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, we barrel aged this Porter in a Bourbon Barrel (that previously held Buffalo Trace bourbon and Sam Adam’s Utopias) for 7 months. Naturally carbonated and hand bottled. This is one of only 300 bottles... and one of which I dream to have shared with Everett. 8% ALC/VOL 21ºP

Editor’s Note, Released in 2011, waxed 500ML bottle

Tried this side-by-side with the non-barrel aged version and it was no contest. Everett had more depth of flavor, body, complexity, and richness. Not even close. Dark mahogany with a thin khaki head. Nose of bourbon, oak, vanilla and cocoa. Chocolate, bourbon, vanilla and wood in the flavor. Medium mouthfeel and ample carbonation. Good just nothing to write home about.

Dark black pour, deep khaki-brown head, spotty lacing. Nose is roast, caramel, vanilla, oak, bourbon, brown sugar. Flavor is similar with a nice bourbon barrel emphasis on a moderately roasted and semi-sweet porter base. Full bodied, non-cloying, lightly sweet, roasted finish.

Bottle, 22oz, at TFODRBSG 2012. A firm, dense, light tan head forms over a black body. Some curtains left. A bit weak on the nose maybe, but what’s there is lovely. Chocolate, some coffee and roasted malts, and a touch of booze and vanilla. Full-bodied, warming and soft on the carbonation. Lasting, warming finish. A really lovely one, looking gorgeous, smelling and tasting really lovely, and with lots of moreish-ness. If I’m to be a bit negative, I think it’s a bit too much on the warming side. 120818
