BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Hill Farmstead Brewery
Vermont, United States

Style: American Double / Imperial Stout

Alcohol by volume (ABV): not listed

Availability: Limited (brewed once)

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.

This is an interesting beer in an interesting category. Basically a chocolate and maple bomb, supplemented by some decent bourbon heat but not as much bourbon flavor as I usually like. Oak comes out more. Milky and rich with toffee, caramel, and slight molasses flavor. Not much roast or coffee and slightly thin on the mouthfeel.

Hard to rate for me. Basically liquid chocolate bourbon maple candy. Very sweet but not as cloying to me as Chocolate Rain or Black Tuesday. Delicious in its own way but the sweetness and lack of bourbon and coffee/roast starts to take a toll. Gave half to my wife after an initial attempt at taking it to the face. IMO, far better than the Faystons I have had but not in the same realm as beers like Maple Bacon Coffee Porter and KBBS. Have not had Mornin Delight but doubt it approaches that either from the reviews. Definitely worth seeking out but definitely best split with others.
