look: 4.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3.5

A: Murky black body with a 1/2" tan head that slowly builds as it is poured.

S: I smelled a subtle presence of green tea off the pour; however, as it sat I really couldn't set apart the aroma of the tea leaves and the dark malt.

T: I think I was expecting more green tea on the tastebuds. Maybe I had an off night but I noticed the full bodied beer overpowered this ingredient. It was a very subtle taste.

M: A typical heavy stout. Typical doesn't mean this is a negative rating. It's how an imperial stout should be. Heavy and full-bodied.

O: Prove my tastebuds wrong and pick this one up. It's well worth it for the price. I got it for $8.99 in South Jersey.

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.

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

Pours a black with a nice dense two finger coco colored head that falls oh so slowly. Leaves behind some nice lace.

Aroma is nice you notice the tea most right after pouring it seems to mellow to very nice chocolate notes on top of roasted malt backbone.

Taste is big roasted malts with hints of green tea up front. Sweet roasted notes with chocolate spring up in the middle and linger into the finish. Finish lightens some and is lightly dry with green tea popping up again with the hops leafy greens and minty notes plus hints of tobacco. At 10% figured there would be some alcohol notes but having hard time pulling them out which is good.

Mouthfeel is when it hits the mouth seems full and robust but the finish is lighter and lightly peppy.

Overall finding this enjoyable and would purchase again the green tea notes aren't huge, guess they get covered up by all the roasted malts but it is an enjoyable stout.
