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.

Marsiblursi (2985) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JAN 9, 2012
(Bottle) Pours dark brown to black with a large sized pale brown head. The aroma holds caramelly and chocolaty malt alongside grapefruity, piny and floral hops. Undertones of tar, ash, meat, ginger, blackberries, cinnamon and cardamom, sweet liquorice alongside a tiny whisper of smoke. Round and friendly nose, really well balanced. The flavour is light sweet, light to medium bitter and tiny acidic. Asphalt, chocolate, coffee, dark caramel, mild citrus, flowers and sweet liquorice. The mouthfeel is super clean and round with a medium carbonation. Pine, tar, liquorice and coffee on the finish. Medium bodied.

mansquito (3114) - Nueva York, New York, USA - DEC 29, 2011
Farmhouse, Burlington, VT 12oz ($6.50): Pours a beautiful black with a brown head. Aroma is burnt malts, burnt malts, and smoke, and burnt malts. Normally, I would say a porter has chocolate and coffee; this one doesn’t. All that there is is burnt malts and a delicious sweet fruitiness. It’s like candy that went through a fire of deliciousness. That being said, this is anything but a chugger. I had to nurse this baby, but each wee sip was a pleasure. I like this beer, and am not surprised that it somehow found itself in the 100th percentile.

OmegaX (1157) - Florida, USA - DEC 27, 2011
Draft at CCB. Loads of chocolate malt and some smoke/roast on the nose. Poured a dark black porter color with a nice dark, tan head. Solid lacing. Taste is very similar with a slick mouthfeel. Very drinkable with a nice bitter finish (but not too bitter). Great stuff.

GAManiac (1944) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - DEC 5, 2011
500ml bottle. Pours pitch black with a big rocky tan head that recedes very slowly and leaves great lacing. Aroma is not as roasty as I was expecting with more sweet milk chocolate and malty sweetness. There is a light roasted black malts and coffee beans. Taste mirrors the aroma with some smooth caramel malts and dark chocolate dominating up front. The backbone is roasty but not overly so. There is definitely some chocolate sweetness in the finish as well as a hint of smoke. The mouthfeel is excellent and about as creamy as I’ve ever had in a porter. Solid carbonation. This is one of the sweeter porters I’ve tasted recently and almost tastes like a smoky chocolate stout. Really good stuff.

Hill Farmstead is quickly becoming one of my favorite breweries. Nice brown pour with aromas of roasted malts, coffee and chocolate.\ Taste is of dry chocolate, roast, breaf and caramel malts. A very oily mouth feel , but it is good.

Reynolds314 (2103) - Connecticut, USA - NOV 23, 2011
This is what a porter can be and it really blew me away. Taste is dry roasted and chocolaty with just the right amount of clean spicy/citrusy hop profile as to not take away from the important elements of this porter. I couldnt believe a porter could be this amazing.

Tmoney99 (10102) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 20, 2011
Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured a dark reddish brown color with an average frothy light brown head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate toasted chocolate malt, coffee and alcohol aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy toasted malt sweet flavor with a medium complex dark malt bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration. Standout complex brew.
