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.

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.

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.
