Hill Farmstead tap takeover at Parker Pie Nov. 16 2013

A-wonderful dark brown, off-black color
S-coffee, cinnamon, roasted malts, hardly noticeable vanilla
T-this is where the beer lost it for me. Everett is probably my favorite porter, and I went into this beer with expectations that I would enjoy it more than Everett, but the cinnamon killed it for me. very light coffee taste and the cinnamon is light as well but the combination of the two just didn't work for me.
M-Rich, smooth chocolatey-coffee taste, some spiciness, hardly noticeable booze
O-I liked the beer, and it's fun for a seasonal release, but it isn't my new favorite porter like I had hoped

Overall 98/100

Absolutely lights out, I think of it as a KBS light, which says something as its not barrel aged. Also it was even more sessionable. Once I got to the end of the Growler, I savored every last drop. Currently (11/26/13) my all time favorite brew.
