Notes/Commercial Description:
Everett (1908-1939) was our grandfather’s brother; Hill Farmstead Brewery rests upon the land that was once home to him and his 13 siblings. In his honor, this Porter is crafted from American malted barley, English and German roasted malts, American hops, our ale yeast, and water from our well. It is unfiltered and naturally carbonated. Decadent in its depth, with a complex backbone of chocolate, coffee, and malty sweetness, this is the ale that I dream to have shared with Everett.

Pale, Caramel, and Chocolate Malt, Roasted Barley, Columbus hops; Ale Yeast, and our Well Water.

500ml bottle into a tulip glass. No clue what age/vintage it is, but I believe its somewhat fresh.

A - Pitch black body which lets zero light through. Massive fluffy mocha head. Settles down to a frothy cap with crazy amounts of retention. The foam just clings to the glass the entire time. Probably the best lacing I've ever seen on a beer.

S - Robust indeed. Deep roasty malts, fresh espresso beans, sweet and lactic milk chocolate, and a touch of bitter mineral rich water. Finishes with sweet and rich vanilla. Perfect aroma.

T - Follows the nose with a pleasant mix of intense espresso beans, milk chocolate, vanilla and perfectly roasted malts. Just a touch of hop bitterness to work against the sweetness and richness of it all. Booze isn't present in the taste but there is a light warmth happening in the throat.

M - Slick and coating mouth feel. Very silky with a high level of carbonation that prevents it from being cloying.

O - The best porter I'v ever had, easily. Which sucks considering how tough it is to get bottles of this beer. Hype and availability aside, Hill Farmstead is the real deal. Unbelievable beer.

On tap at Rattle N Hum

Dark brown/black pour with head reducing to ring of lacing. Sweet, roasty malts, chocolate, coffee, a hint of dark fruit and slightly tart. Finishes with some bitter hop presence. The balance of sweetness, bitterness, tartness and richness of flavor pushes my buttons in the right way. Creamy, viscous and oily mouthfeel but not thick. Very easy drinking. A fine fine porter and an awesome beer. Love it.

Friend picked this up at the brewery for me. Poured from 750ml growler into tulip glass. Thin caramel-colored head quickly dissipated. Smell was subtle roast malt with hints of chocolate. The taste in awesome... decadently sweet chocolate with balanced flavor from the roast malts. The columbus hops also keep the chocolate sweetness from being too overpowering. Easily my favorite porter.
