On tap at Foothills. Pours dark chocolate brown. Aroma is robust of coffee grounds and simcoe. Flavor has loads of coffee grounds backed by plenty of earthy hops. Dirt, pine, and wet coffee grounds balanced with caramelized sugar and cola. Thin body with a fizzy palate. Earthy coffee notes linger. This works really well. Come on, Foothills: when you experiment it can work. Do more tweaks like this!
