Style: American Porter

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.50%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
Everett (1908-1939) 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 Porter is crafted from American malted barley, English and German roasted malts, American hops, our ale yeast, and water from our well. It is unfiltered and naturally carbonated. Decadent in its depth, with a complex backbone of chocolate, coffee, and malty sweetness, this is the ale that I dream to have shared with Everett.

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

Pouring from a 500 ml. bottle into a tulip glass. This beer pours out dark brown and forms black in the glass. It forms one finger worth of dense and creamy caramel colored crown. The smell is roastiness with some hop presence almost bringing a resin element into the mix. The taste brings a creamy note into the roastiness, while still delivering that hop presence. Mouthfeel is creamy. This reminds me a lot of Pappys Porter. Must be something about Vermont.

Appearance - Pours jet black with big fluffy mocha colored head that leaves tons of lacing all around the glass.

Aroma - Big coffee, roasted malt, char, rich milk chocolate, light vanilla, very bold and rich.

Taste - good bit more smoke on the taste than the nose, coffee, roasted malts, decadent chocolate flavor it is almost like a smoked chocolate dessert. light vanilla on the finish the roastiness carries on and on.

Feel - Big full creamy mouthfeel slick oily nice dry finish.

Overall - Just an amazing porter not sure I have had one with this much roast and nuttiness. Excellent full mouthfeel.

On tap at Beer Shop, NYC.
Pours a thick, viscous dark brown/mahogany with hints of ruby. Modest creamy head that quickly dissipates, leaves a thin ring of lacing.
Nutty, chocolate and cocoa, coffee and roasted malt aroma. Also, a touch of alcohol and dark fruit.
Complex taste that masterfully alternates between the sweetness of the chocolate malts, dark caramel, dark fruit and the bitterness of the espresso roast and earthy hops. Bright and creamy finish that is also sticky, dry and bitter.
Full bodied, rich, robust, yet easy to drink. Smooth and creamy.
Wonderful porter that feels bigger than its 7.50% ABV.

Pours a twilight brown, half inch of creamy head, good retention. Aroma is a very smooth roasted malt, milk chocolate, espresso beans and creme fraiche. Taste is simple but evocative - the malt backbone is deceptively clean, highlighting that roasted malt flavor perfectly, elements of cappuccino, foam latte, burnt nut and pumpernickel. One of the best porters out there
