Bottled March 12, 2014

L - Pours a thick black body with a mocha one finger head. The head has tight, fine bubbles with an oily appearance on the side of the glass. Not much retention as it dissipates to a ring around the glass.

S - Right away, I get a pleasant mix of semi-sweet cocoa nibs and mint. The mint isn't of the peppermint variety, but more herbal in nature. If you love chocolate mint, this is it.

T - The taste follows the smell. Semi-sweet chocolate intertwined with mint. The mint isn't overpowering and shares the spotlight. As it warms, the roasty characteristics of the stout come forth.

F - Medium to full bodied with a low carbonation. Has a smooth, velvety texture and tight carbonation bubbles in the mouth.

O - An awesome mix of mint and semi-sweet chocolate. I can see this as a dessert beer or one for a beer share. But, I'm loving it all to myself.

A huge thank you to Jeffo, always surprising me with interesting things like this. Cheers bud!!

Appearance. Pours pretty thick and black with a big 3+ fingers of rich creamy brown head.

Smell. Dark chocolate and scope mouthwash. I wish my brain didn't associate that, but it did. I blame my buddy for saying earlier that he bough 4 bottle of mouthwash on the weekend. Who the fuck buys that much mouthwash, is he drinking the stuff?? Anyways, There's a touch of dark roasty malt coming through as well but the minty chocolate is cromulent

Taste. Mint and some light woody/grassy herbs. Dark chocolate and dry dark super-roasty malts, bitter finish

Mouthfeel. On the lower side of full bodied, low carbonation.

Overall. I was really excited to try this one but it just didn't play out as well as it could have. Always fun to try something different and this is no exception.

Poured from 750 ml bottle dated 3/2014 into snifter.

A: Pours motor oil black with small one finger mocha colored head that settled quickly to a thin ring. Some minimal lacing.

S: Sweet dark chocolate, charred toast, rich espresso. Just the slightest hint of peppermint leaves lingering in the background.

T: Follows the nose fairly closely with the biggest notes of rich dark chocolate and espresso. A little mint aftertaste but barely noticeable. Reminds me a good quality chocolate fudge.

M: Full bodied and average carbonation. There is a little oily texture to the finish.

O: Very nice stout. I was worried that the mint would be overpowering, but it compliments the other flavors nicely.
