This was one of my favorite Tired Hands beers ever. Really clean, interesting profile and I was thirsty for more. It’s a shame the TH bottle releases are so tiny as in usually 1 barrel worth and sell out quickly. I’ll just keep relying on people sending me these as extras and not seeking them out.
AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
S – Nose is pretty interesting. Obviously sour fruits dominate. Lots of oak. Biscuit and cinnamon notes and vanilla bean. Acidity that levels on fresh espresso.
T – The whiskey comes through very strong in taste. This is quite nice! It’s sweet, dry and cloying all at once. Lovely tart blackberry / cherry mix. The whiskey is solid leaving behind wood, vanilla and cereal. The fruit & whiskey is blended in no way I’ve ever had before. Really solid beer.
M – Silky smooth with coffee & berry acidity throughout. Slick almost and not overpowering.
O – Low ratings so far makes me think this one isn’t a large bottling run but I’m glad to have tried it.
