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.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: NOV 4, 2014 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 an enjoyable brew overall.

The aroma is hops - grass/floral. Pours black with light brown frothy head mostly diminishing with excellent lacing. The taste is bitter. The body is medium light, the texture creamy, the carbonation lively and the finish bitter and long. A very good beer!
