Expecting a down rating..
On tap, from an hour's worth of memory:
Little light in body, but a decent bourbon barrel influence.

My expectations were low, impressions were above expectations, but needed some body to boost the rating.

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. Aroma- Has a very nice aroma of roasted malt, coffee and chocolate. Appearance- Pours a dark brown with reddish highlights. Has a big beige head. Taste- The roasted malt comes shining through along with a hint of coffee and chocolate. Palate- A medium bodied beer with moderate carbonation. Overall- A very solid beer, Foothills Brewery has a very nice product in this one.
