Hill Farmstead wine glass

A: Pours a really deep deep brown. Almost black in color. Some reddish hues around the edges. Bottle was under carbonated, like others have mentioned. Pretty much the only knock on appearance is that. I did get a thin line of tan head around edges. Not leaving a lot of lacing even with a swirl.

S: Tons of coffee on the nose. Smell some Chiptole peppers coming through that body. There is some dark fruit under there too as well as some chocolate and roast. Really nice nose.

T: On the tip of the tongue you get that amazing bitter coffee flavor. Really high quality brewed coffee flavor. There is also a tingle of that pepper there too. As the sip continues, you get a nice smooth mid palate due to those oats. Chocolate. More roast coffee. And the pepper tingle comes up again in the back of the throat. Really nice.

M: It's full bodied. Carbonation issues.

Served in a Lagunitas mason jar.

Thanks to twiggamortis420 for this bottle!

I dunno why, but this sounds like a Zappa album to me... Anyway, this stuff pours a deep, brackish black-brown topped by a finger of golden brown foam. The nose comprises rich cocoa, light booze, blackly-roasted malts, char, and dry, fruity coffee. It's everything a smoked coffee stout oughta be, though the slight absence of pepper character is somewhat disappointing, even if only minorly so. The taste rectifies this, reprising all of the elements of the smell and including a generous amount of pepper, both flesh and a mild bit of heat, for our collective tasting pleasure. The body is a solid medium, with a very light moderate carbonation and a lightly chewy feel. Overall, a damn fine imperial stout, one whose various components somehow find a way to cooperate and not bicker and clash at all hours of the night. I need to get more of this...
