Deep black with a thin fading beige head. Nose of semi sweet dark chocolate and a light mintiness with a bit of cocoa biscuit. Flavor was deep and overly sweet. Nice biscuity cocoa tones with a light and very-not overpowering mint tone. Like a Girl Scout cookie but slightly less minty.

BBB63 (6019) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - APR 20, 2013
Horizontal face off versus Perennial 17: Both bottled and served in identical snifters. The KIS poured a deep brown with a smaller tan head and spotty lace. (4) The P17 poured near opaque with a bigger frothy tan head and very good lace. (5)

The aroma of the KIS has a nice milk chocolate, walnut, roast and minty character along with some tobacco and prune. (8) The P17 aroma has far more pronounced fresh mint leave vapour but less chocolate and roast. (7) I prefer the KIS to the 17.

The taste of the P17 is very minty much like the nose with a far amount of roast and charred malt. Sort of herbal and a wee bit medicinal as well. Just not getting a lot of chocolate in the Perennial version. (7) The KIS gives much more of the Imperial character with chocolate and roast with a moderate mint note. Some smoke and char along with a dash of dark fruit twang. (8). The mouth feel on the P17 is lively and bready while the KIS is more oily , lush and aggressive. Once again another category that the KIS wins out (4 to 3).

Overall while the Perennial looks nicer and displays full on fresh mint, the KIS (Ken Schmidt/Iron Fest/Stone) just comes off more like an Imperial Stout that has mint. (KIS =15, P17 = 13)
