Style: American Imperial Stout

Alcohol by volume (ABV): not listed

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
Beyond Good and Evil is one of Nietzsche’s most powerful works, challenging conventional wisdom and urging us transcend good and evil while confronting the very nature of knowledge. This challenge both informs and inspires our work.

Beyond Good and Evil is also the name of our bourbon barrel-aged maple imperial sweet stout. Brewed in May of 2012, we crafted this beer with a touch of Vermont maple syrup and then allowed it to rest quietly and contentedly in hand-selected bourbon barrels for over 18 months.

375 bottle shared by Dan (@1up), thanks!

Not much head. Sweet flavor, but not a thick mouthfeel. Not a ton of barrel either. Good but not world class.

On draft at Hill Farmstead. Reminds me of a more refined Morning Delight. It doesn’t smack you in the face with maple like MD. I am a really big fan.

The beer pours Pitch Black with a medium khaki head. It has low carbonation. The beer smells of maple syrup, baker’s chocolate, molasses, caramel, and bourbon. It tastes of baker’s chcolate, maple syrup, molasses, caramel, with some bourbon heat. The feel is thick, but smooth on the back end. A good barrel aged stout from Hill Farmstead, pretty light on the maple.

Fantastic beer. Dark brown to black appearance. Aromas are of sweet cocoa/bourbon/maple stout. Flavors are same. Very sweet, but not cloyingly so. Super pillowy soft mouthfeel. Perfect dessert beer. Would certainly revisit this!
