The nightcap of an evening of amazing beers. Once again, my deepest thanks must go out to Cfan67. Dan, you truly are the man. Opened with Joe and Colleen, with a pour saved for my dear friend, Eddy. Poured from a 750 ml bottle into a Voodoo Barrel Room tasting snifter.

A- The beer pours black as a moonless night and forms a thin, mocha head. No light getting through, whatsoever. As with the BA Sump, this beer has great legs... I love legs.

S- Lord, have mercy... This smells like a York patty with a splash of bourbon. Perennial delivers with the mint, as dark chocolate and bourbon play the background. This is an outstanding aroma.

T- I didn't think the aroma could be outdone, but splendid dark chocolate flavors prove me wrong. There is a minty coolness on the flavor, though the delightful, fudgy, chocolate flavors are on display here. Quite understated bourbon and roast keep this beer from being too sweet. However, this is definitely a dessert beer, and one of which I am now quite fond.

O- This was the perfect nightcap. My friends and I did not have high expectations for this beer, and that allowed it to over-deliver. I'm not a huge "mint-chocolate" guy, but I can't get over how surprisingly delicious this was. I would jump at any opportunity to have another shot at this beer. Bravo, Perennial.

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Jet black with a nice mocha head. Thick collar.

Smell - Mint and chocolate. Still strong mint, but the whiskey cuts it well. Whiskey and vanilla. Mild oak. Smells good.

Taste - Mint. Chocolate. Mild whiskey. Chocolate comes back and the whiskey lingers in the finish. Vanilla rounds it out, but it's a mild barrel character.

Mouthfeel - Thick. Medium carbonation. Slightly boozy.

Overall - The whiskey cuts the mint enough to improve on the base beer.
