Thanks to Matt C for this one as an extra. Poured into a Hill Farmstead stemmed glass today, 11/26/2013, at our latest tasting.

Review #299.

Typical imperial stout appearance- opaque, black and viscous. Not much head, not much lacing.

Smells like a good imperial stout should. Lots of umami, along with a nice roast malt presence. Its clearly not barrel-aged, but there is so much chocolate and a hint of bitter coffee in the malts. Above average for sure.

Tastes like a lot of umami mixed in with some roast malts. Not super complex, but this beer screams Imperial Stout immediately. Lots of roasty chocolate malts behind this beer. Not bitter at all.

Medium to full bodied, good carbonation. Aftertaste is a fair umami flavor that I enjoyed savoring after each sip.

More than a very solid imperial stout, I can see how this would age really well with some barrel treatment. Recommend everyone to try this before trying the specific barrel-aged variants.
