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.

A- pours a heavy dark brown with a 1/4" medium tan head. Decent lacing. S- heavy chalk, earth, coffee and bitter chocolate up front. Smoked malts and beef bouillon. Sourdough pretzels. Hop notes are present but understated - biting citrus, grass and soap. M- oily and slightly bitter medium palate with a medium dense body. T- bitter chocolate and citrus to start. Some chalk and salty smoke follow. Mildly doughy, coffee, dry grasses, orange rind, and a prune middle. Sustained ending is oatmeal, and a return to baker's chocolate, coffee, dirt and citrus.

On draught at Three Penny. Pours a deepest darkest brown oily liquid with a tan head. Big malty aromas with lots of complex flavors going on. Very filling full bodied brew. Delicious.

Pours black with a super dark brown head. Nose is intensely roasted, coffee, resinous hops, inky, burnt malts. Flavor is super coffee, super roasty dark malts with a heavy roasty acrid dark malt bitterness but very full, thi k and rich. Bitter finish. Really quite nice.

Bottle at home, massive thanks to Leighton for gifting me this one, 20/09/13. Pitch black with a mahoosive coffee tan head that dissipates but retains well. This really looks the bollocks! Nose is roast malt, cocoa, molasses, chocolate maltesers Taste comprises chocolate malt, light mineral notes, cocoa powder, Medium bodied, soft carbonation, smooth and massaging on the palate. Totally justifies its place as the number 1 stout !

Opaque black - brown beer, big fluffy tan head. Softish palate, light and airy. Light touch of dark malt with a good streak of medium chocolate (ie not dark and not milk). Super light roast. Very modest citric hop provides a counterpoint. Trace of red berry fruits. Airy finish. Pretty fine porter. LIght and super drinkable.

Good beer, not great IMO. Reminds me of Southampton Imperial Russian Stout. Probably would smooth out some after a bit of age.

neepsntatties (1114) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 5, 2013
Bottle courtesy of Rick G. from Lardo. Colour...basically black, with a very thick, tan head. Nose...milk chocolate, macchiato, chocolate cream and a bit of booze. Palate...eminently creamy with gobs of chocolate ganache and fondant. There’s a velvety feel throughout the palate and plenty of milk chocolate and bittersweet chocolate. The booze is present but melds exceedingly well. The finish is dryish but still sweet. A delightful treat and one of the best porters I’ve EVER had.

Bottled@PBF VIII. More or less black colour with a small brown head. Aroma is coffee, caramel, toffee and some slight earthy notes. Flavour is roasted, toffeeish, some ashes and mild earthy notes. Balanced, and though the cap did leak (due to tiong who brought it), this one was nicely balanced.
