Peppermint porter? Yes, I judged the book by its cover. I was prepared to hate it but it is pretty darn good. Wanted to pour it over a scoop of ice cream, or make a float, and not sure I wanted more than 4oz but so much better than I imagined. They steep loose leaf peppermint tea to add flavor that is distinctive but not overpowering. Actually plays nicely with the sweetness of the malt and the toasty nature of the porter. Medium mouthfeel and pours dark with a nice head. Pretty creative and very festive.

Sample @ Brewvival 2014. Deep brown pour with a small head. Distinct smell of junior mint candies. Some chocolate, but mint takes center stage. Strong menthol flavor. Kools. Earthy dark roasted chocolate. Mild spice. Full body, soft carbonation. Im not massive on the mint character.

Kentucky Fried Charleston Trip Beer #111. Draft at Brewvival. Pours a dark brown color with a thin creamy head. Decent head retention. Aroma of peppermint, dry roasted malts, bitter chocolate. The taste is peppermint patties and mild roast. Medium bodied.

Had this at the brewery a few months ago, and its the beer I remember the most. Wonderful and interesting balance of deep malt character and bright peppermint. I can think of no other way to describe this beer best than, "A refreshing porter." Never thought youd hear that, huh?
