Style: American Porter

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.50%

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.

This is an amazing beer. I've never tasted a beer that featured its malt flavor so prominently. Distinctive roasted malt flavor, almost exaggerated. And underneath the roast, caramel sweetness. Very clean, nothing muddled. Almost reminds me of fresh un-fermented wort. Probably the thickest mouthfeel of any beer this abv I've ever had also. Pretty wonderful, intense, perfect porter. That said, if you don't like intensely roasty, burnt flavors, this won't be your bag.

Everett pours very dark, nearly black with a medium tan head. Aroma is mostly chocolate with some roasted aromas. Maybe a little spice in there as well. Taste follows the nose with added complexity. Roasted chocolate is the dominant flavor, but there's also some caramel sweetness in there as well. The soft, creamy mouthfeel takes this beer to another level. Great Porter!
