Dark mahogany color in the globe glass with a surprisingly dark foam. Pleasantly sudsy in the mouth. Malty body. Tantalizing powerful aroma of mint, slightly alarming at first, but there is a hoppy edge that provides the right balance.
Really minty flavor, with the chocolate not far behind. It starts out sweet but reverts to a dark and beery flavor. It's an engaging transformation. There is a lot of rough and blackened flavor here, but it's all mellowed by the sweet malt. The flavorings seem just right for the rambunctious stout base.
Highly drinkable and surprisingly silly flavor, but a real treat for an oddball experience. From the 12 oz can purchased at Wilbur's Total Beverage in Fort Collins.
