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.

Utterly magnificent beer from Hill Farmstead and ranks second in my book only behind Society and Solitude #5. It is a black oil with a 1.5 finger dusty white head that turns into mocha tan. It smells incredible of dark chocolate and some coffee. The dark chocolate profile is so enduring that it lingers even after the distinct espresso end notes. Complex yet smooth. Would love to always have it at my fingertips.

500mL bottle split into two tulip glasses.

Look: Very dark. Can't see any light through it. A nice dark brown head is formed leaving very little lacing.

Smell: Smells like fudge, a tad of vanilla and coffee, and a ton of dark fruits.

Taste: Very fudgey. Almost as fudgey as Aun Mas Jesus. Dark fruits up front ending with a bit of coffee, caramel and a bit of vanilla. A touch of smoke also.

Feel: Feels a bit thick for a regular porter but it's not too thick.

Overall: This beer is fantastic. I had thr BA version last night and enjoyed that even more. This beer is definitely a top 5 porter/stout for me. Hill Farmstead knows their stuff.

Pours deep black brown with a chocolate brown bubbly head. Smell is dark roast coffee, char, single origin chocolate. Taste is big roasty notes with bittersweet chocolate and malts coming together with a Chocolate Riesen candy vibe. Sweetness subsides and bold roast takes over as it warms up. Feel is soft and perfect for the style. Great beer.
