Had this one on-tap at the brewpub. Light ruby edges make this one just less-than-black. A nice small cap of foam on top leaves perfect sip rings on the glass edge. Excellent nose bursting with notes of pine scent, citrus, fresh crushed hop pellets. Great inviting hoppy scent! Good body. Not too thick, easy to drink. Moderate carbonation. Well-balanced. Juicy, flavorful hops make up the bulk of this one. Nice bitter pop to it, but great citrusy flavor. Some mild cocoa-like sweetness noted, a little dry character on the finish. A good dark bitter beer. I like this one better than their standard IPA I think. Nice work retooling this one, Foothills.

Pours cola brown with lasting just off white head and lace. Aroma is roasted malts with a pine hop that reminds me of creosote. Taste is of roasted malts, a bit of coffee and chocolate but the finish is a bright pine hop. Interesting.

Solid but unremarkable black IPA. Malty and toasty with mild piney notes. Drinkable, fine.

Meh. Its fine. Aroma is some faint hops and not as much toasty malt goodness as youd expect. Taste is much lighter than I thought with a strong bitter finish. The sting of the hops is there but the dark malt seems to be more color than flavor. Its fine just not that memorable.

12 oz bottle courtesy of a friend, thanks Mike! Black with beige head. Aromas of light roasty notes, light floral and pine. Tastes of roasty notes, floral, bitter chocolate. Medium body with a dry finish.

Bottle. Been in the fridge for about two months. Very dark with oatmeal head. Getting an unfortunate amount of perfume on the nose. Flavor is perfumey, too. Dang, another unfresh one. Stupid bottle shops.

DiarmaidBHK (4431) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 26, 2016
Bottle. Pours black with a thin khaki head. Lots of roasted malt notes on the tongue. It tastes kind of like tar which is both interesting and extremely off-putting. Its not my favorite style to be honest so this feels kind of like a best-case scenario for it.

obguthr (5942) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - JAN 24, 2016
Tar, pine, and soil nose, the former is dominant. Cola black, medium tan head, good lacing. Tobacco, pine, tar. Medium body, easy carbonation. Undoubtedly an IDA, but I like a sharper hop bite.

Cybercat (5343) - Georgia, USA - JAN 9, 2016
Taps rich coffee sable with a thick and fine-bubbled tan head. Woody hops and hay dominate the aroma, but gladly share the olfactory stage with roast malt and a whisper of wheat. Flavor delivers woody hops, roast malt, coffee, molasses, and subtle earthy and wheaty tones. Firm body has good strong fizz and leaves a hoppy and roasty/charred finish. Get bitten!
