On Tap at The Brew Cafe in Ardmore, this is Tired Hands black winter lager

Deep Sleep pours out pretty black but further inspection sees this as an extremely brown ale with black runnings within it. The foam on top is tan colored with a firmness that sticks around a bit. Nice sheets of lace on the way down. This one has some smoked malt characteristics with a nice pine burst seeping out with addition of Simcoe hops and actual pine needles. The smoked malt is pleasant and add another layer to the musk. This is a well done black lager, a bit tastier than your average schwartzbier. This has tastes of pine, roast flavor, vegetal hop taste, orange and earth. I like the mix between the simcoe and the smoked malt, interesting clash. Feel is a step below medium with a smooth carb that does not get too bitey. This is a winner and a bit off the beaten path, sure to warm you up in the winter, Deep Sleep will probably go well with some holiday dinners with the fam. Easy, light and not to technical.

on tap at the brewpub

Pours an inky blackness with a bubbled, frothy tanned head. Retains well, fading into a foamy collar with spotty lacing on the glass.

Warmly smoked malts in the nose with hoppy pine and roasted warmth. Earthy and slightly sweet with chocolate nuttiness.

Notes of earthy smoke and pine needles right up front. Slightly hoppy and bitter with dark roasted malts and soft chocolate sweetness. Nutty and dark with continuing smokiness and a touch of peat. Finishes with a soft alcohol warmth.

Medium body, decent carbonation, creamy and bubbly on the tongue. Really tasty smoked beer without going completely overboard, although it was difficult to find the appropriate category for this one. It's definitely an American Black, but lager brewed, and not quite a Schwarzbier. Either way, I enjoyed this enough to bring home a 1L growler to enjoy for the the evening, as it felt perfect for the frozen, awful weather we're having here.
