Thanks to jtd1969 for sharing this one
A - oil thick, pitch black with a big, brown head that has good retention
S - mint leaves, chocolate, roasted malts
T - huge chocolate, mint leaves, roasted malts, mild bitter finish
M - full bodied, well carbonated, warming alcohol
This beer was awesome! The chocolate was incredible, indulgent, impressive, and rich. The mint was heavy on the nose, but added a nice compliment to the chocolate in the flavor. This has tremendous drinkability for the ABV. If you like a chocolate stout or if you like a little something different, this is most certainly a beer that is worth trying. I am very impressed!

3.9/5 rDev -4.2%

355ml bottle poured into tulip 26/4/13 cheers Rutager for sending me the bottle
A black liquid with an inch of cola edge, big loose mocha foam quickly ends up as a thick film that leaves lots of random lace
S peppermint girl guide cookies with some chocolate chip mint iced cream with just a little licorice and booze, not sure why but I'm loving it
T a little coffee and char from the dark roast but somehow takes away from what the nose was offering, what I could smells still there but the proportions are mixed up and I like the taste but the nose was great
M not as thick as the color would imply but far from water, bubbles almost cream it up and there's just a little heat, strange finish of minty char, reminds me of a chocolate mint Prime Time cigarillo with some coffee
O I could see this one getting a pretty wide range of ratings, interesting to say the least and if every aspect was as sexy as the nose this would be a world class beer
One of those beers where one sip its awesome and the next not so much, smells great and although its not lacking in any department there's room for improvement, strange but successful
