On draft, from notes so calm down Shaun. Beer is black with a tan head, wispy, spotty lacing, some light carbonation, some retention.

Aroma is chocolate, sweet, alcohol, some fudge and sugar.

Beer is medium to big in body, sweet and chocolate, fudge and mild rye. I don't know if there is some rye in here but I get some of the acidity from the rye in the finish. A great beer. I'd have it again if that were possible.

On tap at the Hill Farmstead First Anniversary Party. Served in a Hill Farmstead long-stem tulip.

Pours a deep, dark black color with a nice mocha head and a bit of spotty lacing on the sides as it goes down. The nose carries loads and loads of chocolate. Good coffee and roasted malt in the background as well. Heavy fudge and a bit of sweet malt. Really rich chocolate flavor in the taste, like a dark chocolate fudge bar. The rye is not extremely noticeable, but definitely makes an appearance in the flavor and more so in the feel. Really full body without any alcohol. Really creamy. Absolutely outstanding brew.

Served on-tap at Capone's during the Hill Farmstead party during Philly Beer Week. A rare treat for sure.

A - Pours dark as night black with a small half finger tall tan head leaving spotty lacing down the glass.

S - Smells of chocolate, smokey dark malt, rye spice, coffee, and a faint hint of booze. Lots going on with everything remaining well balanced.

T - Plenty of smokey dark roast up front slowly giving way to a mix of chocolate, coffee grounds, rye spice, and a touch more smokey malt. Finish had lots of dark roast, lingering for some time. This was quite complex yet enjoyable. Glad I got this one.

M - Heavy body and flavor with moderate carbonation. Rich, tick, feel with plenty of lingering roast in the finish. Lots of flavor without being overpowering, very nice.

O - Good stuff. Like I said it has lots of things going on within its dark core but they all remain balanced. A very well rounded stout. Glad I made the drive down for this event!

On tap at capones.

A- no real head upon arivail just a coffee and cream color wisp on top of a pitch black brew.

S- loads of dark chocolate and coffee from the heaily roasted malts with some fudgey goodness. Some burnt brwon sugar and molasses but to a lesser extent.

T- lots of sweetness with the heavy roast giveing each the counter point they need. Rich hersheys syrup and some condesned milk. The coffee is very bold and keeps popping its head in. The rye brings in an interesting spicy hit that's different then a lot of the stouts out there. Cocoa powder and dark toased bread touch. Long roasty and sweet finish.

M- full bodied and a good sticky chew to it with a carb on the lighter side of things that let's the brew sit and sink in. Super smooth and creamy

O- very nice stout and so smooth you can almost forget how big it is. Another great beer from hill farmstead.
