COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is a BIG beer. We basically took the Hoppy Feet recipe and multiplied everything by 1.5. This created a wonderfully unique beer that has a deeper malt balance, bolder hop profile, and an extremely fresh aroma. When comparing to regular Hoppy Feet you will notice much sweeter malt notes mixed in with a more pronounced chocolate and dark fruit flavor. The malt flavors are balanced off with strong pine and citrus notes from the addition of A LOT of hops. This beer was actually dry-hopped not once but TWICE with each of the hop varieties (Columbus, Cascade, and Amarillo).

22 oz. bottle at home shared with the wife from notes. Pours a dark cola brown color with a medium sized beige head. The aroma and flavor have a nice combination of roasted malt and dark chocolate with the grapefruit citrus and resiny hops. The flavor adds a slight black coffee and nutty note. Everything was bigger and bolder than the original beer and it still worked. Pretty solid offering.

Bottle shared with koleminer20. Aroma is sweet, roasty, malty, hoppy. Appearance is black, light tan head. Taste is super roasty, malty, bitter, not too many hops in the flavor. Mouthfeel is on the flat side, pretty thin, disappointing. Overall...did not expect it to be mediocre but here we are.

22 oz bomber. The pour is a nice dark black with a off white pillowy white head and some spectacular lace. The aroma is incredibly malty. There is a beautiful roast to the point this is almost like a stout. Great tropical fruits like pineapple blast through. There is a touch of resin on the back end. The flavor is really bitter up front. Almost coffee like. Very bitterly roasty. There aren't a lot of other flavors. The hops are pretty non existent. The pine that was in the nose goes away. The mouth feel is really flat. Thin and slick with no carbonation. I'd hoped for so much more. The aftertaste is quick fading and a little bitter. Very disappointing beer ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

PhilJackson80 (493) - Oklahoma, USA - OCT 25, 2014
22 oz Bomber. Tasted on 10/14/14. Bottle from Total Wine Lewisville, TX. Poured to a deep black color similar to an imperial stout with a dark tan thick head. The nose had a roasty smell with a mild hop nite to it. The beer drank very well for a high ABV. On the finish it was pretty dry & not much sweetness to it. Overall a nice beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

"A little age in this bomber, but not too bad. Good, balanced aroma and flavor varying between orange peel and pine, and molasses, chocolate and coffee. Solid slick feeling body. I’d love to try fresh, but total wine won’t let me."
