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.

Bought this growler on Thursday at the brewery- now that we are back from vacation I am sitting here on Sunday night enjoying this brew with my husband. Poured into a Sam Adams lager glass-which I feel has a more ideal shape than a standard pint glass

A- Body appears obsidian in soft lighting allowing no light to pass through even when held up to the light-in aggressive lighting it takes on more of a black coffee tone but still allows little if any light to pass through. Pours with a 1-2 finger latte colored head. The head grows slightly after the initial pour and fades to one finger trapping aroma and leaving traces of lacing all the way down the glass.

S- Dark malt, chocolate, vanilla, oats, and a touch of roasted malt overtones.

T- Initial flavor is somewhat mild and offers hints of dark chocolate and vanilla and smooth rich malt. There is a balanced roasted malt bitterness and maybe a touch of floral hops that meet the initial smooth rich flavor. Left to linger is a perfect balance of all the flavors aforementioned.

M- Almost unbelievable. My husband initially described this brew as "too smooth." Yes, there is a low carbonation and a medium to heavy weight rich, smooth, and creamy body.

O- Overall this is one of the best porters I have had. This is a new "gold standard" porter for me. It is a very smooth and well balanced beer that doesn't really have anything aggressive, experimental, or over the top. It really shouldn't be anything special in theory-but the quality and class of this brew are top notch.

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.
