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.

Bouttle thanks to trade with bigda83! Pours an opaque black from 500mL with thin lacy brown head that leaves moderate lace. Aroma of roasty malt, earthy middle, and dark chocolate undertones. Taste is more toward the chocolate, with a bit of fruity yeast character. Thicker than normal porter, and definitely well done, but not sure it’s as great as everyone makes it out to be.

Bule (1525) - California, USA - JAN 29, 2016
500ml bottle from 08/2015. Pours a black color with a small amount of head. Strong hoppiness from start to finish. A little skunky and chocolatey.

Mep3222 (1044) - East Greenbush, New York, USA - JAN 13, 2016
Nice roasted malt aroma and flavor. Dry but a slight sweet finish. Almost a cocoa like dryness. Full flavored but light enough to be an easy drinking porter. Slight smoke feel but that might be more the cocoa dryness? Super balanced and an awesome porter. Such a flavorful body but without a sticky palate and super easy drinking for how much flavor it has. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This is a really awesome beer. Sweet and chocolatey, with a lot of roasted flavor. Mouthfeel is smooth and full. A near-perfect Porter.

Many thanks Will for this treat! Pours an opaque brown with a tan head. The smell is creamy chocolate, roasted malt, mild caramel. The taste is roasted malt, caramel sweetness in the middle ending dry and roasty. full bodied, with elegant carbonation.

Erzengel (6724) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - DEC 19, 2015
Many thanks to ThirstyBird for sharing! The beer starts intense roasted, smooth with sourish porter hints. Lots of chocolate, roasted malt, moderate bitterness. Easy to drink but great fresh and deep. Smooth malty but not too sweetish aftertaste. Nice!
