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.

On tap at the Armsby Abbey.

Pours black with a huge mocha head.

Nice coffee and chocolate aromas and the same on the palate.

Medium mouthfeel.

Another hit from Hill Farmstead.

Poured from a 750mL growler filled at the brewery last month. A little past the expiry but stored in the fridge until opening it today.

Pours a deep brown, nearly black body with a big frothy dark mocha colored head that reduces slowly and leaves foam with big bubbles in it.. some lacing. Beautiful pour.

Huge aromas of ground coffee, dark chocolate, some vanilla and caramel in the background.

Upfront I get light notes of coffee, milk chocolate, roasty malt. The follow through is really roasty, charred malt and heavily roasted coffee notes. Not too strong on the aftertaste. Somewhat watery, medium-low carbonation.

Overall a very enjoyable stout, pretty easy to drink and flavorful. Wish it was a little more rich and full bodied, but nonethless a good beer.
