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.

A: Very dark brown body with thick khaki head. Nice lacing.
S: Minty, dark chocolate & roast malt aromas.
T: Bittersweet dark chocolate, mint flavors remind me of a hotel pillow mint.
M: Thick smooth chewy body with lightly bitter back end.

12oz bottle poured into Huna snifter.
Jet black, opaque elixir, 3mm mocha head, resets as a thin rim. Wisps of lacing.
Nice combo of mint, baker's chocolate, malt biscuit. Mint really comes out as the brew warms.
The taste follows the nose and reminds me of a nice mint brownie with a nice dairy/milk chaser.
Full bodied, nicely thick and chewy.
Well done, nice after dinner brew.
