On draft at brewery, poured a cloudy brown color with aromas of mint, light chocolate, some malt, and a touch of earth. Flavors are the same with some light mint and loads of chocolate in the flavor. Decent beer overall.

Light brown color with off white head. Mint overwhelms the nose maybe slight chocolate hints. Mints hits you right up front and finishes mint chocolate. Mid pallet is chocolate malt sweetness. My score might be a bit low because mint chocolate isn’t my favorite.

On draft at Cigar City. Thanks to jcwattsrugger for sharing his. Pours a hazy brown with a white head. Nose is some earthy notes, tobacco, some light chocolate, and some mild peppermint. Flavor follows: nice earthy notes, some malt, and some chocolate with peppermint. Medium in body and a nice liquid ode to Father Christmas.
