From the tank at the brewery. Pours dark brown to black with a small and tan head. Aroma is coffee, toffee caramelish, roasted malt and quite clear vanilla notes - more vanilla than its Danish twin brew from Fanø. Smooth dark roasted to toffee sweet malty flavoured. Light sweetness mixed with a distinct vanilla presence. Smooth roasted malty and bitter finish. Lingering toffee, chocolate, coffee and smooth yet declining vanilla.

Tasting at Bruce’s pad. Thanks to Leighton who always comes up with the Hill Farmstead treats! Opaque black - brown beer, good tan head. Palate is airy and a little soft. Fairly dry. Mellow dark malts, just a touch of roast and coffee. Mild roast bitterness develops but is offsett by vanilla and a trace of wood. Dry and mildly bitter finish. Not the smoothest of Hill Farmstead beers but pretty drinkable.

Completely black, thick brown head, moderate retention. Aroma of seven layer death-by-chocolate cake. Taste is espresso poured over an Italian tartuffo dessert. Medium body. Very nice.

Keg at The Pony Bar, NYC. Pours oily brown with a creamy, tan head. Big coffee aroma with subtle roasted malt notes. Hints of cinnamon do poke through. Medium sweet flavor with moderate roast, roasty mocha, slight earth. Medium bodied with average carbonation and a rather silky feel. Roasty finish, some burnt cocoa and burnt earth, mild bitterness, light cinnamon spiciness. Lingering cocoa with a lasting chocolate-cinnamon mix flavor. I have used the old chocolate/cinnamon combination for years in oatmeal and smoothies, and I can tell you this is almost exactly the way it tastes. As I finish, Levon Helm’s rendition of Tennessee Jed comes on. Great beer overall, enjoyed in the best beer bar in NYC.

Bottle at Toms 10 yr anniversary. Chocolate woody aroma. Decent chocolate. It’s ok a bit thin over carbonated harsh om the finish.
