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.

From notes taken during a tasting a couple weeks back. Aroma has a nice roast note with faint chocolate. Light notes of dark fruit with hints of tobacco and leather. Pours dark brown with moderately thick, dark tan head. Good retention and lacing. Flavor is very roast forward with light chocolate character. Lighter notes of tobacco and leather with light notes of dark fruit. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth. Overall, a nice porter but not necessarily an exceedingly special one. I found the roast character a bit strong in the flavor.

UPDATED: NOV 30, 2014 Many, many thanks to tom10101 for this one! Finally I can rate it! Pours a really dark brown with a thin beige head that leaves spotty lacing. Nose is of coffee, char and slight hops. Some nuts. Taste is of chocolate, moderately bitter. Some coffee and alcohol, licorice. Not too sweet. Body is full and carbonation moderately low. Smooth and lightly sticky. Nice and comforting!

humlelala (1136) - DENMARK - OCT 11, 2014
(on tap @ Mikkeller Viktoriagade) Pours pitch black with medium, toffee head. Good retention and beautiful lace. Decent regeneration. Aroma is nicely smoothly roasted with notes of coffee and chocolate and a hint of smoke. Very smooth. Creamy texture, medium body, medium carbonation and a lingering, mildly sweet finish. Flavour has some ascerbicity from the roasting but it is complemented nicely by a carefully moderated residual sweetness that never gets cloying. A well balanced and quite drinkable porter.

Tap at Mikkeller & Friends. Aroma has chocolates, vanilla and roasted malts. Pours black with a small brown head. Taste is delicious with some chocolates, vanilla, coffee and is very sweet and nice. Palate offers a full body and places itself nicely in the mouth. Overall a very solid beer. Nice!
