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.

Opaque dark chocolate bar color, gorgeous tan head via pour from very fresh bottle acquired in trade. Huge chocolate and cacao nose, grassy/straw hop aromas, too. Hits the lips with blast of sweetness and immediate complexity. Robust is the perfect adjective, bursting with flavor, rich, thick but not overly heavy. Toasty malts are absolutely perfect with the middle of the mouthful feeling creamy and desert-like. The hops provide a very distinct grapefruit aroma as it warmed and some citrus notes lingered with the grassiness at the very finish. An amazing porter, easily the best I’ve had in a bottle. Dying to try more from this brewery!!

On m’avait vanté le charisme d’Everett dès mon arrivé chez Hill Farmstead. Après plusieurs dégustations aussi pugnaces les unes des autres, Everett réussi a briller. Les sucres proviennent de partout et font tout, le corps est riche mais digeste et les houblons fonctionnent en symbiose avec la balance des saveurs. Noix de coco, tabac, chocolat, caramel, figues, nougat et une liste de végétaux résineux et aromatiques. En fût comme en bouteille, un chef d’oeuvre.

Wow. This is freaking good. Reminds me a lot of Founders Porter. Some citrus hops and an amazing roast malt depth. This makes me want to go buy a sixes of Founders right now! Fantastic balance of roast and pine and citrus.

22 oz bomber into a tulip glass. No clue what age/vintage it is, but I believe its somewhat fresh. A - Pitch black body which lets zero light through. Massive fluffy mocha head. Settles down to a frothy cap with crazy amounts of retention. The foam just clings to the glass the entire time. Probably the best lacing I’ve ever seen on a beer. S - Robust indeed. Deep roasty malts, fresh espresso beans, sweet and lactic milk chocolate, and a touch of bitter mineral rich water. Finishes with sweet and rich vanilla. Perfect aroma. T - Follows the nose with a pleasant mix of intense espresso beans, milk chocolate, vanilla and perfectly roasted malts. Just a touch of hop bitterness to work against the sweetness and richness of it all. Booze isn’t present in the taste but there is a light warmth happening in the throat. M - Slick and coating mouth feel. Very silky with a high level of carbonation that prevents it from being cloying. O - The best porter I’v ever had, easily. Which sucks considering how tough it is to get bottles of this beer. Hype and availability aside, Hill Farmstead is the real deal. Unbelievable beer.

Black with medium dark brown head. Aroma is all roast. Taste is smooth, roasty, none of the tartness that ruins most porters for me. Body is smooth with medium to light crisp carbonation. This is the best porter I have ever had.

Draft at railroad. Pours pitch black with no head to speak of. Aroma is chocolate and coffee and very sweet. Taste is chocolate up front with a sharp coffee ground finish.

reggiedunlop (3449) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 24, 2012
Pours pitch black with a creamy medium mocha head...looks thick. Aroma has very nice roastiness with mild notes of espresso and dark fruit...some dark chocolate. Flavor follows suit...very rich and roasty...not much burnt but nice espresso, chocolate, and dark fruit...not muddled at all! Mouthfeel is medium/full and creamy with a bold roasty finish that has nice bitterness. Fabulous!

Stine (1657) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 15, 2012
A seemingly massive, robust, and sophisticated take on this style that almost totally takes off. Giant and deep aroma of purplish fruit, chocolate and coffee, heavy on roast and caramelized sugars. Flavor is similar but packed with a bit more forthright sweetness, especially heavy on a frustratingly thin vanilla note. Medium palate; given the indicators, it ought to be heavier. Finishes with heavy licorice and a somewhat long semi-sweet smack of maple and wood; close to an excellent example.

22 oz. from the Booyamachine himself. There was a lot of hype surrounding this beer when it was bestowed upon me. Usually that would be the death knell for any brew but this one did not disappoint. "Robust" doesn’t even begin to describe how ballsy this beer is. Huge roast and an interesting hop profile make the finish pretty bitter. Makes for a deep an thought-provoking beer. My only qualm is that mine smelled funny. The coffee aromas are fighting with some kind of vegetal/sour smell. I think I poured it in a dirty glass, which is a shame. Now I’ll never complete my BJCP.
