look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4
Poured into a stella egg glass
A: very dark burnt brown minimal tan head
S: Smells like an RIS at first with roasty malt tastes and some booze, then you can most defiantly smell the mint or menthol smell
T: Very unique at first its very minty then finishes with roast and chocoalte, the mint doesn't overly stay on the palate, kinda strange though a little hard to get used to but unique non the less. Starts pretyy drinkable warms up a bit after a few sips
M: Really interesting. Crisp but then a hoppy bite on the tongue, the mint playing a huge role as well.
Overall I think this beer is a good unique beer, it is unlike anything ive ever tried. I think they executed it pretty well judging on the fact that it is a very specific taste to nail without overdoing it. at over 9%abv I'd say a good buy.

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.
