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).

66 cl bottle @ home. Pours black with a decent mocha head that leaves some lacing. Aroma is piney and resinous hops as well as some malt. Taste is bitter and a little dry with plenty of hops (pine and resin) and some malt as well as some warming alcohol.

sebletitje (6895) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JUN 29, 2012
66cl bomber, 10%, @ Delirium Hoppy Loft, Brussels. Brune foncée, col léger beige. Arôme est malté grillé avec une bouffée de houblon arrivant juste derrière alternant pin et fruité avec un malt caramel agréable. Palais malté sur note de chocolat, caramel avec une note épaisse, léger huileux avec une pointe fine de torréfié. Houblon reste plus en retrait donnant un profile houblonné amer léger, citronné avec un bon coup de forêt de sapins. Alcool malgré les 10% reste bien dissimulée.

dagimp (741) - Philly, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 29, 2012
Poured from a bomber into a plastic cup (don't judge me!). Date on bottle is 2/12 so it isnt the freshest but it shouldnt be past its prime either Pours a beautiful clear black if that's at all possible. Nice hearty brownish head and lacing. I can tell this is a substantial beer. Mouthfeel is actually lighter than I'd expect for a 10%abv but it's waaaaaaay to carbonated. Nice biting dry feel to it though. Aroma is dark malty with a splash of alcohol. Taste is dry with plenty of porter like taste. A good dose of piney hops are present too. Tons of chalk too. Overall I really liked this beer. Plenty of character to go around. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

thanks to my brother for sending me this 1 have been wanting to try some thing from this brewery Bottle. Pours a rich black color with a tan head. Aroma was roasty and earthy with chocolate a touch of coffee and a hint of pine. Flavor is more malty than hoppy with roasted malts, dark chocolate, molasses, earth and subtle pine with a dry finish

mile (3123) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 25, 2012
Bottle (10%). Very dark brown - black, small to average and fully diminishing light brown head. Moderate to full, malty and lightly sweetish aroma, some tropical fruitiness and roasted malt, lots of piney - some citrus hoppyness. Body is medium to full, malty and dryish flavor, light fruitiness, roasted malt, light chocolate, lots of piney - some citrus hoppyness. Finish is average to long, malty and dry roasted malt, huge amounts of piney hoppyness, light alcohol. Really well hopped dry and roasted (black)IPA - no coffee/no caramel, only light alcohol (considering 10%) in the finish. I usually don’t enjoy IPAs over 8% - this one is exception.

Bottle. Black with a beige foam. Aromas are woody with burnt toast and soapy pine. Spritzy yeast with lemon and some floral notes. Coffee with dark chocolate and marzipan alcohol. Flavours are sweet cola with herbal notes and bittersweet grapefruit. Warming alcohol with good spiciness. Dark chocolate with some earthiness. Pine and lemon with a peppery finish. Very good.

MrBunn (2507) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 21, 2012
Bomber. Pours dark brown with a thin head. Aromas of chocolate, resin, and citrus-scented dish soap. Flavor is mostly resin and chocolate with a pretty boozy heat to it. It’s a little silky on the palate, which forms an odd combination with the boozy and resiny qualities.

BBB63 (6154) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - JUN 20, 2012
Bottle and served in my other NB Worthy glass: pours a very deep brown nearly opaque with a fading rocky head and very good lace. The aroma has characteristics of roast, toast, char, bittersweet chocolate, dank and piney hops (hello Columbus), and some medicinal and earthy vapours. The taste is resiny, catty, citric, roasty, burnt, and full of band-aid. If it wasn’t for the overwhelming medicinal qualities I could really dig this flavor profile. The mouth feel is brash yet chalky and ashy. A solid enough brew but seemed to be missing something.

sonnycheeba (3745) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JUN 16, 2012
Bottle. Pours opaque black with average, creamy beige head; short retention and minimal lacing. Aroma is earthy and dank hops, figs, dates, caramel malt, faint vanilla, and light pine. Flavor is hops forward (medium bitterness) with good supporting sweet malt and dark fruit esters; dry, hoppy finish. Medium body, carbonation, and warmth.

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 15, 2012
In bottle, thanks Ben. Pours a very dark brown colour with a fair light tan head. A massive hoppy aroma of pine, pineapple, guava and grapefruit before dark chocolate, coffee and alcohol. Similar flavours with moderate carbonation, light CO2 prickle and an oily mouth-feel. Alcohol is very well balanced. Lovely and nicely bitter.
