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.

On tap at Torst. My maiden beer there. Pours a dark brown cloudy color with a caramel colored head. Aroma of coffee, chocolate, caramel, alcohol and slight slight spice. Sweet creamy chocolate taste with coffee notes and slight spice pinch. Perhaps a slight vanilla to add silkiness. Love it. Best porter I have had. It gets as close to a stout as a porter will get without crossing the line.

22 oz bottle poured into my Hill Farmstead oversized wine glass.

Pours a rich dark chocolaty brown. Huge head, doesn't go down until halfway through the glass.

The smell and taste is all about the roast. Really high quality malts used here. Lots of chocolate, bit of coffee bitterness, lots of roasty bitterness. Never gets to be fatiguing, though. Tastes like a stout by most breweries' standards.

Full, thick creamy mouthfeel. Medium carbonation.

Awesome. I'm glad I got to snag a bottle of this at Hill Farmstead and look forward to the day I can drink it again.

Poured from the growler into a snifter.

Pours dark brown color with just a small amount of tan head. The nose is full of roast and slightly sweet dark chocolate. Just a touch smokey. The smell follows the nose closely. Roasted malt bitterness with dark fruit and dark chocolate behind. Lots of roast in the finish.
