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.

Might be the tastiest and best porter I have ever had. I had it on tap at HF, in a growler, and in bottle. All were amazing. Tastes like dark chocolate brownie beer.

16.9 oz. bottled 2.8.17

Pours pitch black with a creamy tan brown foam head. Smells like licorice, baker's chocolate, tobacco, dark roast coffee, espresso, smoky roasted malts, raisins, dark dried fruits, dark caramel, molasses, charred brown sugar, with woody earthy herbal grassy pine. Tastes like licorice, dark baker's chocolate, tobacco leaf, smoky roasted malts, dark roast black coffee, espresso, raisins, dark dried fruits, dark caramel, molasses, charred brown sugar, with woody earthy herbal grassy pine. Feels medium-full bodied, creamy and smooth with moderate low carbonation. Overall a really great robust porter.

Appearance: pours a dark brown color with a 1" head that lingers around a while.

Smell: roastred tones with some chocolate and hints of coffee.

Taste: follows the nose as a big roasted malt profile leads off with some dark chocolate, coffee, and a moderate bitterness.

Mouthfeel: medium bodied beer. Lightly crisp to start, smoother at the finish.

Overall: a wonderful beer loaded with well balanced flavors.

750 ML growler in trade, either day of or day after. Fresh either way. Poured into Lawson's tulip glass.

L: Beer pours completely dark with 2F light tan head with good retention, lots of lacing, and a cap and ring.

S: Roasty malt and barley goodness, giving off scents like coffee, unsweetened cocoa, and caramel. Tiny deduction for barely noticeable off-note that is mineral in character (likely the famous HF well water).

T: Lots of roasty goodness that generally follows the nose with slightly sweet coffee and unsweetened cocoa.

F: Medium bodied, light natural carbonation. Creamy goodness. Excellent construction and balance.

O: Best basic porter I've had. No big frills or added flavor, just solid goodness.
