Tap. Dark brown pour with a nice mocha head. Brown sugar, coffee, roast. Medium body with nice carbonation. Long brown sugar finish. Nice but expected a bit more

Just was not a fan of this. A bit on the watery side, and some medicinal lingering finish to go along with it. A rare miss from these guys for me.

MacBoost (1791) - Penfield, New York, USA - APR 22, 2015
Tap at Hill Farmstead. Light brown pour, slightly cloudy. Aromas of light roast, caramel and a touch of coffee. Taste is roasty and mildly bitter. Finished kind of sweet with a thin body. This is a huge letdown and very pedestrian. Probably the first HF beer I wouldnt bother with again.

Oh que cette bire est dangereuse... Lgre, complexe et savoureuse souhait, il nest que trop facile de baisser la garde et den abuser. George prsente une tte riche, persistante et fire sous laquelle le liquide est dun brun grill. Les armes de malts rtis, caf, vanille et ssame grill sont fraches et nobles. En bouche, la texture est soyeuse et le liquide coule avec fracheur et dlicatesse. Aux notes de malts, sajoutent la noisette torrfie et un houblon dune fracheur printanire qui confre une agrable touche herbace cet heureux mlange. La densit est moyenne mais ma satisfaction totale!

Franckg (1386) - Trois-Rivires, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 23, 2015
Armes intenses de noisettes. Ceux-ci reviennent en bouche et donne un gout amer trs intense. Rapidement, des touches de chocolat au lait et de houblons prennent leur place. Lamertume est forte et sche et le got de chocolat persiste sur la langue. Pas la meilleure de HF mais une excellente bire tout de mme et une des meilleures que jai essaye dans le genre.

jnortonvt (49) - Essex Jct., Vermont, USA - JAN 10, 2015
Purchased growler from brewery. Pours a frothy head. Aroma is sweeter than I was expecting. Was thinking about something more of a Newcastle when I think Brown Ale as far as taste but this is way stronger and much more complex. Noticing strong coffee taste with lesser touches of toffee and caramel. Leaves bitter, lingering aftertaste.

Clownoisseur (430) - Buchanan, Michigan, USA - NOV 25, 2014
Pours from growler a light brown, slightly transparent. Small tan head. Aromas of roasted nut, milk chocolate, faint earthy hops. Taste is balanced with roast, sweet malt, oat, powder cocoa mix and lightly bitter hops. Nice ale.

Minderbinder (3422) - Qubec, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 20, 2014
Growler 750ml. Thx Czar. Pours muddy brown with low beige head. Aroma is of malt, fruits, wood, sugar. Taste is of wood, roasted malt, some acidity, some bitterness. Palate: medium body. Soft carbonation. Overall: Pretty good, tasty. Nice malt features. Almost refreshing. Conditions of rating were not top notch: I hope I rate this one again soon.
