Hill Farmstead Brewery
Vermont, United States

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 a 500 mL bottle into a HF stemmed glass. This was bottled 11/2013.

Appearance: Pours a deep hazelnut/brown and leaves a finger of tan head.

Smell: Coffee leads the way with some mild cinnamon, cocoa, roasted malts and vanilla right there. Also some mild dark fruits.

Taste: Plenty of cinnamon, roasted malts, coffee and dark chocolate accompany a nice, rich vanilla profile.

Mouth-feel: Low carbonation with a medium body, slightly creamy.

Overall: A very nice holiday porter. Very well balanced with a really nice, smooth flavor. Very drinkable.
