Poured from the bottle into a snifter glass.

A real thick and perfect creamy tan head forms, but it is quite large nearly three fingers tall. Whipped up cocoa light texture and settles very slowly. Strangely when forming it seemed even darker. Body color seems classic black walnut and dark but with some little close inspection it appears to have some red in there strangely when held up to light. Nice looker of a stout.

Real nice soft grain aroma. Subtle brown sugar sweetness, dark chocolate, a good mix of bitter and sugar. Hints toward some berried fruit tartness slightly just a tad. Quite solid even a little bit varied.

Palate is a bit different than expected. Bitter. Noticeably. Lots of dry grains and roast char on the finish, but a big blasting pine hop bitterness creeps throughout. A decent palate feel but has some wet skim milk and slick character. There's a bit of coffee like roast towards the finish, but it quickly gets buried in some almost acidic grains. There's quite a bit of sour quality to this, but luckily not too out of control, but it lingers. Roast character is nearly hot and piping, then this acidic coating just takes over, like real acidic coffee, and thick hop oil resin that permeates.

Overall this brings the roast and char, but there's some acidic almost vinegar quality that just overloads and ruins the experience. Would really like some chocolate flavor on this and doesn't really get it done. It's char profile is also identical to its porter and reminds me much of it, which is another beer from Foothills I just don't care for. Just a bit too much bitter, acrid, and oily. Doesn't come off quite right.
