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.

A: Pours pitch back with a full brownish head.
S: The nose is probably the best thing about this exceptional beer. Vanilla, caramel, coconut, dark fruits, chocolate, coffee, graham cracker.
T: At first, I get bitter coffee-like notes and sweet lactose. Toffee, chocolate and vanilla/oak. The finish has the traditional earthy hop presence of a robust porter with a slight alcohol tinge. The hops are kept in check by the sweet chocolate notes.
M: Decadent. Extremely smooth and creamy, but very very drinkable.
O: the best porter I've had the pleasure of trying. As the beer warms, different flavors are accentuated, and so I looked forward to each sip. I need to seek this out again.

Very well balanced porter with rich chocolate flavors. Finished with a nice bitter end.

Good head, rich texture in the mouth, aroma of hops and chocolate
