On Tap at Black and Bleu Resturant.

I was rather surprised when I saw this come out, and there was little head and it appeared to be more of a porter than a stout. Nose is of sweet peppermint followed by a hint of chocolate.

Taste is right there with it, the initial wash of chocolate and sweet roasted malts followed by the sweet peppermint finish. The peppermint in this is more candy peppermint, not the actual plant peppermint or a Starlight peppermint. It is much sweeter.

Mouthfeel is what really could have pulled this beer together, but it doesn’t. Thin and watery, its almost too thin to drink with the flavors going on. A rich body or even milk stout body would have done this wonders, but instead the watery body and little carbonation left a lot to be desired.

Certainly an interesting idea, and I think with some work and a heavier body, this would be an exceptional dessert beer.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a bomber into a Brewer's Art goblet. Moderately aggressive hand. No identifiable date on the label. There is a cartoon momma-demon servin' up skull cookies.

A: Essentially black with dark brown at the edges. 1/4 finger dark tan head that quickly fades to a thin film. Nice lacing.

S: Dark chocolate with a mint flare. Some peppermint and some eucalyptus. Lightly nutty.

T: Roasted malt with tangy undertones kicks it off. Develops into a somewhat peculiar bitter-eucalyptus flavor. Semi-dry finish. Dark chocolate. Peppermint. Piney hop notes on the back end. No significant alcohol presence to speak of. A bit hollow overall.

M: Moderate to light carbonation with a relatively light body. Feels a bit thin.

O: I was hoping for a thick, stick-to-your-ribs stout-cum-York peppermint patty, but I don't think it quite delivered. Looks good and smells nice, but falls a bit flat on the palate. The bitterness seems out of place with the chocolate/mint. And the chocolate/mint seems out of place without any sweetness/malt/body. Had potential though.

Prost!
