A really great beer, the coffee harmonizes well with the bourbon character and yet creates something completely different from a KBS or BCBS, has a weirdly "light" character by comparison, I don’t even know. Thanks Colin.

Genealogy of Morals, batches 1 & 2. The beer appears dark brown, near black, with a thin, bubbly, tan head. The aroma offers oak, vanilla, bourbon, roast, chocolate. Lighter in body than the Madeira version. brighter on the palate as well. Wow, super easy to drink. Moderate to soft carbonation with bourbon and dark chocolates. Delicious!

Bottle shared at DLD. Pours a dark black with a light brown head that quickly dissipates. Aromas of coffee, fudge, cocoa powder, vanilla, alcohol. Taste is sweet with a bitter coffee dryness mixed in there. I think I prefer this to Damon.

500 ml bottle shared by ygtbsm94, thanks Brad! Pours a black cherry/near black color with ruby hues on edge when backlit. Beige head is minimal, and hugs edge. Aroma is massive: roast, smoke, chocolate malts, tobacco, tar, peat, oak, dark fruits, coffee, and bourbon booze note. Flavor is same - delicious and complex. Silky mouthfeel, moderate carbonation, sweet caramel bourbon boozy finish. Outstanding.

Bouteille 10-2013. Un autre monstre signée Hill. Un liquide brun foncé avec une mousse brune et une texture crémeuse. Un nez mélangé de café, bourbon et chocolat. Une bouche où le bourbon ne domine pas trop mais il laisse une place au café et au chocolat. Agréable malgré la présence de l’alcool qui pique la langue.

50 cl from my czar. Many thanks dude! Une robe presque pourpre qui ne garde qu’un simple anneau de mousse. Un nez assez flagrant de bourbon végétal et de cognac avec une touche vanillée, du chocolat noir et du café bien fort. En bouche, des saveurs douces de raisins, de chocolat, de bourbon caramélisé et de mélasse avec la chaleur d’un alcool brun qui est en très grande forme. En bouche, ma langue est rendue lourde par le manque de bulles et par la texture visqueuse du liquide. En finale, tout un vacarme de notes chaudes et de notes sucrées bien collantes. Une autre bombe de bourbon et de sucres résiduels concoctée par Hill Farmstead. Bonne mais plus ou moins facile à boire à cause de son alcool aiguisé et de son haut taux de sucre.
