Pure obsidian with a creamed-coffee coloured head. Oddly, some carbonation appeared to cling to the sides of the stein.
Smells fairly sweet, lots of chocolate with a bit of coffee. Maybe a tiny bit of hops and fruit, with a subtle kick from the medium ABV.
Taste begins super sweet and malty with notes of chocolate, before transitioning to a very nicely balanced hop bitterness that leads into roasted coffee flavours. The finish is the slightest bit dry but still extremely smooth with lingering, sweet toffee and malt notes.
The body is thick, but on the lighter side. Overall, a nearly perfect representation of a porter.

Had a half pint of Everett Porter at the Prohibition Pig in Waterbury, VT while killing time waiting for the Hunger Mountain Co-Op to start selling Heady Topper at three one Friday afternoon.
This is an amazing beer and I can not understand why it is not in the Top 250. I t is way more than your usual porter. It is pitch black, under the blankets dark; with the sticky lacing that tells you "This is going to be really Good."
My second time having Everett, but this time I was sitting in a pub with time to kill, and time to fully enjoy this Best Porter Ever beer. Before I was hustling around the Boston Extreme Beerfest from one station to the next and did really get the chance to savor all that this beer has to offer. It is AWESOME!!!
Serving type: on-tap
