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.

"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."

Tap at the Sessions. Pours pitch black with a small tanned head leaving some laces. Aroma is slightlybroadted, malty, sweetish, fruity, bready and some chocolate. Flavor is a bit watery, acidy slightly roasted and sweet in front, bitterness yet not too heavy with slight soapy and grassy touch. Finishes bitter dry.

Taste thanks to Chris!
dark black, puffy cream head with light lacing. Straightforward chocolate, lightly dirty roast, grainy Graham cracker in the back. Heavy fudgy flavor, lightly bitter roast through the finish. Mouth is coating, a bit dark chocolate bitter, not green enough. A bit of dark fruit in the finish.

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.
