Huge thanks to mulder1010 for opening this up. 500ml, bottle 638 of 864, 2011 vintage.
Pours a not quite black, dark with a tan head of foam that falls and leaves tears on the side of the Great Divide tulip.
Smell is rich, with bourbon, chocolate, vanilla and oak, coconut and toasted coconut all there. Nothing too over the top, all mingling well and still able to get both the base beer and the effect of the barrel.
Tastes of chocolate, some vanilla, coconut with a touch of bourbon and oak that keep it ticking along nicely.
No booze, beautiful coating mouthfeel. Not the thickest body, but what is there coats your mouth amazing well, yet has you back and ready for another sip not too long afterwards.
First Hill Farmstead beer and went into it with great expectations. It still managed to excel, brilliant. Massively enjoyable. Refined, tasty and great balance. Very enjoyable to drink. Hats off to mulder1010 for this! One amazing brew.

A- Pours a dark brown to a light black in color with small carbonation barley a finger head.
S- This baby smell of the finest bourbon in the world with fresh smell of vanilla and oak tannins even a slight of roasty scent.
T- Aww pure heaven with the flavors of good bourbon , vanilla , honey and caramel that so sticky goodness. Even had hint of light milk chocolate taste in the aftertaste.
M- This have a nice smooth to velvety goodness that just wraps around the tounge and just clinging on every minute.
O- This is one hell of beer. IMO it ranks with the best and should climb the latter pretty fast. This is a must try beer. Cheers....
