Hill Farmstead Brewery
Vermont, United States

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.

If I was rating this just a a porter, the score would be higher. It's a good beer with chocolate, anise, and dry roast finish. The feel is balanced and dry. Maybe a little too bitter for my taste. It's good, but not worth the price and not worth seeking out in a trade.

The flavor of this should be the standard for all porters. That being said, it's a standard Porter. Nothing added to excite me or elevate this to a higher rating. Good beer with coffee notes.

opaque black not all that viscous but still only a slight see through at the edges. smell is chocolatey with a hint of coffee and some caramel. Taste kind of follows the nose but seems a tad light and the hops are rather pronounced for this style of beer. There is a piney undertone throughout. Feel is smooth and light. Overall a rather good porter that flirts with the stout line. True to its essence with a strong hoppy profile.
