BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Hill Farmstead Brewery
Vermont, United States
hillfarmstead.com

Style: American Double / 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.

Vintage 2014. Properly cellared since the release.

A: Dark pour with medium head and heavy lacing. Filtrates remain in the beer, which takes away from its overall appearance.

S: Chocolate, barrel, and sweet maple sugar. The nose on the bottled version was slightly muted.

T: This beer is basically Damon, sweetened with adequate levels of Vermont maple syrup. It tastes great; the flavor does not change a great deal between cellar and room temperature.

F: Thick with low carbonation.

O: This vintage is superior to the 2016 growler-only release in depth and complexity. It is a fantastic beer. I would have enjoyed a more aggressive maple syrup flavor and greater carbonation, but this brew was terrific.
