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.

Big thank you to TheSevenDuffs for the bottle

Nearly jet black, ring of tan head, some lace as well on the glass. Smell is a wonderful mix of roast and chocolate, coffee notes mix with hops give off a nice bittersweet presence, a little bit of liquorice, but such a rich roast that is truly lovely is right upfront the whole time. Taste Is a mix of rich dark chocolate and roasted malts, coffee and a bit of milk chocolate with a touch of anise/liquorice, moderately bitter hop bill here as well, lovely roasted finish and chocolatey aftertaste. Lightly carbonated, full bodied, good feel throughout. This is no doubt the best porter to have met my glass, an absolutely drinkable beer that I would drink as often as I am lucky to encounter 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.
