A - Pours damn near black into my oversized DFH signature glass. Aggressively poured resulting in 3 fingers of caramel/mocha cream head. Retention is great, still a dense half finger more than five minutes later. Lacing is fantastic and covers the glass.
S - Smells like delicious minty rocky road ice cream. Lots and lots of delicious sweet chocolate and maybe a hint of vanilla, mint is present after a few good whiffs.
T - Sooo good. Initially lots of chocolate and vanilla sweetness with fresh minty flavors making a noticeable appearance. Then it gets surprisingly very toasty and bitter (which I love). The roasts bitterness lingers all the way through the finish and carries a lasting aftertaste. Hoppy bitterness more so than roasts malts but it seems that a combination of both give the brew its bitter deliciousness.
M - Medium to full bodied, very very smooth. Minimal carbonation, an excellent drinking experience.
O - I was looking forward to this but really had no idea this would be as enjoyable as it is. One of my favorite stouts.

Pours jet black with decent brown lacing, strong mint chocolate aroma. Tastes just like it should, rich chocolate with lots of mint. Mouthfeel was the only thing even slightly lacking in this beer. Alcohol is almost not detectable against the overwhelming notes of mint chocolate. These guys had an idea and they executed. Well done. Ken Schmidt should start a brewery if he hasn't already. If only this beer was more widely available...
