Mac comes through with the pre-hurricane growler! What better way to ride out Hurricane Sandy than with a fresh growler from Hill Farmstead?
Deep brown body, nearly opaque. Fluffy dark tan head, excellent retention and lace, all of which are par for the course for a Hill Farmstead brew.
Aroma is exceedingly dry, and yields only a hint of cinnamon. Other than that, it smells like a regular robust porter without extra ingredients. Surprisingly minimal roast and spices here; this isn't what I expect from HF.
Fortunately, everything shows up on my palate. Predominantly roasty malt layered with smooth vanilla, leaving a lingering cinnamon flavor in the back of my throat. Coffee is the weakest of the flavors, and I'd like a more coffee-forward profile here.
Pretty sure I prefer Everett to Twilight of the Idols as it stands. I like this combination of flavors moreso in theory than in this particular beer. Perhaps the next batch will be better?
Serving type: growler
