Pours a dense brown body, very thick dark brown head. Aroma is syrupy with coffee infused bourbon. Smooth feel, strong coffee mixes perfectly with bourbon, low roasted flavor profile.

Genealogy of Morals, batches 1 & 2.

The beer appears dark brown, near black, with a thin, bubbly, tan head. The aroma offers oak, vanilla, bourbon, roast, chocolate. Lighter in body than the Madeira version. brighter on the palate as well. Wow, super easy to drink. Moderate to soft carbonation with bourbon and dark chocolates. Delicious!

A: I split the bottle with a friend. Poured into a pint glass, the body is black with a small brown head.

S: Bourbon is clearly noted, along with modest roasted barley malt. Pleasant, not too heavy on the bourbon.

T: Nice balance of roasty barley malt, bourbon and chocolate malt.

M: Medium- to full-bodied in heft.

O: Great stuff. Thanks to MRMOJORISIN for the road trip to Hill Farmstead that allowed us to try so many great beers.

500ml bottle with pressure cap.

bottle date of 10/2013.

Split 3 ways with my local beer crew into 3 HF Wine Stems.

Appearance:black bodied beer with thin brown cap from a moderately hard pour.

Smell:Milk chocolate bomb mixing with bourbon, dry oak, moderate roast, and light smoke notes. Overall the beer is a more sweet smelling dessert stout.

Taste: Milk chocolates, fudge, and caramel; rich, but mellow top shelf bourbon, vanilla beans, marshmellow, and coconut. Maybe a hint of coffee, but it seems like an after thought rather than being a pronounced flavor in this beer. Smoke comes out in the aftertaste. Such flawless balance and integration from this stout. All the flavors of this stout are deep, rich, and complex.

Mouthfeel: medium bodied beer with low carbonation. Perfect amount of bubbles that make this stout creamy and lucious; coating the palate after the first sip. Very very smooth drinking stout. Not a hint of booze at all.

Overall: This is definately my favorite BA stout from Hill Farmstead. The balance and deep complexity with a near flawless mouthfeel makes this a world class stout.
