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.

I could see this working nicely with barrels. A bit on the ashy bitter side for my tastes but nicely rich and creamy.

On-tap at The Farmhouse in Burlington, Vt.

Looks black, but some light shines through. Head leaves minimal lacing.

Smells of burnt caramel and thick chocolate. Pretty robust.

Taste is heavy on the chocolate. Some burnt black malt flavors. Dark caramel. I don't really taste any coffee here. Light bitterness in the finish.

Medium mouthfeel. Just right for a porter.

This is a solid porter. Not sure if it's the hop notes or the burnt caramel flavors I pick up, but it's a bit different than some other porters. Not a bad thing.

Rich, but mellow. Dark in the glass -- a rich, deep brown like a cup of black coffee. (But alas, doesn't get much head and then that fades quickly.) Flavor is robust -- rich roasted grains with a touch of bitterness to finish it. But it mellows out nicely.

Pours dark dark brown nice mocha head with good retention and lacing and viscous

Big Roasted notes coffee back tones, some dark chocolate

Like the nose it's big roasted mats almost has a smokey character to it, chocolate and coffee back end and the roastedness lingers afterword.

Light bodied, not as viscous as it looks in the glass. Medium carb

Overall it's a good porter

opaque black not all that viscous but still only a slight see through at the edges. smell is chocolatey with a hint of coffee and some caramel. Taste kind of follows the nose but seems a tad light and the hops are rather pronounced for this style of beer. There is a piney undertone throughout. Feel is smooth and light. Overall a rather good porter that flirts with the stout line. True to its essence with a strong hoppy profile.
