Bottle poured into a 12 oz snifter.
A: Deep dark black, one finger of fine brown head. It's a coffee stout - its dark. Check.
S: Coffee, mint, chocolate, mint, mint, mint.
T: Rich toasted malts, strong rich dark roasted coffee (its dark but just before burnt), the mint is omnipresent and perfectly balanced. Dark chocolate. Unlike other mint beers I've had this is minty without being astringent or biting - think gum, not toothpaste. Very mild but welcome hoppy finish helps balance the mint.
M: Rich, thick, molasses. Medium carbonation, perfect for the release of flavors.
O: A very unique style done well and worth a try, or a try again. Not your everyday stout but a perfect winter alternative for mint chocolate chip ice cream.
