look: 4 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a snifter glass.
A: Thick and dark with minimal head.
S: Strong Coffee and Chocolate smell with a slight mint smell.
T: At first the taste reminds me an Old Rasputin that's smoother, and thicker. The chocolate really comes out after the first hit on the tongue and the finish is where the mint chocolate comes in. Wasn't just a strictly mint finish as I have expected, it really had a mint chocolate taste.
M: Thick and full bodied. Very smooth with minimal carbonation.
O: They hit it out of the park. Best Collab stone has done that I've tasted and that's saying something. Fantastic Imperial Stout that's unique and stands out. My only wish is that it continues so I don't have to search and horde bottles I find.

Motor oil pour,soapy 3 finger head upon aggressive pour, head hung on for a good spell and left some spotty lacing, but a very nice looing Imperial Stout.
Aroma is roasty and chocolaty , no real menthol from the mint detected.
Velvety minty chocolate flavors. The dividing factor on the reviews I read are that the mint did not have enough presence, and I disagree: the mint is well centered in the mix, starting on the first sip with a slight cooling element from the mint that diminished into a nifty blending of the flavors.
Creamy mouthfeel, coats the palate well, 12 oz. is a perfect size to enjoy solo.
Delicious Stout that delivers what the label advertises: like drinking a rich stout brewed with Junior Mints. I really enjoyed this one and recommend it.
