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.

UPDATED: SEP 29, 2014 Bonne stout aux arômes de torréfaction, céréales et chocolat. Je m’attendais a être plus émerveillé vu l’origine du produit, mais c’était une bonne stout réconfortante sans plus de magie. Tout de même parmi les meilleures que j’ai bu! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
