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.

12oz bottle into a mini snifter.

pours a dark black with a slight head. smell is huge huge on mint chocolate...perfect! just as you'd expect. the taste is a big mouthful of mint chocolate at first but it ends very bitterly. drinkabilty is moderate...medium bodied with mild to low carbonation.

overall good niche beer. try it!
