3.58/5 rDev -7%
Pours an opaque deep brown with a frothy tan head that slowly dissipates, leaving modest lacing.
Dark chocolate dominates, with toasted, nutty and toasted malt weighing in. There's a hint of coffee.
Roast malt dominates the flavor profile, finishing a bit acrid and fairly bitter. Chocolate lingers throughout, but the bitterness overwhelms.
Body is moderate, with fairly high carbonation and a carbonic bite.
This one is too bitter and harsh for me.

The People's Porter, a beer for the people. This beer is exactly what its name implies, a nice, solid, hard working beer. It tastes of the black morning coffee of a salaryman, the bread of a factory worker's lunch, and even a few notes of a caramel or vanilla like the manager might sneak at the end of the day. All in all the proletariat (as well as Foothills) should be proud to call this their beer. It's one of the more drinkable porters I have found due to its pleasant balance of flavors and (relatively speaking for a porter) low gravity. It is especially good for finishing off a six pack by yourself while watching football, avoiding your extended family, and waiting for day-before-Thanksgiving dinner to be made.

3.94/5 rDev +2.3%
Appearance: Pours with a coffee brown color capped by a three-fingered ecru head; squiggles of lacing line the glass
Smell: Toasted brown bread and chocolate with hints of vanilla and coffee
Taste: Toast and chocolate, up front, with the coffee and vanilla tones building in the middle; fades a bit in the finish though the chocolate tones linger
Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation
Overall: This bottle has been in my cellar for a while so the hops have faded but that is just fine with me as I find Foothills dark beers tend to be a bit hoppy for my palate; I like the way this has aged just fine
