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.

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.

500ml bottled poured into a Hill Farmstead oversized wine glass.

A~ black! with hardly any head.

S~ sooo much roasty coffee! a little sweetness, kind of like a milk stout followed by dark chocolate and some figs.

T~ Cocoa, roasty malts, and dark figs up front. followed by a crazy sweetness on the finish with a dark coffee aftertaste. wow! way more coffee on the nose though.

M~ oh so smooth! slightly carbonated, has more of a stout feel then a porter.

O~ absolutely delicious! most flavor i've ever experienced in a porter. this is the newest batch, i would love to try a bottle of last years!

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.
