Had this at the August 27th bottle release. 4 oz pour from a tasting snifter. Since all of the variants of Oil were quite similar to the regular, I'm using my review of the regular as a base and supplementing when necessary.

4.5 A: Black. Came with just a touch of light brown head that left lots of lacing.

4.5 S: Rich, sweet malty base. Plenty of bittersweet chocolate and caramel. Moderate roastiness, toasty, with touches of coffee and molasses. The nuttiness from the walnuts makes this a special, truly unique beer. The candi sugar adds a final layer of complexity. The mint makes this interesting and it isn't completely subtle. Apparently there are cocoa nibs in here, but it's hard to specifically pick them out.

4.0 T: Full flavored chocolate, caramel, molasses, and a general neutral maltiness. A touch of coffee with a moderate roast. Again, the walnuts add a toasty nuttiness that I cannot get enough of. The mint does nothing but distract and adds nothing of value. Fortunately, it doesn't do too much damage.

4.0 M: Medium to heavier medium body. Good creaminess and super smooth. Same as the regular.

4.0 D: Love the Oil. Love it on-tap. Love the variants, but not this one so much.

On tap at jackie os

A-dark body with a tan head that quickly disapates

S-very minty. I am not a mint person and this is very minty

T-follows the nose to a t. But it is an oil, and that's a sacing quality

M-medium body and smooth

O-if you like mint, you will love this beer
