1.72/5  rDev -33.3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 1.75 | taste: 1.75 | feel: 1.25 | overall: 1

Enjoyed on tap at The Armsby Abbey's Stoutfest 2013. Reviewed from notes. Poured into a tulip.

A - Poured a nice deep, dark brownish black hue with an off white one finger creamy head that fades to leave creamy lacing. Excellent appearance.

S - Aaaand we're awful. Yeah. Minty colgate toothpaste, super, super faint chocolate, with an oddly enough very macro aroma to it ala Keystone Light. Very shocking.

T - Yep, taste is just as bad. More of the fake minty toothpaste, chocolate water (emphasis on water), very light malts, and macro lager like off flavour.

M - Mouthfeel..yeah..its water. Its like a glass of awful, awful flavoured water. Only reason I didnt give it a 1 was because this had to have carbonation at some point in the process to result in a head, just disappeared between glass and my tongue.

O - Overall, this was one of, if not the worst beer I've ever had. No clue if it was a bad keg or what but this was simply abysmal.

Served on tap at Bangers and Lace. The appearance is dark with no life... no head and no lacing present. The nose features deep roast and the mint is seemingly absent. There is some chocolate character, but it is overall very mild. The taste is very underwhelming with some roast up front that becomes thin and metallic. The mint is present on the palate but not in a good way. It features an earthy herbal quality that doesn't have any of the pleasant components that I like of mint. The mouthfeel is thin with mild carbonation. Overall, the mint is not a star in this beer, nor is the grain bill. This was not an enjoyable brew for me.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

330ml bottle served in a chalice.

A: Pours a dark brown cloudy color forming a medium beige head. Low retention and some lacings left

S: Great. Sweet. Dark chocolate, coffee, mint and roasted malts

T: Follows the nose: Sweet candy sugar upfront followed by dark chocolate, coffee, mint and roasted malts. A bit sour. Light hops bitterness

M: Medium creamy and molasses body. Medium to low carbonation. Sweet upfront and mild bitter end. Aftertaste is mainly chocolate and mint

O: Good drinkability. Interesting combination of Stout and mint. Recommended
