Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: Brad007 on 08-15-2010

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.

Appearance: Oh my god. Jet Black. Little to no head at all. Held up to the light and it was like a total eclipse.
Not a glimmer of light made its way through this beer. Little, almost no lacing.

Aroma: Dark chocolate. Bitter chocolate. Dark roasted malts. No hop aroma. Cacao, cocoa nibs,
all the best things dark. Faint chocolate syrup at the tail end. Really have to reach for the
sweetness but it’s there. Hershey’s syrup? Can’t wait to try it.

Taste: So tasty. Light bitterness that I’m hoping doesn’t overshadow the perfect chocolate. Hershey’s syrup with bitter chocolate on the finish. Can’t stop drinking this. The bigger the sips, the more the sweetness comes through. Small sips and the bitterness shines through. What’s your cup of tea? Go for it!

Mouthfeel: Silky smooth mouthfeel. No carbonation but such a silky smoothness that it doesn’t matter. Would have been ruined by too much carbonation. This beer slides right down the pipe. Not overpowering but not so light that you don’t think you’re drinking a real beer.

Overall this is exceptional. Is there a better beer out there in this style? Yes there is because I’ve had several other Hill Farmstead and Cigar City but my word this is good. There isn’t a bad thing that I can say about it. Drool. I wish I could get this year round. What a perfect beer. Thanks Shaun!

Pour is dark brown, almost black, with a thin coffee brown ring. Nose is roasted barley, cocoa, hint of roasted coffee and a bit dusty. Taste has more malt sweetness, lightly roasted barley with strong cocoa, coffee lingers in finish. Full bodies, smooth and creamy with strong carbonation. There is more malt sweetness in the taste, towards the back of the palate adding some nice depth.
