4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

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.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours black with a medium tan head. Aroma has lots of roastiness...some faint smoke and coffee...earthy almost like mushrooms...very faint tartness. Flavor follows suit...unique earthiness that is hard to describe and nice roastiness...some faint soury notes creeping in. Mouthfeel is medium/full with an earthy/burnt finish that has good bitterness.

Wow - super unique and interesting! Pours unclear dark coffee in color with a cinnamon beige head. The aroma is sweet and earthy, quite potent but enjoyed. The flavor brings the brine, more prevalent than any other brew with shells I have had. There are sweet malts as well on a decent body.
