4.65/5 rDev +14%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75
Poured from HF 2l growler
darkest brown almost black, .5" head that quickly released to a few bubbles.
Smell of coffee, roasted malts, dark chocolate
Taste is smooth like any HF beer, clean coffee, chocolate, slight bitterness in a coffee way, really cocao forward, but all smooth.
Big mouth feel after that slick sip. HF Beers are ridiculously easy to drink. Perhaps it's the freshness and the balance of flavor profiles. This is creamy and delicious.
Overall, George is a destroyer of American Brown Ale. I almost think people rate this so low because it is a brown, an 'unpopular' style. This is a perfectly distinguished beer. Get you some before it disappears.

A. Deep dark brown. Simple as that. Light tan head forms nicely, fades mostly, and laces heavily.
S. Minerally, a little roasty, medium caramel malt.
T. Roasty, minerally robust, earthy, a slight hoppy bite
M. Farily light, but carries a solid enough backbone, a crisp bite of carbonation, a little bitter hop tang.
O. Simple, but simply perfectly done. It doesn't excite me but it nails the style down nicely.

On tap at Blackback Pub in Waterbury, VT. One pint poured into a Hill Farmstead stemmed glass today, 2/10/2014.
App- Dark cola brown with a one finger medium brown head with good retention. Some lacing.
Smell- Brown sugar malt sweetness, caramel and a little bit of roast undertones.
Flavour- Caramel, toffee, brown sugar, a little bit of molasses. Fairly sweet but it is cut by the right amount of earthy bitterness. Not terribly complex but quite good.
Mouthfeel- Medium-full bodied, perfectly carbonated, easily drinkable. 6% ABV is nowhere to be found. Aftertaste is an espresso-like earthy, roasty bitterness that cuts the sweetness.
Overall- It's a very good brown ale. The style is nothing super special or variable, and this is no exception. No need to take a trip to the moon to get this beer, but if it happens to be available when you want a brown ale, then it's definitely a good one to drink.
Serving type: on-tap
