Notes / Commercial Description:
One of our most coveted Nietzschean narratives, Genealogy of Morals, inspires our bourbon barrel-aged imperial stout of the same name. We present to you the opportunity to enjoy the non barrel-aged base beer, simply named Genealogy. brewed with malted wheat and locally roasted coffee, then conditioned in stainless steel. Dark, rich and smooth, its complex flavors belie the singular vision with which we create it - echoing the work that inspires it.

Tan head. Black color.

Typical hf house stout flavors. Roasted malts and some char. Chocolate. Caramel and toffee. Molasses.

Medium to full bodied.

The hf stouts haven't been my thing and this one doesn't do it for me.

On tap at the Hill Farmstead First Anniversary Party. Served in a Hill Farmstead long-stem tulip.

Pours a deep, dark black color with a nice mocha head and a bit of spotty lacing on the sides as it goes down. The nose carries loads and loads of chocolate. Good coffee and roasted malt in the background as well. Heavy fudge and a bit of sweet malt. Really rich chocolate flavor in the taste, like a dark chocolate fudge bar. The rye is not extremely noticeable, but definitely makes an appearance in the flavor and more so in the feel. Really full body without any alcohol. Really creamy. Absolutely outstanding brew.

On tap. Black color with mocha head. Aroma has dark fruits and dark malts, chocolate, coffee but also a good dose of hops. Taste follows with sweet coffee and dark fruits but finishes with a nice hoppy bitterness. Body is heavy with smooth carbonation. A really well done imperial stout with some good coffee and hops.

Thick and dark with 3 fingers of mocha head. Great retention and lace. The nose is loaded with molasses, pumpernickel and medium roast coffee. Licorice, molasses, burnt toast, and coffee through the flavored profile.
