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.

On tap at Prohibition Pig. Just an exceptional beer. It's been a long, long time since I rated a beer this highly.

In a tulip the beer was black. There was a small, café au lait colored head with a smattering of lace.

Aroma of chocolate, cocoa, coffee, roasted malt.

Complex taste. One minute I'm tasting sweet chocolate, the next minute dark chocolate, then espresso.

A wonderful combination of bitter and sweet. Medium-bodied.

I could drink this forever.

Pours a dark brown from the growler, black in the glass. Beautiful lacing from a nice head for the style, very dark brown with good retention.

Aroma is of coffee beans, barley, dark malts, and cream. Not a particularly complex or overpowering nose, but nice and relaxing.

Taste follows the nose, highlighting big coffee notes, a sweet creaminess, a hint of grape-like booze, dark malts, dark fruit, earthy hop bitterness, and chewy wheat.

In a lot of stouts and porters with a full mouthfeel, "chewy" is the nom de jour typically sought after; here, "creamy" seems so much more appropriate. Full, robust, creamy, luscious; pick your favorite. I can't imagine improving on the mouthfeel.

Interestingly, I like this beer anywhere from refrigerator to cellar temperature; once it warms to room temperature, the bitterness and coffee flavor become a little too dominant for my tastes, and you lose out on the delicious creaminess.
