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. 7.2% ALC/VOL 18º P Ingredients: Pale, Caramel, and Chocolate Malt, Roasted Barley, Columbus hops; Ale Yeast, and our Well Water.

yourilevesque (1073) - Quebec, CANADA - MAY 3, 2016
Dégustée en compagnie de Mademoiselle Irina qui rédige en ce moment son plaidoyer de non culpabilité pour une contredanse routière. Le liquide qui emplit ma coupe arborant fièrement les armoiries de la Brasserie est d’un noir rutilant. En coulant dans mon verre, le liquide me paraît léger et en roulant, laisse sur les parois de mon verre une pré-mousse à la lente ascension vers une ligne d’équilibre nette comme l’horizon. Mon verre reste décoré et tacheté comme un léopard d’une dentelle des plus serrées et artistiques. Nez délicat et léger de café, de malts rôtis accompagnés de la Signature de la Maison qui maîtrise les houblons à la perfection. Très complexe pour un stout ni impérial ni barriqué. Dès la première gorgée, je suis saisi par la douceur de ce liquide à la torréfaction remarquable. Un liquide presque lacté me coule en bouche dans un élan de délicatesse ponctué par une fine bulle des plus élégantes. Un somptueux café froid mêlé d’un chocolat amer, d’un houblon estival et léger. Cette bière est l’archétype de l’élégance.

Look; black beer, beige vanished top. Aroma; ice coffee, caramel, zebra candies, grassy hops. Taste; ice coffee black sort of, caramel, dark prune peels fermented through something - and finishes very well liquorice-pruned. Palate; good body, soft, good. Overall; tasty stuff indeed.

k0mpsa (2243) - Tuusula, FINLAND - APR 16, 2016
Tap at mikkeller and friends, copenhagen. Black color, brown head. Aroma has roasty malts, coffee, some smooth vanilla notes. Roasted malts, coffee, little bit high co2, some licorice notes. High carbonation lowers points, its ruining palate. It’s okay but somethings missing.

Skinnyviking (8435) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 16, 2016
Draught at Mikkeller Bar Copenhagen. Low but lasting creamy light brown head. Pitch black body. Powerful roasted malt coffee aroma and flavor with a fair amount of hops bitterness. Coffee very dominant but generally speaking the beer is well balanced with an alcohol level that seems just right.
