From tap at the brewery. Pours dark brown with a creamy, dense and tan head. Aroma is solid hoppy with a dark roasted malt in addition. Bone dry, breadish and dark roasted malty. Bitter and citrusy finish. Lingering hoppy and dry finish. Nice. Leighton (21083) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 28, 2016
Growler from the brewery. Pours deep brown with a hefty, frothy mocha head. Great snout, with some burnt pine, cocoa and lightly charred brown bread. Medium sweet flavor with notes of silky chocolate, moderate burnt earth, pine, floral hops, orange rind and a little grapefruit. Medium bodied with fine, massaging carbonation. Finishes with burnt sugars, more toast, bittersweet baking cocoa, burnt brown bread, light resinous pine, more floral notes, grassy and rindy citrus bitterness. An excellent CDA from top to bottom. mcberko (17178) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 24, 2012
750mL growler, sent from Glouglouburp (thanks Dany!), pours black with a medium beige head. Aroma of lots of roasted malt mixed with citrusy and piney hops, maybe a slight wheat quality, but it smells typical of a black IPA. Flavour is like a wheat version of a black IPA, with roasted malt and citrus hops, overlaid with wheat / hay and some rye somehow without muting the roasty / hoppy notes. Finishes with a rye finish. Wouldn’t have thought this concept would be too great, but count on Hill Farmstead to exceed your expectations. jtclockwork (16436) - , New Jersey, USA - NOV 9, 2015

On tap at Capone’s. Brown pour with a small sized off white head. Lacing left on the glass. Aromas of chocolate, lighter roast, and some earthiness. Tastes of the same. deyholla (11486) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - FEB 25, 2012
Fliptop shared by Kan. Pours a near clear deep brown with a grayish brown head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a combination of roast malts, coffee and pine hops. Flavor has a good amount of pine hops that is backed by a bit of roast and dark grains. hopscotch (11044) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 1, 2016
Growler... Pours clear and brown with burnt-orange highlights and a small, creamy, off-white head. The aroma is both dank and roasty. Medium-bodied with tickling carbonation. The flavor is roasty and dank with a moderate degree of burnt bitterness. Finishes flat and fairly bland with only a petite ration of lingering bitterness. Whatever. It’s a black IPA in a growler. A style I don’t like in a vessel that’s always questionable beyond five days. Flawlessly brewed as always. Bottle courtesy of ctipping!
