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.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

8oz pour from a growler provided to me courtesy of forum member Bluecane.

Pours with a stout-like darkness and a nice healthy looking mocha head. Strong lacing, looks well carbonated.

Smell is roasty malt and chocolate and a bit of a hop presence (strikes me as centennial but i'm probably wrong). The hop presence is far from overwhelming, but stronger than in most porters.

Taste is in line with smell, but just a little more enjoyable. Lots of roasty chocolate goodness without being overwhelming. No real sense of alcohol and no real bitterness in the finish. Just as with the smell, the hops are evident but not jarring.

Mouthfeel is fine for the style. Feels pretty smooth and is easy to drink.

Overall this is probably the best porter i've ever had. Based on its ranking, i don't feel particularly creative in making that assertion. It's super drinkable while having its hop and malt character remain assertive while simultaneously blending together well. Kind of a slightly better, lighter version of fresh Nightstalker. Give it a try if you can, but then again you already knew that.
