ctipping (1811) - Florida, USA - SEP 3, 2015
500 mL bottle poured into a snifter. 2011 bottle. Originally reviewed 3/15/2013. Viscous black with brown edges. No head. Big mocha bubbles, though. Bourbon and coffee blend nicely in the nose. Vanilla. The coffee has a nice earthy character. Not a lot of porter comes through, but it doesnt matter much. Nice bourbon and vanilla flavors. Lots of coffee. Reminiscent of KBS in its earthy coffee flavor. Milk chocolate with a slight winey finish. Heavy. Viscous for a porter, although thats arguable. Very low carbonation. So it isnt as magical as I had hoped, but its still damn good. Remarkably good, but the bar that Hill Farmstead has set for itself makes me feel the slightest disappointment when the beer isnt perfection.

Bottle shared by a friend. Darkest brown pour with a medium tan head. Aroma of dark fruit, chocolate and molasses. Malty flavor with dark fruit before a chocolatey finish. Not picking up on the coffee, spice or barrel. Still tasty though.
