COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Everett (1908-1939) 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 Porter is crafted from American malted barley, English and German roasted malts, American hops, our ale yeast, and water from our well. It is unfiltered and naturally carbonated. Decadent in its depth, with a complex backbone of chocolate, coffee, and malty sweetness, this is the ale that I dream to have shared with Everett. 7.5% ALC/VOL 21 P Ingredients: Pale, Caramel, and Chocolate Malt, Roasted Barley, Columbus hops; Ale Yeast, and our Well Water.

Verecund (82) - North Carolina, USA - MAY 8, 2011
Opened on May 4, 2011. I have previously had the barrel-aged version, which was really nice, so I was looking forward to this. Thanks to RSchaeffer for the extra!

Pours black with two full fingers of thick tan head. Shaun knows his aesthetics. Ridiculous lacing. The only complaint is that the second pour yields almost too much head (four full fingers).

Smoky roast coffee, tons of milk chocolate, dark fruit and a nice milky creaminess. Toffee sweetness alongside a really pleasant spiciness. The sweeter and milky parts remind me of Velvet Merkin, but this features much more spicy balancing complexity and "robust," smoky elements.

Both milk and [xx%] cocoa dark chocolate, espresso roast coffee beans, peppercorn, and an ashy smokiness. The spicy oak found in the -bal version is here too. How? - I have no idea. More or less maps onto the nose.

At first, this has too much carbonation - medium-bodied, with full, expanding-in-the-mouth carbonation. Thirty minutes later, the creaminess characteristic of HFS comes through, and the body feels appropriately fuller.

Different, but pleasantly so. Its almost exactly what I expected - spicy, somewhat smoky, rich, quietly oaky, with coffee and chocolate. A winner.

Black color, medium brownish head. Aroma of roasted malt and dark bread, light wet cardboard, pungent. One of the smoothest beers, relatively dry; roasted malt, dark chocolate, cardboard, touch of liquorice.
Excellent.

aleigator (880) - GERMANY - OCT 24, 2016
Pours pitch black with a fluffy, bubbly, mocha colored head. Smells of melted chocolate, toasted walnuts, rock sugar and unsweetened marzipan. The nose comes very well together, balanced by a mellow earth note, including a whiff of dough and flowers, adding to the prominent chocolate. Has an utmost soft mouthfeel, creamy with a medium, malt relying body, featuring a lively carbonation burst, tickling the tongue during the finish. Tastes of milk chocolate, bitter cocoa nibs, which add to the complexity of the silk chocolate, and toasted hazelnuts. Turns a tad dryer during the mid palate with even more cocoa nibs, a whiff of licorice and lots of soothing cream. Finishes with rock sugar, fudge and bitter chocolate, clean and soft. Very well built Porter, pleasantly complex without loosing its focus at any point. Intense during the mid palate, while finishing surprisingly soft and calm.

MarcoDL (4404) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 12, 2016
At Hopishop 2016. Aroma of coffee, roasted malt and some choco. Taste has coffee, caramel, licorice and malt. Not bad, but very middle of the road.

Alengrin (4830) - BELGIUM - OCT 11, 2016
At Hopishop. The best porter in the world according to this site - for what its worth. Lightly lacing, tan, moussy head quickly dissipating in the middle; very dark mahogany brown colour, blackish but still fully translucent. Aroma of beef stock cube and even gravy, walnut, home made caramel, dry liquorish candy, dried porcini, bitter chocolate, vague glue-like solvent effect but nothing disturbing. Sweet onset, hints of candied figs and dates, sourish undercurrent, beef stock-like umami accent from the nose returning immediately after the sweetness, softish carbo perfectly fit for the style, smooth oily mouthfeel, caramelly malt core with bitter chocolatey and mildly toasted ending, pleasant spicy hop notes blending in very well, lingering with the toasted malt bitterness, a tad grapefruity in the end, with a mild suggestion of warming alcohol. Very accomplished, rounded, easily drinkable porter, perhaps a bit too much tilted to the umami side for this style but I can see how this quality level in combination with limited production and even more limited distribution can create a hype.
