This years release is delicious. Its like drinking a not-so-sweet mint chocolate chip ice-cream. The mint and chocolate balance is spot on; definitely one of the best mint chocolate stouts I've had that's not BA.

This was better than I expected. The full bodied, dark chocolate aspect melds wonderfully with the mint. Very nice.

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.
