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, we barrel aged this Porter in a Bourbon Barrel (that previously held Buffalo Trace bourbon and Sam Adam’s Utopias) for 7 months. Naturally carbonated and hand bottled. This is one of only 300 bottles... and one of which I dream to have shared with Everett. 8% ALC/VOL 21ºP

Editor’s Note, Released in 2011, waxed 500ML bottle

Dark black pour, deep khaki-brown head, spotty lacing. Nose is roast, caramel, vanilla, oak, bourbon, brown sugar. Flavor is similar with a nice bourbon barrel emphasis on a moderately roasted and semi-sweet porter base. Full bodied, non-cloying, lightly sweet, roasted finish.

yngwie (16482) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 18, 2012
Bottle, 22oz, at TFODRBSG 2012. A firm, dense, light tan head forms over a black body. Some curtains left. A bit weak on the nose maybe, but what’s there is lovely. Chocolate, some coffee and roasted malts, and a touch of booze and vanilla. Full-bodied, warming and soft on the carbonation. Lasting, warming finish. A really lovely one, looking gorgeous, smelling and tasting really lovely, and with lots of moreish-ness. If I’m to be a bit negative, I think it’s a bit too much on the warming side. 120818

Tmoney99 (13334) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 24, 2012
Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured a dark reddish brown color with an average frothy light brown head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate toasted chocolate malt, coffee and bourbon alcohol aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy toasted malt sweet flavor with a medium complex bourbon dark malt sweet finish of moderate to long duration. Standout complex brew.
