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.

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.

wyzzywyz22 (1945) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - MAR 3, 2011
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.
