Thanks to naiguy323 for opening a bottle of this tonight.

Appearance: Black as can be body with a medium brown toffee coloured head. Head is a bit bubbly, top covering and looks steady.

Smell: A very intense nose of bourbon, licorice, mollasses, chocolate, nuts, and coffee. A bit of dark fruit and vanilla blend in as well. Very strong.

Taste: Has a strong bourbon note to it. Still boozy. Will be interesting to see what some time does to it. Very sweet, has notes of vanilla and molasses. Dark fruits lingering around.

Mouthfeel: Medium feel for a stout - flavours linger very well. Carbonation is a very good level.

Drinkability: Drank about 8 oz with no problem. For a big stout this is drinkable, but definitely one to split with friends.

This beer is a cool concept, and I'm a big fan of Foothills. Looking forward to putting a few bottles away for a couple years and seeing how this mellows. Well done.

Bottle shared by bmanning and another by Lunch. Thanks Ben & Paul!

A: This collaborative effort appears a rich, dark brown, nearing black. There is about an eighth inch of beige head that leaves random traces of lacing about the glass.

S: The aroma is bold, with scents of bourbon and roasted malt. No surprises here.

T: The flavor is the best aspect of the beer, as it should be. Olde Hickory, Duck-Rabbit, and Foothills play well together. Everything comes together nicely, with roasted malt and bourbon flavors bold, yet balanced. The barrel presence is very strong and forward throughout. Complex and tasty.

M: The feel is medium bodied, with a slight sweetness and alcohol presence throughout.

D: I would definitely have this again. Tasty stuff.
