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.

A- Very black with a nice two finger depth of head. Left a good amount of lacing.

S- Chocolate and roasted malts. Some hop presence.

T- Chocolate and Roasted malt goodness. A little hot on the finish. Some vanilla and Coffee in there too. Tasted somewhere between a porter and Russian Imperial (and closer towards a RIS). As it warmed the flavors really started to come out.

M- Full bodied no doubt. Very creamy. Absolute perfection here.

O- So much great flavor going on here. It's too bad this is a hard one to get. Vermonters are so damn lucky. Totally enjoyed it, though it seemed to be less a porter than RIS.

On tap at Rattle N Hum

Dark brown/black pour with head reducing to ring of lacing. Sweet, roasty malts, chocolate, coffee, a hint of dark fruit and slightly tart. Finishes with some bitter hop presence. The balance of sweetness, bitterness, tartness and richness of flavor pushes my buttons in the right way. Creamy, viscous and oily mouthfeel but not thick. Very easy drinking. A fine fine porter and an awesome beer. Love it.

Friend picked this up at the brewery for me. Poured from 750ml growler into tulip glass. Thin caramel-colored head quickly dissipated. Smell was subtle roast malt with hints of chocolate. The taste in awesome... decadently sweet chocolate with balanced flavor from the roast malts. The columbus hops also keep the chocolate sweetness from being too overpowering. Easily my favorite porter.
