12oz bottle poured into Delirium tremens snifter. Thanks a ton Russell!

A: Pours black with a finger dark tan head that faded into a fuzzy collar and wispy film. Sheets of tight bubbled lace were left down the glass after each sip.
S: Dark roasted malts dominate but the next scent I get reminds me of peppermint patties. Light hints of sweet caramel and warming booze poke through as well.
T: Mint is leafy and green and almost has a burn to it similar to mouthwash. The base is full of dark chocolate, roast, caramel and faint coffee. I get notes of bitter dark chocolate and leafy hops in the finish.
M: Full body, slick and greasy mouthfeel with fairly smooth carbonation. Bitter finish, slight booze.
O: Decent but not as good as I was picturing from the description. The mint mixed with alcohol is slightly harsh and the bitter chocolate and hops of the base stout doesn’t help. Body could have been thicker too. I think a rich mint chocolate milk stout would be a better use of mint. Thanks again Rusel_G for hitting a want as an extra.

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a Bruery tulip. Bottled 10/1/12? About a 1 yr old now. Bought at Korkers Liquor in Newport Beach CA for $2.99.

A - Pitch black, very rich looking. Mocha colored head leaves good lacing.

S - Mint, a little milk chocolate. But overwhelmingly, mint. The mint is very vibrant and fresh.

T - Mint up front, but goes into a nice milk chocolate, silky flavor. A little dried cherry and roast on the finish.

M - Very rich and silky. Carbonation is soft and silky.

O - Very minty, but not as harsh as fresh. This one mellowed out nicely. The mint, chocolate, and dried cherries blend nicely.
