I tried this at Pete's Place in Taylor, MI. It poured an opaque dark with thin tan head that left a nice ring lace. The scent had some roast and touch of mint. The taste started toasty then finishes with some mint. The mouthfeel is lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall it was an interesting stout.

Bottling date of 10/03/17

Appearance - Pours black with a hint of cola brown where light can penetrate. Tan, near finger width head shows fair retention before dying to a thin, broken layer of suds. Small spots make up the lacing.

Smell - Roast and rich chocolate with underlying mint.

Taste - Follows the nose. A triad of strong flavors, hitting on roast and chocolate upfront before the mint develps mid-taste and ties it all together in the finish. Mostly minty aftertaste but hints of roast and chocolate can still be found.

Mouthfeel - Mediumto-full- in body with fair, bitey carbonation. A bit of a cola-like texture with a dry, slightly sticky finish.

Overall - Good stout, but something feels off. Maybe a lack of hops adding some counterbalance. It's more or less a dessert beer, though, and it hits the mark that it was going for, so props.

Black in color and impenetrable to light. There's a half inch of very creamy tightly knit brown head. The aroma is a well balanced blend of mint and dark malt. I'm tasting a fairly well balanced blend of dark malt and mint. I think a bit of chocolate might have helped this beer. The mouthfeel is lightly creamy, but the mint creates a very nice cooling sensation.

Not as strong on the mint as I'd like but super easy to drink and quite pleasurable

Served in a snifter

This beer pours black and is topped with two inches of tan head that leaves a little lacing.

I smell mint and chocolate. I think that is exactly what Right Brain was shooting for.

It tastes like a peppermint patty. The mint and chocolate have a nice balance where neither dominates but compliment each other.

It is not quite as full in the mouthfeel as I would like.

This is a tasty brew. I do not like a lot of mint, but I do in my stouts for some reason. I find it refreshing for a heavy beer.

Pour is black with a few fingers of khaki head, settles to a thin layer of swirling bubbles with no lacing. Aroma is fresh, bright mint, roasted espresso beans and bitter cocoa. Taste becomes closer and closer to thin mint cookies as it warms: crisp mint, dark chocolate bite, and dark malt. A little too thin on the feel for my taste, but overall refreshing and pretty on point for what the brewers intended.
