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.

On-tap at Hill Farmstead. Reviewed while in line for growler fills. Review written from notes. Consumed on 11/2.

A - Brown approaching black with a light beige head. No sediment or last lacing.

S/T - Dark chocolate, molasses, toffee, and cinnamon. Completely hides ABV. Well balanced and leaves a lasting pleasant tart in the mouth.

M - Outstanding. Feels crisp and clean with good carbonation.

O - Very enjoyable and warming. Highly recommended to try.
