Growler thanks to Will. Pours a dark brown with small beige head that lasts. The aroma is strong toffee, nuts, raisins. Medium mouthfeel with bready malt, toffee, light roast, very good.

Minderbinder (3460) - 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.

manuelMTL (240) - Montral, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 19, 2014
Pours a dark brown with almost no head. Nose is nutty with coffee notes and a touch of dark fruits. A great smooth coffee taste in the mouth. Strong malt body, nuttiness, and some residual sugars. Medium carbonation. Tasty beer, but by far not the best from Hill Farmstead!

UPDATED: NOV 24, 2014 growler from mathieuc, many thanks bro! pours unclear medium dark brown, dark mahogany, with a small reviving light beige cap, nice lacing. nutty, fruity and nicely browned maltiness - great malt depth, very woodsy if not woody, earthy and citrus touch, minerals - hfs minerality, maple syrup touch without its sweetness, hint of smoked caramel - never overwhelming. light carbonation, light body - oily, dry grassy-spicy-woodsy finish. great brown ale!

Draft to taster at HF. Looks good; a translucent brown with light beige head. Smells and tastes of dark malt, chocolate, and hops with a solid mouthfeel. Enjoyable.

tectactoe (3125) - Michigan, USA - NOV 10, 2014
Growler: Pretty dark brown on the pour, almost black actually, with mild translucency towards the edges. Nice gray & khaki head on top; quite foamy, frothy, & slow to recede fully. Sticky lacing. Aroma of light roast, cocoa powder, tinted caramel malts, mild earth, hints of milky chocolate, & a touch of sweetness that opens up with a little warmth. Flavor has a nice baseline of that semi-milky cocoa flavor with a timid undercurrent of roasted malt. Bigger hop presence on the palate, a little leafy, ashy, & grassy. Still not as hoppy as many others claim. Mild earthy bitterness mid-palate, leading into a finish of toast, faint pine, roasted cocoa beans, & just a small kiss of grapefruit peel. Get a little bit of that sweet underbelly, too. All around, a super-balanced brown ale, quite nice.

brokensail (16328) - Dublin, California, USA - NOV 7, 2014
On tap @ Beachwood Brewing. Dark cola pour with a khaki head. Very chocolate forward and roasty. Coffee, cocoa powder, and earthy hops. Nice nutty quality, too. Slight bitterness of coffee and roast. A whole lot of coffee and chocolate. Very earthy and leafy. Hints of hazelnut and vanilla. Solid brown ale, bro.

Taster at HF. Brown, light/med mouthfeel. Aroma has some earthy notes. Nice grassy hops too. Taste is similar with some good malts in the background.

kathouse (1748) - LAS VEGAS, Nevada, USA - AUG 10, 2014
On tap at The Reservoir. Pours reddish brown with an off white foam. Nuts, toast, and light toffee flavors. Aroma is more hop forward, but this drinks like a good brown ale.
