My Bottom Line:
solidfunk (8943) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - MAY 3, 2017
Roasted coffee allusions and toasted cereals meet hop resins in this balanced, smooth Black IPA.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam covers the dark brown.
-This is as drinkable as most Foothills brews.
-The nose may be linear, but this remains balanced and enjoyable throughout.
-The texture is smooth.
On tap at the Foothills brewpub.
Roast and a little caramel. Blacknpour with great head and lacing. Bittersweet finish. A little bark like papyrus. Bottle. b3shine (8870) - Indiana, USA - MAY 29, 2014
Draft to pint. Looks good; a translucent dark cola with foamy beige head. Smells of dark malt, dark chocolate, roast, and citrus hops. Tastes like it smells with a solid mouthfeel. A bit more bitter than I’d prefer, but enjoyable nonetheless. drowland (8676) - Georgia, USA - APR 6, 2017

Good flavor, nice balance, not too bitter, chill roasted malts, chocolate and coffee, citrus and floral aspects, some pine, some dank. Tasty! bytemesis (8375) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - JAN 21, 2015
