4.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Black pour with a full beautiful dark brown head. The aroma is intoxicating. Amazing notes of dark, roasted malt, cocoa, and loads of espresso. Some light soy, some smoke, and burnt brown sugar. The body is silky and luscious, the carb is soft and luxurious. The finish is medium bitter, loads of bitter espresso. Sweet and bitter cocoa, and touches of warming alcohol. Incredible stout. World class.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Huge fan of this beer. Had on tap and in growlers.
Deep brown/black color with a medium sized, tan head with nice lacing. Aroma is nicely roasted malts, coffee, caramel, and light chocolate. Medium body with highly complex, mature flavors of roasted malts, coffee, cocoa and the perfect touch of hops.
Pleasantly reminiscent of Mikkeller Beer Geek or the Olbutikken Porter, this is a staple beer in my fridge the last few months.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: JAN 4, 2014 Une magnifique stout dotée d’une torréfaction puissante mais qui ne s’éternise pas en amertume indélébile. Le corps est duveteux et riche pour sa grosseur et les notes de moka finissent par percer à mesure que le liquide se réchauffe. Impressionnante charge de saveurs pour 7.2%.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
THIS BEER IS STUPID GOOD. Pours a black body with a tan roast y head. A bitter roasted malt chocolate body. A hint of a vanilla sweetness to balance but never sweet. Just a really solid drinking stout. 3 pints later i forgot about my 6 hour drive. Nice to see a brewer that can make an awesome ipa, saison, & stout. Seriously underated.

Growler from Glouglouburp- thanks again Dany! Pours opaque cola with frothy two finger head. Huge delicious coffee nose, slight chocolate, but mostly just unbelievable coffee. Taste- a juicy tart twang from the oatmeal, slight bitterness, and tons of fresh roasted coffee . Fantastic. Drinkability is off the charts. Very light bodied but yet the flavour profile is amazing and the freshness of the coffee really shiines through. HF really nailed this

Growler sample via and shared with oakbluff. Jet black in colour with medium carbonation. Aromas are of high quality fresh brewed coffee, backed by milk chocolate and a touch of vanilla. Coffee plays the largest role in the mouth as well, but the secondary notes come through a bit stronger here. Oatmeal, faint caramelm roasted barley, and a bit of matchbox all play a role here. Medium to light bodied, with great bite from the roast and a very subtle tartness coming from somewhere. Another home run from Hill Farmstead.

On tap at the brewery and later at Parker Pie. Dark brown pour light brown head. Coffee and dark roasted malt bouquet. Dark roasted malts, coffee, bakers chocolate, and muted caramel notes. Very good body and mouthfeel.
