L: Pitch black with a foamy, sticky brown head. Superb lacing, some of the best I have ever seen. Served in Hill Farmsteads long-stem tulip glass.
A: Rich coffee, caramel, and melanoidins with some gentle earthy hops. A nice dark fruit character, some malty breadiness, and soft fruity esters round this beer out. A very soft and rich aroma.
T/M: Smooth bitterness and coffee and chocolate malt flavors take the front, moves into rich caramel and melanoidins with some soft earthy hops. The body is full and the carbonation soft, allowing the flavors to strike perfect balance for a long savory finish.
Overall, an amazing beer. By no means is this to style, much to strong and much to different, but it is one of the most delicious dark beers I have ever tasted. It is very much like a strong Doppelbock hybridized with a Robust Porter. The flavors are soft and rich, and the bitterness and mouthfeel provide perfect balance. Hill Farmstead has blown me away.
