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.

Sampling a cold bottle split with Stopper.
Pours a cola brown color with minimal tan head moving quickly to a thin surface layer that sticks around throughout sampling.
Aroma is all malt with roasted notes and coffee grinds mixing throughout tasting, I also get some dark molasses notes and a bit of grassy hop that is buried deep in the nose.
First sip reveals an average to thick body with a silky smooth texture and gentle carbonation.
Flavor is all malt with roasted notes and a bit of dark cocoa chocolate. I also get brown sugar on the finish. No hint of booze or hops on the flavor profile.
Quite a nice drinkable beer. Worth the travel to get a bottle. Thanks to Stopper for sharing!

This bottle courtesy of franklinn...thanks man!
500ml bottle poured int GI pint

Pour: I would not call this black but probably as close to black as it can get. It is a very dark brown with an outstanding 3 finger light brown head. Head receded slowly leaving a ton of lacing that is sticking to the entire area where the head once was.

Smell: A wonderful balance of chocolate and roast at first. Neither one is dominant and they complement each other to perfection. Digging a little deeper I get some vanilla, caramel, some dark fruits, a bit of coffee and a touch of earthy hops. Smells like a semi-sweet chocolate cake.

Taste: Chocolate decadence in a beer! Chocolate syrup, chocolate cake, chocolate fudge brownies all come to mind first. There is a mild roast but like the nose is in perfect harmony with the chocolate without one over powering the other. Some coffee, vanilla, and maybe reaching for a dark fruit (raisin) note. The finish is a bit bitter.

Mouthfeel: This is how a porter should feel IMO. Medium bodied to slightly full especially for a porter with an indescribable perfect amount of carbonation making for an absolute wonderful feeling beer. Creamy and fulfilling in the mouth covering the palate to perfection urging yet another sip.

Overall: I love stouts and especially ones that have spent time in a barrel but let me say that I would take this beer any day. One of the best beers I have had to date and cannot say enough good things about how well done this beer is.
