500 ml in a tulip glass with Three Lions.
Appearance: dark very dark with a caramel head.
Smell and taste: almost perfect chocolate, light smoke, vanilla, clotted cream deliciousness. Can't say enough about it.
Mouthfeel: like the perfect woman...velvety smooth, mysterious without being pretentious, sultry without being dirty. What a beer!!!
Overall: A 10!! What did Travis Tritt sing about trashy women? This is that beer. A little dirty but in a respectful way. You feel guilty drinking it because it's above you. Like catching a 10 when you should only get a 4 or 5.

Had Twilight, this one maybe better; I feel like the nuances are not as pronounced through the barrel aging.
A- Dark, nice dark look to this porter. Thin lacing, nothing too special for me on the A
S- Charred dark fruit/ pretty standard for a HF dark brew here. Lots of belgian dark qualities. Fig, etc. Barrel is way in the back but more forefront than tiny microbrew's attempts.
T- Follows the nose with dark fruit and fig combined with barrel aging. It is a great porter; I gave it great grades, but nothing mindblowing. Pretty standard to HF belgian dark qualities
M- Mouthfeel is the highlight for me. Nice and smooth and creamy. Just the right touch of carb in this.
O- A great BA porter, but nothing that made me inch closer to me bowing to HF, which a few BA friends are nudging me to do.
