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.

2015-09-23 En fût @ Hill Farmstead. Bière presque noir surmontée d'une mousse brune. Arômes de café et de malt torréfié avec une pointe d'avoine. En bouche, café et malt rôti enrobés de chocolat qui laisse place à un houblon résineux. En finale, une pointe de conifère et une amertume prononcée. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Black body, thin tan head, sparse lacing. Assertive roasted coffee, some oats, earthy bitterness, and some licorice. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, soft sweetness, and, despite the roasted qualities, finishes a bit muted.

Scopey (11991) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 2, 2015
Bottle at Mr Smith’s HF-dominated wedding celebration. It pours jet black with a thick tan head. The nose is rich, decadent, big espresso coffee vibe, dark chocolate, rich roast, mild acidity and coffee cake. The taste is rich, yet smooth, deep roast coffee, mild acidity, dark chocolate torte, light vanilla, toasty dark bread and a touch of umami with a smooth, roasty finish. Medium body, moderate carbonation and velvety mouth-feel. Not crazy complex, yet flavoursome and extremely well-balanced. Excellent.

Bottle a few weeks old. Pours a thick black with a small tan head. Aroma of coffee and roast. Taste is semi dry and lightly bitter from the malts and coffee. Gently acidity. Mouthfeel is very full and silky. Very filling. Huge dose of coffee. This is a stout on steroids. Amazing.

wchesser (1867) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 5, 2015
Bottle from cpetrone-thanks, Chris! About 15 months on this, maybe a bit too long, but still drinking great. Dark black, medium high body, dark coffee crema colored foam on edges of the glass. Big dark roast coffee nose, light vanilla, dark roast malts. Very smooth, burnt malts, and quality dark coffee, with some vanilla like notes to balance it out.
