COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Aaron A. Hill (1786-1869) was our great-great-great grandfather who operated the original tavern in North Greensboro- an industrious, inventive and indomitable figure in the community. The Hill Farmstead Brewery logo is based upon the tavern's original sign. In his honor, we crafted this barleywine at the outset of our venture. It has rested, unhurriedly and undisturbed, for over 2 years in bourbon barrels from some of our favorite distilleries, absorbing the essence of its surroundings and history. Bottle conditioned for 5 months.

Ljus (837) - Quebec, CANADA - MAY 26, 2020
UPDATED: MAY 26, 2020 Apparence : Brune foncée, assez opaque, léger col brun qui s'estompe rapidement, carbonatation moyenne (donc assez prononcée pour une bière ayant passé deux ans en fut et deux de plus en bouteille).
Nez : Caramel intense, cassonade, vanille, fruits séchés que j'associe surtout aux dattes. <br Goût : Réplique du nez, plutôt sucré, peu amer, profond, pointe plus grillée en finale.
Sensation : Corps moyen-plus, chaleureuse, longueur moyenne en bouche.
Bref : Cette bière est tout simplement délicieuse. C'est sucré et intense, mais pourtant jamais collant et on ne s'en lasse pas; beau travail du fut. Ça se boit dangereusement très facilement. Une critique? J'aurais apprécié plus de successions dans les arômes; c'est assez uniforme (mais ô combien agréable dans cette uniformité!)

fiery1 (3468) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 5, 2020
UPDATED: MAR 5, 2020 500ml bottle @ home. Thanks Charles. 2016 Vintage, bottled July 11, 2018. Pours an opaque dirty brown colour with a medium tan head. Nose is delicious, a nice mix of bourbon, caramel, leather, brown sugar, and wood. Flavour carries a nice depth, rich toffee, brown sugar, and rounds out with a leathery bourbon character. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, and a moderately high sweetness with a smooth warming character. Very nice!
