Notes/Commercial Description:
Damon (1993-2004) The time spent with loved ones, now lost, seems to affect our mind and body perpetually: memories happen upon us, unsuspectingly, and bring about tears of fond remembrance. Damon was our brother – devout and patient in an age of busyness and distraction. In his honor, we crafted and conditioned this Imperial Stout in bourbon barrels from our favorite distillery. We still reflect, daily, upon our Damon and his scruffy chin of grey – of his loyalty and his love.

Aged in Blanton's bourbon barrels.

A - dark black, not a much head, yet incredibly inviting.

S - Lots of bourbon and booze! Dark smooth malt on the nose.

T - Very nice and smooth bourbon taste. Very little sweetness but it fits well. Goes down so easy and smooth. Such a solid brew! Wish I had more!

M - A little alcohol burn, thick body, very little alcohol burn, I could handle walking around all day with a mouthful of this brew!

O - This is a perfect beer! Absolutely loved it! Well done brewers at Hill Farmstead, well done.
