Opaque ebony body with a thin brown head; lots of sticky lacing on the glass. Prominent mint and chocolate aromas (like a Girl Scout chocolate mint cookie). Flavor mirrors the aroma -- sweet and minty; a smooth vanilla line running through it all. Medium-heavy body; silky smooth mouthfeel.
Now here is a treat of a stout! The can label mentions spearmint and peppermint in the ingredients, and they very much make their presence known, yet everything really gels and mixes together nicely. It's a grand mixture of chocolate and mint flavors with great balance overall. Nothing hammers you at the expense of other flavor components. Rich, deeply complex and very much a slow-drinking stout to savor and swoon over. Unique and deeply enjoyable.
