on tap at bainbridge barrel house
Inky black pour with a voluminous toasted graham colored head. Thick retention which takes a spell to settle down, leaving patchy coats of lacing on the glass.
Mint chocolate chip ice cream - seriously. Touches of milk sugar, cream, semisweet chocolates and a dash of boozy warmth.
Minty, sweet and warm right up front. As if someone just did a fresh chiffonade of mint leaves right into the brew, tempered by heavy roasted malts, dark sweetness, cream and chocolates. Warm in the finish with lingering mint.
Heavier body, decent carbonation, chewy and sticky on the tongue. This one is pretty simple - if you enjoy mint chocolate chip ice cream (which happens to be my fiancees favorite), you will most likely love this beer. If not, I can easily see the mint overpowering your senses in a not so pleasant sort of way.

Poured a black liquid with a half inch or so of tan foam that settled to a ringlet. Nice aroma of roasty malts and chocolate, with the mint hiding in the background. The taste was about the same as the aroma, with the mint coming out a bit more, giving a sensation of Andes chocolate mints, or Thin Mints. Body was about medium, with a decent mouthfeel short on smoothness. Okay overall, but the bourbon barrel version was a surprising improvement.
