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.

A 500 mL bottle split into tulips. Big thanks to inlimbo77 for sending this one my way.

Pours a dark brown to black color with a caramel colored head. About three centimeters of head forms and lingers for a bit before receding to a healthy, bubbly ring and patches across the surface of the liquid. Scattered patches of sticky lacing decorate the glass.

The aroma is of chocolate, brown sugar, roasted barley, a bit of toffee or caramel, and a hint of dark licorice.

The taste is of bitter chocolate, licorice, caramel, brown sugar, roasted barley, some muddle, earthy grains, and a vague hint of citrus. It’s fairly sweet when you break it down, but it’s exceptionally balanced by the roasted characteristics.

The mouthfeel is spot on. Slightly bitter from the cacao and hops, full-bodied, and rich, but finishing quite cleanly and going down smoothly. The bitterness/roastiness subsides towards the back of the mouth, taking on a more velvet-like feel.

Overall, this is a phenomenal porter. I pulled some strange individual flavors out of it, but they worked together beautifully. Well balanced, easy to drink, and simply delicious; a pleasure all around.

Thanks to Ineedabeerhere for sharing his VT booty. Pours one shade shy of black. Nose is roasty and chocolatey with a hint of lactose. Taste follows nose with a slight smokiness and a light hops bittering at the finish. Mouthfeel is light-medium with an even carbonation and a slightly silky finish. Overall, an amazing porter with a great balance and flavor profile. A wonderful American porter.
