look: 4.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

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.

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.
