Style: American Porter

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.50%

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.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

Look: Very dark black color with a small amount of dark tan head. Decent lacing.

Smell: Getting a ton of chocolate malts and coffee, followed by the slight hint of vanilla and some dark fruit notes.

Taste: Coffee is big and dominant when cold. As it warms the more chocolate taste there is and a decent amount of vanilla flavors.

Feel: This has a thick and creamy mouthfeel, with a very nice dry finish

Overall: This is just an excellent porter and I am loving this beer.

A: Pours pitch black with a mocha colored head. Head is quite creamy looking with decent retention. Average lacing. Good looking but nothing special.

S: Well, this smells like a very traditional but intense porter. There are chocolate malts, coffee notes (but not espresso), leather, pecans, vanilla and some very light cherries. This a dark, round and complex smelling porter.

T: If the smell made me think of coffee without being espresso, the taste really puts the espresso right in the front and center. There is cacao powder, vanilla, leather, cherries (much stronger than in the smell), oak like tannins, pecans and a little bit of earth. The balance is wonderful and with very little residual sweetness.

M: I've never had a Hill Farmstead beer that hadn't a perfect mouthfeel for the genre. This is the case here too: it's broad and round, heavy (but not too much) with a low and soft carbonation.

O: This truly is a wonderful beer from an incredible brewery that doesn't seem to know how to brew a bad beer. The only thing I can say about this beer, and I think it's the first time I say it, is that it would benefit to have a little bit more sweetness. Not a lot, just a little bit. Also, with it's predominant espresso notes, this beer really sits in between a stout and a porter.

Appearance - The beer poured a very dark brown color with an off white head.

Smell - The beer had a big bold roasty color.

Taste - The initial taste was the big bold malts accompanied by coffee. Toward the back, there were nice hints of burnt sugar and perhaps caramel. The malts stayed strong throughout

Mouthfeel - The beer was smooth in mouthfeel with tiny carbonation bubbles.

Overall - This is a really nice porter, but I don’t really think its a Top 250 beer.

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.
