Draft sample during the 8/27 bottle release. Pours dark brown/black with a smaller tan head that disappears. The aroma is the usual with the addition of more chocolate and mint. The additional chocolate does balance the mint somewhat. The flavor had the roasted malt, nuts, and more chocolate than the original, which serves to add balance to the mint. Better than the mint alone, but not as good as some of the other treatments.

Draft sample during the 8/27 bottle release. Pours dark brown/black with a smaller tan head that disappears. The aroma is the usual with the addition of mint. I would have thought that this would be a good combination, but it just didnt completely work for me. The flavor had the roasted malt, nuts, and some chocolate for the original, but not enough to balance the mint. Still worth a try. My least favorite of the treatments.

On tap @ Jackie Os. Dark Pour with a thin patch of beige head. Aroma is you guessed it chocolate & mint added to the mix of the normal Oil. Very nice treatment that adds a new level of complexity. The chocolate really seemed to balance out the mint.

On tap @ Jackie Os. Dark Pour with a thin patch of beige head. Aroma is you guessed it MINT added to the mix of the normal Oil. Very nice treatment tho my least favorite that adds a new level of complexity. Maybe it just wasnt for me.

Had this at the August 27th bottle release. 4 oz pour from a tasting snifter. Since all of the variants of Oil were quite similar to the regular, Im using my review of the regular as a base and supplementing when necessary. 4.5 A: Black. Came with just a touch of light brown head that left lots of lacing. 4.5 S: Rich, sweet malty base. Plenty of bittersweet chocolate and caramel. Moderate roastiness, toasty, with touches of coffee and molasses. The nuttiness from the walnuts makes this a special, truly unique beer. The candi sugar adds a final layer of complexity. The mint makes this interesting and it isnt completely subtle. Apparently there are cocoa nibs in here, but its hard to specifically pick them out. 4.0 T: Full flavored chocolate, caramel, molasses, and a general neutral maltiness. A touch of coffee with a moderate roast. Again, the walnuts add a toasty nuttiness that I cannot get enough of. The mint does nothing but distract and adds nothing of value. Fortunately, it doesnt do too much damage. 4.0 M: Medium to heavier medium body. Good creaminess and super smooth. Same as the regular. 4.0 D: Love the Oil. Love it on-tap. Love the variants, but not this one so much. Serving type: on-tap Reviewed on: 09-02-2011 03:31:30

JaBier (4842) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - SEP 6, 2011
Sample at the bottle sale on 8/27/11. Darkest brown pour with a thin tan head. Aroma of mint, chocolate and nuts. Minty flavor with the chocolate following closely before a roasty nutty finish. Tasty, but the minty chocolatey goodness seemed more pronounced in the Spumoni.

draft... the chocolate helped to balance out the mint on this but it still dominated a bit too much... worth trying over the mint
Earlier Rating: 9/2/2011 Total Score: 2.9
draft... this was my least favorite variant, the mint comes off way to strong, its medicinal and the mint doesnt help, sounded like a perfect combo but the mint is tough to work with

Dogbrick (7839) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 30, 2011
Sample at the Jackie Os Bottle Sale on 08/27/2011. Blackish pour with a thin and wispy light beige head that dissipates quickly to an outer ring. Short strings of lacing. Aroma of chocolate primarily with some nuts and mint in the background. Rich body with flavors of bittersweet chocolate, roasted nuts and mild mint. Not quite the after-dinner mint flavor I was expecting, as a matter of fact the Spumoni treatment seems more minty. The finish is chocolatey with a short minty aftertaste. Pretty good overall but not as enjoyable as some of the other variations.
