Notes / Commercial Description:
Earl (1911-1985) 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 Stout is crafted from American malted barley, Flaked Oats, English roasted malts, American hops, Organic Guatemalan Coffee, our ale yeast, and water from our well. It is unfiltered and naturally carbonated. A silhouette of coffee and malt - an embodiment of complexity and drinkability, this is the ale that I dream to have shared with Earl.

Pale, Caramel, and Chocolate Malt, Roasted Barley, Columbus hops; Ale Yeast, and our Well Water.

Wow, this beer is absolutely delicious! Pours beautifully to a nice thick bubbling up creamy head, outstanding chewy mouthfeel, great balance of coffee without much bitterness or high acidity, slight sweetness, all complimented each other especially when it warmed up to 55-60 degrees.

Fortunate enough to have had this on-draft at Parker Pie Co. in West Glover, Vt. My good friend, a Kingdom-native and Hill aficionado who had tried this before me was underwhelmed. I figured to give it a try.

A: Silky black and oily with a gorgeous mocha head. Looks great.

S: Coffee, syrupy, chocolately. Smells great.

T: Whoa. Damn. I usually find non-imperial stouts watery and sour, but this hits the nail on the head. Sweet and sour, but well balanced in it. Coffee is most pronounced with a good deal of chocolate, also some vanilla. Absolutely fantastic.

M: Very well done. One of the few Oatmeal stouts I've had with a good mouthfeel. Thick and satisfying. As my underwhelmed friend observed, "it's like a meal." Probably moreso than a Guinness, frankly.

O: Glad to have brought a bottle home with me. Try it for yourself if you can, but this is the only Oatmeal stout I've ever ben wow'ed by. Fantastic.
