BIG thanks to my new friend Vermonthiker for generously trading this one to me! This was one of the better BA stouts I've had in some time. Really fantastic beer. Happy to share this with my best friend and brother. Unfortunately, the Blackhawks sucked in Game 1 and didn't make this experience complete with a win as we hoped. This was our first Hill Farmstead offering and it did not disappoint!

Bottle date 6/2013

Pours as a stout should, black as night and no signs of light getting anywhere near this ferocious beast. A beautiful espresso colored head forms and disperses into a solid ring and lacing that stays until the last drop. NOSE BOMB! Wow, still a ton of bourbon in the nose with this much time. Was really taken back by the aroma on this. Tons of deliciousness; bourbon, chocolate, caramel, vanilla,oak and malt. Flavor matches the nose with more tongue coating mouthfeel than I was expecting. Lots of sugary sweetness on the finish. Overall, this is a beauty. Really impressed with this beer and how well it sat. Vermonthiker...you're awesome! Trade with this man!

Poured from a 22oz bottle into a taster. Thanks Brandon for sharing this.

Sweet coffee, vanilla, cocoa, caramel roasty , a little plastic on the aroma. Lighter body than expected.

Loved this. Poured very dark...almost pitch black. Smell has some sweetness and coffee notes. Flavor is a wonderful medley of coffee followed by subtle sweetness (from the barrel?). Feel is excellent, good carb. Overall, another magnificent beer by HF.
