BEER INFO

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

Style: American Porter

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.50%

Availability: Winter

Notes / Commercial Description:
Twilight of the Idols is our winter porter. We brew Twilight each autumn, with a touch of locally roasted coffee and cinnamon, and age it on a blend of select vanilla beans. Originally conceived with a friend in 2009 while brewing in Denmark, the name of this annual release is inspired by the title of one of the last texts written by one of our philosophical idols, Friedrich Nietzsche.

Poured from the bottle into stemmed HF glass.
Pours near jet black with one finger of khaki head that dissipates.
Aromas are a lot of roasted malt, some sweetness and some coffee notes.
Flavor is green (this is a bottle 3 weeks old). Feel the beer needs to age for a bit here. Raw coffee bean and roasted porter.
Mouthfeel was excellent.
Overall really lovely beer but needs time to age and mellow.
