Onto Earl, Hill Farmsteads oatmeal stout. I am a huge coffee lover and therefore a huge coffee stout and coffee porter lover. Growler obtained at Hill Farmstead on Saturday December 29th
A- earl pours a massive opaque body with a mocha head of foam that elevates over the body of the brew from the pour. A rich chocolate latte cover remains as the subsiding occurs. Good lacing on the edges with a dark glow seems to be positioning this brew as a big time coffee rush
S- a rush of coffee beans and a delicious flakes oat scent is immediately dispensed from the head. Some chocolate and mocha flavors are evident in the background along with a bitter hop scent with is a delight. I even get a slight vanilla theme that rounds it off as some cream in the coffee feeling
T- Nailed it!!!! Bitter coffee flavors are enhanced with the chocolate and oatmeal flavors I seek out. There is no question Shaun concentrated on utilizing the coffee component to enhance the stout instead of relying on just the flaked outs. There are some mean beans in this brew. Not to mention the sweet vanilla flavors as well as some excellent roasty flavor
M- smooth and creamy simultaneously. furthermore, there is a bitter and roasty flavor happening
O- again, this is what I look for in a coffee stout. An all out assault on coffee flavors. In my opinion, this is the best coffee stout I have had since wake n bake. I wish I could do a side by side with these two.

Poured on tap at Farmhouse in Burlington.
Pours jet black with dark caramel head half a finger high.
Aromas are insane. Incredible roasted malts and coffee and mild caramel sweetness.
Tastes just a incredible as aromas, but even more so. Complex, round flavor of roasted coffee, roasted malts, full flavor.
Mouthfeel is full and smooth.
A wonderful oatmeal coffee stout. More than wonderful, incredible.

Huge fan of this beer. Had on tap and in growlers.
Deep brown/black color with a medium sized, tan head with nice lacing. Aroma is nicely roasted malts, coffee, caramel, and light chocolate. Medium body with highly complex, mature flavors of roasted malts, coffee, cocoa and the perfect touch of hops.
Pleasantly reminiscent of Mikkeller Beer Geek or the Olbutikken Porter, this is a staple beer in my fridge the last few months.

On tap at the 3Penny this past weekend.
A beautiful pitch black with a coffee head, pristine in elegance in the tulip.
Roasted barley and coffee aromas, luscious malt. The taste confirms and enhances upon the smell. The rich creaminess of the oats is the bed for the roasted flavor to lie upon. Laps of luxury from the glass. Beautiful creamy mouthfeel without any acridness from the roast at all. Terrifically balanced.

Growler from Glouglouburp- thanks again Dany! Pours opaque cola with frothy two finger head. Huge delicious coffee nose, slight chocolate, but mostly just unbelievable coffee. Taste- a juicy tart twang from the oatmeal, slight bitterness, and tons of fresh roasted coffee . Fantastic. Drinkability is off the charts. Very light bodied but yet the flavour profile is amazing and the freshness of the coffee really shiines through. HF really nailed this
