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.

JBPortland (1437) - Portland, Maine, USA - NOV 16, 2013
2L growler, pours dark brown, black in glass with big fluffy gorgeous mocha head. Nose is bitter roasty coffee and dark chocolate. Mouthfeel is full bodied, rich, creamy. Taste is big roasted coffee, chocolate, cream. Finish is coffee, sweet malty notes, some nuttiness. Easily the best porter I’ve tried so far. Amazing. (From 11/15 notes)

ippopotamo36 (1256) - Rome, ITALY - APR 29, 2016
Bottle courtesy of luttonm, shared in Rome-Italy. Thank you. Dark brown almost black pour, medium foamy head. Nose: the most balanced coffee/chocolate aroma ever, some roasted. Mouth: clean Porter, none of the notes among coffee and chocolate dominate but all are there in armory. Just elegant! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Mortlach (1775) - Rome, ITALY - APR 27, 2016
750ml bottle shared by luttonm @Johnny’s Off License. Thank you Matt! Pours deep brown/black with a medium and persistent cappuccino head. Aroma is rich and powerful, dark chocolate, gianduja, coffee, licorice... awesome! Flavour is perfectly balanced, medium sweet with a good bitter chocolate end. Medium to full body. Amazing! This beer is a real masterpiece!

beechner224 (993) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - APR 9, 2016
bottle to glass. Pours black with tan head. Aroma is bitter chocolate, malt. Taste is bitter, a bit tinny, get dark cocolate after a few sips. Aftertaste lingers bit - bitter chocolate. This is not my personally favorite porter, but its a good beer.

emartell (328) - Zapopan, Jalisco, MEXICO - APR 8, 2016
Aroma complejo, notas a chocolate, café, maltas tostadas y algo licorosa. De color negro con ligeros destellos granates, corona abundante de espuma de excelente retención. Al paladar es exquisita, equilibrio perfecto, cuerpi ligero, sabor intenso y fácil de tomar. Al paladar al igual que en aroma una cerveza compleja. Notas a chocolate, café, maltas tostadas, sabor torrefacto y ligeramente ahumado, combinado de forma magistral, dando un equilibrio perfecto. En pocas palabras la mejor representante del estilo.

MichaelAwesome (6289) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - MAR 25, 2016
Schon ein ordentlicher Hammer an dicker Flüssigkeit und recht bodenständigen Aromen mit einem angenehmen Hintergrund an Kaffee, Getreiden, Malz und Beeren. Schwer und süffig, dabei erwärmend und befriedigend. Top.

Bottle from trade with HenrikO - many thanks! The beer has got a deep black colour with a smooth head and smooth body. Aroma of woods and malt. Taste of intense malt, woods, pine, chocolate, roast and coffee. Dry-roasty and intense finish. Delicious.

Pours coffee brown with a th but serviceable tan head. Aroma presents tempting coffee, roast malt and subtle chocolate tones. Flavor delivers chocolate, molasses, roast malt, toffee and subtle licorice notes. Mouthfeel features firm and smooth yet fizzy body. Enjoy!

Prufrockstar (1776) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 10, 2016
Bottle, thanks to Reynolds314. Sampled as part of a porter blind tasting (sample 3 of 6). Creamy head; real sexy, best looker of the group by far. Good lacing and retention. Aroma: dough; roast; caramel; urinal cake. Taste: Very roasty. Also comes with some bandaid/adhesive and lightly metallic overtones. Bummer. Lots of roast and chocolate though -- flavor is robust to say the least; maybe a little too robust. Medium body, not chalky. Thick, makes me think of the latter half of a french press coffee. Overall: I love the appearance and palate. I dislike the taste and aroma. Still most interesting of the night so far.

500 ml bottle shared with friends at the Hoppy Pub, Thessaloniki, from trade with Frank. Black color with beige brown head. Roasted malty aroma, coffee, licorice, chocolate, cocoa, caramel. Sweet and bitter taste like aroma. Oily to full silky body with soft carbonation.
