COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Derby Day is a Mint Stout. Inspired by the classic American cocktail, the Mint Julep, this unusual and extraordinary beer combines rich chocolate malt flavours with lingering fresh mint. A Classic combination in a unique format – a beer that has to be drunk to be believed! Popular in the States, this is our Yorkshire take on a very special beer style.

On tap at North Bar, pours dark brown / near-black with a small tan head. Nose is fairly minty, along with roasted malt and cocoa. Flavour doesn’t bring out much mint, just the roasted malt and maybe some coffee grinds. Fairly weak stuff, but certainly nothing offensive about this. Okay.

BeerViking (2473) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 23, 2014
Cask at CBC Covent Garden, near black with a thin tan crema, nose has faint choc and mint notes, vaguely reminiscent (in a good way!) of Fry’s Peppermint Cream. Body is rick, thick, dark and creamy, with notes of black treacle, cocoa and coffee, and yes, lightly of mint, all with a touch of umami and a warming alcohol bite. Amazingly delicious.

Craft Covent Garden. Cask. Almost opaque dark brown beer, smal pale tan head. Palate is light and a little soft. Fine carbonation. Sweetish dark malts with well integrated sweet mint. Touch of dark fruits adds another dimension. Finishes smooth with a whisper of ester. The mint just makes this slip down easy.

Theydon_Bois (8720) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - JUN 1, 2014
Cask at the Wenlock Arms, 28/05/14. Black with a moderate tan covering that thins to a swirl. Nose is roast malt, mint well evident, liqourice, spice, dark chocolate. Taste comprises After Eight Mints, aniseed, leather, dark chocolate, root liqourice, minty tones, light roast. Medium + bodied, fine carbonation, minty tones in a choco roasted close. Decent enough fayre, not a mint overload and delivers its intended statement. Decent.

wimpyjoe (3908) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 31, 2014
Cask @ White Hart, Todmorden. Black with an off-white creamy head. Strong with a high sweet aroma. It’s more of a sweet stout than a milk one in taste, but creamy enough in its texture.

Cask at the Tockwith Festival. Black with a tan head. Good chocolate and mint flavours. Works much better than expected. Quite sweet. A good beer.
