The Farmhouse Stout from Hall Brewing Company in Parker, Colorado pours out pitch black in color with no light getting through and is topped with a one finger, mocha colored, densely knit head that reduces down to a thin film with a large collar. On the nose, big, rich and roasted. Aromas of deeply roast grain, coffee, chocolate, licorice, charcoal and molasses. In the mouth, a little less roast than the nose and very quaffable. Flavors of roast grain, coffee, chocolate and a light molasses sweetness. Medium to full bodied. Moderate carbonation. Thick sheets of lacing on the glass. Nice creaminess in the mouthfeel. Slightly dry on a long finish with the chocolate and coffee riding right to the end.
A solid craft beer from a new craft brewery. Right out of the fridge the flavors were a little muted and the mouthfeel seemed a little thin. As the craft brew warms though, the flavors really come through and the thin mouthfeel becomes creamy and delicious. Let this sit for a good 20 minutes after you take it out of the fridge. I'd happily drink this stout again. Recommended.
22 ounce bottle
Note - the Farmhouse in the name of this Farmhouse Stout refers to the brewery and should not be confused with this being a Belgian style stout.
