3.88/5  rDev +8.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Black coffee. Not a whole lot of foam, but there is a thin layer of lacing. Fairly thin overall.

Smell: Mint and cocoa. Very fresh. Would like it a bit stronger.

Taste/Mouthfeel: Strong dark chocolate. A bit liquer-like. Mint in the finish. Very clean. Seems a bit thin at first, but there's a nice minty freshness in the finish.

Overall: I would have liked this with a bit more umph in the presentation, but I did enjoy this.

Serving type: can

4.33/5  rDev +20.6%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

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.
