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.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

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.
