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.

Stoned99 (1496) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 6, 2016
UPDATED: MAY 6, 2016 500ml bottle, bottled on 1.3.16. Aroma: strong lactose mixed with coffee and roasted malt. App: pitch black with huge pure moka brown head and big lacing. Taste and palate: full creamy body, smooth, light bitter and smokey finish. Overall: an oatmeal stout really made. Im usually not a fan of lactose beers but this is really well made and not hard to drink at all. Its the other way around. Really really smooth and not to sweet. Really well done.

Dguste en compagnie de Mademoiselle Irina qui rdige en ce moment son plaidoyer de non culpabilit pour une contredanse routire. Le liquide qui emplit ma coupe arborant firement les armoiries de la Brasserie est dun noir rutilant. En coulant dans mon verre, le liquide me parat lger et en roulant, laisse sur les parois de mon verre une pr-mousse la lente ascension vers une ligne dquilibre nette comme lhorizon. Mon verre reste dcor et tachet comme un lopard dune dentelle des plus serres et artistiques. Nez dlicat et lger de caf, de malts rtis accompagns de la Signature de la Maison qui matrise les houblons la perfection. Trs complexe pour un stout ni imprial ni barriqu. Ds la premire gorge, je suis saisi par la douceur de ce liquide la torrfaction remarquable. Un liquide presque lact me coule en bouche dans un lan de dlicatesse ponctu par une fine bulle des plus lgantes. Un somptueux caf froid ml dun chocolat amer, dun houblon estival et lger. Cette bire est larchtype de llgance.
