BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Hill Farmstead Brewery
Vermont, United States
hillfarmstead.com

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.

Dark and nearly back with a light khaki head and great lacing. Notes of coffe, dark bakers chocolate, light smoke, earth and caramel buried underneath it all. Medium body, creamy and slightly sticky on the finish. This is the best non adjunct Porter I've ever had. Remarkably well done.

I have drank a lot of porters in my day and there must be something in the water at HF, because this beer was outstanding. Strong chocolate tones with some roast and finished with a nice sweetness. One of the best porters I have probably ever drank.

Poured from a half-litre bottle into a St. Bernardus goblet. Bottled 31 August 2015.
4.75/4.25/4.5/4.75/4.75
A: Black, opaque, with a finger of frothy brown head.
S: It smells like a porter...malty, rich, and meaty. Hint of smoke and roast, but mostly cream. Not as potent as might be.
T/M: Thick and rich, with a potent meaty-rich-syrupy-thick strain running through the middle of it. The malty sweetness and the creamy body hint towards vanilla notes, but the bulk of it is lightly smoky chocolate. The aftertaste is clean, bready coffee grounds.
O: The quintessence of a porter. This is precisely what it purports to be and is meant to be.
