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.

From notes: Poured from a growler brought back to "the city" by a friend.

A small but thick head forms. Beer is super dark and a swirl around the glass reveals a very viscous beer. It clings leaving a dark golden slickness almost like molases. As viscous as a beer twice its ABV. One of the most visualy beautiful beers I've seen.

Smell is roasted malt, a little plumb, other dark fruits. Just a whiff of alcohol.

Taste is big bold roasted malt and molasses up front that fades quickly revealing a sweet finish. Further sips bring out the sweetness.

Thick, medium carbonation, slick.

Overall this beer tastes great up front but suffers from the overly sweet finish. I understand that there is supposed to be a bit of that in a porter but it goes too far. Almost milk stout like. Could use a touch more hops to even things up.
