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).

Pours dark brown with a tan head. Smells of pine, resin, earthy, roasty, some coffee. Tastes of resin, roasted malt, sage, some molasses with a bitter finish.

Pours black into a snifter. Mocha conglomerate head with excellent retention recedes leaving sheet lacing. Dark chocolate, pine and resin aromas. Sweet chocolate syrup upfront turning to a deep pine resin middle before returning to chocolate covered pit fruit before a lasting grapefruit finish. Quite a long going on...and very good.

auerbrau (3177) - Peace Dale, Rhode Island, USA - JAN 16, 2011
On tap at Deep Ellum - Allston, MA. Big dank pot, pineapple, and candied orange aroma, edging bristly and pine-like. This amped up version really works with the good parts of Black IPA and gives you a Carafa III kick laid underneath the C-hop fun. Juicy, sweetness balanced with booze, and a drying hop finish. A well-executed Imperial version of the base.

Excellent lacing. Flavor is medium to heavily bitter and light to medium sweet. Tastes of malt, hops, caramel, pine, light coffee, slight chocolate, resin, molasses, slight citrus, and a hint of roasting. Medium body. Tingly, then dry texture. Average carbonation. Dark malt, molasses, hop, pine, slight coffee, slight chocolate, light caramel, and resin finish is dry. 10%ABV is completely hidden throughout.
