On tap at WE tap room, and the last drop of it to boot. Was suspicious of the mint/stout combo, but it works. Mint sweetness adds to the nice stout body and characteristics. Silky head on this, nice looking and great tasting.

Draft at the brewery taproom... Pours the standard black, looks a little viscous, but not what I expect 10% to look like... Thin dark tan head... Nose is surprisingly good, peppermint is accentuated by a sorta caramel/malty sweetness, I guess the maltiness sorta tempers the mint and makes it seem more natural. The flavor is pretty good too... peppermint and residual maltiness/cocoa element work very well together... Body is a little thin, and one glass was MORE than enough for me personally. I normally don't like "peppermint" anything, but this one really surprised me... I've had some mint stouts over the years and every one of them have been terrible, unbalanced and artificial... Woodland seemed to recognize the potential flaws and made a nice beer. Impressive delivery.
