Thanks to Jeff for busting open all the Tired Hands stuff recently. The more I know about them, the more I like 'em. Only Void is oily and black, falling straight out of the octopus's ink sac. Almost no head on this sucker - perhaps a consequence of the growler? A tan-colored collar, the thinnest I've ever seen, outlines the black abyss before leaving the top completely bare only moments later.

This is the "Stainless (steel)" version, though I actually can smell a touch of wood immediately in the aroma. Then again, maybe it's just my psyche yearning for a barrel-aged version and playing dastardly tricks on me. Roasted malts and lightly burnt coffee beans mingle together nicely; cool, calm, and collective. I'm talking "George Clooney picking up a college chick at a frat party" kind of smooth, here.

The taste is roasty up front, but Only Void pulls an immediate bait and switch, pulling the roast from your tongue and launching a thousand ships of sweet, molten cocoa nibs into your senses like your palate was Paris and it had kidnapped Helen of Troy. I'm getting more wonderfully sweet flavor meshes here; cocoa, vanilla, faint coffee, and even a hint of maple.

Finishing residual sweetness lacquers the palate and keeps your sweet tooth in check, flirting with disaster but never actually reaching the point of no return. This is much more delectable of a stout than I figured it would be. Even after smelling it, I never thought the taste would be so sweet, yet so controlled and refined.

It's got a pretty big body, but is on the lighter side when only considering the spectrum of 10%+ ABV stouts. It's one of the skinnier chicks in the plus-size section of the Sears catalog, if you catch my drift. Low carbonation, as evidenced by the lack of head, and I'm still not sure if that was growler induced or intentional, but it didn't harm the mouth feel too much; still pretty silky, smooth, and sexy.

Wow, this one really did it for me. I really enjoyed this beer, probably more than I should have. I'm somewhat apprehensive when it comes to sweet stouts, but something about the sugar-y and sweet aspect of this beer didn't bother me whatsoever. So welcoming and easy to drink, I went back for a few more pours. Now I have to get the red wine barrel aged version, dammit.

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!
