Notes: Limited (brewed once) availibility. Genealogy of Morals, the name of one of our most coveted Nietzschean narratives, also happens to be our barrel-aged wheat imperial stout. After aging for more than 16 months in Privateer Rum barrels, we further conditioned the beer atop coffee from the Las Delicias farm in Huila, Colombia, owned and run by the Rojas family, and sourced and roasted by The Coffee Collective in Copenhagen, Denmark. These friends long ago changed our worldview as to what coffee could be and continue to deeply influence us here at Hill Farmstead.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Pours almost pitch black with no foam even on an aggressive pour. Consumed at cellar temp (55F) which brought out rum barrel sweetness and some spice. Taste continued with the aroma but the coffee flavor played very well (rum BA and coffee can be a great combo like in this beer). The rum sweetness did cover the chocolate flavor until almost at room temperature at which both rum barrel sweetness and the chocolate were noticeable. Medium mouthfeel (was a bit under-carbonated and flat). But, among the better rum BA + coffee imperial stouts I’ve had.

Pours two shades shy of black with ruby highlights. Nose is difficult to tease out but I definitely get some spicy notes. Taste is extremely rum forward and overshadows the coffee and cocoa. Mouthfeel is light-medium in body (closer to light and somewhat thin). Overall, decent; however, not my favorite variant. Way too rum intensive for my sensibilities.
