Draft at TH. Pours black with medium tan head. Aroma is roasted malt, coffee, chocolate, green pepper. Medium body. Mostly roast, coffee and chocolate taste with subtle pepper and smoke. Very little heat which would distract from the beer.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark brown-black body, medium sized khaki head, nice soapy lacing. Bittersweet and dark chocolates, peppers, nicely roasted coffee, gentle smoky notes. Flavor shows all of the above, but with each sip the pepper lingers longer and longer, growing more distracting and less complementary--despite starting off quite well. Medium to thin bodied (the area where most TH stouts struggle to excel), mellow carbonation, lingering pepper heat. Intriguing.

On tap, puts blackish brown color with smaller head and lace. Aromas and flavor are subtle, rich pepper, cocoa, coffee, brown sugar, and vanilla malt. Ultra rich and decadent with restrained pepper. Killer shit from the crew at tired hands.

pours black with a medium mocha head...thin lacing. aroma has nice roasty coffee and mild dark chocolate...just a faint hint of smoky heat. flavor really showcases the coffee...great roasty fresh coffee...light heat creeps in and lingers...some dark chocolate and faint smoke and vanilla...awesome. mouthfeel is medium/full and creamy with a dark chocolate/coffee finish that lingers to peppery heat. just excellent! i love this beer!
