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.

Picked this up in a great trade with Evan! 2013 Vintage. Creamy pitch black pour with a gorgeous two finger caramel-colored head with great retention and crazy lacing. Big nutty, roasty nose with tons of fresh brewed coffee along with hints of oats, toast, espresso, toffee, burnt sugar, and subtle cocoa. The taste is also very coffee forward with tons of roasty malt, toasted oats, leather, tobacco, toffee, vanilla, espresso, and cocoa. The mouthfeel is creamy and mouth-coating with light carbonation, subtle sweetness, and a velvety smooth, dry, bitter finish. Overall, some of the most intense coffee flavor I've tasted in a coffee stout. Another great offering from Hill Farmstead.

Very good, smooth mouthfeel, well integrated flavors. Not necessarily better than other great dark coffee ales.
