Strange aroma... Kinda has a cat pee thing going on.

Great mouthfeel and flavor... Dry, dark chocolate with a nice amount of herbal mint coming through. I imagine the mint was more upfront a year ago, but I'm still pleased with what comes through.

I honestly forgot I had this in my cellar, and I cannot remember who gave it to me as an extra. Whoever you are, thanks for the awesome extra.

Poured 12oz into teku.
A- oil black with a dark tan single finger head
S- tons of dark chocolate, nutty, some faint mint, smells like sugar cookie
T- again tons of dark chocolate that never fades, plenty of lactose, slightly sweet, dark fruit, nice faint fresh minty finish
M- thick, almost grainy, very enjoyable.
O- amazing dark chocolate stout, texture is great, very well don't imperial stout. With that being said I wish there was more mint, it's definitely present but the chocolate is so great, you miss a lot of mint. I loved this brew

Dark black in color and light does not penetrate it. Minimal head on the pour, but the remaining foam does longer. Aroma is pretty weak. Maybe just a bit of mint. This one definitely more minty than it is chocolaty. The mint is more in the forefront and is almost a bit of a burn on the tastebuds on the way down. The chocolate flavor quickly follows and blends together well in the aftertaste. A pretty smooth mouthfeel.
