Pours a black color. 1/2 inch head of a tan color. Great retention and great lacing. Smells of strong mint, strong roasted malt, slight sweet malt, and slight alcohol. Fits the style of an American Double / Imperial Stout. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of strong mint, strong roasted malt, slight sweet malt, and a hint of grass. Overall, great appearance, good aroma, and a very strongly mint body. The mint was not overly sweet, but instead much more pungent. I would have preferred either less mint, or a less pungent mint.

You can really smell the mint and chocolate like junior mints. It's jet black and smooth. The taste is like the nose and you are really not let down between the nose and the taste. It is easy to drink a lot of this. A very balanced flavor profile. Many people we shared a growler with on Dark Lord Day also commented that the mint was very balanced. This is an excellent beer that I hope is brewed often.

A - pours dark in color with a chocolaty head on top

S - nose is lots of cocoa chocolate with a cooling mint

- starts off really chocolaty - think a hybrid between milk and dark chocolate. More dry cocoa flavors push through the middle but are overtaken by a really nice cooling mint flavor. Ends with a mint chocolate combo, akin to an Andes mint.

M - full bodies and smooth as it goes down.

D - another winner from Perennial's stout line up. It's name describes exactly what it is. Well executed stout, looking forward to trying again.
