4.4/5 rDev -2.7%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.25
500mL bottle into tulip. bottled 06 2013.
A: not pitch black, but a very dark brown. head is very frothy and a rich brown hue. retention is terrific. thick spots of lacing left behind.
S: I think this has more rich sweet and dark chocolate than any roast. a very minor warming factor. rich, warm, inviting.
T: a lot of roast, even more chocolate. a boatload more chocolate. perhaps a little bit of astringency. minor vanilla. soft sweetness. there may be a touch of espresso in here too. however the finish is all dark chocolate.
M: the mouthfeel is different but fucking awesome. not quite nitro, but super soft and super smooth.
D: nice to see an American porter on the prestigious top 250 list, especially this high. very tasty shit. certainly one of the best porters I have had, however this mouthfeel and flavor is making me think more stout-side than porter-side. regardless, go get some.

On draft at the Three Penny Taproom in Montpelier, VT (great bar!). They served Everett to me in a tulip. Deep, dark brown body: nearly black. Two fingers of red-tinged, dark brown head.
I'm not the biggest fan of porters. I enjoy them, but they never wow me. This one WOWed me. Everett is pitch-perfect. Great nose, great taste. The mouthfeel is so rich and creamy. I drank it while eating the meat flatbread I ordered, and the two paired so very well together.
Can't wait to head up to Hill Farmstead and get myself a growler of Everett!

500ml bottle served in a snifter. Bottled 10/2013.
Appearance: Pours a dark brown with 2 fingers of a darker tan head with good retention. Once in the glass the body is opaque and nearly black.
Smell: Roasted malt, chocolate, coffee, and faint notes of caramel sweetness, smoke and earth.
Taste: Same as the aroma. Malt sweetness hits right upfront followed by dark chocolate, roasted malt, earthy hops and a mild bitterness that comes through in the finish and aftertaste.
Mouthfeel: Fully bodied, with a thick creamy mouthfeel and medium fine carbonation. Much fuller feel than I would expect from a 7.5% beer.
Overall: My first Hill Farmstead beer and I'm not disappointed. This is definitely an excellent porter, though it's not so much better than some of it's easier to obtain counterparts that it warrants going to great lengths to obtain.
