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.

750mL growler poured into a snifter. Thanks Matt for sharing!

(A)- Pours practically pitch black in color with some tan froth that dissipated quickly.

(S)- Quite rich and deep, even for a porter. Mountains of raisin and coffee grounds with a subtle kick of sweet vanilla. A superb underlying roasted quality to this that makes the coffee aromas very striking.

(T)- Quite similar to the smell. An excellent roasted quality with coffee and cocoa. Hints at a smoky licorice and vanilla on the finish that I am really enjoying right now.

(M)- A great carbonation level and balance. Definitely one of the more robust porters I have had in recent memory. Just a superb roasted quality to the malts.

(O)- A world class porter in every way. It is also perhaps one of the strongest porters I have had as well, but that is the way I like them.

Pours pitch black with nice tan head, nice lacing left behind. Nose is robust and smokey with notes of chocolate, cream, oats, and smoke. Taste is roasty up front. Roast and chocolate are followed up by some earthy hop notes. Nicely balanced notes here, spot on for the style. Mouthfeel is moderate with appropriate carbonation. Delicious porter, well worth a try.
