Poured from growler filled 2 days earlier, into crooked stave tulip. Pours a black color with white lacing. Not much to look at, but the aroma is awesome...coffee and roasted malt with a sweet note. Taste is coffee and roasted malt, a touch of sweetness, and a mild base. My one gripe, and its small, is its a bit thin. Clean and crisp but tasty porter. Nice brew, and great story behind it. Tired Hands never disappoints.

First had: on tap at TH

Dark brown-black pour with a creamy tan head that retained well and laced nicely. Aroma was pretty much spot on for the style, lots of roast, and not much else, robust and full of coffee and dark malts. Taste was essentially the same, roasty, dark malts, bold espresso profile, but smooth and not at all overbearing or overly bitter, though there was a nice earthy bitterness in the finish, which was probably more from the mellow hop bill. Mouthfeel was smooth enough, not quite velvety, but definitely smooth considering the roastiness going on. Body was medium, temperature served was a bit low. A good drinker overall, but cask is the way to go on this one.
