COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Everett (1908-1939) was our grandfatherís 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 21ļ P Ingredients: Pale, Caramel, and Chocolate Malt, Roasted Barley, Columbus hops; Ale Yeast, and our Well Water.

Courtesy of BOLTZ7555!!! Thanks Jason. It pours dark murky mahogany body that supports a thin tan head of foam. The aroma offers up dark roasted malts, some brownie, malt balls, some black licorice and a mild cedar wood like spiciness. The taste is rich with a mix of dark roasted malts, molasses and rolling into yummy sticky chocolate brownie. It gets a bit spicy like it has been aged on cedar or thatís just sort of a spicy black licorice sensation. Dandy stuff.

Bottle pour by iadler. Pours dark oily brown with a nice soapy khaki tan head that settles to a wispy film an sudsy collar. Aroma has a sweet smokiness of malt subtle anise and chocolate. Taste is sweet roasted smokey malt and coco along with a decent bitterness. Palate is full chalky an dry. What can I say the hype lives on, itís lovely!

Bottle shared by Iadler! Dark black pour, little lacing and dark chocolate aroma. Flavor is also bitter dark chocolate, sweet caramel and smoky peat on the aftertaste. Really damn nice.

UPDATED: DEC 29, 2013 Bottle. Very dark thick pour with a beige head. Huge aroma and taste of chocolate, coffee, licorice, and some smoke. Phenomenal.

jkwood04 (4433) - Connecticut, USA - OCT 11, 2012
UPDATED: JUL 14, 2013 On tap at the beer store. Pours black. Aroma of lots of roasted malts, coffee and dark chocolate, and some floral hops. Flavor very strong, and a little smoky. Smooth to thicker texture. A really good beer. EDIT: Poured from a growler. Still black with a lacy, beige head. So much from the dark, roasted malts. A great porter.

Poured a thick oily glass into a smokestack glass. Aroma is coffee, chocolate and smoke. Taste is very well balanced mixture of milk chocolate, dark chocolate, molasses, toffee and booze. This bottle is still a bit hot bit it's very drinkable. Finishes pretty dry. Great beer!

NobleSquirrel (3438) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 5, 2012
Bottle shared by drewbeerme. Pours a deep brown-black with a dark tan head. The nose is fantastic. Cocoa and toasty malt. Faint herbal hops play in the back ground. Rich and inviting. On tasting, there is a nice medium body, almost creamy. No astringency. Chocolate and roast, balanced bitterness overall. Light sweet note. Superb porter, for sure.

Not overly aggressive...just incredibly balanced. The flavor profile, aroma, and creaminess are a perfectly orchestrated symphony. Cocoa, dark-roasted coffee, gooey caramel and mouthwatering toffee, along with decadent fudge, brownie batter, and molasses are evident. Do believe Iíve experienced better in the style (Olfabrikken Porter, Funky Buddha MBC Porter, Dark Knight Returns) although this is one of the most traditional. Could drink this stuff all day...if readily available. Damn!

Pours stout-like black color with minimal head. Aroma of chocolate, dark fruit, and coffee. Chocolate and coffee flavor with some dark fruit sweetness and hint of smoke. One of the best Iíve had in a while.

500ml bottle from Winooski Beverage Warehouse purchased last May (thanks guys!) poured into stem glass. OK wait. WOW. Pours one of the deepest and most opaque black Iíve ever seen. Taking a LED flashlight through the glass, you canít see a thing!! Head is practically nonexistent, only a small ring prevails. Aroma is, oh gosh, a symphony of cocoa, dark chocolate, dried fruits, tobacco, slight vanilla, coffee, caramel malt, very faint alcohol, and a nice blend of hops in the background, wow, seriously I understand why the guy at Winooski just dumped this in my hands when I asked him to show me around and mentionned that stouts and porters were one of my favs...!!! They had just received a case and it was almost gone 20mins later...Ok back on track! Taste is medium-sweet, bitterness is floating in the background. This is REALLY well-balanced; the only other American robust porter I had was Smuttynoseís and although I liked that one really really much for its sugar contents and milk-chocolate like qualities, I like the Everett a bit more for its balance and more "mature" characteristics. If it was possible, Iíd give it 4.65 as I gave Smuttynoseís 4.6. Palate is also out of this world, so slick and smooth...with a soft carbonation which slightly tingles your tongue. Finish is long, roasty (pretty rare, normally it degrades into acidity) and a just a bit bitter. Overall, you know what? I just fell off my chair, and no, Iím not drunk. This is a beer to be treated with respect, a masterpiece. I waited from May until the early days of autumn to drink this as I had a feeling it would be a great, comforting drink to accompany a chilly night and although this might be getting a bit too poetic, well, I was right. Bravo.
