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.

Had this on 2012-06-09 in Wayne, PA at Teresa's Next Door during Philly Beer Week. Had this again on 2012-12-08 at TJ's in Paoli, PA for their 9th anniversary celebration.

A - Dark ruby-brown with a 1-finger tan head. Looks very inviting.

S - Rich, sweet milk chocolate and some roasted grain and coffee.

T - Tons of flavors. Chocolate, expresso, mild anise, roasted grain. Finishes sweet. Not chalky. More flavor than some Imperial Stouts manage. Delicious.

M - Medium body and light carbonation. Smooth and fairly creamy.

O - This is an excellent porter. Maybe the best I've had; beating out Founders Porter.

I purchased this beer at the Hill Farmstead brewery during their 2nd annual Fall Fest.

Everett pours black into the glass with a small, light tan head on top. The foam dissolves quickly to a thin sheet on the surface leaving behind a few spots of lace on the glass.

The aroma is malty with notes of chocolate, roasted malt, and coffee. Hints of citrus and pine hops are also present.

Each sip of this medium bodied beer is smooth, silky and lightly carbonated. The flavor begins with chocolate, coffee and a touch of roast malt. In the middle a touch of nuts and piney hops move in. It finishes sweet and leaves a lingering chocolate flavor when gone.

This is a very drinkable, full flavored beer. Very tasty and well balanced.

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.

Poured from a 500 mL bottle into a stemmed Hill Farmstead glass. No bottling date on the bottle but I picked this one up at the brewery a couple months ago.

Appearance: Pours a dark brown and leaves a half finger or so of tan head.

Smell: Roasted malt, raisins, plums, figs, coffee, chocolate.

Taste: Matches the nose: roasted malts, dark fruits, cocoa, coffee, slight bitterness. Well balanced porter. The smooth finish really sets this one apart.

Mouth-feel: Medium carbonation with a medium body, creamy. Very smooth and very well balanced.

Overall: This is an excellent porter - perhaps the best "standard" for the porter style that I have had.

Poured from super growler (less than 5 days old) into a tulip glass. Huge thanks to fellow BeerAdvocate for going to the HF release party to pick up a growler for me. Pours dark brown with a nice one and a half finger khaki head with beautiful lacing that lasted throughout. Aromas of grain, oatmeal, coffee, and some vanilla. Flavors of grain, wood, some alcohol and chocolate. Gosh, this beer sure reminded me of Founders Porter, but only better! There are some light bitterness throughout the session. Thick bodied with good carbonation. Nice sticky mouthfeel. Though good, wasn’t world class as many beer raters gave it.
