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.

it gushed. a gusher porter? eeks. massive head, way too much carbonation.

nose is chocolate. some sweet candy and espresso. a few hints of berry. hint of port wine.

taste has me locking in. so much bitter dark chocolate. espresso and roasted malt blend. really strong, bitter, dark, and flavorful. hops are a bit faint, maybe some citrus.

very carbonated, too carbonated. tons of bite and bloating in the mouth. after many swirls, it tames down for a sweet light body.

good but mother of god the carbonation killed it.

Poured into a Hill Farmstead glass. Nice black color with a half inch tan head (though the head was much larger on my brother's glass).

The aroma indicates slightly sweet black coffee with a note of chocolate fudge.

The taste starts out with sweet malt followed by a clean bitter roasted finish. There is a gentle hop flavor in the finish. Nothing too fancy here, but I have to be impressed by the perfect sweet and bitter balance.

The mouthfeel is robust and the carbonation just enough to make this refreshing.

Another impressive offering from Hill Farmstead. Can't wait to go back for more!

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.

Really dark porter, just a hair under black, nice pretty creamy head on it, over 1" in depth. Good retention of the lace as well. Aroma, dark chocolate, solid, but not substantial roast aroma, didn't really get much if anything in the way of coffee.

Taste, pretty smooth, like there's a bunch of oatmeal used. Very smooth, very rich. I think there's a little touch of vanilla in there. Or maybe its caramel I'm tasting and that's helping with the smoothness, not a robust porter in the sense its a highly hopped one, it really just lays something down smooth. Alcohol hid well. Carbonation is spot on. Frankly, I don't really see what is robust, its really good and all, but not because it is robust or in your face, its nice because its a smooth operator.

One of the better porters I've had in awhile. Unless you count the BBXXIII as a true porter. . . this is a very good non bal porter.

From notes taken 3/31. Thanks to exitmusic00 for sharing this bottle.

A- Pours a dark brown with a thin off white head that dissipates fairly quickly leaving minimal lacing.

S- Quite smoky upfront, with dark chocolate, burnt caramel, roasted malt, and some smoked meat.

T- Luckily the meaty aroma isn't in the taste. Again smoke is prominent with dark chocolate, burnt caramel, roasted malt, char and cocoa powder.

M- Medium carbonation and a creamy full body. The best aspect of the beer and something that Hill Farmstead always impress me with.

O- A unique take on the porter with the smokiness, but the smoke presence was a bit overwhelming. Still good, but not one of my favorites from HF.

Poured into a snifter.

Dark ruby garnet with a good creamy brown head. Good retention and lacing.

Aroma is dominated by roast followed by malts and a pungent tartness. The tartness is fortunately absent in the taste. Strongly roasty with intense dark chocolate, subtle grain and a hint of citrus hops.

Obscure smokiness that comes through strongly once in a while. Slightly warming minus the booze. Dry finish with a lingering roasted beans aftertaste.

Perfect level of carbonation... enough to carry the beer without compromising the silkiness. Very well designed and executed beer.
