Incredibly delicious and not too thick but still very sweet. The color is an awesome caramel. I will definitely drink this again if I find it on tap

Fantastic aroma, color. Brown head hints of intense flavor, with just a hint of chocolate. Not too much!! High alcohol evident in slight whiskey notes. A top beer.

On tap at The Busy Bee in Raleigh. Black pour with a thin brown head. Dark chocolate and espresso aroma. Rich coffee, chocolate, and smoke flavor with a hint of dark fruit. Moderate alcohol warming. Nearly perfectly done. Iíve tried samples of this before but this was my first full glass. Well worth the hype.

Pint @ Sticks & Stones. Pour: Dark, thick pour with beautiful thin cocoa-brown head. Great lacing. Aroma: Chocolate, espresso notes. Taste: Velvety mouth feel. Incredibly smooth from start to finish. High abv is not evident in the fantastic blending of tastes. Overall: Incredibly balanced stout. Blessed that this beast is created just up the highway from where I live. The graphic used for the stout is pretty darn cool, also. When I wear this Foothills shirt in public, it always elicits interesting comments.

Draught. Pours a thick black color with a moderate tan head. Nose has some nice roasting and chocolate elements to it. Taste is super smooth and easy to drink, with the chocolate coming through just enough to make it an excellent way to start your morning.

The climax of this brewery! After tasting, I will always be looking for this brew every February! Very dark almost black in color with obvious chocolate and coffee aromas! Very delicious brew that I highly recommend to everyone!

Draft at Tylerís. Pitch black with a nice tan head and heavy lacing. Intense aroma of chocolate, rich black coffee, and sugar. Excellently balanced flavors...roasted nuts, dark chocolate, nice sweetness, and a little alcohol. Actually thereís surprisingly little alcohol on the flavor and the finish for a beer thatís this strong. It goes down as smooth as many well made stouts with half the strength. Lovely stuff...now if only I could get more of it somehow.

Opaque in color with a finger sized dark brown head that holds itís shape well. Smells of black molassas and chocolate. The flavor is of rich dark chocolate, roasted malts, molassas and licorice. Thick mouthfeel but silky smooth. This is only the second beer that stained the glass after it was empty. The other being Dark Lord. Way to easy to drink as the abv is not noticable. Had on-tap at the release.
