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.

I had at Muggs Alehouse in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.

A. It is pure black with a dark tan head. With the pour there wasn't much of a head, so not much lacing, but you can tell that if you poured it straight in it would leave much lacing behind.

S. It has a not-overbearing nutty and malty scent.

T/M. There's a strong dose of chocolate that comes through at first. The alcohol is strong; full bodied. Very, very rich. It's carbonated and tingly on the palate, with a long finish. Mild grassy taste and a hint of caramel sweetness.

O. It's a very complex, delicious brew. A truly fantastic porter.

Thanks to williamjbauer for this one. Served in a snifter
verett

A- Pours nearly pitch black with no head at all, no fizz, nothing. Looks like a cup of coffee

S- Very complex nose that includes lots of chocolaty malt, slightly smoky campfire, charcoal, raisin and prune. The chocolate notes just continue throughout, reminiscent of a nutty piece of chocolate fudge

T- The complexity continues to the flavor. Rich roasted chocolaty malt with big notes of coffee and dark fruit with some nutty hazelnut. Smoky notes add a slight bitterness and charred woodsy flavor, the finish picks up some herbal notes with more coffee and chocolate on the linger that seems to last forever

M- medium body with low carbonation leads to a slick mouthfeel and silky finish. Drinks efortlessly for a 7.5% ABV

O- This is my first HF beer and I was weary of all of the hype, but this was an awesome porter. I had a growler and it had lost some carbonation, so I’d love to try the bottled version. Nontheless, this was a great intro to HF and I look forward to trying more.
