3.56/5  rDev -8.5%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

A: Looks like your average stout, black with a thin brown head that sits for a short time.

S: The mint is apparent here, adding a cool, minty note to the coffee beer background. It's nearly approaching Thin Mint cookie levels of aromatic deliciousness. The nose definitely sets up high expectations.

T: Somewhat of a letdown here. The mint is much more subtle than the nose let on and gets lost in the typical coffee beer sharpness.

M: Feel is much too thin. This is the kind of body you shoot for with a passable porter. If you want to call it a proper American stout, you need a bigger body. No surprise from Odd Side in this department though.

O: It seems like every other release from Odd Side is a coffee beer, and I for one think it's played out. We get it, craft lovers like coffee and coffee beers, but there's no need for one brewery to beat it to death. Whatever coffee magic they employed to make their Chocolade Koffie stout was nowhere to be found here. Just your typical harsh beer coffee covering up a novel ingredient that had more potential without the java beans. Until these guys quit the barista act and make some full-bodied beers, I don't think I'll be giving them any more of my money. Admittedly though, this was a fair beer, and if you like coffee beers this is obviously for you.
