My first beer from Spring House and and all I can say is WOW!

A - Beautiful dark body with a nice brown 2 finger head. Head retention was great and lasted to the end.

S - Absolutely amazing chocolate peppermint patty smell. Reminds me of winter. I couldn't keep my nose out of the glass.

T - Peppermint is at the front and pretty powerful. It is not one of those stouts that advertise x ingredient then you spend the whole glass trying to taste it. The Chocolate is a little more relaxed and follows nicely.

M - The peppermint is up front and melds nicely with the chocolate notes, very smooth beer. Even at 9% everything compliments each other.

O - Great winter brew, I would definitely recommend to anyone who likes a good stout. Got a growler at the local 6-pack shop. Now I really wish I was able to try the PB stout before they kicked the keg.

Nonic pint glass at the restaurant in Lancaster

Short head over opaque black body. Tons of lacing

Aromas are full of peppermint candy, dark chocolate, and a slight roastiness

Wow, unique and completely awesome. Full on peppermint, roasted malt, dark chocolate, and a faint coffee grind. This is like drinking a York peppermint patty. Amazing.

Well carbonated but not over the top. Really easy drinking for the ABV... goes down like a 6 % stout. Just wish they would serve it a little warmer.

A must try - especially this time of year.

Made with real peppermint and added throughout the brewing process.

A - Served with a pitch black body and a one finger, brown head...the head fell to a wispy cap that held itself until the last sip...lacing was scattered down the sides of the glass

S - Unbelievable...you can smell the peppermint from an arms length away...at first whiff I was reminded of a Peppermint Patty/Andes Mint/Thin Mint...it's just the perfect combination of peppermint and chocolate

T - There is gobs of peppermint right from the get-go...you can tell that it's very fresh and, of course, very minty...the chocolate flavors roll in and balance out some of the intense-ness that the peppermint is providing...the chocolate shows some sweetness and makes you think milk, but it also had a slightly bitter side that makes you think dark...the peppermint does come back right at the end to provide a minty blast

M - Medium bodied...it's not quite full enough...the peppermint adds a brightness and the chocolate takes the edge off of the peppermint so it doesn't become too much

O - Wow, this give Big Gruesome a run for it's money...I could drink more of Big Gruesome because I like chocolate and peanut butter but the peppermint and chocolate are ridiculous in this beer...the nose is spot on Peppermint Patty and the flavors reminded me of an Andes Mint...well done Matt!

Served on tap in a pint glass

Appearance – The beer is served a nearly pitch black color with a bit of tan foam on the surface of the brew. The head fades quite fast, leaving a trace level of lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell – The aroma of the beer was big of chocolate smells with a good deal of roasted malt. Along with these aromas are some sweet vanilla and caramel smells as well as a bit of a raisin and cherry smell. A very heavy amount of mint is there as well giving it an overall minty dark sweet chocolate smell.

Taste – The taste begins with a sweet chocolate flavor mixed with lots of roasted malt. A good level of vanilla and caramel sweetness are present from the start, with just some lighter amount of mint. While the mint is lighter at the start, it really grows quite intense as the flavor advances, melding very well with the sweet chocolate flavors of the brew. The roasted flavors of the taste dwindle a bit at the end, but are replaced by more sweet chocolate. With the transitions of flavors that occur throughout the taste, one is left with a nice sweet mint chocolate flavor to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel-The body of the beer is medium in its thickness and creaminess with a carbonation level that is on the lighter side. A slightly thicker and creamier body may have been a bit better for the mint chocolate flavors of the brew, but even with that said the lower carbonation was quite nice, and overall the mouthfeel of the brew was good.

Overall – This is a fantastic dessert beer. It tastes just like a mint chocolate bar. While not one I would want every day, for a sweeter dessert style beer, this one is fantastic.
