COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Everett (1908-1939) 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 Porter is crafted from American malted barley, English and German roasted malts, American hops, our ale yeast, and water from our well. It is unfiltered and naturally carbonated. Decadent in its depth, with a complex backbone of chocolate, coffee, and malty sweetness, this is the ale that I dream to have shared with Everett. 7.5% ALC/VOL 21º P Ingredients: Pale, Caramel, and Chocolate Malt, Roasted Barley, Columbus hops; Ale Yeast, and our Well Water.

GothGargoyle (945) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 5, 2014
Dark brown with a good light chocolate head. Bottle was a bit of a gusher. Aroma is chocolate, roasted cashews, coffee, dates, graham cracker. Slightly creamy mouthfeel, full bodied, roasty on the palate with some good balancing malt. Taste is coffee, chocolate, roasted malts, hint of oak. Nice

Had on draft at CCB Brewpub in Tampa(!). I don't know how they got it, but I'm thankful they did. Typical black pour with an inviting, roasty aroma. The mouthfeel on this is amazing. Viscous without being syrupy, I've never encountered a texture this velvety on a porter before. It seriously had the feel of a quality barrel aged imperial stout. The taste was equally impressive. Sweeter than most other porters with a moderate roastiness and hippiness. Just an exquisitely balanced beer. Best porter I've ever had. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Ferris (2046) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 30, 2013
Bottle - Roast malts, chocolate and the slightest soy. Jet black with a rich brown head. Roasted malts with a tiny bit of chocolate and a roast finish. A great porter where the malts are the king. Great to see a classic so well and simply done.

So robust. Lots of chocolate and coffee with a creamy soft body and not bittery harshness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

illidurit (2052) - Petaluma, USA - DEC 9, 2013
Bottle courtesy jcvanderbilt. Pours pretty near to black with a creamy cocoa head. Soft, sweet aroma with forward notes of milk chocolate and caramel, slight lactose, slight sawdust. Flavor is really potent and deep, bright up front with fresh-brewed espresso and then transforming into a long chocolate-anise denseness to finish. Subtle accents of smoke, burnt bread, and molasses, plus a lingering zest like eating roasted coffee beans. Thick, silky body with low carbonation. This one really pushes the limits of how good a straight-up porter can be. Luscious stuff.
