3.8/5  rDev -1.8%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A - Close to three fingers worth of rich creamy dark khaki colored froth... Solid retention gives way to to a full moderately thick veil of lacing... Both the head and lacing are equally inviting... Mostly still with just a couple of stray carbonation bubbles towards the very top of the glass... The color is a flat black... A good bit of lacing clings to the sides of the glass... Not a bad looking brew by any means...

S - No joke - This one smells like a 50/50 blend of freshly opened pack of thin mint girl scout cookies and freshly churned mint chocolate chip ice cream... The fresh mint adds wonderful depth and complexity... The rich dark chocolate notes truly accentuate the overall aroma... Very unique and very pleasing...

T - As expected the mint and chocolate notes are at the forefront... The mint takes one a fresh and earthy character... The cocoa chocolate nibs are secondary and nicely round out the flavor profile... However the two flavors seem to conflict a tad bit and don"t quite compliment one another as I would expect... There is also a hint of roasted malt beneath the surface...

M - Dense and medium bodied... Starts with a bit of sharpness and finishes a touch on the thin side... Limited carbonation... Kind of chalky... A bit off...

D - This one is a bit less then the sum of is parts... The solid appearance and outstanding aroma aren't quite enough to overcome a muddled flavor profile and slightly off mouthfeel... The end result is an average at best offering... I love the boundaries that Spring House pushes and challenges with most of their beers... Some are hits and some are misses... While I love the idea, this one is a bit of a miss in my opinion...
