Tap at Tired Hands. Amazing pour. Perfect deep black pour with reddish, thicker mocha near nitro foam with mega retention and complete sheety lace. Nose is sharper coffee porter. Opens up as it warms and gains beautiful savory complexities- woods, campfire, wildflowers, some black cherry chocolate souffle. Taste is very bitter, small alcohol sweetness, bitter tar and charcoal pencil, black crayon waxiness. Ends with sharper acid and massive tree bark, earthy, rindy bitterness. Interesting. Could pass for porter since it’s not overly thick or dense. Very bitter thick dark chocolate is forefront. Agree with the style switch from Imperial Stout to normal Stout.

UPDATED: AUG 31, 2013 Bottle shared by Joel. Pours black with tan head. Nose is brine, cocoa, steamed chocolate and steamed mussels. Taste is similar, less mussels. Very delicate on the palate. Slightly Lighter than Medium body.

Thanks, Moll. Served side by side in Tired Hands and Stillwater wine glasses. The latter finally in my possession courtesy of drabmuh. Thanks, Matt!! Slight mineral character with roast and mild chocolate. Mineral fairly heavy in flavor with a bit of earth. Very mild leather.

Nate (3698) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 20, 2012
On tap at Tired Hands. Earthy roasted aroma with light alcohol, beef bbq, and chocolate. Herbs. Dark brown opaque with thin head. Medium-heavy body light carbonation. Rich earthy, chocolatey, beefy. Roasted with Twizzlers and light bitter tangy finish. Neutral fruity character, rich and sublime with nice after.
