COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Fear and Trembling was Hill Farmsteads first collaboration a Baltic Porter brewed with malt that was hand smoked over maple wood by our Danish friend, and former colleague, Anders Kissmeyer. This version was a rebrew of Batch #4 in our brewery...and was aged for many weeks in stainless steel. As a student of philosophy and former resident of Copenhagen, it is fitting that our brewer named our first collaboration after Denmarks great thinker: Sren Kierkegaard. All three contemplated absurdity, faith, and salvation while wandering the shores of the Baltic Sea

continue to work out your salvation with fear and trembling

Note: This is stainless steel fermentation, no barrel treatment (released 2013 and late 2015)

500ml bottle tonight at the tasting at SteveOJs.. Pours dark mahogany brown with red highlights when held to a light.. meaty smoky notes on the nose translate perfectly to the palate... beef jerky and peat smoky notes.. umami is the name of the game here.... Painfully average, nothing new here.

Boutip (6131) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 16, 2016
Bottle: Poured a deep black color porter with a nice dark brown foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of roasted malt with light coffee notes is quite nice. Taste is a nice mxi between some roasted malt, light lactose notes with some nice dry floral coffee notes with light smoky undertones. Body is light with good carbonation. Great beer and nice balance to avoid the smoke notes form overshadowing the other flavours.

Garrold (4781) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 31, 2015
Bottle, picked up at the brewery. Very dark brown. Thin, dense, lasting, tan head. Leggy. Viscous. Looks as good as it gets. Nose has savoury smoke. Bit of Kempke bacon in there. Some wood smoke. Vine fruits. Taste is smoky sweet. Pretty bitter, in a fruity kind of way. Soft, creamy smooth palate. 9%? Really? Finishes smooth, fruity, smoky sweet, with a rising bitter close. Nowhere near my preferred style of beer, but this is undeniably good.

Didn't care for this honestly. Was kinda metallic and bitter like nickel or something. Bad bottle maybe? ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
