22 oz bottle poured an opaque, black body.
Feel: full, creamy smpoth body; light carbonation.

FLAVOR: Average intensity for style. Ample dark roasted malts with minimal smokiness and moderate. Some light burnt toast in the aftertaste. Lightly bitter. Good balance.

They recently began bottling this again. I don't know if it is a limited thing they are doing or if they plan to offer it more often. I think this used to be called Total Eclipse, but this bottle simply says "Stout".

Appearance: Black as night, no light, decent amount of light khaki head which lingers through the consuming of this one.

Aroma: Dark roast malts, some chocolate notes, some have said bakers chocolate. Its just plain dark chocolate to me. Pretty much what you would expect from this type of stout.

Taste: Roasty and robust, but it is chocolate dominant and not too sweet but sweet enough. Its on the thin side but then again it is not an imperial stout. Finish is somewhat clean and not at all cloying. Pleasant for what it is.

Overall: This is a good stout, its nice to have some nicer options available from Foothills, but to be honest this is not much better if any than Green Mans Forester and it comes in six packs for $10-12, whereas this is $6-8 for a bomber depending on where you bought it. Which is the downside to Foothills, they need to make these offerings available in six packs rather than bombers and ONLY put the special stuff in the 650 ml bottles!

Poured on-tap at the brewery, the beer is a dark, brown to black coloring with a foamy, low profile, light tan head. Aromas of subtle roast, bittersweet chocolate, hints of molasses, bittersweet chocolate, and char. Flavors are roasted forward, with a bittersweet blend of roasted coffee, nutty sweetness, baker's chocolate, and hints of smoke. Dry, smooth bodied, with a roasted coffee and smoky aftertaste. Dry, smooth finish. Nice beer.

A very unique caramel finish comes out of nowhere
