4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This is a nice and malty beer. Aroma is full of malt, chocolate, dark fruits, and a Belgian yeast smell. Now what I loved about this beer when it came to taste is the amount of sweetness it gave off. It wasn’t to sweet but it was sweet enough. The sweetness lasts from start to finish and is mixed in with a small bit of tartness, coffee, chocolate, and dark fruit. It’s just wonderful and I finished my glass wanting more.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a very dark, lightless and deep reddish-brown. Aroma is straightforward enough; sweet, Belgian yeast, fruit, grass. Taste is similar; sweet fruits, bubblegum, spicy, alcohol, Belgian yeast. Medium bodied. Medium carbonation, very appropriate. Some lacing. Nice, overall. This is a beer that does a great job of having taste and personality while still being relatively simple. They may have used several malts in the brewing process, but this beer wins in what it achieves in simplicity. Well crafted.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Une bouteille de 75 cl qui renferme un liquide presque noir. La mousse qui apparaît au versement est bien crémeuse et tenace. Une dentelle couvre la presque totalité de mon verre de Hill Farmstead. D’emblée, je peux dire que je ne déteste pas ce nez. Les malts noirs, le chocolat, les fruits foncés, la levure surette et le clou de girofle me semblent être les principaux éléments qui façonnent le bouquet. Le plaisir se transporte sur les papilles. Chaque gorgée apporte de la mélasse, du chocolat, des raisins et des prunes surettes. Il ya des épices qui participent à l’élaboration de ces flaveurs. L’alcool ne réchauffe jamais mon palais : j’en fais une lecture plutôt florale. En bouche, le liquide montre un corps riche. Son pétillement tout en douceur et sa texture crémeuse prolongent l’effet des saveurs. La finale, secoué par la levure, donne une impression de girofle vitement rattrapée par des notes asséchantes d’alcool.

3.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This beer’s aroma is subtle yet enjoyable to the pure roasted malt character of it, and the appearance iss reddish dark brown with no head. The taste is slightly sweet, slightly sour, and slightly umami, creating a very pleasing balance, which was complemented by the medium body, soft carbonation, long finish, and slick texture.

750ml bottle shared at Zach & Matt’s tasting. Pours brownish black with a small tan head. Aroma is really nice, some chocolate, malts, dark fruits and vanilla. Taste is slightly boozy, but very balanced with notes of malt, chocolate, Belgian yeast, spice and dark fruits. Highly carbonated, almost champange-like. I really enjoyed this one.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
I love dark full beers, but this one was a little too large tasting. It was a little hard to enjoy because it was very strong tasting. It is hard to describe exactly what I didn't like specifically. I remember thinking wow, that is a big beer.
