4.25/5  rDev +10.4%

Undated bottle at 40 degrees into imperial pint glass
Aroma of roasted malt and a hint of spice.
Head small (< 1 cm), light brown, creamy, fully diminishing to a 2 mm layer
Lacing virtually none – few small clusters of bubbles, not lasting
Body dark brown to black, opaque
Flavor of roasted malt, chocolate, and a little tea spiciness. No alcohol, no hops, no diacetyl.
Palate medium to full, creamy, soft carbonation

Good. Very, very good. I wish I had purchased several bottles. Besides beginning as a lovely stout, the tea adds an interesting dimension and slight spiciness. This seems a little thinner than the Gonzo Imperial Porter, yet is still creamy and smooth.

Pours jet black with a brown head. In the aroma, sweet tea with a small roasted malt. In the taste, roasty caramel, with coffee and sweet tea notes all the way through. A small bite and a medium bodied mouthfeel, with a dryer roasty caramel malt in the aftertaste. The smell and taste of tea, with the look and aftertaste of a stout, interestingly different.

A: inky black body under a finger of mocha-colored foam in a large snifter; left behind a few motes

S: even though its "green tea" stout, I could've sworn I smelled mint amid the dark roasted malts and lighter herbal notes

T: dark malty flavors seem to take a back seat to the flavors of green tea and herbs, mint-like again, bolstered with some boozy vanilla suggestions and a even a hint of espresso

M: thin for a stout, smooth, rather clean-finishing (again, for a stout)

O: this beer tasted very green to me - green tea, green mint, green herbs, but also "green" meaning not quite fully developed, too. I am not a real fan of mint beer, and this was reminiscent of that. A decent departure/take on the stout for the curious, fans of "minty"/herbal stouts, and BAs looking for something different. Happy to have had it once, but nothing I'd personally return to.
