On draught at WBF in Durham, NC. Thanks Jamie! Pours dark as midnight witha nice sized tan head. Roasty nose with a little but of chocolate and coffee--very pleasent. Full flavored with many of the same characteristics as the nose--chocolate, coffee, etc. I was really impressed with the stout. Jamie brews amazing beer. If you’re ever driving through Winston Salem on I-40, you would do yourself a disservice not stopping at Foothills.

On tap at Barley’s Asheville. Black in color, not much head. Hearty helping of roast, a little bit of alcohol on the aroma. Medium-bodied. Nice even intro of malt and bitter roast and cocoa with a pleasant and full roasted finish. Very sessionable and robust at the same time.

Pours pitch black, with a thick, foamy light brown head. Pretty big, up in your face roast aroma. Some hop presence in there as well to balance it out some which was nice. Dark malts and mild chocolate were noticeable too. The flavor was big on the roast as well, with some chocolate, cream, and nutty characters. Nice full bodied stout, alot of flavor. Another solid offering from these guys. They are getting more and more respect from me.
