COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Earl (1911-1985) 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, 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 18º P Ingredients: Pale, Caramel, and Chocolate Malt, Roasted Barley, Columbus hops; Ale Yeast, and our Well Water.

This is a really great coffee stout, serenely smooth, coffee-forward yet never one-note, just great stuff overall, reminding that Shaun is a master of many arts.

Robust black pour with one finger of espresso brown head. Pretty. I get blackstrap molasses and burnt sugar in the aroma. Rich coffee and dark fruit skins. Bitter black coffee in the flavor. Full bodied and coating on the palate. Black cherry skins and currant on the finish.

Bottle to chalice. Oily jet black with a short lived brown head. Nose is slight char, little vanilla, hint of coffee. Palate is delicately balanced coffee, caramel, maybe a little marshmallow sugary sweetness. Mouth feel is an interesting experience starting smooth and creamy, penetrated by a fine carb, finishing warm and pleasantly boozy. Sticky lips. Wow, now I understand what a stout should be.

[2/5/17] Bottle at Amit’s place in Poughkeepsie. Thanks Amit. Black with a big tan head. Aroma of coffee, roast. Sweetish-bitterish flavor, light sourish roasty note. Rounded mouthfeel. Very nice.

Bouteille datée du 08/12/2016, bue après un peu plus de deux mois. Robe noire bien opaque surmontée d’un généreux col de mousse beige foncée et onctueux qui s’effondre tranquillement en laissant une forte dentelle. Arômes de malt torréfié et café noisette principalement, cacao en poudre, bois sec, amande râpée et biscuit à l’avoine. En bouche, mélange de café frais moulu et de malt grillé à point suivi de près par un chocolat noir lisse et onctueux qui colle longuement au palais. Également, saveurs de bois, noisettes grillées, avoine alourdie par l’eau, légère amertume herbacée. Bel équilibre des saveurs. L’ajout de café rehausse le tout en amenant ce stout à l’avoine près d’un porter robuste. Texture assez douce et onctueuse, corps moyen à rond. Très bien.
