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.

10 ounce Belgian glass at Armsby Abbey - Worcester
Color: black ale that allows no light with brown edges.
Smell: light vanilla, hops, dark fruit. Full bodied porter with a smooth taste of dark fruit, light roasted malt, dark fruit, light molasses, with no rough edge from the hops or roasted malts which are mute here. Medium thickness mouth feel. This is a hoppy beer with pronounced grassy notes that dissipate as soon as they hit your tongue. No bitter finish. The porter's taste does not linger. It's a good beer but forgettable.
