BEER INFO

Hill Farmstead Brewery
Vermont, United States

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.

At last: Everett. After so many missed opportunities - here he sits, in a chilled growler not more than two weeks old. Welcome to my home, brother - please make yourself comfortable; we’ve saved you a seat.

Split two ways; enjoyed by all.

Pours a charcoal black with a cardboard-colored head that lingers. On par with the good looking crowd of the style. Neither outstanding nor detracting.

Adjunct-free aroma is just fucking amazing. French roast, toasted grains, char, chocolate. Unreal. Balanced: sweet, bitter and charred.

Taste is a malt-forward mix of fresh coffee grounds, toasted grains, dark chocolate and bitter hops.

So smooth. Extremely drinkable; not delicate in the least but still a complex drinking experience with its cascade of flavors that washes over the palate with each sip. Minimal ingredients, huge body.
