COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Grandma could always make a mean dessert. Come see what fresh mint grown at my house does to our Iron Horse Stout(think peppermint patty). Tapped only on Sunday December 17th during Christmas at the Brewery.

Very prominent fresh mint nose on top of the stout’s chocolate exhalation. The flavor was a nicely balanced chocolate/mint profile with touches of roasted barley, nuts, vanilla, and cocoa. Pretty thin mouthfeel, but not distractingly so. All in all, a decent holiday treat.

Pours a deep black/brown with ruby edges and a slim skin & halo. Mint and menthol overtake a chocolaty dark malt aroma. Ditto on the flavor, which has a Wrigley’s Spearmint essence followed by a wash of roasty, bitter black patent. Okay.

Matt asked me tonight if brewery experiments were "worth it". In a heartbeat my answer was "most definitely". This holds true even if the experiments don’t appeal to 100% of the people 100% of the time. Skilled brewers who take risks capture the beer world’s attention and a brewer will rise to the top of his field if some of those experiments are well-received.

Draft goblet, during Chirstmas at the Brewery. Standard stout black. Almost no head, but not from lack of carbonation. Yep, and there’s a sweet cocoa and mint smell. Taste is the same way: seems to be chocolate added besides the usual chocolate roast. And definitely fresh mint leaves at work. But then there’s a studly hop profile at the back of the throat, too. Tastes work well together. Maybe the cocoa is a touch out of balance, but I find no harsh roasties or excess mint. This is a very limited release. Hope someone else got a hold of one.
