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).

On tap at Barrels & Bottles. Brown/black with a lingering tan head and light lacing. Aroma of chocolate, sweet malts, earthy hops and caramel. Similar flavor with notes of pine, citrus and dark fruits. Medium body with a nice balance and a smooth finish. Pretty damn good, much better than Hoppy Feet 1.0

Big, black, and hoppy as fuck. This is a thick one and definitely deserves to be drank a bit warmer. Get it!

(Backlog) The look is black, has a tan head and dark. The smell is hoppy, roast, citrus, and pine trees. You can almost chew the hops, a real mix of hops and roast in the taste.

dnstone (2131) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - DEC 10, 2013
Pours an espresso brown-black with a bit of tan head. Nice roasty, stout-like aroma. Roasty stout-lke flavor up front followed by a strong hoppy character and chased with some slight alcohol notes...finish is chocolatey-roasty.

tectactoe (1489) - Michigan, USA - DEC 9, 2013
Tap: deep, dark, woody brown but not quite fully black. Complete with ruby highlights & a quickly fading, khaki colored head. Aroma is robust with notes of roasted malt, cocoa powder, citric, herbal, & ashy hops, light white pepper, & finishing grapefruit. Quite roasty & nearly chocolate-y from the malt. Taste is quite ashy & almost charred with roasted malt & abrasive hop bitterness colliding. Leaves, citrus peel, ash, roast, cocoa, faint fresh coffee beans. Astringent toast in the finish, light char, & some bitter citrus pith. Definitely hides the alcohol well, but the intense bitterness can wear down the palate rather quickly... still a good beer, however.
