3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a clean black color with a very small tan head. Smell is roast, both burnt toast and coffee being present. Just the smallest hint of mint. Taste is definitively roast, some chocolate notes, very dry and not at all bitter. The mint flavor is very subdued, coming out mostly in the finish, and still subtle. A decent stout, but I’d actually like to get more mint out of it.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours very dark with a thin brown head and good lacing. Aroma is decent, with mild roast and light coffee with some noticeable mint. Taste is OK, with a pretty thin roast flavor profile, that goes down quick and easy with just a hint of mint hanging around. I might give it 1 or 2 pity points if it was Christmas Eve or something, but still...

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On nitro tap at town hall lanes, pours a dark brown/black with a small tan head. Mild mint aroma, chocolate, and roasted malt. Slick texture, chocolate, roasted malt, coffee, really light mint. Can barely taste the mint, flavors don’t really mesh together well. I’ve had worse.

A fine stout but I struggled to get mint out of it, except for a light Thin Mint cookie. Decent. Nice bottle--still a sucker for wax.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle with waxed top. Near black with a thin tan head. Roasted malts, milk chocolate, soft peppermint, mocha, and minerally. Taste is lightly sweet, a bit more on the dry side. Body is medium light with a chalky feel. Surprised not to see more mint stouts, dessert-like.

Pitch black with foamy tan head. Toasty mint chocolate aroma. Tastes like a thin mint. Surprised how much I liked it. Roasty, minty, chocolatey.

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours dark with an off white head that fades quickly. Not really detecting much complexity in the aroma, almost has an off putting smell with a hint of peppermint. Taste shines in comparison to aroma, nice coffee and mint flavors that aren’t over bearing. overall, not bad!
