Dan269605 (209) - Rocky Hill, Connecticut, USA - MAR 1, 2014
UPDATED: MAR 2, 2014 Dark brown with a finger and a half of tan head. Aromas of roasted malts, dark chocolate, coffee, slight hop brightness. Taste follows in suit. It’s a little thin, but very good for the style, bot timid on the flavor. A good easier drinking dark beer (porter).

ARH (152) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 2, 2014
12 oz bottle poured into a tulip glass. A fairly unique aroma combination that starts with a notable earthy/mushroom and coffee mix. After a while, I started to pick up some raisins followed by some basement-dampness. As this warms and mellows, some light alcohol notes start to poke through with a medium strength cola-caramel smell. The dark brown body is topped by a thin, light-colored espresso head that leaves a trace amount of lacing. The taste is primarily coffee bitter at a medium level with a medium/medium-light sweetness. The tongue starts out with the cola-caramel flavors and some dark fruits (plums and raisins). The medium body has an average carbonation which is oily with a bit of a grainy feel to it. A toasted, borderline burnt toast, flavor finishes the drink and leaves a strong coffee and cola aftertaste that lingers.

Really great porter, probably the best widely-available porter made in New England. Until I can get my hands on another Hill Farmstead Everett this is where Ill be going for american porter.
