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.

Props to strohsbeforehoes for this fine trade

A- Dark brown with a mocha color head of about 1 finger. Silky lacing

S- Intense chocolate, vanilla, caramel, earthy hops

T- Follows nose well, but even more of a sweet milk chocolate punch. Toffee, sweet lactose, and subtle hints of coffee. Are you kidding me with this roasted perfection and balance?Layers come at you in waves that takes this malty goodness into another level of complexity. Snappy bitter finish immediately turns smooth.

M- It doesn't get much better than this. Full body, creamy, and viscous. Has the feel of a much stronger stout.

O- Outstanding. Best porter I have had to date. You could easily pair this with a desert dish, but this is one bad ass beer that should probably be enjoyed by itself.

Not 100% sure, but I believe it retails for about $8 for 22oz bomber.

22 oz. Bomber. American Porter. 7.5 ABV. Jet Black with a hazelnut cream head. Solid malt nose with heavy dark chocolate and medium roasted coffee smell with a sugary sweet end. Almost a sugar in the raw smell. Taste is magnificent. All of the smells are present in the flavor. Light to no carbonation. Rich smooth feel with an even smoother finish. Aftertaste is an exquisite mocha coffee like blend. This beer smacks me in the face with how good it is. My brother in law ThreeLions introduced me to this. It is certainly my favorite beer in this style and might be my favorite beer that I have ever tried.

Served on tap at the Resivoir in Waterbury, VT. 10oz pour into a snifter.

This was an amazing porter. Deep black with a nice tan head. Good retention and lacing. Aroma of roasted malts, toffee and chocolate maybe? Taste some malty sweetness but not overpowering. Some chocolate, coffee and roast. The mouthfeel is where this beer is king! Extremely smooth and full bodied. No harshness or overpowering carbonation here.
Overall this was the best damn porter I've ever had!

Served from a 16oz bottle into a Smutty pint glass. Served about cellar temps. 10-2013 batch.

Appearance- Black as night with real quick half finger mocha head that left some lacing. Real dark beer here.

Smell- Very roasty. Coffee, chocolate, touch of hops, roasted malts. Pretty standard porter aromas.

Taste- Oh boy. Chocolate, coffee, licorice, cinnamon, dark stone fruits, vanilla. One of the most flavorfull porters I've ever had. Reminds me of an unsmoked Fear and Trembling. So good.

Mouthfeel- So smooth. Rich and creamy mouthfeel with medium-light carbonation. Super light hint of booze. Easy drinking.

Overall- Sitting here on a very cold snowy day, this is exactly the beer I was looking for. This will keep you warm in the darkest nights. Quite incredible and hands down the best porter I've ever had.

Another awesome beer from Rutager this past summer. Wonderful box man. Cheers!

From a 50cl bottle into a snifter
21 Plato

APPEARANCE: Pours out black, slightly clear, yielding a 1+ finger, medium looking, light tan head with good retention. Black body with higher levels of carbonation. Head slowly fades to a thick, full wisp and sticks to the sides of the glass. A half wisp remains and leaves some nice lacing down the glass. Really good looking.

SMELL: Roasted aromas, sweet cream and vanilla with coffee, espresso, milk chocolate and light caramel notes. Some nuts on the nose too. Great, but not quite as impressive as the taste.

TASTE: Yes. Roasted flavors, milk chocolate and sweet caramel laced with vanilla cream up front. A big and persistent finish of sweet cream and milk chocolate, roasted grain, bitter espresso and coffee notes. Really delicious. Wonderful.

PALATE: Medium body and medium levels of carbonation. Creamy and silky on the palate, goes down smooth and finishes slightly mouth-coating. Good feel for sure.

OVERALL: This is phenomenal. An exceptional beer that really crosses the boundaries between porter and stout, and I'd probably put it in the later category if pushed. Lots of great flavors and aromas with a solid, creamy feel to support it all. Something worth seeking out if you can. Thanks again Rutager. Highly recommended.
