On Tap at Black and Bleu Resturant.

I was rather surprised when I saw this come out, and there was little head and it appeared to be more of a porter than a stout. Nose is of sweet peppermint followed by a hint of chocolate.

Taste is right there with it, the initial wash of chocolate and sweet roasted malts followed by the sweet peppermint finish. The peppermint in this is more candy peppermint, not the actual plant peppermint or a Starlight peppermint. It is much sweeter.

Mouthfeel is what really could have pulled this beer together, but it doesn’t. Thin and watery, its almost too thin to drink with the flavors going on. A rich body or even milk stout body would have done this wonders, but instead the watery body and little carbonation left a lot to be desired.

Certainly an interesting idea, and I think with some work and a heavier body, this would be an exceptional dessert beer.

I had already made an assumption of what this beer would taste like so when I finally tried it it tasted very different from my expectations so I was a bit disappointed. The mint is very noticeable in the smell and the taste. The chocolate not so much. I expected a thin mint girl scout cookie so I was disappointed when there wasn't a huge flavor of chocolate. It's still a good beer, just not one that is good for my bar.
