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.

Tasted from draft. Pours black with a beige soda like head. Aroma is dark chocolate, coffee, and tobacco. Taste is moderately bitter with mild malty sweet backbone. Flavors of coffee, chocolate, caramel, toffee, and licorice. Pretty full bodied. Excellent porter.

I like Hill Farmstead's offerings, and it is certainly worth a stop at the brewery when I am in the Northeast Kingdom but... I had always considered them just one of the many excellent breweries here in Vermont. This weekend I had Everett, fresh, and my entire opinion of their enterprise changed. This is, quite simply, the best tasting thing that I have ever had... it is perfect in every dimension. The taste starts with chocolate and coffee and a glorious warmth sustains like the tone of a vintage Les Paul through an old tube amp.

I have never been this happy drinking a beer. Beyond perfection.

The appearance was a nice looking dark brown color with a one finger white to off white foamy head that dissipated within less than a minute. Light lacing surrounded the glass, thick yet not too thick as it showed enough spliced delicate thin-ness to it (adequate). The smell started off with sweet to robust and roasty coffee and cocoa moving slowly into a real nice malty aroma. The taste rolled into the sweetness nicely with a fairly sweet to roasty with a tad of bitter coffee blending nicely. There’s a nice semi-sweet to roasty aftertaste bleeding into a semi-dry finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium in body with a fairly nice sessionability about it. Carbonation runs nicely underneath fulfilling a fairly light quality but not too light. Overall, as an American Porter, it works. Its nice and definitely one to have this time of the year.

Very dark appearance with significant tan head that desipates very slowly. Nutty aroma. Taste is also nutty without any alcohol aftertaste but it has a little dryness and bite at the end
