On tap at Tired Hands. Pours a deep black with a thin tan head. Smells like dessert, so that’s certainly accurate. Chocolate, marshmallow, a hint of coffee. Just on the thin side of medium-bodied, full of chocolate and cocoa. Roast, a bit of warming alcohol peeks through. Super smooth, malty and full of cocoa. Roasty, smooth, delicious. Finishes up with some lingering bitter cocoa. Very tasty. GT (10017) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 17, 2014

[ Tap ][ Tired Hands ][ 4oz ][ Mini Imperial Pint ][ $3 ][ 2/16/14 ]
>> Black pour, great lacing. Nose is ultra waxy black crayon, vanilla, graham cracker. Taste is heavy wax, heavy herbal bitterness, slick, super bitter. Can’t believe it’s 6.3%. Taste is all bitter, lighter mouthfeel given abv. Somewhat thin and lactic, a tad ashy in palate. Still, really good for abv with robust power. Wouldn’t peg it as a sweet stout either- thankfully.
<<!>> Slightly thin, ashy finish.
On tap at the source, pours pitch black with beige tiny bubbled head. Awesome appearance. Aroma is subtle cocoa, cigar, and pepper. Taste is roasted malt, chalk, fudge, espresso, graham and Columbian bean yo. Had some complex richness to it but needs a more full body. Still a great brew. joeneugs (6372) - Livermore, California, USA - FEB 28, 2014
32 oz. growler. Thanks again Vin! I always love me some TH. It pours black with a small tan head. Carbonation…yay! The aroma is nice with heavy roasted malt and some noticeable graham cracker and dark chocolate. Very little vanilla. The flavor is sweet and dessert like with lots of cocoa, caramel and some vanilla…more than the aroma. Theres a bit of sweet cola that comes through right before the finish which has a nice combo of roasted malt and solid bitterness. A little coffee like acidity. The body is full and has medium carbonation. The roasted, bitter finish was what I liked most about this beer, but it was a tad sweet for my tastes. Good one. callmemickey (4561) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 12, 2014
Pitch black body with a healthy sized khaki foam, soapy lacing. Intense vanilla in the nose masks an underlying bittersweet chocolate and roasted malt base. Some graham cracker comes in towards the back-end of the flavor provile. Medium bodied, but thins out (unfortunately) toward the finish. Lacks the weight necessary to capture the decadence it could.

sepia with puffy cream head, lightly ashy with coffee hints, sugary milk chocolate underneath. Ashy profile up front, strong roast through mid with sticky finishing with LONG graham cracker. Tons of grain and balance throughout. No alcohol, no excess sugar. Fuckin A. reggiedunlop (3726) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 9, 2014
Pours black with a medium mocha head.. heavy lacing and a thin retention. Aroma has some roastiness and fruit (smells like a hint of red twizzlers?)...dark chocolate and very faint anise. Flavor has a slightly sweet dark chocolate that fade to bakers chocolate...nice bold roastiness...just a hint of graham and marshmallow in there if you’re looking for it. Mouthfeel is medium/full with a dry roasty/slightly fruity/bitter dark chocolate finish. Drinks like a big impy but only 6.3%. TheEpeeist (3709) - Media, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 25, 2014
Growler, a few days old from the source. Dark brown with forced tan froth. Nose is chocolate, caramel, vanilla and graham cracker. The aroma they nailed. Medium body with a tang. Taste is coffee, vanilla, chocolate bubblegum and hay with lingering dark roast. A slight miss but still tasty. fluffy (2461) - St Petersburg, Florida, USA - JUN 8, 2014
honestly for the all fuss over Tired Hands i dont really get it. guessing some of their other stuff is better-this was kinda watery and bland. HonusWagner (2248) - Florida, USA - FEB 23, 2014
Yeah, I wasn’t a fan of this one. Lightly metallic, hints of cocoa, medium sweetness, didn’t get any vanilla/graham flavor whatsoever. Probably my least favorite TH beer yet.
