A light-medium murky brown body with a thick, frothy tan head that leaves a sticky mess of lacing. Aroma includes dank earthy hops, nutty toast and hints of cocoa. Flavor is much of the same with big dank hops balanced out by lots of earthy and nutty malts. The feel is medium bodied with medium carbonation, somewhat creamy. This one reminds me of one of TH's better black IPAs with the roastiness replaced by toastiness. A good take on a "brown IPA" or a hoppy brown.

Not my favorite. Looks like dirty water, the kind of mud that's stirred up when you walk barefoot through a lake. Nose is alright, hints of caramel and roasted beans. Taste begins with a pleasant caramel sweetness but is quickly replaced by a boozy presence that's totally out of place. Feel is just right and it is drinkable but not one I'll order again.

On Tap at Tired Hands

Aloysious pours out the standard brown color, it's a touch darker than that with a shoeshine brown look with a light tan head up top leaving no stick on the glass. Smell is pretty hoppy, and nice bright earthy hop scent, with a faint roasty background. It's a standard style, yet I get sniffs of caramel mixed in with some rye malt. Tasting this, i get most of the above mentioned scents in the taste including some pine mixed in with citrus backed by rye and caramel. Well balanced beer that deserves a look into, but not a growler purchase. Feel is less than medium with light carb and a mild bitterness.
