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.

Growler filled at the brewery. Pours black with a small rim of light tan head. Aroma of rich sweet roasted malt and a hint of coffee, graham cracker, and chocolate malt. Flavor of coffee and charred/burnt malt upfront with a roasty malt finish, light bitter coffee grounds, and bitter chocolate. The coffee presence in this one is not super bold, just melds well with the stout base of the beer. Very enjoyable. 7/4/8/4/15 [3.8/5]

Sampled from the tap at the brewpub. Poured black with a brown head that lasted throughout the beer. Aroma was full of strong bitter coffee with some dark grains that helped quell the bite of the coffee. Flavor was full of coffee as well with a nice creamy dark bread backing that balanced the beer nicely.

Nice balanced stout. Complex aromas and flavours, coffee notes present but not overwhelming.

Had twice now and it is just awesome. Just nice and smooth, well balanced. Great level of roasted malts, smooth body. A touch of vanilla and sweetness with a surprising hop balance. Nothing overly bitter either. Adds to the rich coffee that also has that light bitter roasted flavor. Well done!

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - MAR 8, 2011
THIS BEER IS STUPID GOOD. Pours a black body with a tan roast y head. A bitter roasted malt chocolate body. A hint of a vanilla sweetness to balance but never sweet. Just a really solid drinking stout. 3 pints later i forgot about my 6 hour drive. Nice to see a brewer that can make an awesome ipa, saison, & stout. Seriously underated.

Draught@Mikkeller Bar, Copenhagen. Black as night with a small tan head. Aroma was sweetish with traces of roast ,coffee and oatmeal. Fairly lively carbonation and thickish mouthfeel. Flavour was similar with the addition of some dark chocolate and barrel notes. Also detected an almost peaty, earthy quality. Hoppage crept into play towards the close of the swig to leave a bitter finish. Tasty and enjoyable stuff.

On tap. Black and opaque with a light brown head. Distinct coffee aroma in fine balance with the hard roasted malts. Medium-bodied, sweetish hard roasted malts and vanilla - some coffee notes yes but not as pronounced as in the nose. Light malt bitterness. Well crafted. 190211
