4/5 rDev -10.5%
500ml bottle out of my Hill Farmstead stemware.
A- Pitch black with a nice dark mocha colored head. Pretty standard for the style.
S- Smells of chocolate and bourbon, hints of vanilla and coffee. a little bit of heat on the nose but pretty well balanced. It does smell a bit sweet...
T- Holy crap this is sweet. While it does taste of chocolate and vanilla, I am a bit overwhelmed by the sweetness. The malt is somewhat lost in the bourbon and sweetness that primarily comes through.
M- Carbonation is pretty solid, could be a bit thicker. For the style it is definitely a bit thin.
O- This is the first Hill Farmstead beer that has let me down in a while. While it is certainly tasty, it lacks the balance and complexity I've come to know from Hill Farmstead. Borders on cloyingly sweet at times, but does integrate the bourbon nicely. The base beer just gets a bit lost behind the barrel.
