Poured from a 32 oz growler into a 12 oz glass.

Pours black with a thin tan head. Minimal lacing.

Dark chocolate, ash, some bitterness

Sweet dark chocolate, some dark fruits, coffee, and ash.

Very good imperial stout. Nice amount of roast and dark fruits.

Black wax. 500ml bottle into a Brooklyn Brewery snifter.

This one's a huge gusher that basically exploded over my entire kitchen. Poured whatever was left into my glass. 5 finger light mocha colored head with extreme retention. Lacing is thick, stringy and layered with excellent stick. Beer is pitch black but pretty thin. Looks great.

Nose is tart red fruit, peat and smoked and roasted malt. Alarmingly tart.

Opens roasted malt, chocolate, Brett funk, plastic and light smatterings of tart red fruit. Coarse smoke throughout. Butter and cocoa powder and soil bitterness. End if dirt and more roast. Aftertaste is awkwardly bittersweet. Not good. And I'm pretty sure this is infected.

Medium bodied with ample carbonation. Weirdly prickly but at the same time buttery in the mouth. Pretty thin. Goes down oily with a coarse, accented finish and a sticky, filmy aftertaste that sticks around. Too thin and too carbonated.

Another shining example of why, when you get an imperial stout, DO NOT AGE IT! This one's clearly infected. Pretty poor all the way around but I think the worst part is the buttery but at the same time too carbonated feel. I really like Jean and Tired Hands in general but this is just a really bad beer.

Growler pour courtesy of the kind bartender at Tørst a few weeks ago; thanks!. Reviewed from notes.

A: Black, still body with bright red-brown highlights. Ok.

S: Powerful molasses, chocolate, peppery spicy, and raisins. Fudge and smoke, too. Extremely complex.

T: Smooth, rich dark chocolate dominates, with coffee, raisin, almond, and smoke as well. Big, lingering, warming finish with a smoky aftertaste. Very nice.

M: The flat-looking body wakes up at least a little, with some light carbonation helping to soften the blow of the hugely thick, viscous body. Delectable.

O: This was excellent, and I can only imagine that the barrel-aged versions are better still. Can't wait to try more Tired Hands stuff.

Cheers!
