Notes/Commercial Description:
Earl (1911-1985) 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 Stout is crafted from American malted barley, Flaked Oats, English roasted malts, American hops, Organic Guatemalan Coffee, our ale yeast, and water from our well. It is unfiltered and naturally carbonated. A silhouette of coffee and malt - an embodiment of complexity and drinkability, this is the ale that I dream to have shared with Earl.

Pale, Caramel, and Chocolate Malt, Roasted Barley, Columbus hops; Ale Yeast, and our Well Water.

Served alongside Earl (bourbon).
The beer is dark brown, near black, with a half inch of beige cap. The aroma brings roast, coffee, oats. Definitely smells true to style. A delicious beer. Oatmeal, chocolate cereal grains. On par with Samuel Smith and Young's (is that sacrilege? - if so, favoring whom?). A solid beer.

Love Coffee Stout beers.

A-Jet black with about a two finger head.

S-Awesome roasted coffee with a small hints of Oats. I also get some really nice chocolate smell.

T-Really nice bitterness from the coffee with some strong cocoa taste. Nice creamy oat taste.

M-Medium body, nice carbonation and very creamy.

O-Very nice Stout. Not in the league of FBS or Double Shot from Tree House, but its very good.
