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.

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.

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.
