nitially devised in 2011 for Rome's legendary Ma Che Siete Venuti A Fà to celebrate the birth of the owner's daughter, this re-envisioned rendition of Viola Sofia honors the original while benefiting from the experiential wisdom inherent in a decade of progress. Brewed in May 2020, this imperial stout spent 15 months resting in Bourbon barrels from one of our favorite distilleries. Following ten months of rest in the bottle, this is now ready to enjoy.

Bottle pour into a taster glass.
Dark brown with thick tan lasting head. Bakers chocolate, molasses, leather, and peppercorn on the nose and palate. Barrel presence is a bit subdued. Thick mouthfeel with balanced carbonation.

I guess all the Grassroots beers will just get added back to HF over and over again
