Reviewed from notes. Shared with the lady of the house and our good pal, Rake. Thanks to RSchaeffer for always coming through.

Drank while listing to Gorgoroth's Twilight of the Idol's. Crushingly appropriate.

Grower was filled to the point of nearly overflowing, full is a good descriptor of it's condition. Mocha colored bubbles arose from the glass and a delicious aroma of sweet chocolate and vanilla wafers followed. Almost black in color with just the slightest hint of light making it's way at the beer's edges. More aromas of burnt sugar, fresh brewed coffee, toasted bread and a little bit of charcoal. Insanely inviting.

The first sip was full of a harmonious balance of sweetened chocolate ganache, espresso, raisins, vanilla beans and black pepper. Quite amazing, the balance of richness with the drying finished left me speechless. The charred flavor of the darkened malts tied everything together and made for one seamless drinking experience.

Unreal. The subtle flavors and the sheer level of rounded integration of each component was just remarkable. These beers speak so softly and yet they say so much. I swear it, my bags are nearly packed, I'm just about ready to drop everything and lurk in the woods around Hill Farmstead with hopes for more tastes of these beers. World class for sure.
