Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: kingcrowing on 09-09-2010

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.

A: Poured from a growler into a HF glass. Body appears quite thick on the pour, viscous black with a half-finger brown head.

S: Nice malty stout nose, full of chocolate and coffee, with coffee slightly more dominant.

T: Roasted barley malt, chocolatey malt up front. Modest creaminess presumably from the oatmeal. Touch of earthy bitterness and coffee. Nice chocolate finish.

M: Medium-full in heft with good carbonation and a decently creamy feel.

O: Good stuff.

12/2013 bottling. Tulip glass.

A: Pours black, medium thickness, with a half finger of attractive, light brown head. Very good retention and some dots and streaks of lacing.

S: Medium-roast coffee, caramel, light roasted malt. Delicate aroma.

T: Roasted malt is more in the forefront, with coffee taking more of a backseat, finishing with some bright acidity.

M: Creamy medium body and medium-light carbonation. A little watery.

O: Overall, a tasty, well crafted coffee stout. Highly drinkable, though a tad one dimensional.
