Draft at Fools Gold for their Hill Farmstead event, 2/20/16.
Dark brown color. Lots of coffee and roast with a bit of spice. Vanilla sweetness balances it out a bit. Fairly rich overall, but with an easy drinkingness to it as well that just really works. Nice mix of flavors, really good feel. Just a very tasty and enjoyable beer.

BiiruBierBeer (1022) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - FEB 20, 2016
Smells like coffee grounds and a bit of marshmallow. Taste is super roasty coffee with a nice aftertaste of chocolate. Medium body, medium carbonation, and low foam.

Mr_Abner (370) - Michigan, USA - FEB 16, 2016
Bottle. Pours black with an ample, mocha head. Messy lacing coats the glass after a few sips, slowly receding head.becomes a soft ring around the glass. Aromas of cocoa, roasted malts, alcohol, scant vanilla. A medium bitterness that builds and lasts well into the finish, a light to light+ sweetness underneath. Mouthfeel is great. Medium bodied and creamy with soft carbonation. Some cinnamon spiciness creeps up in the finish, but it is subtle. Bitter finish.

UPDATED: JUN 1, 2016 Bottle @ Mikkeller bar, Aarhus. Black pour with a frothy light tan head. Notes of caramel, light roast, light bitter coffee, some vanilla and light spice. A bit dull. Rerate: Tap @ Mikkeller Bar, Aarhus. Spices and vanilla a bit more prominent this time. Nice and balanced!

thepatrickman (1192) - Durham, New Hampshire, USA - FEB 9, 2016
This is one of the best porters Ive ever had. The mouthfeel is so full and smooth that it makes you think that it almost makes you think youre drinking a cream soda, which is really nicely amplified by the vanilla. The coffee and roasted malts play together well, and it makes for a rich, full, delightful porter -- another knockout from HF.

Lukasmh (780) - Aarhus, DENMARK - JAN 31, 2016
Bottle, 2yr old. Pours pitch black with big tan head. Aroma is very straight forward porter alike. Roast malts, chocolate, licorice, burnt malt. Taste is sweet, caramel, light vanilla, light spice. Creamy mouthfeel. Smooth and balanced, but boring. Dry finish.
