On Tap at the bottle release.

A: Pours black with some whispy light brown lace. Looks very creamy for being such a still- low carbed stout.

S: The smell is comprised of dark bitter chocolate with some mint in the background. Seems to have the Aphrodite nuttiness in full effect along with a bit of spice.

T: The dark bitter chocolate and sharp tasting mint battle each other for attention. The flavors kind of muddle together and seem harsh at times. The base stout shows well but I wouldn't say the two additions to this really help. The mint lingers along with some dark roasted malt and a touch of bitterness.

M: Nice body and creamy mouthfeel next to it's OoA counterpart cousins.

O: This wasn't bad, it grew on me slightly as it warmed. Overall I was hoping for something a little more smooth and seamless from this variant. I would say this is my least favorite treatment out of the lot; it had some stiff competition though.

Side by side with the other variants. This one is Brad's favourite but apparently we have very different tastes!

Very little head. Smells minty and weird. A bit medicinal as a result. Very harsh and minty on the nose and tongue. Everything else is masked by this. Overall not very drinkable as a result. My least favourite of the variants. No real chocolate noticeable. Sorry Brad... not a fan!
