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.

On tap during Philly beer week- pours blackish with a tannish offwhite head. aroma takes your breath away, chocolate, coffee, malt, beckoning a sip. Sip is as good as aroma. Big malty flavors wash over the pallet, with overtones of chocolate coffee espresso everything a porter should be. I don’t know how many times I said this is the best porter I had when I was drinking this. It was more than once.

bottle shared by Mike, Wow. this was one good porter, easily as good as olfabrikken (from memory), just awesome flavor, really balanced easily drinkable, a little light in the body but for a porter it was definitely a porter not trying to be too much.. awesome.

Wow. Didn’t know Porter could taste this good--it’s up there with any Imperial Stout I’ve tried. From a 750ml bottle fresh from the brewery.

Bottle from David - thanks! Black pour with a froth of expresso tan foam. Aroma is bone dry roast with oats, silky chocolate, light hop bitterness on the back third, and dark fruit notes into the finish. Taste is oat, roast, soft and bitter chocolate, coffee bitterness, hop bitterness, and distinct raisin and plum (or perhaps simply the darker malt showing) through the finish with some lingering hop bitterness. Mouthfeel is smooth and clean. Masterpiece of a porter.

UPDATED: MAR 1, 2013 Deep black brown body, moderate sized dirty-white head. Spotty lacing. Nose is complex with hints of caramel chocolate roast and molasses. Flavor is similar in construction to the nose with sweeter malts dominate without being cloying. Roasted characteristics are the highlight. Mouthfeel is spot on. Medium bodied, silky, mellow carbonation, light sweetness, with a hint of a twang. Simply divine. I think this displaces Taddy Porter as my favorite porter on the block. Well done.

Shared with my wife who is just now sneaking sips of beer after her pregnancy. At the time of this review, this is the #2 American Porter on the top style list and this beer is also on the Top Beers - Popular list at spot #70. Beer is black / dark brown and hazy with a nice off white head of small tan bubbles, lacing, nice carbonation... Aroma is mildly roasty, mildly alcohol, smells like a porter should, mildly sweet. Beer is medium to light in body, pretty sweet on the lead off but the back palate is all porter all the time. Great little beer, wonderful how the alcohol is there without the beer being boozy, sweet, strong, drinkable...nice.

Bottle from joeybones3. Full disclosure, a little of this bottle had leaked in transit so I drank it right away. A light hiss when cracking the cap. Very tasty stuff; lots of mocha flavor, perhaps tilting toward straight out chocolate, along with notes of licorice, sweet molasses, ash, and roasty bitterness in the finish. Full-bodied, robust indeed, yet silky smooth and creamy in the body. One of the better Porters I’ve had and a trip to Vermont this summer will allow me to give it another go.
