On tap at Gingerman in NYC
Appearance was likely altered because it was the end of the keg. Huge foam that was equal in size to the half pour.
The cinnamon and vanilla really come through but at the same time don't overpower the taste one expects from a porter. Tastes like winter in a glass.
Very drinkable for something dark and 7.5%. Since I got the last pour from the keg it was only about 6oz or so and I wish I had the opportunity to order 2 or 3 glasses because it was going down very easily.
One of the best beers I've ever had, just wish there was more of it!

Hill Farmstead Twighlight Of the Idols
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.

On tap and in growler from the brewery, the flavors vary slightly between the two tastings in interesting ways.
It pours a rich, dark brown with a tan head, dissipating slowly into a nice thin foam. Aroma on tap is slightly sharper with a bit more coffee, while from a growler it was a little more vanilla balanced with the coffee.
Taste is outstanding both on tap and in growler, with medium sweet malt backbone, a touch of hop bitterness and coffee, vanilla and just a hint of the cinnamon in the finish, with no discernible alcohol or indication of its ABV. Carbonation is on the money for the style, and it's full bodied without being heavy.
Exceedingly well balanced, this is a wonderful beer.

Poured from a 750ml Growler. Thanks to Mike for bringing it back from his Vermont road trip.
Barely a wisp of foam on this one. Not really much carbonation but it still has fantastic color and just a hint of a ring of caramel head.
Smells slightly of cocoa, vanilla and coffee. Beautiful aromas that mix really well together. There is just a little bit of spice lurking in there too.
Well balanced flavors that echo the aromas. Velvety but lighter in body at the same time. Ever sip lasts for a minute or two on the tongue. I can't shake the little flavor on the finish that reminds me of gingerbread. This is just decadent without being overdone and artificial.
Man this is just a fantastic beer, totally worth the expectations. Too bad I have to wait for folks to drive north to get a second growler of this one.
