Not huge on stouts but this was good. Got better as it warmed.

Bottle shared last night at Umberto's tasting.

Pours a fairly dark brown, almost black, with a one inch head, and good lacing down the glass.

Smells really strongly of sweet bourbon, with a nice big chocolate flavor as well, some vanilla, oak, and coconut, and a bit of roasted malt.

This is pretty thick bodied, with a moderate amount of carbonation, and a creamy, rich mouthfeel.

A really nice effort from Foothills.

September 2014 release.

A: Pitch-black pour. Tall, frothy medium brown head. Head dissipates pretty quickly with decent retention. No sign of lacing.

S: Heavy caramel with a little oak kick. Heavy milk chocolate. Decent bit of umami in there too.

T: Again, heavy caramel up front. Lots of molasses and oak with it, interesting. Bittersweet earthy cocoa in the middle. Light bitter coffee joins in the aftertaste, giving it a sort of mocha flavor that lingers for quite some time. Touch of caramel booziness from the bourbon lingers as well.

M: Fairly heavy, quite smooth. A touch of an alcoholic sting but not much.

O: Well, it sure it chocolatey. Loads of cocoa from start to finish. The sweetness and booziness of the bourbon helps to cut it pretty nicely. Otherwise a fairly simple brew (but I really wasn't expecting anything else).
