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.

On tap at the Hill Farmstead First Anniversary Party. Served in a Hill Farmstead long-stem tulip. Pours a very, very dark brown color with a good off-white head and some really nice lacing on the way down. The nose brings forward some really nice coffee along with some roast and earthy characteristics. A bit of chocolate in the background as well as some hops. The flavor has nice coffee character along with some roast. Chocolate throughout. Mouthfeel is really excellent and the oats come through. No noticeable booze. Really a fantastic stout.

This poured a very dark brown color with a great tan head. Aroma was of light smokey coffee, very roasted malt almost burnt, and some dark chocolate too. Flavor was very smooth dark roasted coffee with light dark chocolate and some decent citrusy bittering hops. Great.

dark brown, oily heavy white lacing. Roast and light cardboard nose, bit hot, milky chocolate qualities but also bitter. Flavor is oily, heavy roast, light chocolate, more grapefruit with a creamy texture, nice contrast between citrus and roast, though finish a bit empty.

Black pour with tan head and lace. Funk of roasty chocolate malt. Sweet floral with a light chocolate flavor. Good carbonation but a tad thin. Nice beer.

Tap at Capone’s for RBSG 2011. Pour is a blackish ruby with a large tan head leaving excellent lace. Nose is salted dried meat and tobacco. Taste is salty (no olives thankfully) with mild smoke, sharp and full earthy rye, mild nutty bitterness, hoppy to the point of verging on Black IPA. Very nice though. It’s so nice to have a beer made with coffee that doesn’t taste like coffee. Very good.

Milk chocolate and roast nose with a touch of dark fruit and piney hops. The taste is light to moderately sweet, moderately bitter, with dark chocolate, some molasses, citrus hops and prunes. Really nice stout, could use a but of work before being compared to kzoo though.
