Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: Brad007 on 08-15-2010

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: Chocolate brown in color with a nice tan head to complement. Creamy head. Good lacing.

S: Chocolate, coffee.

T: More of the same from the nose with ample malting present. Sweet and could be a dessert. A subtle fresh hop flavor is present.

M: Creamy, and on the thicker side.

O: Redefines a porter for me - rarely have seen this depth of flavor in this style and really enjoyable.

Poured from a 750ml flip top growler. Filled on 05/15/13, drank today. Poured into large wine glass, first pour at around 10c/50f.

A: Pours very black as expected, very quick, light chocolate tan head, dies off pretty quickly, little lakes of lacing floating on top.

S: Pretty light on the nose at the initial temp, but most of the aroma is the roasted malts...I don't get much hops or bitterness, but mainly chocolates...

T: Right out of the bottle (at above noted temps), starts light, lots of roasted malts....but in a milk chocolate way that is typical of porters, not that sweet at all and with that interesting earthy/acidic barley flavour, finishes slightly bitter burnt espresso coffee, caramel, and as others note, roasted almonds/nuts.

M: Light, nice carbonation (may differ from bottle, but still, as with all HF, naturally carbonated... extremely balanced and smooth, not really sticky like a stout or overly dry....allows for easy drinking

O: Certainly the best porter I've had... not too light, but has that easy drinking style compared to stouts, but quite full flavoured, too often porters turn out more watery as they try to get that nice drinkability but this one doesn't disappointed... not overly hoppy either, with just a lot of nice burnt/roasted malt profiles blending together... where the typical porter runs around 5% but turns out flat, HF has been able to finally build up the malt profile while raising the ABV, but without sacrificing the style and making it syrupy/sticky/stout like... love it...

One of the best beers I have ever had! Chocolate roasty aroma with an incredible nutty, chocolate taste. Really!!! I could drink this every day it's that good. Pours almost no head yet has a fantastic mouthfeel with crisp slight carbonation. This is the very definition of a World Class Beer! Seek this out, sell your home do what you need to do to try this beer.

Bottom Line: Legendary beer!
