Thanks to the Atlanta crew for sharing this one. Pours dark brown with a tan head. Nose is some roast, slight malt, some yeast, and slight dark fruit. Flavor is similar with a nice portery finish. Interesting beer.

22oz. Bottle: Aroma of malt, chocolate, hops, smoke, and light roasting. Poured very dark brown/almost black in color with a large, creamy, dense, brown head that diminished but lasted throughout. Clear. Not sparkling. Very good lacing. Flavor is lightly sweet and lightly bitter. Tastes of roasted malt, chocolate, slight smoke, slight hops, and a hint of tar. Medium body. Dry texture. Average carbonation. Roasted malt, chocolate, slight smoke, and slight hop finish is dry. 9%ABV is completely hidden throughout.

hopscotch (9553) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 3, 2010
Bottle… Clear, very dark lager with a mid-sized, creamy, khaki head. Good retention. The bouquet offers big-time chocolate and lesser notes of tobacco and cola. Full-bodied and creamy with kicked-back carbonation. The hearty flavor is sweet and chocolaty. Finishes bittersweet (more bitter than sweet). Bottle courtesy of OrlGamecock!

kbutler1 (1356) - Minnesota, USA - SEP 27, 2010
Bottle. Pours a dark brown/black color with a slight tan head that collars around the inside rim of the glass. Strong cocoa aroma mixed with some malt type sweetnes. The taste is not at all what I expected and to be honest, not very good, lots of leather, tobacco, and an overly charred roast cocoa flavor that really kills this beer. Ends fairly dry with a lingering bitterness. Overall, not a good beer and am surprised as I enjoy most other Foothills beers.

sample from the pitcher @ GABF on 9/18/10. black pour with a thin tan head. big roasted nose with layers of chocolate and coffee. sweet coffee mouth with a thin to medium body. the flavors punch through and finish with more coffee and chocolate.

cpetrone84 (1537) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 25, 2010
"A-pours a jet black liquid with a creamy light brown colored head. S-hints of chocolate with lots of burnt ashy aromas, notes of burnt coffee, light plum malty sweetness in the back. T-the taste has hints of chocolate with more of the ashy burnt aromas, malty sweetness with a light hop presence bringing some floral flavors and a hint of bitterness. M-extremely smooth and creamy, medium body, actually slightly thin in the back with a light carbonation and bitter finish. D-this is ok, taste is better than the nose, the flavors have a much less burnt components and ash than the nose. plain but not bad."

Guyute_Pig (102) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - SEP 20, 2010
UPDATED: OCT 4, 2011 Bottle courtesy of OrlGamecock, thanks. Nice dark black pour with a decent tan head. Rich and fullbodied, very robust, chocolate and roasty. Nicely balanced brew, enjoyed it and will have to find again.

PhillyBeer2112 (2546) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - SEP 17, 2010
Nice beer, really big on the chocolate which was all over the nose, and also in the flavor but there complemented with a light roastiness. Malts are smooth and rounded, not too sweet, with actually a semi-dry chocolate finish.

Sweet chocolate and coffee on the nose. Pours black with a thin tan head. Bitter chocolate with molasses and roasted malts, bitter coffee as well. Nice!
