt. Finish is a little sweet with some lingering dryness. Growler didn't fare nearly as well as the draft did.

M - Medium-Heavy body with moderate carbonation. It has a funky/roasty feel throughout that starts to wear on the palate.

O - I enjoyed this one but its nothing ground breaking. Kind of tastes like a spontaneous black ale with some extra roast thrown in on top. We opened a growler later, if only it would have been this good.

Thanks to Orangesol for sharing this 1-liter growler at our last gathering. This pours a dark brown with a still penline of a couple bubbles for a head. Faint traces of spots collect atop and stick to the glass when swirled. Some light brown clarity is seen around the edges.

The aroma is quite tangy with fruity character. It is vinous with funk and chocolate malt mixing things up. For the most part this is strange and doesnt mesh that well but it isnt bad.

The taste includes plenty of cocoa and hints of coffee. Some tangy vinous notes emerge possibly from the combination of the barrel aging and wild bugs. A big herbal hop bitterness is found across the finish which clashes a bit with earth and alcohol. As it warms up, it gets a little dusty feeling.

This is a medium bodied brew with too light a level of carbonation. Just a little bit of effervescence would have gone a long way to help blend and move the flavors across the tongue. Overall a prett decent and unique mix of character. If the bitternesd was tamed back a bit this would be superb.
