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.

500ml bottle (Oct 2013) poured into a Hill Farmstead stemmed wine tulip

First pour is amber brown, quickly becomes almost purely opaque, dark as night. A solid 1-inch mocha head forms, featuring 100s of tiny bubbles, and while it doesn't stick around forever, it manages to retain itself quite well with lots of sticky lacing. While this should have been drunk when it was much more fresh, the nose still produces ample roast coffee & cocoa notes, leaving no doubt to the sweet nature of the brew. Flavor-wise, it features the perfect amount of sweetness, reminds me of the hint of vanilla soy from a Starbucks drink, closing in on mocha rich. Finish produces that moderately bitter coffee bite, but it all works, in fact, it's perfect. On top of all that, the mouthfeel is unparalleled for a non-BA, sub-8%, porter. Incredible beer. Quite likely the best "regular" porter I've ever had.

Had a 750ml growler last Sunday filled the day before. Simply one of the best beers I've ever tasted.

Bottled October of 2013. Probably lost a step or two since then but still a very nice malt backbone with coffee and chocolate influence.

Good, but a little thin. Overrated to me.
