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.

Appearance: It has a nice jet black color to it. It has a nice thick creamy tan head that dies down slowly and leaves nice lacing.

Smell: The aromas definitely give out hints of roasted coffee, rich roasted malts, chocolate, some oats and faint vanilla.

Taste: Like the aromas, it has a loads of roasted malts, coffee, an espresso bitterness, some chocolate, oats and very faint vanilla.

Mouthfeel: It has a low carbonation with a very nice overall balance and feel.

Drinkability: It's a very smooth drinkable beer accompanied by great flavors and aromas. Shaun Hill truly is a world class brewer.

Serving type: growler
