COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Earl (1911-1985) was our grandfathers brother; Hill Farmstead Brewery rests upon the land that was once home to him and his 13 siblings. In his honor, this Stout is crafted from American malted barley, Flaked Oats, English roasted malts, American hops, Organic Guatemalan Coffee, our ale yeast, and water from our well. It is unfiltered and naturally carbonated. A silhouette of coffee and malt - an embodiment of complexity and drinkability, this is the ale that I dream to have shared with Earl. 7.2% ALC/VOL 18 P Ingredients: Pale, Caramel, and Chocolate Malt, Roasted Barley, Columbus hops; Ale Yeast, and our Well Water.

bottle shared by a friend. latest batch. poured a deep dark black colour with a nice big mocha coloured head. while pouring the nose is hit with a big deep roasted coffee aroma. subtle roasted malt notes, sweet oatmeal, sweet bakers chocolate. taste of strong coffee, mocha, roast, and sweet charred chocolate, leading to a balanced hop coffee bitterness. the oats gives this beer a bit more smoother mouthfeel. maybe just a little bit light bodied.

laiti (8231) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 2, 2016
50 cl bottle @ home. Bottled 13.02.2016
Aroma has ash, coffee and some licorice. Flavour has pot coffee, lots of ash, some grapefruity hops and gooseberry bush. I like the licorice and ashy tones here. Oh, and also the coffee tones are nice. But alas, this is too hoppy to be completely enjoyable. Also CO2 level is a bit too high.
