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)

TURDFERGUSON (4055) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - FEB 28, 2013
Bottle shared by Leighton on the bus at RBWG. Another new HF beer and from the dude who now lives across the big pond! I will take it. The base beer for those early baltic porter treatments, I did not realize this beer existed ; so it makes sense that its a new beer as I can see here in the CD. Pours a muddy dark brown with a small yellow tan head, nice lacing as always with HF. Nose is dark chocolate, smoke is there but not overpowering, light roast, coffee. Flavor is similar, more easy drinking and BP-like than a smoke beer which is fine by me (not that i dont like the smoke! I do I do! )
