Shared with ebone1988 and Gus at Gus Birthday V1 and The Topaz Turns 100k Spaghettogether. For this fucking book. 22 oz bottle, 2014 vintage. The pour is a decent black with a thicker light khaki ring and a light hit of head. The aroma isnt good. Bitter roasted malt and hoos are what greet you. There is a light alcohol and a touch of chocolate. Its bitter and not chocolatey. The flavor is just not that good. There is a light roasted malt, a hint of molasses and humongous bitter hops. The bitterness throughout his beer is such a turn off. The chocolate is nonexistent. The bitter finish makes me slightly upset. The mouth feel is thin and watery with a brighter carbonation and a lingeringly bitter roasted malt on the finish. No thanks. Thanks for blowing it, Foothills.

Special release 2014. Une robe incroyable avec cette mousse paisse qui ne veut pas mourir. Une dentelle pour couronner le tout. Un nez de caf pic, de chocolat amer et mi-amer. Une avance de fruits noirs derrire tout a et un caramel trs fonc en sourdine. Une bouche comme une liqueur chocolate et secoue par une torrfaction lgrement poivre. Un corps moyen-fort avec des bulles actives et une texture huileuse. Une finale riche avec un alcool compltement enrob et une sensation rtie et chocolate. Trs bon.

Stoned99 (1427) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 24, 2016
22 ounces February 2014 bottle shared with SlovakSniper, thanks for the share. Aroma: strong chocolate, coffee beans, spices, tobacco, cinnamon, oxydation. Taste and palate: full body, lots of chocolate, moderate sweetness, light smokiness and subtle acidity in the finish. Overall: good but wonder how it was more fresh. We can see that time aged this one and probably not in a good way. Not too much but we can definitely see that its oxidized. Wish I could have tasted it more fresh. Still really good. A beer for smoked/tobacco/chocolate beer fans.

RRistow12 (755) - Lewis Center, Ohio, USA - JUN 26, 2016
Tasted from bottle. Pours black with thick tan head. Aroma is chocolate, coffee and some pepper, little bit of toffee. Taste is very well balanced. With moderate bitterness balanced by caramel and toffee malt backbone. Not that bitter bite in the after taste. Nice chocolate and coffee flavor. Well done. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tap. The look is the expected darkness, black in color, tan head. The smell is malt, roast, slight harsh and staleness, dark fruit, chocolate. The taste is mostly the same. Maybe the expectation but I expected more. Seemed toned down.
