COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Damon (1993-2004) The time spent with loved ones, now lost, seems to affect our mind and body perpetually: memories happen upon us, unsuspectingly, and bring about tears of fond remembrance. Damon was our brother – devout and patient in an age of busyness and distraction. In his honor, we crafted and conditioned this Imperial Stout in bourbon barrels from our favorite distillery. We still reflect, daily, upon our Damon and his scruffy chin of grey – of his loyalty and his love. 27º Plato 10.5% abv

Deep black body, thin tan head, spotty lacing. Rich with dark chocolate, roasted malts, bourbon, vanilla, caramel and oak. Medium to full bodied, smooth, gentle carbonation, lingering warming finish, light bitterness.

canary dog (665) - Rutland, Vermont, USA - OCT 24, 2014
Yes, this is inky, strong and unstoppably opaque. A milky film of sea foam lies gently atop the murkiness, weakly hiding its myriad secrets. Roasted, bitter and sweet nutty accents come in and out at various moments. Strong and dark notes. The alcohol is kept under control-- impressive, considering its generous role. Damon would be proud to have this fine libation concocted in his magnificent honor.

emacgee (4137) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - OCT 22, 2014
Shared by Taylor M. Thanks man. Inky black pour with a dense chestnut brown head. Nose is very rich and layered, Bourbon/wood with burnt sugar and molasses following. Dark fruit and nuanced dark chocolate. Full and weighty in the mouth, coating and viscous finish. Vanilla and burnt wood in the flavor with blackstrap and dark fruit skins. Lovely.

rodenbach99 (3255) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 9, 2014
Bouteille 08-2013. Belle robe noire. La texture semble visqueuse. Un premier nez boisé avec des notes de whiskey. Une bouche chaude, puissante, très puissante. Des saveurs classiques de Impy au bourbon. Bien faite.

SlovakSniper (3347) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 9, 2014
Damon dans le vintage 2013. Brun très foncé avec un anneau plutôt chétif. Au nez, décadence à la romaine avec du chocolat qui fume, du bourbon caramélisé, du café riche, du bois rôti et des touches de mélasse de figues et/ou de dattes. Au goût, des fruits foncés et du chocolat en abondance, des notes douces, vanillées et caramélisés, un bourbon intégré et/ou évaporé, un mince effet poivré et des friandises anglaises très sucrées et caloriques qui rendent l’appareil un peu lourd et collant. En bouche, un corps balourd qui reste attaché aux commissures de mes lèvres. En finale, une bombe chocolatée, caramélisée et vanillée qui explose sur les malts rôtis et torréfiés. Beau nez et bouche beaucoup (voire même excessivement) trop sucrée. Glucides simples, obésité, diabète, maladies cardio-vasculaires sont des mots qui me viennent soudainement à l’esprit. Dans l’ensemble, c’est correct et délicieux mais, pour moi, ça reste loin du spectacle et de l’incroyable.

tectactoe (2293) - Michigan, USA - SEP 7, 2014
Bottle: Black, inky center with lush mahogany edges. A fine, mocha film slowly forms up top, then disperses quickly towards the edges. Wow, lovely aroma of rich, dark fudge, chocolate cake batter, sweet baker’s cocoa, smooth whiskey, mild tannic oak, vanilla, burnt toffee, & just a touch of powdered coffee. Very robust, yet delicate & pedantic all at once. The flavor is excellent, & has a nice German Chocolate Cake vibe to it; dense chocolate mixing with a hint of coconut & vanillin from the barrel. Woody & slightly tannic mid-palate, but not overdone. Smooth bourbon lathered throughout. A hint of char towards the finish, as a big, burnt brown sugar profile comes swooping in, leaving your palate with an intrinsic sweetness in the aftertaste. Nice, creamy mouth feel. A pretty fantastic stout. Blows out the Port barrel aged version by a nautical mile.

Huhzubendah (2650) - Washington DC, USA - AUG 21, 2014
Served alongside Port Damon and Double Barrel Damon. The beer is dark brown, near black, with a small beige collar. Aromas of dark roast, chocolate. Rich and flavorful. Dark chocolates. Oak and bourbon character are there, but don’t overwhelm the flavor profile. Elegant feel. Medium to full bodied with moderate carbonation. While I enjoy everything Hill Farmstead, in general, it seems the stouts are not quite up to the level of their saisons and IPAs.

RussianDragon (514) - - AUG 8, 2014
500 ml bottle is 2013 vintage. Pours a near black with maroon hues on the edge with a lasting beige edge head. Aroma is roast, smoke, raisins, chocolate malt, and a slight bourbon spiciness. Flavor is same, with moderate carbonation. Full syrupy mouthfeel.
