AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL15/20
S – Insanely roasty..marshmallow, bright citrus fruits and semi-sweet bakers chocolate. I get a little cognac nose.
T – Key tastes are fruits, espresso raw with a touch of chocolate. Minor saltiness with miles of coffee, oak, and the barrel character hits at the finish with some sweet orange candies.
M – Pretty oily, velvety and overall full bodied stout you’d expect from Hill Farmstead, maybe a little thinner than I’m used to.
O – Not the citrus bomb I expected but still a great stout in its own right. I look forward to seeing how this progresses over the next year.
