Not a fan of the herbal bitterness but the chocolate and caramel dark brew is awesome.

Nearly opaque, black in color with a lasting khaki colored head. Georgous, thick, sheets of lacing line the glass.
Heavy on the roasted and coffee aromas.
Delicious roasted malt flavors with some cocoa in the back ground. Hops shine in the finish and linger in the aftertaste. Perfectly balanced beer. With that said the perfect tasting porter as I can't imagine a porter tasting any better.
Silky smooth mouthfeel. Hops in the finish add just enough bite to make the mouthfeel interesting.
Way too drinkable. I was at a bar with 40+ taps and could spend the whole night drinking just this. Excellent porter, excellent beer. Go to your local tap room and order a pint. Go to the brewery and get you a growler. Or, trade for a growler.

Great beer. A little light on the mouth feel. Well worth it when you want a good porter! Foothills has yet to give me a bad beer!

Dark roasted taste with delicious coffee and chocolate accents. If I can find this consistently, it could easily become a favorite.
