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.

From bottles, on draught, this is one beer that’s always been a show in itself. No matter what I was drinking before or after, it is a rare day the one in which you drink an Everett that is not the highlight of the day. And for what it’s worth, dark malt flavours are certainly not among my favourite features in the broad universe of beer... So cracking up an Everett and drinking it in front of the screen, here are my impressions. A vigorous beige cap stays above the close to blackness. Ashes blend lovingly around fudge in this complex malt nose where all kinds of chocolatey nuances dominate the caramel found in many a porter. Toasted pumpernickel, cigar leafy/smokiness, leather.. the flavours are broad, varied, complementary, never heading too much toward sweetness nor toward bitterness. Hops are not subtle, but are kept under control by the sheer malt presence. Round, luscious palate, never feeling heavy and certainly not syrupy, but straightly dense and compact, stealing a vanilla kiss toward the finish, but otherwise remaining disciplined, adding woodsy, truffle, coffee laden layers and inspiring the drinker to expand its dark malt aroma descriptors range. The texture is simply flawless, with just the right carbonation dosage, soft bubbles enhancing drinkability while never bringing forth more acidity and bite than required, leaving the rich maltiness the grounding area it needs to land its intricacies on the palate. Tough to imagine anything I would change.

Growler rapporté de la brasserie et dégusté en compagnie de Mademoiselle Irina. Bière très sombre et mousseuse décorant les parois de mon verre de dentelles et de picots blancs sur fond noir. Un dalmatien vu en négatif! Nez complexe de café Jamaïcain amer, d’une gousse de vanille naturelle, de cacao et de céréales bien grillées-torréfiées mais non brûlées. C’est à la fois subtil, séduisant et viril. En bouche, beaucoup d’amertume de café. Les grains rôtis ayant libéré un sucre résiduel non négligeable, cette bière est ronde et soyeuse, tout en étant d’une impressionnante légèreté! Une magnifique pétillance vient titiller le bout de ma langue qui fourche à chaque gorgée tellement ce que je déguste en ce moment est complexe. La poudre de cacao. Oui une poudre d’une chocolat noir de qualité exceptionnel à 99% de cacao sans le côté râpeux. D’une longueur presque infinie, la bière coule doucement dans mon oesophage admiratif, laissant derrière elle, ma bouche satinée et dans l’attente de la prochaine gorgée. Peu de gens peuvent encore se vanter d’avoir connu le frère Everett du grand-père de la famille, mais il doit être fier, là où il repose, qu’une telle bière fut brassée en hommage à sa mémoire!
