I picked up this purely on faith hoping the mint would be subtle...

A-Black as the day is long

Smell-Overpowering mint sticks in your nose for a while

Taste- again overpowering mint, akin to toothpaste or a stick of gum, MINT BOMB

Mouthfeel- This beer was smooth and gave you a just brushed teeth kind of feel maybe a good breakfast beer?

Overall- Personally I hated this beer. the only reason i picked this up was because of the 2 previous seasonal stouts that were quite good. again i was hoping for a very played back mint with more chocolate and vanilla but all that was there was a mint bomb, not for me

12oz can; Globe Drug; 2014?; review a week later; aroma was interesting, but taste was very strange. Glad I tried, but would not drink again.

I love Ska, but I think this one is rated way too high overall. I got more toothpaste-like flavor than stout.
