First had: on tap at TH

Dark coffee-brown pour with a small foamy tan head. Aroma was roasty, dark malts, and a bit of indistinct fruit. Taste of dark roasty malts, nutty, with the yeast imparting a bit of a clashing tea-like taste to the beer; came off tasting more like a basic homebrew. Kind of thin, about medium-bodied, maybe closer to an English porter. Drinkable, but too lacking in body for me.

Poured into a becher pint glass, the appearance was a mostly dark brown color almost black. With a finger's worth of white foamy head that slid off at a moderate pace. Slight lace ran here and there, somewhat in rings, but stringing itself downward.
The aroma had a nice amount of roasty coffee beans, some dark fruits, some dark roasted nuts and a little bit of black tea.
The flavor was moderately sweet tea to dark roasty nuttiness with the dark fruits taking a further backseat. Mild aftertaste of the roast but not necessarily coffee, it's drier and crisp with the black tea there too.
The mouthfeel was about medium bodied, perhaps a touch under with a nice easy going sessionability about it. Carbonation was a bit under but acceptable to me. ABV felt on par. Not much of a finish, but seemed a bit black tea-like to dark fruity and slightly roasty.
Overall, pretty nice American stout to me, I'd have again.

On draft at Tired Hands.

The beer is dark brown with a soapy beige head. The aroma offers milk chocolates, roast. Saison yeast and hops are mild. Really easy to drink. Quite delicious actually. Lots of milk chocolates and beautiful roast character. So easy to drink. Really smooth on the palate. Dry finish with some bittering hops. Lingering roast and chocolates. A winner.
