Growler fill at Tired Hands, poured into a Tired Hands stem glass. Pours deep dark brown with a mocha colored head. Head dies down to just a ring on the edge. Nothing too exciting here.

Excellent coffee aroma. Smells like a creamy cappuccino. Pretty rich, with notes of vanilla, cookie dough, and unripened banana.

Medium bodied, full flavored. Coffee is present, obviously, but is also on top of a very smooth, creamy body. Makes me think of an oatmeal stout. Lingering roasted flavor in the finish and aftertaste. Not overdone. Dark chocolate notes. Soft body, light texture. Perfect carbonation.

Whatever this is (coffee porter, coffee oatmeal stout, coffee brown ale) it succeeds in being a tasty, drinkable coffee beer. After a healthy glass I feel a light buzz, maybe from the alcohol maybe from the caffeine. It tastes very fresh and I'm happy that I got myself a growler.

thanks to tenderbranson69 for sharing this, enjoyed from the growler chilled in a teku.

The color is black with no light passing through the head is medium brown with retention that comes and goes. The smell is lightly sweet with earthy odor of coffee and roasted malt. The feel is good, not heavy, yet has moderate carbonation and low sweetness with gentle roast texture.

The flavor is somewhat toasted with some malty foundation and moderately high coffee presence with slight sweet cocoa elements and smooth nutty flavors accenting with mild bitterness for the style. I was very pleased with the flavor and would definitely order this again if the opportunity presented itself.

32 oz growler, filled yesterday at Tired Hands, poured into a snifter.

A- Pours black with a finger of creamy khaki head, leaves some nice lacing.

S- Very nice aroma of coffee, also some milk and dark chocolate and roasted malt. Smells pretty nice.

T- Nice coffee again, a bit of dark chocolate and roasted grain. Has a nice coffee bitterness and milk chocolate flavor towards the finish. This tastes nice, but seems a bit muted.

M- Medium-bodied, has a smooth, but quite thin feel, even for 6.60%.

O- A fairly average stout. The coffee character itself is quite nice, but it isn't as bold in the aroma as I might like, and the flavors and feel are a bit thin and muted.

First had: on tap at TH

Dark brown color, slightly translucent at the edges, with a small tan head that receded to a ringlet; spotty lacing. Nice coffee bean aroma, roasty dark malts, a touch of milk chocolate. Nice smooth coffee in the taste, not too bitter or stiff, dark malts, creamy sweetness (lactose in there?), light milk chocolate. Mouthfeel was smooth, body was about medium, not as rich as you'd expect from an oatmeal stout, but still pretty velvety, even at the somewhat too-cold temperature at which it was served; fleshed out a bit as it warmed. Overall quite nice. Stouts don't seem to be Tired Hands forte, but this probably the best one they've made so far.

Brewed with oats and a plethora of specialty malts. Conditioned on a copious amount of Espresso beans from One Village Coffee.

This was tapped roughly an hour before I arrived. Dark brown in color. Thin-medium body. Although there was a thin head, carbonation has held up. Strong aroma of coffee with a touch of dark malts. Taste is similar with the strong coffee element with a tinge of dark chocolate. Found this to be highly quaffable.
