COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
In the summer of 2013, our dear friend Menno Olivier, owner and brewer of Brouwerij De Molen, visited Hill Farmstead and collaborated on an imperial stout, which was then aged for 20 months in hand-selected 25-year-old bourbon barrels. With classic De Molen malt character, rich body, beautiful barrel notes and appropriately light carbonation, this expresses beautifully what friendship and respect can contribute when creating a beer. 375ml

375ml, $20, Released August 2015 only at Hill Farmstead Brewery

Jignore pourquoi, mais vette bouteille me tourmente depuis le jour o je lai achete. Conscient que les stouts de Shaun se bonifient considrablement avec le temps, jai choisi de donner beaucoup de temps celui-ci, bien que je nai jamaos got la bire frache. Un drle de coup de ds cest certain. Je verse. Filme huileux en surface dun liquide au corps visqueux et lourd sans quaucune mousse ne lui fasse obstruction. Je reconnais les traces de la brasserie europenne ici. Splendides armes de chocolat, de vanille boises manant dun bourbon gnreux et ample. Du marshmallow et du gateau. Tres alcoolIisee, chaude et ample, je sens une grande quantite de bourbon caramelise. Beaucoup de reconfort, beaucoup de joie!

MrHangover (4410) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JUL 9, 2016
Bottle. Pours an inky black, headless beer with the aroma of vanilla fudge, wood, caramel, molasses and licorice. Loads of bourbon notes in there. Flavor is sweet and boozy. sticky sweet molasses, sweeter bourbon boozy notes. Long, sweet aftertaste, full bodied and softly carbonated. This is an amazing brew. Great stuff.

500 ml. bottle. Pours black with a decent tan head. Aroma of malt, bourbon, chocolate, and vanilla. Taste is roasted malt, chocolate, vanilla, dark fruit, and lots of bourbon. Perhaps a bit too much bourbon. Fabulous to sip on.

Poured from a bottle. Aroma is very wood forward with some light dark fruit notes. Moderate oak notes with some light bourbon. Quite a bit of roast with some light ash notes. More bourbon as it warms. Pours oily, black with a faint, small, mocha head that disappears immediately. No lacing and moderate legs. Flavor is rich with quite a bit of dark chocolate notes. Some medium oak notes with light vanilla and almond. Medium bourbon and some light alcohol spice. Quite a bit of roast and some light leather and ash notes. Mouthfeel is full bodied with medium low carbonation. Low astringency and medium alcohol warmth. Overall, a nice beer with a lot of barrel and roast notes. Might not be everyones cup of tea, but I like all the oak and dark roast notes. Some hints of dark fruit.

12.7 oz bottle. Inky brown with tan suds. Nose is dark chocolate, espresso, plum, wood, bourbon and faint smoke. Medium body with a soft tingle finishing oily. Taste is prune, bourbon, dark roast and burnt peanut. A little musty from the barrel.

lefossoyeur (612) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 30, 2015
Pours dark Brown, almost black with no head. Intense but mellow bourbon aromas, with flowery notes and blackcurrant, almost winey. Minimal carbonation, bourbon at first, then all malts festival without roastiness, more brown malt Stout than anything. Very tasty. Long warning finale. Love. Yes.
