500ml bottle purchased at the brewery. Poured into HF glass, served slightly below cellar temperature.
A- Pours a dark jet black with about a finger's worth of light mocha creamy head that has decent retention but fades to a very thin layer and leaves some spotty lacing. Nice consistent carbonation.
S- Coffee, vanilla, cinnamon, a tiny bit of nutmeg, nice aroma strength. Aromas are extremely well balanced with the coffee and cinnamon blending very well together and neither dominating.
T- Light coffee with creamy vanilla and a hint of subtle cinnamon on the finish. Very well balanced and nice level of spices without anything that dominates too much. Very flavorful.
M- Medium bodied, pretty average body for a porter, nice carbonation for a porter, very easy to drink.
O- This was another fantastic porter from Hill Farmstead. Twilight was very flavorful and extremely well balanced. In my opinion the subtle spices and vanilla were perfect in this beer and it was very easy to drink. Overall I like the chocolate and coffee that come out a little bit more in Everett (the vanilla takes a little bit of that away), but this is also a fantastic porter that I'm glad they are making a regular seasonal offering. I definitely recommend trying it out.
